Meet Melissa McKinnon, owner of Pür You…
Certified Nutritional Practitioner, Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner, Iridologist and BIE Practitioner
Melissa McKinnon graduated from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition and is a Certified Nutritional Practitioner, Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner, Iridologist and BIE Practitioner. Melissa’s journey towards opening Pür You Heath Studio began with her son Finn, who had severe receptive and expressive language delays with some behavioural and sensory issues. After a mom in a similar situation told her about DAN doctors and probiotics, Melissa dove into reading to try to help her son; armed with the hope that something could be done. It was Finn’s zillionth but last ear infection that would save him. This time would be different: Melissa would put him on a probiotic after watching a special David Suzuki had done. One week on that probiotic and Finn at age 3, went from being able to point out one animal in a book, to all the animals in that same book. After being placed on a GF/CF diet Finn’s started talking and his behaviours decreased. Many vitamins and BIE treatments later, and Finn today has closed the gap with his peers. Finn is a brave little man, who has taught many lots. Finn’s journey has pushed Melissa to want to help others, often approaching unsuspecting strangers. Now these strangers will become clients!
