Amy Stenehjem, M.D. works as a Health Consultant, helping those with complex and/or chronic illness, from all over the United States, find the answers needed to achieve renewed health and happiness

After graduating from medical school in 2000, Dr. Stenehjem specialized in the care of those with Fibromyalgia, chronic neck/back problems, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), and autoimmune-related joint disease.

However, in 2011 she became very sick and spent the next 7 years homebound due to illness.

After she found the answers needed to transform her health, she decided to do something different to help those who were feeling abandoned or lost in their current healthcare systems.

She created her consulting firm, Mastering Health & Happiness (MHH), where she uses her unique insight to help her clients navigate their symptoms, diagnoses, and healthcare systems to find the answers needed to transform their health.

Her work has been featured on the Huffington Post and The Mighty.
