We’d like to extend a warm WHA intruduction to Kelsey Marksteiner, a registered dietitian and local community member. The new year is the perfect time to take back your health and invest in yourself and with that in mind, Kelsey has generously offered a 20% discount to WHA readers who book an appointment by next Wednesday.  A list of her services can be seen here.

Ever feel like your doctor doesn’t listen to you and merely throws a prescription your way for whatever complaint you have? If so, it’s time to start working with a nutritionist trained in functional medicine. Functioanl medicine practitioners treat the cause of your symptoms, not the symptoms themselves. Change the way you eat, and you change the way your body functions. If you’re tired of being sick, exhausted, and overweight, Kelsey is here to help.

In her practice, Kelsey sees many clients who are dealing with chronic illnesses like hypertension, diabetes, autoimmune conditions, and gastrointestinal complaints. Kelsey will work with you to determine a personalized, nutrient-rich diet and supplement program (if necessary) to help you feel your best. Much of her practice focuses on healing the gut, as the health of your gut determines your overall health. There are many foods that can be damaging or irriating to that gut (such as gluten, sugar, and industrial seed oils). Work with Kelsey to limit your exposure to processed foods and increase your consumption of pastured meats, organ meats, bone broths, fermented foods, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, and traditional, wholesome fats to help fuel and heal the gut and improve your health and wellbeing.
