Rebecca is a North Carolina Licensed Nutritionist and Certified Nutrition Specialist.
She practices personalized nutrition in the Integrative/Holistic and Functional style.
Integrative or Holistic Nutrition refers to the natural approach to a healthy diet and considers the individual as a whole, including all aspects of lifestyle. This natural approach incorporates emotional, spiritual and physical health to create a state of well-being for optimum health. A holistic approach to proper nutrition encourages education on basic nutrition to develop a holistic diet that incorporates natural and organic foods, natural holistic supplements and food treatments for chronic health conditions.
Functional Nutrition is nutrition-based care that is focused on supporting the source of the symptoms, not the symptoms themself, as seen in most Western medical practices. Functional Nutrition care focuses on building health by restoring proper physiological functioning of the body. Multiple symptoms through the body, are clues that can be used to find where and how the body or body system(s) aren't functioning the way it should be. Rather than suppress those symptoms with natural or pharmaceutical agents, we want to “read” those symptoms to understand which systems of your body need support.
Using Integrative and Functional techniques and by looking at your whole picture -- diet, symptoms, illness history, medications, lifestyle, toxic exposure, history of antibiotic use, stress, lab work, etc., we are able to put together an overall plan. That plan serves as overall map of the nutrition your body needs to regain health and prevent illness.
What are People Saying about Rebecca’s Nutrition Services?
“I recently began to seek out help for nutrition services with Rebecca for various concerns I have and she has been extremely helpful, patient, and 100% non-judgmental. I highly recommend Mindful Family Wellness if you are interested in nutritional services that look beyond food to really figure out what's going on.” – Staci C.
“Rebecca's functional nutrition counseling has been a key aspect in getting my health on track. She has helped me make heads or tails of my MTHFR diagnosis. All the information surrounding MTHFR is overwhelming and confusing and Rebecca did such a good job breaking it down for me. She took time to understand my health history and explained all that was going on. There are so many things you can control with the correct diet and supplements but knowing which ones you need for your body is the hard part. Rebecca makes it easy! I love what I've learned from her and the new path I'm on to a healthier life.” – Liza W.
“Rebecca was an absolute pleasure to work with! I came to her for help with digestive and skin issues and she went above and beyond to help me feel better. She is very knowledgeable and truly took the time to dig into my symptoms. She was a great resource while I completed an elimination diet and helped to set me up with sustainable eating habits to keep me feeling good going forward. Thank you for everything!” – Gretchen K.
