Do you believe properly nourishing your body is too hard? Have you tried “everything” but still feel unsatisfied with your health, weight, or energy levels? Do you want someone to listen to your story, help you through the struggles, and give you hope on your path to optimal health? Do you want to push your health to the next level?
I can address all of these questions plus many more you may have. My name is Paula Sturm and I am a Registered Dietitian with a focus in Functional Nutrition. Many people wonder what Functional Nutrition is and how it can help them. Functional Nutrition actually goes under the symptoms of disease or diagnosis and looks for the root cause and addresses it with whole foods and supplements to support your body in it’s process toward recovery. Often times people feel unwell before they are even diagnosed with a condition. This is were Functional nutrition works its best! With your participation I am able to work with each individual’s lifestyle, past history, symptoms, and lab work to develop a unique nutrition plan to support your health.
I believe we are meant to feel as good, energetic, vibrant, and alive as we possibly can. If you don’t there is a reason and we can find it. I believe each person is unique, with their own story, which all plays into their individual healing process. I believe everyone needs strong support when they are making changes to their health. I strive to be that person you can count on. I also believe humor is powerful medicine. As much as I use science as my guide, I equally enjoy finding reasons to laugh and bringing lightness to situations when appropriate.
