Welcome to Optimal Health Solutions!

We are happy to have you here and look forward to helping you achieve optimal health so you can look, feel, and perform at your best!



Hi! My name is Amy, and I am a Female Hormone and Nutrition Specialist. I am also an RN, wife, and mom of 3 kids. 

Health is a top priority in my life and always has been, but three years ago, my health worsened.

I was chronically exhausted, sick all the time, and always in pain, and things that used to excite me no longer did. I continued to gain weight despite exercising six days a week, eating clean, and counting calories. I didn’t have the drive, motivation, or energy I once had. I wasn’t thriving, and I was barely surviving.
As hard as it was, I quit my nursing career to focus on my health and my family.
Although I was diagnosed with many autoimmune conditions and hypothyroidism, I knew something else was happening.
After ten years of going through conventional medicine with no answers, I went the holistic route. I realized through DUTCH Hormone, GI-MAP, and Mycotoxin testing that I had severe hormonal imbalances, gut dysfunction, and significant mold toxicity. There was no “medicine” to fix these issues, but my symptoms have drastically improved through nutrition, lifestyle modifications, and supplementation.
I am happy to say I am finally thriving! I feel alive again, happy and energized! I am also the most fit I have ever been and feel confident in my body.
I had so much success with my health that I became certified as a holistic hormone specialist so I could help those struggling like I was.
My purpose and mission are to find the root cause of your symptoms and provide a solution to achieve optimal health so you can look, feel, and perform at your best.

Getting Started on your Optimal Health Journey

Testing is always a good idea, no matter where you are on your health journey.  Testing shows where you are at, and how far you have come.  Testing provides a path forward, focusing your efforts on what needs attention and reducing the timeframe to achieve optimal results.

Which test should I start with?

  • Estrogen dominance
  •  Acne
  •  Sleep troubles
  •  Mood swings
  •  Weight loss resistance
  •  Spotting
  •  Menstrual pain and cramping
  • Chronic fatigue

GI-MAP Tests are recommended if you struggle with any of the following:

  • Diarrhea
  •  Constipation
  •  Bloating
  •  Gas
  •  Acid reflux
  •  Belching
  •  Chronic Fatigue
  •  Food sensitivities

Thank you, Amy!

Your expertise has been invaluable! When I described to you the symptoms I had been experiencing, such as fatigue, weight gain, and digestion problems, you came to my rescue. You recommended that I complete the DUTCH test, which I did; the DUTCH test proved to have easy-to-follow steps and was simple to complete! When my DUTCH results were ready, you explained to me what the results meant. You then recommended appropriate supplements, a comprehensive diet plan, and an effective exercise routine. I followed your recommendations, and two weeks later had more energy, weight loss, as well as better digestion! I feel confident my continuing consults with you will keep helping me to have good health! I appreciate your professionalism and great approach for improving my life!

Sincerely, and with love,



I had been trying to be mindful of my nutrition and exercise for months now and my weight just continued to go up no matter what I did

2 weeks on Amy Kandetzke 's post-DUTCH nutrition plan and I'm down 5 pounds!

Thank you, Amy!


I started the meal plan this week and I did it exactly like you said on paper. Amy, I have got to tell you the good news. I have been so relaxed, I have loved my meals. And here it is I lost 4 lb this week even lost some fat and gained water !!!! I'm so excited, so happy!

Thank you, Amy!

Working with Amy has been a gamechanger! She has a realistic, practical approach to working with you towards your health goals. Her customized nutrition & workout plan helped me drop 8in in the first 4 weeks of being on her program! There are no magic, expensive gimmicks - just food likely already in your pantry! Simple changes in nutrition have led to more energy & focus to tackle the day-to-day. Highly recommend!
