Welcome, I'm glad you're here

I can help you
Low energy, fatigue, food cravings, resistant weight loss, unexplained weight gain, hormone imbalances, mood disorders, neurodegenerative conditions, digestive issues, skin problems, allergies, asthma, autoimmune disease, hypertension, diabetes, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, migraine headache, vascular disease, arthritis, sleep disturbances, as well as many other chronic, complex conditions are examples of health problems that can be linked to imbalances in immune, metabolic and digestive function.
To appropriately address your health needs, we need to take into account your biochemistry, and uncover the root cause of imbalances that may be contributing to the conditions you have. This is the functional medicine approach. All of the systems in your body are connected. When one is not functioning optimally and the root cause is left to persist, it can adversely affect other systems, creating a domino effect of illness and disease. Medications mask symptoms, leaving us unaware of the continued damage that is occurring within. Functional nutrition is the core of functional medicine and can help you reach optimal health with natural means, whether you have chronic, complex health problems, or want to improve your health and wellness.
You've changed your diet and nothing seems to work? We aren't just what we eat. We are what our bodies can do with what we eat. Rather than only making sure you are eating right, we need to make sure your body can digest, absorb and use nutrients from the foods you eat. Your diet may be stellar, but if your body can't use those nutrients, your perfect diet doesn't matter much, and won't help you feel better.
All your labs are normal, and you still feel awful? Too often, our conventional lab results are "normal" yet we still don't feel well. While labs may appear "normal" for conventional medical practice, they can be far from optimal and therefore underlying dysfunction can be causing your symptoms. This underlying dysfunction is where our opportunity lies to help you improve your health.
Why supplements? Nutrient supplementation can be a key factor for improving overall metabolic function, and therefore it can positively impact the issues you are experiencing. Often, due to long standing deficiency and imbalances, the addition of supplemental nutrients can help restore metabolic processes to their optimal state.
At Jennifer Caryn Brand Nutrition, we focus on being healthy first rather than on counting calories, or implementing the latest fad diet. It is important to understand that there is no one size fits all approach. Your plan will be different from anyone else's, and may incorporate aspects of a variety of different dietary philosophies and protocols.
Nutritional needs vary at all stages of life, from infancy to end of life. It is important to address these needs in order to obtain optimal health now, and in the future, and that's why I see clients of all ages.
Nutrition is my passion, and I have a love for helping people. As a clinical nutritionist, I'll give you the personal and individualized attention you need to optimize your health.
