Nutritional Consultations

Dr. Nicolas Chillemi, DC, MS, CNS is a clinical nutritionist with a practice that focuses on a personalized, whole body approach that investigates the root of the issue through functional testing and then customizes a program that alleviates any health concerns and promotes health.

You truly are WHAT YOU EAT and when you introduce the proper foods into your diet and allow proper digestion to occur, you'll be AMAZED at how our body responds! If you're like most of us, you have probably tried a variety of diets. And you may or may not have experienced some good results. But if you're like millions of Americans, those results were short lived and you either plateaued or gained some, if not all, of it back. However, diets emphasizing willpower, deprivation and denial is both unnecessary and counter-productive. The reality is that, unless you have a plan that is practical, works with your lifestyle and takes your individuality into account, it will not last.

Conventional dietary theories present you with food restrictions and limitations that are difficult to sustain over time. Such quick fixes do nothing to help you achieve life-long wellness nor do they bring out the body’s natural inclination toward balance.

We can offer you simple nutritional advice, proper supplementation, or the personalized nutritional program that addresses your individual needs and lifestyle choices.
