Welcome Jessica Santos

 

Jessica Santos, FNP, is joining Calmglow on June 1, 2020. Jessica received both her Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science in Nursing from the University of Arizona. Jessica spent her first decade as a Family Nurse Practitioner working in Urgent Care, Family and Internal Medicine, as well as Pediatrics. While she appreciated that she was able to help her patients with acute issues such as healing their broken bones, she was frustrated at not being able to help her patients overcome chronic health concerns.  In 2015, Jessica discovered Functional and Integrative Medicine and learned that she really could make a difference in people’s lives; just as she had imagined being able to do while working in the medicine field. Since 2015, she has become increasingly interested in getting at the root of disease, and most specifically complex chronic disease.  Jessica was certified by the Institute of Functional Medicine in 2019. She is also a member of the International Society for Environmentally-Acquired Illness. 

 

Jessica focuses on helping the whole person, not just relieving symptoms.  She works with patients of all ages to optimize their health and restore their wellness and balance.  In her own life experiences, she realized how important sleep, rest, fun, nutrition, exercise, clean air/water/environment, stress management, and relationships are to creating a vibrant life. In order to achieve optimal wellness, none of these parts can be overlooked. Jessica is passionate about lifestyle medicine, most notably nutrition and fitness. Jessica has been very active in the CrossFit community since 2007, and is currently beginning her coaching internship so she can coach CrossFit. Her 10 year old and 13 year old sons are active in multiple sports throughout the year and also like to do CrossFit with her. Jessica enjoys being outside and active, and can be found trail running, hiking, mountain biking, paddleboarding or kayaking with her kids. 

 

We are excited to have Jessica join our Calmglow family. Everyone who works with Jessica will find that she will bring out their best and help all live a rich and full life. Her number one goal is to assist all in living their fullest expression of health!

 

 

What our
patients
are saying

Always get clarity and understanding…

Dianne has always help me understand the complicated issues of hypothyroidism, understanding the symptoms and long term effects. She has helped with my dietary needs and overall well being. Highly recommend if you are still feeling the symptoms even if your on traditional medications.

The best part of talking with new patients…

I have worked with Dianne Hinton at Calmglow for 4 years. I receive calls from new patients every day. I think the best part of talking with new patients is that I give them the knowledge and hope in knowing that I–like all of Dianne’s staff–was her patient before her employee. I think that says a lot about Dianne as a practitioner. She is very compassionate and caring towards each individual patient.

Diane Hinton saved my life!

After over a year of traditional doctors misdiagnosing and mistreating my illness, Diane immediately got it right. She identified the root cause of my illness, and I went from being chronically ill to healed and healthy in less than a year. Diane listens to and cares for her patients like no one I’ve ever known. I highly recommend her for diagnosing the true health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms.

My husband and I just love Calmglow …

Just what is Functional Medicine?  Simply put…. I call it getting to the “cause” of a health issue. Rashes, High Pressure, Arthritis, Obesity, Insomnia, and Fatigue are a few of the issues she’s helped us with.  But what I really like best is; she doesn’t say “here, take this pill” and it’ll “treat the symptoms”.  She treats the “cause” of those symptoms so they truly go away without requiring “pills”.  Our bodies are healing, and the we feel we’re the healthiest we’ve been in a long time! What we’ve discovered about the manner in which our bodies “had been” functioning previously, from the in depth tests she recommends, was pretty astounding. We’ve learned so much since starting to see her as our practitioner, I would never choose to go back to an Allopathic doctor!
