My interest in nutrition started from home. Faced with chronic health issues that weren't being adequately addressed by traditional medical professionals led me to explore alternative routes for myself and my family. A few basic dietary changes brought about profound changes in just a few weeks. I was blown away. I wanted to shout it from the rooftops. I decided to formalize my interest by going back to school for another Masters and getting properly qualified. Fast-forward some years later and here we are.
I'm convinced that food (and nutrition therapy) can better any health situation, no matter how dire. It can fundamentally alter the progression of some, reverse others, and improve almost all.
I am a Certified Nutrition Specialist® (CNS). The CNS designation is the gold standard for advanced nutrition professionals. Certified Nutrition Specialists practice science-based personalized nutrition therapy to empower people to take control of their health. The CNS approach centers around personalized nutrition.
I have a Masters Degree in Nutrition and Integrative Health from the Maryland University of Integrative Health. MUIH is the leading academic institution in the United States for Integrative Health.
I employ a whole foods approach to nutrition therapy. Food is medicine. Using science-backed data and the wisdom of ancient healing modalities, you can expect that the majority of your treatment plan will be based on real, nourishing, nutrient-dense foods. Supplements can often help kick-start healing and are used judiciously and thoughtfully during your healing journey. Lifestyle elements such as sleep, sunlight, stress management and movement are critical components of any healing journey and will be assessed and recommended as such.
