What We Do

We’re Root-Cause Detectives

Our clients come to us with many seemingly unrelated symptoms, including digestive problems, thyroid dysfunction, joint pain, crushing fatigue, and more. All of these things interfere with everyday life. Instead of chasing each symptom, we get to the root cause and identify imbalances in the body that are preventing optimal function. Whether you are dealing with gut infections, mold toxicity, or anything in between, we can help.

We dig deep to uncover possible deficiencies, restore healthy digestion, balance blood sugar, address food sensitivities, balance hormones, and detoxify the body to support your body’s natural healing process. Humans are incredibly complex creatures. For many clients, a foundational approach to restoring good nutrition and overall wellness works wonders. For others, deeper underlying dysfunctions need to be addressed to allow the body to heal.

Laboratory Testing

We are trained to restore wellness using the tools and knowledge of advanced laboratory testing to identify imbalances and determine deeper issues, and targeted specialized supplementation to promote healing. We utilize a variety of laboratory tests to create customized protocols for each client, including:

  • blood chemistry
  • stool analysis
  • food sensitivity testing
  • adrenal testing
  • male hormone testing
  • female cycling hormone testing
  • menopausal hormones and bone health testing
  • thyroid testing
  • organic acids testing (OAT)
  • mycotoxin testing (mold)
  • heavy metals and chemical toxin screening
  • genetics analysis

We do not diagnose or treat disease.

Mold-related Illness

As a mold survivor herself, Ellen has dedicated much of her practice to working with these complex cases. Identifying mold-related illness in clients with chronic mysterious illness is her specialty. Finding answers to years (decades?) of unexplainable symptoms can start here. Additionally, if you already know you’ve been made sick by mold and are frustrated by your inability to make progress, we can help calm the various effects and start you on the road to healing.

Restoring energy, eliminating cognitive difficulties, and calming the immune system are key focuses. Every client suffering from toxin illness is unique, and our approach will be slow, steady, and effective. Ellen has been there and can help you find hope for health again.

“I have IBS and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. I was pretty miserable in terms of digestion and needed some help. Luckily I found Ellen. She understood my problems and provided effective advice and direction. I worked with her for over a year, she was able to help pinpoint problem foods for me, gave me a dietary path that worked for me. She is very easy to work with, has an impressive depth of knowledge and most of all it’s effective.”–Tim S.

“Ellen is great! I started working with Ellen because I had no appetite, and when I did eat, I got bloated. I wasn’t sleeping well and had chronic diarrhea. After some preliminary laboratory testing, Ellen put me on an anti-fungal diet and suggested supplements that would help eliminate an overgrowth of yeast. Within six weeks, I had my appetite back (without the bloat), I was sleeping better, and lost 10 pounds.

She is so knowledgeable. She taught me to make healthy eating choices and that made all the difference. Thank you, Ellen.”–Janet S., San Jose, CA
