Professional statement

I'm Melissa Homner, a completely recovered MS warrior, passionate advocate for individuals who are experiencing complicated health issues and have started to give up hope of recovery. Founder and CEO of Sagebrush Wellness, a team of brilliant Functional Medicine Health Coaches, trauma and spiritual coaches.

Meet Coach Christy. Having overcome her own Meniere's autoimmune disease in 2012, she has since helped over 100 individuals locally and internationally to find their own path to wellness. Her specialty is to listen and read between the lines to discover root cause and to implement change in small ways that can have large impact.

Every member of our team has faced an autoimmune disease and WON! Our foundational belief is that when we maximize what is helpful, minimize what is harmful and prioritize an environment of healing, we create the possibility and probability of the body to recover!

We are dedicated practitioners who have completed rigorous training in advanced functional medicine sciences and validated application through serving hundreds of clients.
We have completed intensive study of chronic disease etiology, functional physiology, and evidence-based intervention, along with hands-on clinical practice. We are uniquely qualified to provide individually targeted strategies that address the multifaceted nature of today’s complex health challenges.

We have completed In depth training in nutrients and supplements. All disease processes are interconnected. We are well versed in seeing and mapping these interconnected pieces, simplifying the complex, and creating simple effective steps to allow the client to move from ill to well.

Our goal:
As functional medicine health coaches, our goal is to confidently assess complex disease patterns, inspire our clients to understand what is going on in their bodies and support them as they make lasting change, facilitate deep recovery, and support them as they experience astonishing results.

We use proven-effective support remedies and tools that address symptoms while targeting the root causes of chronic disease in the unique individual. Often, we are able to use this approach to help our clients “head off” more entrenched disease by catching imbalance in the body early and facilitating interventions that bring the body back towards wellness by optimizing the body’s own drive to be well.

Chronic disease has reached epidemic proportions and is crippling the global population and its health care systems. We are dedicated practitioners and provide the best solutions we can within today’s conventional standard of care, a standard which largely aims to alleviate symptoms and treat disease vs. preventing or reversing disease once it is present.

However, lifestyle- and environment-mediated disease, requires a new standard of care if the client is to get well and stay well long-term. This new standard requires the integration of allopathic medicine to assess and, when appropriate, alleviate immediate symptoms, with evidence-based care through the functional medicine lens to address the root causes and provide sustainable short-term and long-term relief from these debilitating conditions.
Each of our coaches have faced their own battle with autoimmune disease and won!
