In my practice, I address all nutritional concerns but specialize in the following:

Weight Loss Resistance Management

Yes, there really is such a thing — and, no, your metabolism is NOT broken… it’s just in need of a little TLC!

Weight loss resistance is a phenomenon that occurs due to metabolic, biochemical, or medical issues which results in a person’s inability to lose weight, regardless of their efforts.

The focus is on uncovering and addressing your specific area or areas of weight loss resistance and on healing your metabolism. This is one of the main keys to achieving permanent weight loss.

Areas of Weight Loss Resistance include

  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Carbohydrate Sensitivity
  • Food Intolerances
  • Detoxification Issues
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Menopausal Syndrome
  • Chronic Stress
  • Chronic Insomnia

Digestive Wellness

You are not only what you eat, but, more importantly, what you absorb and assimilate. If you are not digesting optimally, you are not absorbing and assimilating your nutrients optimally either! This will result in digestive discomfort, decreased energy, and multiple wellness issues. The focus is on healing the gut and restoring a healthy environment, thereby improving digestion, increasing absorption and assimilation of nutrients, as well as improving elimination.

Areas of Digestive Wellness include

  • Food Intolerances
  • Leaky Gut Syndrome
  • Constipation
  • Candida Overgrowth
  • Gut Dysbiosis
  • IBS
  • Colitis and Crohn’s Disease
  • Celiac’s Disease
  • Gluten Intolerance
  • Acid Reflux
  • Hypochlorhydria

Menopause Management

Hot Flashes, mood swings, and sleepless nights – good times! Perimenopause (or “the change before the change”) is the period of time leading up to menopause and occurs generally between the ages of 35 and 55. This transitional time is often wrought with unpleasant changes both physically and mentally that can wreak havoc on a woman’s life.

For guys, symptoms like ED (erectile dysfunction) are not caused by a Viagra deficiency — okay, that was just my attempt at lightening up a touchy subject, but just like muscle loss, fatigue, and urinary problems, it’s a sign of hormonal imbalance as well.

The good news is… nutrition can help! The focus is on lessening or eliminating symptoms, as well as reducing your risk of the chronic health conditions associated with menopause and andropause through nutrition and lifestyle changes.

Areas of Menopause/Andropause Management include

  • Weight Management
  • Symptom Management
  • Hormone Balancing
  • Osteoporosis Prevention
  • Blood Sugar Management
  • Heart Disease Prevention
  • Alzheimer’s Disease Prevention
  • Sexual Health Management (Libido Enhancement)
