What is Nutrition Counseling?
Nutrition counseling is a process of collecting dietary information in order to correct imbalances and determine one's ideal diet and supplement requirements. Improved nutrition typically translates into better physical and mental energy and weight normalization. Over the long-term, a tailored program can reduce the risk of all kinds of diseases. Most people lack a nutrition plan or are confused about the proper diet to follow. I want you to have the confidence of knowing that your diet is right for you. You will then be more likely to stick to it.

My Philosophy
I recognize that one man's food is another man's poison. I am suspicious of those who proclaim one diet to be good for all or bad for all. Many nutritionists use a "one-size-fits-all" approach. I prefer to focus on your unique nutritional requirements based on your blood type, body type, genotype, metabolism, activity level and present condition. My approach blends cutting edge science with traditional health principles. I want you to realize your optimal genetic potential!
