At our first session, the average person tells me "I know what I need to do, I just wish I had the willpower to do it." Many rely on sheer willpower to accomplish their goals instead of learning how to make nutrition a simple and enjoyable process. Nutrition is not supposed to be this hard or guilt-inducing. It should primarily mold around your general life and preferences, not the other way around. My main approach to accomplish this is to build a basic understanding on why your old habits do not work, and why these new habits will work.

Finding foods that help you meet your health goals can be challenging. Hormonal imbalance, nutrient deficiencies, or autoimmune conditions can muddy the waters. With 80% of the body’s immune system residing in the gut, working with a practitioner that understands how food effects the microbiome and hormones, is essential to creating a practical path to wellness. Do you suffer from chronic health conditions such as lupus, IBD, fibromyalgia, RA, MS, or others? Do you have signs of poor digestion such as IBS, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, or struggle with stubborn weight? The type of food you are consuming could be to blame.

Do you suffer from symptoms related to food sensitivities, but are unable to pinpoint exactly how or which foods? Do you have chronic health conditions related to inflammation, such as IBS, Migraines, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Colitis, or others? Your everyday foods can often provoke these conditions. As a Registered & Licensed Dietitian who is also a Certified LEAP Therapist, I use the MRT lab-assisted elimination diet to help treat your symptoms related to food intolerances. Having worked in OB/Gyne for 20+ years, I also specialize in all aspects of women's health, from pregnancy to menopause and more.

How can an Illinois Nutritionist help me?
Dietitians and Nutritionists in Illinois provide advice on good eating habits. They help you with your diet and how it affects your health. They assess nutrition needs and food patterns, plan a diet that's appropriate for your physical and dietary needs, and provide nutrition counseling, such as advice on dietary changes and menu plans. They advise on special diets for medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, food allergies, and obesity.

The word dietitian has a variant spelling 'dietician' (e.g. find an Illinois dietician). Both spellings are correct.

About Illinois Registered Dietitians
Registered Dietitians or Registered Dietitian Nutritionists in Illinois complete a bachelor's degree at a school accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, as well as a period of supervised practice and an exam administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. While certification is not required in all states for nutritional counseling or nutrition therapy, only individuals certified by their respective states may use the Certified Dietitian or Certified Nutritionist titles.

How to use my insurance?
Some Nutritionists and Illinois dietary professionals accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the Nutritionist or Dietitian.
