Nutrition Services

Individualized Nutrition Therapy

Whether concerned about weight management or trying to use diet and lifestyle to control a chronic condition, utilizing the help of a dietitian takes the guesswork out of nutrition.  Whitney uses your personal medical and weight history to determine what the barriers to optimal health are and how to overcome those.  It is important to understand that this process is entirely tailored to the individual.  Health advice isn't one-size-fits-all and nutrition shouldn't be either.  Whitney wants to help you live a healthy and energized life.

How it works...

Please purchase services through our store or inquire with Whitney for a free 10-minute phone consultation if you're not sure if nutrition services feel right for you.  

The consultation consists of a comprehensive nutrition assessment that focuses on medical and weight history, dietary habits, current supplements and your specific health concerns.  You and Whitney will build on that assessment to determine a nutrition action plan and goals together.  She will provide sound nutrition advice and be able to send you home with resources for implementing changes right away.

Nutrition Testing

Whitney offers various nutrition tests as part of a comprehensive nutrition profile and plan. It is highly advisable that you set up an initial consultation with Whitney for thorough review of past medical history and risk factors to identify the test(s) that would be the best fit for you.

LEAP MRT Food Hypersensitivity Testing

Whitney is trained in Mediator-Release Testing, blood test that allows identification of food sensitivities that are playing a role in conditions such as migraines, diarrhea-predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), fibromyalgia, eosinophilic esophagitis, and in some cases; chronic sinusitis, skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD), etc.  MRT testing is a highly-sensitive and reproducible end-point inflammation test.  We then work together to use those test results to create an elimination diet protocol to remove all inflammation from the system, heal the gut, and put the condition into remission.

*If you are in the tri-state area, you must travel to CT or NJ with the test kit for your blood draw.

Please visit the LEAP website to learn more about testing methodology.

Pinnertest Permanent Food Intolerance TESTING

Whitney has experience with Pinnertest, a blood test that allows identification of permanent food intolerance, which typically indicates an enzymatic deficiency in one's ability to process certain foods, that in turn may wreak additional havoc on the body.  We then work together to remove those foods from the diet and begin to heal the inflammation in the gut.

Please visit the Pinnertest website to learn more about testing methodology.

Spectracell Comprehensive Nutritional Panel

Whitney has experience with Spectracell testing, a blood test that looks closely at micronutrient stores in the body.  The test includes 12 vitamins, 5 minerals, 3 amino acids, 7 antioxidants, and 8 metabolites that can help you understand your metabolism and immune system health.  We then work together to determine a supplementation and eating plan to heal deficiencies, mitigate risk of metabolic disease and boost the immune system.
