Personalized Nutrition with a
Functional & Integrative Medicine Approach

Functional Nutrition and Wellness

“Disease is not a mystery; it is not something that just happens to you”

 

Your problem is not that you have chronic life-draining conditions alongside annoying symptoms such as bloating, constipation, diarrhea, brain fog, fatigue, headaches, fat and weight loss resistance, constant cravings, insomnia and inflammation.

Your problem is that you don't know why you have these symptoms.

That's where I come in.

Natalia’s Root Cause Assessment is a proprietary holistic assessment system designed to target the root causes of symptoms with 99% accuracy (for the past 15 years.)

 

With a Functional and Integrative Medicine approach, we don't focus on managing the symptoms, but rather in finding and addressing the ROOT CAUSE of health issues. 

​Functional Nutrition is about finding the optimal way for you to eat—using food to maximize your potential for health and reverse dysfunction or disease.

Client Testimonials

“Before working with Natalia my overall health was……okay.  Not good but not really terrible either.  Digestive health has been a life-long issue of mine so that was not great.  There were several blood work related flags: high BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.  It is safe to say that I was overweight.  I had started back at a gym but still had some ways to go to get into better shape. I knew I was stuck in the area of diet.  

 

With Natalia I learned how to eat better.  I now have a series of tools in my tool chest that I can use when shopping for food to help me find new things I want to eat.  On top of that, I have added a few quick & easy recipes for things I can make rather than snack on something less good for me.  Also learned how helpful it was to improve my gut health.  My entire life I’ve had digestive issues and after cleaning up what I eat and following Natalia’s advice those issues have been greatly reduced if not eliminated.

 

In February of 2021 I weighed 234 pounds.  By the time I first met with Natalia in July of 2021 I had worked that down to 225 pounds.  6 months later, in January 2022, I was down to 197 pounds, and in June 2022 I currently sit at 188 pounds.  So, I managed to lose 9 pounds on my own and then 37 more, so far, after following her advice.  Cholesterol and triglycerides have improved on my blood work; I’ve been successfully operating without any caffeine and my digestive issues are gone.

 

If you can honestly tell her what is going on with how/what you are eating, any digestive issues, etc. and she will help you figure out how to get from where you are towards where you want to go.  When I did this, Natalia was able to identify some likely things that could be responsible and started me on a 5R functional nutrition protocol to rebalance my gut and treat me for both SIBO and leaky gut.

 

I’ve wanted to get into better shape for some time.  I made some progress on my own but, by far, the best thing I did to achieve that has been to see Natalia.

"Being overweight and diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. I turned to Natalia and learn about what to and what not to eat. I lost 30 pounds over 2 months. That knowledge may have saved my life and I will be forever grateful"

Thomas Green, Sarasota Florida 

 

"I've been working with Natalia since January and I have lost 28 lb and 4 inches off my waistline. She knows what she's doing and she is a master of her craft. Thank you doctor!"
