Information for Patients

From the practitioner: About My Practice

Natural Choice Nutrition works with pediatrics to seniors. Being certified in Functional Medicine, I specialize in gastrointestinal disorders such as Crohn's & Celiac Disease, colitis, IBS, and reflux. I am also certified in SIBO (small intestinal bowel overgrowth), by Dr. Allison Siebecker. Cardiac health, diabetes, HTN, inflammatory and autoimmune disorders are also many issues that are addressed.

Each client is unique and requires a different approach. Getting to the root of the issue is key!
