Sandy is passionate about helping adults aspiring to achieve their health and lifestyle objectives. Understanding that many diseases are preventable and possibly reversible, she takes a whole-body functional nutrition approach. Scientific research backs the management of certain conditions with food and lifestyle modifications. Starting with a comprehensive nutritional assessment to determine individual nutritional needs, she partners with her clients to create a personalized nutrition intervention plan which they monitor together on a mutually defined basis. This consultation may provide needed nutrition education and/or target specific health needs, provide personalized dietary and nutritional’s recommendations, lifestyle modifications and/or coaching about lifestyle changes to support greater health and well-being. By addressing small incremental changes in your current lifestyle, we are able to make impactful improvements in your health!
