Meet Heather Pohlman - Functional Medicine Specialist in Lake Zurich

Heather Pohlman

Heather Pohlman, CPT CNS RYT FMCHC-C, is the practice manager and chiropractic assistant for NuWave Wellness Center. She came to Dr. Vyas as a patient many years ago after she hurt her back, and again as a functional medicine patient when she was diagnosed with severe fibromyalgia. Through her time with Dr. Vyas she found a passion for health and wellness, and a strong desire to help others.

Today, she is a certified personal trainer and nutrition specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance. She is a certified health coach with specialties in behavior change and nutrition, and is currently studying to be board certified as a functional medicine coach through FMCA in conjunction with the Institute of Functional Medicine. As part of the offerings at NuWave Wellness Center, she offers a guiding hand to lifestyle changes through coaching.

Heather is the Visiting Chairperson for a local chapter of Mended Hearts, and is trained to teach the Matter of Balance program at the local hospital. She is working on a program that encompasses coaching and lifestyle changes for seniors, and another for veterans, two populations she has a strong bond to through her family.
