Many people start delving into nutrition when they come across a health related problem and are trying to heal themselves. For many people in the US, the context most people can relate to is weight loss, high cholesterol, or diabetes.
I became a nutrition professional because my children had severe food allergies and I had to learn what to feed them to keep them alive and safe. Little did I know, that someday I would need to rely on my knowledge of nutrition to save my own life. Medications can be lifesaving in an acute situation, but they do little for chronic diseases that last decades. This is where nutrition becomes more important than anything else you do.
Regina is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who uses a functional medicine approach to address your health concerns. Functional medicine is a system of looking at each person individually through a truly personalized approach to health, discovering the root causes of a person’s ailments, instead of focusing on their symptoms. When the root causes are eliminated, the symptoms are eliminated as well.
Regina enjoys working with people with health issues related to digestive problems (Celiac Disease, Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis, IBS, SIBO, food allergies/sensitivities), chronic illnesses (diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia), and cancer prevention and treatment.
Regina believes food IS medicine. She will work with you to naturally help you heal using diet, supplements, and lifestyle changes.
Together we will focus on exploring health and wellness from many different approaches with your mind, body, spirit, and lifestyle as a guide. It is a team approach that addresses the root cause of health challenges in a client-practitioner therapeutic partnership.
