HI, I'M MEGAN

Functional Medicine Nutritionist &

Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner

My mission is to support and empower women to become the most vibrant and healthy versions of themselves so that they can live out their unique purpose in life and realize their dreams. I help women of all ages to restore what I refer to as the "Root Vitality" of their minds, bodies and spirits.

My clinical approach blends the cutting edge science of Functional Medicine Nutrition with the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda. I help women identify the underlying cause(s) of imbalances in their bodies that are perpetuating dis-ease. I carefully select the appropriate dietary, lifestyle, nutraceutical, and/or botanical therapies to correct that root cause so that healing can unfold.

 

My clinic is 100% online which means that I can work with women from anywhere in the world in the comfort of their own homes! In my care, you will receive up-to-date, evidence-based and compassionate nutrition guidance combined with practical Ayurvedic insights that will leave you empowered to recover your own "Root Vitality."

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE NUTRITION?

Functional Nutrition is an approach to healthcare that emphasizes eating in a way that is personalized to your genetics, lifestyle, environmental factors and unique combination of health concerns. Its philosophy is that food is information for our cells and connection for our lives, not just energy (calories). Functional Nutrition looks to address the root cause of dis-ease by identifying triggers and mediators of the sources of disharmony in the body. It uses tools like whole, real foods, pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements, and healing lifestyle practices to correct biochemical imbalances. The Functional Nutritionist looks first and foremost to the broad breadth of scientific literature to inform her recommendations for each individual.

WHAT IS AYURVEDA?

India's Traditional System of Medicine

Ayurveda is the traditional system of medicine that evolved out of India. Ayurveda is an ancient medicine, tried and true with 2,000 years of wisdom behind it. It is a sister science to Yoga and sometimes employs Yogic practices such as pranayama (breathing techniques) to compliment its vast array of botanical, lifestyle and dietary therapies always personally tailored to each individual. Ayurveda espouses bio-psycho-spiritual integration to achieve true health and wellness. It sees all these aspects of ourselves as interrelated entities working together to produce a single biological system that we call a human being. In this manner, it examines any given complaint within the context of the whole and is truly holistic.

UNIFYING

PRINCIPALS

of Functional Medicine & Ayurveda

  • Health is more than the absence of disease, it is a positive vitality and encompasses well-being of mind, body and spirit. 

  • All systems in the body are interconnected - each affecting the other and none existing in isolation from the other.

  • The root cause of imbalance must be addressed for the body to self-correct.

  • We are each biochemically and constitutionally unique individuals and thus, require a personalized approach to healthcare.​
