Nutrition, health, and wellness by Ellen Lovelace, MPH, NTC, RWS
Holistic nutritionist, wellness educator, and functional health practitioner.
Are you struggling to achieve optimal wellness?
Do you find that you are….
- Driven by intense food cravings?
- Needing afternoon coffee breaks every day?
- Waking up tired and disinterested in breakfast?
- Feeling gassy and bloated after every meal?
- Coping with multiple food sensitivities?
- Dealing with intense PMS every month?
- Not as interested in sex as you used to be?
- Gaining and losing the same 10 pounds over and over?
I work with people like you every day. People who are struggling to find balance and vitality in their lives. And who are confused by all of the conflicting information and nutrition “noise” out there.
The fact is, the Standard American Diet is just that—SAD. We grow up with no formal education on what truly healthy eating looks like. Our doctors don’t even study it in medical school! We are inundated with messages about what to/not to eat, how to live, the latest fad diet, or the supplement you must be taking. It’s almost impossible to sort through all of that and find a path to a healthier life.
Health challenges and a lack of vitality don’t have to be the norm. Does the idea of living a life full of wellness sound unachievable to you? Imagine being fitter, healthier, and more energized than ever before. Imagine the end of chronic health issues. Imagine springing out of bed, well rested, eager to get to a day full of eating delicious food that fuels you and makes you feel terrific.
Living a genuinely balanced, vital life begins with overcoming all of the nutrition “noise”, understanding how our bodies work, and why certain foods fuel us better than others. Learning to listen to your body’s individual needs is a journey that will lead you to a place of health and wellness like none you’ve experienced.
Maybe you’re looking to increase your general wellness, or support yourself in a time of extreme stress. Or, you’re an athlete, and you want to up your performance level. Perhaps you’re thinking of starting a family, and want to optimize your health pre-conception. Maybe a doctor has told you that “there’s nothing wrong,” yet you feel terrible. Or maybe you’re finally ready to figure out why you can’t lose those stubborn pounds no matter what you do. I’m ready to help you address your concerns and achieve your goals.
My work is focused on optimizing health and wellness through the use of a nourishing whole foods-based diet, as well as supplements and advanced laboratory testing (where needed). By examining possible deficiencies, restoring healthy digestion, balancing blood sugar, addressing food sensitivities, balancing hormones, and detoxifying the body, as well as addressing lifestyle challenges, I work to help your body heal and restore the health and vitality you seek. Rather than chasing symptoms, I bring you to a balanced state of overall wellness, and help you to eat, drink, and thrive.

“I have been working with Ellen for the past six months. During this time, Ellen has been an amazing source of nutritional knowledge and encouragement. Although I don’t have food sensitivities, I wanted to learn to make better choices in the food I was eating and feeding to my family. Ellen provided the information I needed to make those healthful choices. Over the past six months I have stabilized my weight (losing 10 pounds in the first 2 months and keeping it off), increased my energy, and improved my sleep. Ellen has taught me to shop better, cook better, and eat better, all in the most encouraging way. The nutritional education and support she provides has truly made a difference in my life.” —Laurie, Silver Spring, MD
