Integrative Approach to Wellness

WHAT IS A FUNCTIONAL NUTRITIONIST?

“The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food.” - Hippocrates

Integrative Clinical nutrition is based on a scientific, evidence-based approach that considers the uniqueness of each person's biochemical individuality, in conjunction with genetic, environmental , lifestyle, mental, emotional, spiritual and relationship factors that impact the state of health.  Utilizing expertise in physiology, biochemistry, and advanced laboratory assessment, we work to personalize a path to wellness through the use of food, exercise, mind-body techniques, supplements, herbs, sleep, and stress management.  Integrative and Functional nutrition empowers people to create a partnership with their practitioner in which each person's individual needs are explored to allow healing to occur at the root of dysfunction.

Some ways in which I help:

               * Dietary analysis and macronutrient balance

               * Uncovering food sensitivities

               * Laboratory analysis and some functional testing (Micronutrients, Organic Acids, Adrenal,    

                 Food sensitivities)

               * Mindfulness techniques

               * Supplement and herbal recommendations

               * Lifestyle recommendations such as sleep, stress management, and exercise.

               * Specialty diets (Anti-inflammatory, low FODMAP, gluten-free, Paleo, SCD, vegan, etc.)

               * Pantry makeovers.

               * Recipe sharing and meal planning ideas.

               * Community education on nutrition topics.
