About Me

IMG_0606 copy

My name is Jess Foulds and I am a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner out of New Braunfels, Texas.  I am a born and bred Texan and grew up in a small town where beef was king and Crisco was queen.  Throughout my adolescent years I struggled with being over-weight, having chronic fatigue syndrome, being sick at LEAST 5 times a year, and a host of intestinal issues.  These were my normal state.  Overweight was normal.  Being tired was normal.  I thought I was just a sickly person and took gas pills daily to try to fix my stomach issues.  NOTHING helped.  I then graduated high school and took my sickly, gassy, and overweight self to Houston, Texas to study nutrition at The University of Houston.

While I had an inkling that nutrition could be the missing piece to the puzzle, it wasn’t until I took control and started to heal myself through diet that the picture became clear.  I am lactose intolerant (explains the stomach pains), an Epstein-Barr Virus carrier (auto-immune protocol lessens the constant illness and fatigue), and have lost over 40 pounds eating whole, nutritious food.

It is through holistic nutritional practices that I have found success solving my health concerns as well as those of my clients.  But what really makes the Bum-way special is just how easy it can be to find your health.  It’s not pre-screening the restaurant to make sure there are options, counting every calorie down to the french fry, or metabolism-boosting pills. 

As a born Bum, I have found ways to make alternative therapies work for me and my lifestyle, rather than making my lifestyle work them.  I do not have a backyard garden, a personal chef, or an extra $2,000/month to spend on luxury food.  I have my education, creativity, and a sense of humor; which means if my food is bad, at least I can laugh about it!

Namaste ya’ll!
