Welcome to Your New Health Chapter.
At Happy Gut Nutrition Counseling, we work on your health goals and concerns using a root-cause approach for people of all ages. For kiddos, this means a kid-centered approach to learning to eat and feeling comfortable eating various foods. Sometimes adults need support with this, too!
While increasing food variety may be one aspect of working together, we know that healthy eating may look different for each of us. Each nutrition care plan is tailored individually, incorporating your medical history, preferences, and culture. We can work with your primary care provider's recommendations or on your specific requests.
We offer a variety of nutrition visits including personalized functional nutrition, digestive and gastrointestinal health, food intolerances and sensitivities, and pediatric nutrition (including learning to eat, picky eating, and sensory sensitivities).

What is Functional Nutrition?
Functional nutrition is essentially approaching food as medicine. It takes someone's unique lifestyle factors and health into account in order to promote more balance where it might be lacking. It is a lot like regular nutrition, except there is a more emphasis on your bio-individuality and overall lifestyle-- good nutrition is more than just the food on your plate! Your sleep, stress, chronic conditions, and of course comfort with a variety of health-promoting foods can also impact your health. Lifestyle factors can in turn have an impact on your food choices, digestion, and absorption. There is no shame in wherever you are. We got you!
