Food Not Pharmacy utilizes an Integrative and Functional Nutrition (IFN) approach for clients. The goal of IFN is to promote health and prevent diet and lifestyle-related diseases through the utilization of principles/concepts of integrative medicine. A Registered Dietitian who practices Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy looks at the foundational way that food affects your body at a cellular level. Therapies may include a combination of botanical medicines (herbs) or supplements and/or therapeutic diets. I am pleased to offer highly personalized nutrition solutions incorporating results from specialized nutrition-related testing along with your answers to detailed lifestyle questionnaires. The end result is a comprehensive personalized nutritional blueprint designed specifically for you. DNA testing - simple genetic testing that allows for personalized nutrition recommendations based on your DNA. Results include: nutrient metabolism, cardiometabolic health, weight management and body composition, food intolerances, eating habits, physical activity and fitness. Tests are available for: Health, Sport, Fertility, Weight Management, Plant-Based Diets. Micronutrient analysis at the cellular level - This test will evaluate how 31 different vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants are working within your cells. This test will also show any micronutrient deficiencies, how well your cells can withstand oxidative stress, how well your cells are metabolizing carbohydrates and how adeptly your cells function when launching an immune response.
