"Working with you fixed a million things I was struggling with! I have no more headaches, better sleep, higher energy throughout the day etc. I would also like to note I started seeing the most changes physically after 6 months of work. This also happened to be when I got pregnant and that did NOT stop the progress. I feel better now while expecting a baby than I have in a long time!!


"I feel SO CONFIDENT to make healthy decisions." based on MY health journey and test results. This is extremely empowering."

"There has been so much improvement. I came not having a clue how to fix all these things. I had worked with a naturopath doctor, traditional doctor, a dietician, and holistic nutritionist. Hardly anything changed or improved. From the start I could tell a difference. Some wins: depression is gone, brain fog is gone, afternoon slump is gone, insulin resistance is gone, sleeping through the night, lost 20 lbs, PMS is gone!"


"The testing was different, the game plan was fully laid out and available to me. There wasn’t a ton of run around. What you told me to do worked, simple as that!"

"My goal was to get answers that showed something other than being told “your bloodwork is normal." I wanted to find the root cause of joint pain in my knees, fix my stomach pain / stomach issues, and clear my skin. My joint pain has dramatically decreased, my digestion is so much better, my acne has 100% cleared, I've learned how to nourish my body!"


"I couldn't eat dairy for as long as I can remember. I’ve still had no reactions! My acne is gone! I’m truly so blown away. I never thought this would happen!"

real talk...

We help you take radical ownership of your health. 

because we believe that feeling less than "optimal" is NOT normal. 

80% of women suffer from hormonal symptoms like unexplained weight gain, PMS, hair loss, brain fog, low energy and more. 

72% of women say they've experienced medical gaslighting-- healthcare providers downright dismissing, downplaying or not believing patients when they share their symptoms.

Women are tired of being ignored, dismissed or told their "bloodwork looks normal," even though they don't feel normal.

Symptoms are often chalked up to stress, hormones or depression and the mainstream solution is a prescription medication during a 20 minute office visit.

We empathize with the frustration of having hormonal or various health symptoms brushed off as "normal" or a part of aging. 

You deserve to have access to the most up-to-date and powerful information on your body, so that you feel confident to have the power to make empowered decisions for your health and more importantly, feel your best every single day.

Here's  why what you're doing now isn't working... 

you're focused on band-aid, quick fix solutions like dieting or restrictive programs leaving you more depleted & confused than before.

you're missing real data on your health status that can't be addressed by "clean eating." Example: mineral imbalances, gut infections, low hormones. 

you've been crowdsourcing google, podcasts, books, and instagram for health information and attempting to DIY your health journey. this only gets you so far, many hit a plateau and miss out on getting results faster.

you're stuck in survival mode & chronic stress which wreaks havoc on your nervous system, leads to gut issues & nutrient deficiencies. 

I believe that you deserve to be the expert of your body.

I know what it's like to feel desperate for solutions to fix your health symptoms yet only be told, "your labs look great."

I struggled with horrific acne, irregular periods, awful PMS, anxiety, bloating & gut issues only to be offered birth control or a prescription medication for my acne. 

I said "no thanks!" and started researching on my own. Lots and lots of trial and error-- you name it I've tried it (intermittent fasting, celery juicing, liver cleanses, veganism, dairy free).

I went back to school and discovered functional nutrition and functional lab testing in 2020, and THEN my health started to transform. I am healthier and more vibrant in my 30's than I was 10 years ago.

I found solutions, answers and hope and put my process and methodology into a program that uses a food first approach paired with the insights of functional lab testing.

We've since helped hundreds of women heal their hormones, improve their thyroid, fix their digestion, clear their skin, brain fog and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

How quickly will I start to see results?

This is a great question and is dependent on how depleted and imbalanced your body is when you start. Some experience major improvements in metabolic markers quickly, while for others the process takes longer. Remember that you didn't get to where you are overnight, we can't expect our body to recover from things like chronic stress, under-eating, gut infections, hormone imbalances-- overnight. Remember that we do not heal you. You are ultimately responsible for your healing progress. We guide you, counsel you, provide you with expert advice, protocols, wisdom but it is your responsibility to listen and put in the work.

If I've already had testing done, can you use it?

If you have had a GI Map (Diagnostic Solutions only), an HTMA (Analytical Research or Trace Elements only), bloodwork, or a Dutch test done in the last 60 days (and have not yet started a protocol), we can use them.

Can I do this program while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes, however we cannot do deeper level gut work when a client is pregnant (or breastfeeding). For example, we do not address major gut infections like H. Pylori, bacteria, parasites as the protocol involved is contraindicated when pregnant or breastfeeding. We work with many pregnant and postpartum clients and come alongside them in optimizing their nutrient needs, blood sugar, and prepping for postpartum!

Can I order additional labs? Will you look at my bloodwork?

Do you take insurance?

We do not take insurance however some clients have success paying our services and lab testing with their HSA / FSA cards. Your ability to have these services covered is something you will have to look into with your HSA / FSA provider. 

What happens when the program ends?

We have an alumni program! For a reduced monthly cost, you can continue to work with us, access additional lab testing if necessary, monthly zoom check ins and continued messaging access.

Do you recommend this program if I am a vegan?

Yes,  however the Fueled + Free Nutrition team of practitioners recommend incorporating high quality animal products for the majority of people. We will educate you on your options from an unbiased perspective, but the decision in how you eat is yours and yours alone.

Will I have to order supplements?

Yes, practitioner grade supplements are a part of your monthly protocols. Certain supplements are recommended to support drainage and detoxification, especially in preparation for a gut protocol. Depending on the results of your gut test, you can expect to be on gut related supplements for 30-60 days or 90+ days (ex. candida overgrowth is a longer protocol). Expect to spend $100-150 a month on average on your supplements. While we do take a food first approach, supplements are necessary to address gut issues, fine tune hormones, and replenish depleted nutrients.

Or you can email us: hello@margaretpowell.com

Yes, you do have access to additional labs. You and your practitioner will discuss what labs in addition to the HTMA + GI MAP may be necessary. We highly recommend a full thyroid panel, a CBC blood panel and are trained in advanced lab testing including Dutch Hormone Testing, Mold, and more. 

No longer feel victim to your health symptoms, or feel like you're missing out on life.

Have confidence and clarity in how to support & care for your body. 

Enjoy more energy and mental focus so you can show up for the things most important to you. 

Step into a better relationship with food and your body and focus on nourishing versus restricting foods.
