All About Jaimie M. Warren, Ph.D., RN; and Ushas

Dr. Jaimie M. Warren and Ushas
Ushas (Pronounced "Oo-shus") means "to dawn, to awake, or to know."   It was the name of a beloved dog of mine who  passed on in 1998.  She featured prominently in my decision to create Ushas.
Jaimie Warren & Ushas

My interest in chronic health problems grew out of my personal experience.  I have been plagued by autoimmune problems since I was a child.  My problems are mostly skin problems.  I have had contact dermatitis to all material except cotton and leather since I was born.  Lots of steroid creams and itchy skin.  I've been lucky that my conditions have not been life-threatening, but being drawn to others with autoimmune disorders I've seen friends die or become functionally crippled by their diseases.

As I progressed along my educational path I started using my new skills in analysis and experimentation to troubleshoot my own skin problems, which, by the time I started graduate school, had become extreme. Through a series of discoveries, I finally found the specific nutritional, exercise, lifestyle changes, and natural hormonal adjustments that were the key to clearing up my health problems.  Encouraged by this success, I began to help friends troubleshoot their problems, and when this went well, I moved on to clients.

It never ceases to amaze me how the right kind of analysis and resulting simple, corrective steps can truly change the lives of so many.  I've worked with friends and clients with such problems as lupus, Crohn's disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and mysterious symptoms for which medical doctors were unable to provide diagnoses.  What I've found is that autoimmunity is really a blanket term and each case is unique.  For this reason, every individual's path to better health will be unique as well.  I developed a method of analyzing patterns in an individual's health history to find the starting point for the process of reversing the downward spiral of autoimmunity.

It should be noted here that I am a research scientist and not a medical doctor.  Throughout our work together I depend on the medical evaluation of your personal physician and the specialized information health care professionals can provide through medical testing.  I do not diagnose or prescribe, but coach, and all Ushas, Inc. services are designed to complement and build upon, not replace, your other medical and wellness care treatments.  In fact, the more detailed information you obtain from your doctor about your condition, the more resources we have to create an effective strategy and develop a program that will work for you.

As a molecular biologist, I have conducted research and published in refereed journals in the fields of immunology, exercise science, nutrition, physiology, and genetics.  In addition, as an experienced personal exercise trainer and instructor, I have worked with hundreds of students and clients in a practical, down-to-earth way.  I've learned to use the same down-to-earth approach to tie the science into my health coaching, making even the most complex scientific ideas accessible to the nonscientist.
