What should I eat?
Why can’t I lose weight?
Why am I so tired?
If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, you aren’t alone. Thousands of patients have sat in my office and asked me these as well other questions related to their health and nutrition. It’s why I have a functional nutritionist on my staff.

Perhaps you already eat healthily and exercise regularly, and still the weight won’t come off. It’s possible that the exercise you’re engaged in is making you fatter and decreasing your metabolism. If you have underlying endocrine imbalances and nutritional deficiencies, it’s no wonder you can’t seem to get the body you want.
We can help.
You need a proven approach that utilizes scientific analysis coupled with holistic medical modalities. You need a team with knowledge and authority on nutrition as well as metabolism. And you need a comprehensive nutritional evaluation to begin your weight loss journey.
Your nutritional evaluation begins with an in-depth discussion so that we can learn your eating habits, your lifestyle and other health patterns and issues. During the evaluation we will conduct a series of comprehensive tests to give us more insight into you and your body. These tests will provide us with a unique functional profile that will determine your areas of deficiency.
These highly sophisticated tests provide information about oxidative stress and energy production, as well as give us a comprehensive look at how your body burns fat, by looking at potential insufficiencies of a group of nutrients including carnitine, NAC, lipoic acid, and CoQ10. They will determine your body’s inflammatory potential based on fatty acid balance and even reveal unknown digestive abnormalities that may be causing health problems. We also investigate food sensitivities that have been implicated in everything from skin disorders to autoimmune disease.
