As a Naturopathic Doctor, her specialty is GAPS, which is the main focus of her clinic in N. Georgia, just south of the Tennessee border in the Untied Staes. She came to GAPS when her son was 4.5 years old and it was discovered that he had autism, ADHD, hypoglycemia, bipolar, and dyslexia. He recovered from the lion’s share of his issues within the firs year, and has been neurotypical since. As a result of their family switching to GAPS, Plotner recovered from 8 autoimmune diseases herself, including fibromyalgia, Hashimoto’s, IBS, POTS, eczema, H. pylori, hypothyroidism, tinnitus, Stage 4 Spinal Degeneration, heavy metal poisoning, Stage 4 Adrenal Fatigue, and has walked away from over 50 allergies. Most interestingly is her history with cancer, which first started as a skin cancer spot in her young twenties that was successfully removed naturally. She was then diagnosed with uterine cancer in her young 30s, but was thankful they were already blessed with two young boys. She then walked through stage four breast cancer in her late 40s and young 50s, which she chose to treat naturally after leaning the alternatives were so much more powerful. This cancer had migrated from the breast to the armpit, thyroid, back left shoulder, spine, and belly. To say the least, she’s thankful that the illnesses her family has encountered have taught her so much, but doesn’t care to learn from any more or them.
Becky Plotner grew up on antibiotics, way more than was slightly necessary. He gut microbiome was depleted and caused illness after illness, which took a lot of rebuilding. She doesn’t consider herself an expert in anything, but is thankful she’s learned so much through her journey, and is constantly on the hunt for more information knowing how well the body heals naturally. She sees tremendous power in natural medicine and relies solely on powerful healing foods, herbs that are mostly grown on her tiny farm, wild harvesting, fermenting probiotic strains, homeopathy, detoxification, and prayer.
She lives with her two young adult boys, two pigs, three turkeys, countless chickens, ducks, geese, meat rabbits, organically grown heirloom garden, and organically grown orchard, office dog Addison, and hard-working husband. It bothers her when she encounters something growing where she doesn’t know the medicinal value. She finds peace and rejuvenation tent camping, kayaking, and biking with her husband. Few things fill her cup better than the sound of their Tom turkey drumming and standing in the awe of nature. Sounds like the wind blowing through pine trees, waterfalls, ocean waves crashing, birds singing, and quiet give her deep comfort and satisfaction.
She sees people in her office and via telehealth appointments, while maintaining her writing on Nourishing Plot and creating more books, of which she is currently working on two.
