About Maddie LeBrun

“My name is Maddie LeBrun and I’ve had the pleasure of being a graduate of both NTI’s MNT and NFC programs. My own personal health journey and journey to find NTI started when I was in college. Always having been interested in medicine and the human body, I was a young nursing student with a busy schedule. As my health started declining and I started becoming sensitive and allergic to dozens of foods, I knew I had to find a solution. Being familiar with pathophysiology, research and how the human body works, I started reading anything I could get my hands about holistic health and eventually found a provider who filled in the missing details about the origin of my health struggles. I knew I wanted to learn everything I could about holistic health, but needed the science and the research to back up the claims I was learning about. This led me to NTI and eventually NFC.

Having worked in hospitals for 7 years in a variety of settings, I have seen the impact of chronic disease on my patients. I’ve been determined to try and make an impact on my patients’ lives in small ways, whether it was discussing nutrition or lifestyle changes outside of the hospital, but the truth is I have seen our hospital systems from the inside out and know there is so much room to grow.

As I navigate the next steps in my career away from the nursing bedside, I hope to use my background, experience and passion to blend the two worlds of conventional and holistic medicine to positively impact future patients or clients!”
