Brigitte Factor is a holistic nutrition professional and health educator specializing in digestion, metabolism, and mind-body wellness.
Brigitte has advanced training in functional nutrition and holds certificates as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Master Restorative Wellness Practitioner, Epidemic Answers Health Coach, HeartMath Certified Practitioner, and Registered Yoga Teacher. In 2001 she earned an M.S. in Chemistry, after earning a dual B.S. in Chemistry and Biology. She enjoys teaching and has worked as an adjunct Bioclinical Science Instructor at the college level for 20 years.
After a near-fatal car accident, her career as a chemistry researcher and teacher took a detour. The trauma of the accident caused her to reassess her priorities and focus on healing.
When conventional medicine didn't help, Brigitte dug into the research to figure out how to reverse her chronic health conditions including diabetes, depression, and irritable bowel syndrome.
She learned through that process that the body has an innate ability to heal when given the proper nourishment. The personal transformation she experienced sparked a fire in her to create a holistic health ministry. With over a decade of experience in holistic nutrition and functional health, her mission is to educate others about the healing power of real food and real love.
She is host of the Hungry For Truth podcast and private online community, where she shares her expertise on holistic nutrition and functional health. As Co-founder and Board President of the Missouri Nutrition Alliance, Brigitte is dedicated to advancing holistic nutrition and providing community outreach across the state of Missouri.
As a holistic nutrition professional, she helps clients navigate health challenges with nutritional therapy and mind-body skills. A nutrient-dense whole foods diet is foundational to a healthy body but it’s not the complete solution to optimal health. She loves to uncover the root causes and hidden stressors that lead to dysfunction and disease. Then guides you on how to apply the appropriate solutions so you can feel your best.
