Tools that Work and Investment that Pays off

I have helped over a thousand patients like you recover and thrive or at least improve their quality of life. My services are completely personalized, tailored to each patient’s needs because I honor bio-individuality – no patient is like any other. Your needs are completely unique. In order for that to happen, I combine many modalities: functional nutrition, clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy, nutritional biochemistry, gastroenterology, Nutrigenomics, Food as Medicine, nutrition traditions from various cultures, as well as my commitment to dig deeper with attention to every detail (I actually assign a number of hours to study your case and do critical research related to it). Many times I have to recommend proper functional testing, do investigative work, and I create food protocols supported with supplement protocols just for your needs as we monitor and adjust.

Why am I able to Get such Good Results?

Here are the reasons: knowledge and experience with intelligent and sensitive support, passion to help each patient, constant education, cutting-edge science and taking clinical and financial risks to further my knowledge (I was in the very first cohort for a doctoral program in functional clinical nutrition), time assigned outside the consults to study each case, philosophy and practice of whole foods (there is no food system that can beat that), time-tested nutritional approaches from different cultures, and a great variety of clinical tools like functional testing – they all support your recovery and help me offer you the most effective customized service I can.

Complex Cases Deserve Answers

Functional Medicine approach to nutrition is needed in our increasingly complex medical reality because we need to address the root causes of chronic medical challenges, as complicated as they can be. It just takes time, experience and the right tools. Most of the time, we will find out the reasons behind your complicated medical issues. We investigate all the conditions and see how they connect. There may be toxic exposure, pathogenic infection (or its residue), or hormonal chaos… By the time a person comes to work with me, they do not typically have just one medical problem but a laundry list. It does get complicated. You deserve a clinician that will commit to the depth of work needed to find the answers and get you better, and I have that commitment. Some patients seek my services as they have tried various things but failed to improve their health. Others take my signature 30-Day Detox Program because they are “sick and tired of being sick and tired”, struggle with an auto-immune condition, and/or are confused about how to get started with their health goals and what to actually do in the kitchen. I can never make promises but most of the time your life will get better or will change completely.

We Have to Address Toxicity Burden

Mitochondrial damage, oxidative stress, EMF pollution, free radicals, pesticides, glyphosate…some of these may sound foreign or irrelevant to you, but we are indeed drenched in toxicity, and all these interferences can affect your body right down to the cellular level, literally damaging your cells or making them dysfunctional. At the end of the day, what is cancer – normal cells going going out of control. What is an autoimmune disorder – you may have heard that your immune cells get confused (wrong messages) and attack self (the body). But I feel autoimmune reaction is due to your body attacking something to protect you. Immune system is wired to protect you. It s just too intelligent. Is there a virus living in your thyroid cells? Is that why the your thyroid is being attacked? When you add stress, tap water drank from plastic bottles, genetically engineered foods, coffee from Starbucks in the cup with a plastic lid, and daily microwaving, things may start breaking down, manifesting in a variety of medical diagnoses.

Now you can see why, I am so committed to educating you about the need to gently detoxify the body and ward off chronic disease as well as investigating more complex cases to find out if toxicity is implicated. For a safe clean up,  I provide a highly successful online 30-Day Detoxification Program that is gentle, without food restrictions, fasting, juicing, or dieting. Its strength lies in science,  shopping and cooking education of whole-foods, as well as individual and group support. When working together, regardless of what our clinical goals are and your diagnosis is, we will try to minimize environmental toxicity. Without that extra step, you may not improve – that is just the truth of our daily reality. I will teach you all that. The solutions are much more simple than the causes. You just have to be willing to make adjustments and needed changes! Some call it a lifestyle changes. I call it a new intelligence we need for this century.

Gut is Everything

Gut is a barrier we have protecting us from pathogens and it is the only route we can be nourished. Your gut hosts much of your immune system (GALT). Your gut is the first to get a beating. If you have toxicity, you better have a strong and well functioning liver and gastrointestinal tract and all the nutrients needed to push toxins out appropriately in your detox phases. You may think that the mystery joint pain in your pinky has no bearing on your gut, but we may soon find out together that when we fix the gut problems, the pain goes away. No matter what your condition is, I have to address the gut status first. In fact, that is where majority of my work lies! And that is likely the reason why I get such great results. That is your shortest way to recovery. And by the way, even pathogens like parasites, bacteria and viruses create toxins in your gut – we call them endotoxins. The gut truly rocks. It is your foundation of health, and we will spend much of our time working on it.

We will Address Food Allergies and Special Dietary Preferences

I specialize in medical nutrition therapy for food allergies and sensitivities combined with practical cooking re-education. I teach our patients how to prepare simple and healing mostly plant-based whole foods (free of particular allergens). I start with where you are in your current dietary preferences/limitations and we work off that.
