What is a Functional Medicine Nutritionist?

Benefits of Working with a Functional Medicine Provider

Cookin' Up Fitness is here to help you create the life you want and deserve with a customized approach. As a functional medicine nutritionist/registered dietitian who specializes in cellular healing, I look at the body as a whole and create restoration programs to remove internal, external, and emotional toxins that drive dysfunction and disease. This inside out healing approach is one of a kind and works to restore,  rebalance, and revitalize heal from the inside out. 

At Cookin' Up Fitness, we take the time to get to know you and understand what is causing your health imbalance. We believe in going straight to the core of the source—uncovering the underlying cellular toxins driving the digestive issues, food sensitivities, nutrient deficiencies, energy depletions, emtional imbalances, and physiological stressors. With the total toxin burden data in hand, we help you create an actionable plan for improving your health that can be successfully implemented over time.

While gut health plays a major role in how we feel, both physically and mentally, it's only one aspect of the bigger picture. Gut toxins have been linked to everything from chronic pain and depression to compromised immunity and skin health. Additionally, the gut is our body's largest source of serotonin, the neurotransmitter associated with positive feelings such as happiness, joy, optimism, and pleasure. It is also home to trillions of commensal bacteria that work together to help regulate digestion, absorption, and elimination. When our gut is out of balance, from toxin overload, it can lead to digestive discomfort and fatigue, as well as a weakened immune system.

The good news is that removing toxins and restoring gut health doesn't have to be complicated. We believe the foundation of well-being starts from deep within the cells. That's why we take a simple approach to healing by removing cellular debris. We create individualized plans that focus on identifying the toxin load, absorption barriers, drainage, metabolism, mitochondrial (internal battery), immune system and emotional resiliency to help you feel your best again.
