I am not a medical doctor.  I have master’s degree in Human Nutrition and have been trained to practice clinical nutrition from a functional medical perspective.  The information in this blog is not intended to treat, cure, or prevent any medical disease.  If you have a current physical condition that requires medical attention, then I advise you to seek the advice of a medical doctor.  If you are interested in learning how to enhance your health with nutrition or utilize nutrition as a complimentary way to manage your health, then I advise you to seek the advice of someone trained in clinical and functional nutrition like myself.

There is a plethora of scientific evidence that shows proper nutrition can be used to potentially restore health and/or prevent disease.  It is the basis of Medical Nutrition Therapy.  However, it is important to realize that nutrition is a very complex science that should be practiced under the advice of a professional.  To try and weed through the conflicting information on the internet and in the news in order to reap health benefits is nearly impossible for anyone without an advanced, formal education in nutrition.  

We are literally facing an internet and mass media landscape where certain organizations want you to remain confused about nutritional information so that they can continue to profit from the thousands of “food-like”, edible products on the grocery store shelves that are doing you and your health no good whatsoever.  My goal is to provide information about nutrition, food, and food industry practices so that you can understand what is true and accurate information. 

Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the information in my articles.
