About Dr. Piper Gibson

My Story

Hello! I’m Dr. Piper Gibson, and to be completely honest, I didn’t start out here! I was sick and tired of being written off by doctors and told to ignore my Son’s symptoms. We were on an endless roller coaster of medications and doctors, yet we NEVER had any answers to my sons’ tics. No one could help, and no one would help. I was angry, fed up, and ready to punch the world in the face. Who the hell wants to stand on the sidelines and watch their child suffer? Not me, and I was DONE! So I went back to school to relearn everything I thought I knew about health and wellness.

Let me break it down for you…

I never imagined I would find a passion for nutrition and genetics. I went to college, got a job, and one day decided to start a family…

Fast forward many years later when my first-born son was six and was diagnosed with a neurological transient tic. As parents, we were overwhelmed and scared. We spent thousands of dollars on tests, doctor visits, medicines, and supplements. We visited doctor after doctor who told us to just ignore “it” he would grow out of it. He was put on prescription after prescription and nothing worked. We were offered more medications with scary side effects when the first prescriptions didn’t work. At one point we were told by a doctor that our son just needed a good spanking!

The situation at school was so bad that I pulled my kids out to homeschool them. We spent 6 years visiting doctors and specialists and nothing ever changed. It was VERY frustrating and scary that we could not find answers anywhere!

I have broken down in rooms full of other mothers begging for their prayers because I did not know what else to do. I have spent many nights crying into my pillow and screaming at GOD to give us some answers. I was beginning to feel like maybe this was just his lot in life and would struggle with it forever.

As a mom, I spent hours, months, and years of research to try and figure out where we were headed. I had officially become a mega researcher and I started to educate myself on everything from diet to genetics. We have found some amazing doctors and found some answers we never expected. However, somewhere along this crazy journey, my passion was born and one day I found the RIGHT way!

This journey has forever changed the course of our lives and although the struggle was intense we have seen the light at the end of the tunnel. What we have overcome by doing things the right way has been mind-blowing! Here is what we have overcome:

  • Neurological Tic
  • Sensory Processing Disorder
  • Leaky Gut
  • Cyclical Vomiting
  • Anxiety
  • Poor Detoxification
  • Candida Overgrowth
  • Mood Swings
  • Lack of Focus an Concentration
  • Bad Grades

I fully believe that individual health and wellness are the future and the future is now. I use a whole-body approach when working with you to help conquer inflammation, spectrum disorders, ADD/ADHD, Tics/Tourette’s, hormone imbalance, Auto-Immune, gastrointestinal problems, methylation deficiency, and genetic SNP’s (single nucleotide polymorphisms: AKA broken genes). My focus is real food nutrition, functional lab testing, and genetics so that you can fuel your brain, body, and being.

I know that so many people can’t seem to find the answers to their health problems, they are thrown a pill and told to carry on. It’s hard to carry on when you feel like crap and no one can tell you why. Symptoms can be far removed from what is actually causing the dysfunction in someone’s body. I dive deep with you and take a look at foundational systems like your hormones, immune, detoxification, and we do tons of investigative work on those systems together. I help you do that by running functional lab tests and genetics, we can use those results to compare and contrast them with who you are and how they are feeling. We use this information to find healing opportunities and we address those healing opportunities using natural protocols so that you can focus, function, and FLOURISH!
