Hi there,
I'm Melissa

It’s time to rediscover your healthiest, most vibrant self!


My mission is to help you optimize and transform your health by healing from the inside out using physical activity, whole foods, restorative lifestyle strategies, and functional medicine solutions.

I will help you move past the fear, doubt, and overwhelm of ever getting better and unlock your body’s innate ability to heal and repair giving you better health and more time to be the powerful, creative being you are. 

As a Graves' disease and Hashimoto's warrior, I know firsthand what it feels like to be overwhelmed by symptoms of irritability, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, digestive and hormonal issues, weight loss and weight gain, brain fog, poor mental clarity, difficulty concentrating, and feeling fatigued. I also know firsthand that there is a whole-body, biology-based approach to wellness that allows you to heal, recover, and even reverse chronic illness and dis-ease within the body. 

When you work with me, we will customize a fitness plan that works towards your goals and navigate ways you can achieve lifelong wellness by building sustainable lifestyle strategies that work for you. We will individualize a step-by-step lifestyle approach that targets the fundamental keys to health.

My goal is to work from a place of trust, education, inspiration, and empowerment so that you can take control of your health step-by-step and learn how to sustainably make choices that build your wellness so you can achieve optimal health.

In health and wholeness,

Dr. Melissa de Brito, PharmD, AFMC, CPT
