Brooklyn Nutrition helps clients resolve digestive disorders, lose weight, improve autoimmune conditions, and achieve their individual health goals
As opposed to simply treating or masking symptoms, at Brooklyn Nutrition, we work together to determine the root cause of your symptoms. Next, we address the underlying issues through changes in lifestyle and diet and the addition of targeted supplements. I provide hands-on support each step of the way, through in-person or Skype consultations, phone calls, emails, articles, research and advice.
My approach is designed to:
- increase your energy
- overcome your digestive problems
- uncover hidden food sensitivities
- improve your overall well-being
Whether a food sensitivity, nutrient deficiency, hormonal imbalance or unhealthy habit is compromising your health, I can help you make sustainable changes to improve your physical condition. I can also support you when you are going through a life change such as pregnancy, motherhood, extreme stress or a newly diagnosed health condition.
Together, we will create realistic goals and make manageable changes that are practical and attainable.
Educated in the Weston A. Price dietary philosophy and trained as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I believe that humans thrive on a diet of unprocessed, nutrient-dense, traditional whole foods. Depending upon your individual constitution, health conditions, genetic background, lifestyle, and preferences, a whole foods diet can be adapted in numerous ways to support your body. Working together, we create a customized plan for you, including diet programs, meal plans, recipes, supplement regimens and lifestyle and exercise guidelines.
Traditional Foods Philosophy:
Designed for maximum nutrition, traditional foods encompass a broad range of foods that nourished diverse peoples before the industrialization of food began in the 19th century. Anthropologists and researchers such as Weston Price, have demonstrated that many conditions which plague us today, such as infertility, diabetes, obesity, autoimmune disease, depression, anxiety, heart disease and dental cavities were largely absent in cultures who subsisted on their traditional diets of un-refined foods.
Nutritional Therapy Practitioners:
Nutritional Therapy is based in functional medicine and a holistic understanding of the body. Using an interview process, a lengthy health questionnaire and a unique functional evaluation of the body’s needs, Nutritional Therapy Practitioners (NTPs) develop an understanding of the client’s specific weaknesses and needs. Through lingual-neural testing, targeted supplements are tested to address the client’s specific requirements and a comprehensive healing protocol is developed. NTPs also work with clients to support lifestyle changes such as removing unhealthy habits and creating new, desired habits such as adequate, restful sleep, exercise, and healthful cooking.
