Denise Canellos, MS, CNS, Nutritionist/Dietitian in Irvine
I'm Denise Canellos, a Board Certified Nutritionist specializing in treating chronic disease. I firmly believe that good, healing food should be delicious and easy. My husband George was diagnosed with colon cancer at 38. It was devastating for our family when George died from his cancer. I felt a pull to help others navigate the confusing world of healthcare and nutrition. After earning my MS in Human Nutrition, I passed my American College of Nutrition Board exam and started using science to help people like you get back their health and their hope.
My graduate thesis investigated nutrition's role during cancer treatment, and I continue to work with people for whom cancer is a health concern: during and after treatment, as well as prevention for those at high risk of developing cancer. Eating well doesn't have to be hard, I promise.
I also have success using nutrition strategies to ease gastrointestinal and autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. If you give eating well a chance, you may be amazed by how much better you feel. I want you to have the best possible quality of life and enjoy your food!
