Interview with Dr. Johanna Gaskins, DNP, APRN, AGNP-C, CCAP

“We can really reposition to support our patients in a major way.”

–Dr. Johanna Gaskins, DNP, APRN, AGNP-C, CCAP


About seven years ago, Dr. Johanna Gaskins faced a health crisis that changed her life and introduced her to functional medicine.

This healthy, active nurse practitioner ended up with blood clots in her lungs, and no one could tell her why.

After seeing some of the top specialists, the recommendation was medication and regular testing for life. She and her family lived in fear and frustration, feeling helpless about why it had happened and wondering when it would happen again.

This was when Johanna began looking for answers and found functional medicine.

Garric recently chatted with Johanna about her experience going from health crisis to functional medicine practitioner. In this interview, she discusses:

  • The steps she took to find answers and how a friend’s guidance helped open her eyes to a possible root cause.
  • The mindset shift she experienced transitioning from conventional medical training and over 25 years of nursing experience to a functional medicine practitioner plus how the FMFT program’s mindset component was crucial in this transition.
  • The opportunity that health practitioners have in functional medicine to help themselves and their patients live their optimal lives.
  • The biggest outcome she has seen since graduating from the FMFT program and what she recommends to others still on the fence about taking action.

If Johanna’s story resonates with you, I highly recommend watching this interview.
