Meet our Health Consultants
Sandrina is a board-certified Nurse Practitioner and co-founder of Étoile Wellness, with a passion for Functional Medicine. A true believer in searching for the root cause of someone's illness or symptom in order to achieve true healing from within. She obtained her BSN in Portugal and further pursued her studies to include Masters in Science from UMass. Working in Conventional Medicine, she quickly realized that health care was more geared towards "a pill for every ill", meaning that the goal was to identify the disease and then tame the symptoms by prescribing medication. The opportunity to empower the patient to take hold of their own health, to pursue true healing and vitality were lost. Patients were succumbed to their illness. When her loved one developed medical concerns for which the traditional medical model was unable to provide long term relief, she researched for answers and found Functional Medicine. The opportunity to give patients control of their health and vitality was found! She applied the principles learned through the Institute of Functional Medicine and School of Applied Functional Medicine, and healed her loved one who has remained symptom free since. She became passionate about educating others on how they too can heal from the inside out and achieve optimal health. Special interests include natural healing, non toxic living, and restoring health by reversing disease.
