Meet Amy, founder of Blazing Brains
Hi! I’m Amy Tyler, naturopathic doctor and founder of Blazing Brains. I help parents who are struggling with their child’s mood, focus, & energy use nutrition & lifestyle tools to optimize brain health, leading to more ease in family life and a focused, regulated child who is free to reach their full potential. Rather than focusing only on typical or average eaters, Blazing Brains was designed to include neurodiverse kids who often struggle with picky eating and other challenges around food.
My education includes a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and a doctorate degree in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle. My learning curve accelerated quickly when I became a mom and experienced firsthand the challenges that come with feeding and raising children.
I’ve been providing natural health solutions to families in Austin, TX since 2007, and I have a special passion for helping kids who are wired differently. The name “Blazing Brains” was coined to capture the dual nature of these kids who beautifully break the mold. Their lightning-fast brilliance can illuminate new ways of thinking and seeing the world; they show you fresh perspectives & amaze you with their insights. On the other hand, sometimes it seems that their brains are on fire, manifesting as meltdowns, anxiety, and dysregulation.
My own family includes individuals with autism, ADHD, sensory issues and learning disabilities. Finding ways to help them was a very steep learning curve, but one that has allowed me to help other families facing similar challenges.
My mission is to bring tangible solutions and a supportive community to any family struggling to help their kids. My vision is to help your kids shine their lights brightly into the world, and provide tools to quench any ‘brain fires’ that are standing in their way.
My approach is to keep things simple and realistic for busy families. The goal is progress over perfection! As a mom of two young kids, I’m also still learning as I go and walking alongside you in this journey.
Welcome to Blazing Brains – I’m so happy that you’re here!
