Registered Dietitian Nutritionist / Certified LEAP Therapist / Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner
Hello, my friend. I am a Functional Medicine Registered Dietitian Nutritionist in Berkeley, CA. Originally, I entered into the nutrition field to resolve my own weight issues and soon learned that metabolism has more to do with imbalanced body systems not functioning optimally, which can not be oversimplified to merely “calories in = calories out”. In fact, everything is connected to everything and there is much more going on at the cellular level. More than 70% of the immune system resides in the gut and our gastrointestinal tract is greatly connected to both our HPA axis (stress hormone response) and our ability to clear toxins in the liver. My view is that that most symptoms can be resolved from the inside out by using functional medicine to re-balance the three-body systems (neuroendocrine, gastrointestinal, and liver detoxification).
I help men and women suffering from unidentifiable conditions like generalized brain fog, fatigue, stress, anxiety, sleep disturbances, food sensitivities, and digestive conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and inflammatory bowel disease.
My clients see a significant reduction in symptoms within the first 2 weeks of beginning a nutrition plan. This proven method to address the 3 body systems includes a comprehensive assessment, advanced diagnostic lab testing, and well-designed nutrition programs to resolve stressors, clear brain fog, combat fatigue, heal the gut, and eliminate toxins.
