What is Functional Nutrition?

Functional Nutrition focuses on the unique individual to promote health and prevent diseases. A holistic health plan is customized after examining food intake, genetics, health history and lifestyle choices. There is no one “right diet” and food and supplements are used to create a plan to maximize health.

Constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, bloating and gas symptoms can persist for years and affect our quality of life. Often these symptoms are classified as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and may indicate gut dysbiosis and leaky gut. Many studies have shown that there is communication between the gut and the brain, called the gut-brain axis. Leaky gut usually means leaky brain since there is a direct line between gut health and the health of the brain.


Worth Your Weight Nutrition is a virtual practice with zoom visits. However, in-person appointments can be arranged in White Plains, NY.
