What’s Integrative and Functional Nutrition?

As an integrative and functional Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, my practice focuses on a holistic approach to health and healing, using whole foods and and tailored nutrition supplements to help a person optimize their health. My assessments focus on finding the root causes of a person’s health problems. To do this I look at as many pieces of information or clues as possible….and then connect the dots. I look...

Test Your Genes to Find Your Best Diet, says WSJ

Now even the Wall Street Journal is “talking” about Nutrigenomics — using the information in your genetic profile to determine your unique nutrition needs! It’s all about genes and nutrition. In my practice I look at research-based SNPs (genetic variations) of a set of genes in the methylation pathway that can be supported with specific foods and nutrition supplements. In this way I use Nutrigenomics...

Vitamin B12 — Which Form is Best for You?

Adenosylcobalamin, Hydroxycobalamin, Methylcobalamin, Cyanocobalamin! Ever had your vitamin B12 level checked and been instructed by your doctor to take a vitamin B12 supplement? If you’re like most people (and physicians), you probably think that all vitamin B12 is the same. This is not true! There are many forms…if you need to increase your B12 intake, do you know which form is best for you? Synthetic or...

I am very excited to be offering the PureGenomics™ nutrigenomics program! It’s a unique individualized nutritional solution developed by Pure Encapsulations, in collaboration with Nathan Morris, M.D. and Kelly Heim, Ph.D. PureGenomics addresses the most important research-based SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) in the methylation pathway with targeted nutrition supplements to support them. The PureGenomics...

Optimizing Cancer Survivorship with Nutrition

Both western medicine and integrative medicine have come so far in fighting cancer, keeping it in remission and even eradicating it. Most cancer survivors also known as “thrivers” have years and very full lives ahead of them after conventional treatments like surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. Research clearly shows that thrivers have unique nutritional needs; meeting them is important to helping them regain...

It was very exciting to illustrate how to use the genetic profile to provide...
