Philosophy

As the science of clinical nutrition continues to evolve, so does the recognition that nutrients from food and dietary supplements provides information to genes in the body. Each person is a biochemically unique individual and consuming the correct balance of nutrients can provide the best outlook for a healthy life. Helping individuals achieve that goal is the primary reason I have studied nutrition for over thirty-five years.
