Functional Nutrition

Functional Nutrition Img 1Cutting through the confusion…

You know that food affects mental health… and vice versa.

When you’re depressed, anxious, and tired, ordering takeout is much easier than preparing a nourishing meal at home.

Fluctuations in blood sugar, inflammation in the gut, or food sensitivities may cause low energy, anxiety, depression, and sleep issues.

And if you’re dealing with IBS, SIBO, acid reflux, or indigestion, you know these have a real impact on mood.

But Dr. Google offers up conflicting advice.

Should you try paleo, vegan, keto, or something else?

What about supplements or digestive enzymes?

It’s hard to know exactly what will work in a sustainable way.

That’s where working with a clinical nutritionist comes in.

“Now I finally know what to eat to keep my anxiety in check,
and I’m not just grabbing a breakfast bar from the pantry on my way out the door in the morning.”

– Valerie
