Part 1: Carrie Levine CNM, founder of Whole Woman Health & Beautiful Messy Wholeness, is a Certified Nurse Midwife & Functional Medicine Practitioner with over 20 years of combined clinical experience working with thousands of women. In this episode, she dispels the myths many think about when they think of Nurse Midwives and explains how they can help a woman not just during pregnancy, but through their whole life. She also discusses how functional medicine helps to get to the root cause of illness & disease to help people heal and live life fully.
Known for her ability to relate to her patients, Carrie welcomes the beautiful mess in each of them. Her process is centered around nutrition and lifestyle by understanding the biochemistry of physiological imbalances, recognizing symptom patterns, honoring each individual, and allowing space for mystery. Carrie addresses health issues at every stage of a woman’s life: From teenage hormone imbalances to pre- and post-pregnancy challenges, menopause, digestive issues, depression and everything in between. Her ability to hold space for women, connect the dots of seemingly unrelated symptoms, and identify underlying causes, allows her patients to thrive – emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
