We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Stephanie Zgraggen, DC, CCN and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Stephanie, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
I am inspired by my patients every single day. It brings me absolute joy to assist my patients in naturally transforming their health. Each person I see is a unique case and my job is to determine the underlying causes of their health challenges. This is what motivates me to learn more, do more and be the best doctor I can for them!
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am a chiropractor and clinical nutritionist and the clinical director of Lime and Lotus Healing Arts Center in Charleston, South Carolina. I am also an author and leading expert in women’s hormones and health. My private practice is centered on functional endocrinology, lifestyle modification and whole food supplementation. My expertise includes functionally evaluating thyroid, adrenals, male and female hormone imbalances, and digestion.
My mission is to empower women on how they can transform their lives and incorporate nutrition, supplements, and positive lifestyle choices. I have written for national publications such as Chiropractic Economics, Natural Awakenings and Nutrition Perspectives and have shared the stage at events with Elizabeth Gilbert and Marianne Williamson.
As a functional medicine practitioner and female hormone expert, I’m on a mission is to help women reclaim their hormonal health and feminine vitality naturally. I want you to feel sexy, vital, and balanced, which means getting your weight right where you want it, getting your energy and sex drive maximized, and doing it all naturally and safely.
I personally knows what’s it’s like to not feel your best, to have your hormones rule your world, to not have the energy to be the best mom, spouse or co-worker. I’ve been there and done that and now here to teach you how to change it naturally and permanently. Today, I feel 100 times better in my 40s than in my 20’s and it’s my mission to share that with you!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love the beach so that would be a definite spot. Then we would find any local live music or theatre performances to attend after we enjoy an amazing dinner at a local sourced restaurant. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
For my shoutout, I’d love to recognize my father for instilling in me my work ethic, can do attitude and perseverance. He told me at a young age I could be anything I wanted to be – and I believed him. I am the first person in my family to hold a doctorate along with running a successful health care practice and I am forever grateful for the way he raised me. Love you Dad!
