Holistic Nutritional Therapy – Minneapolis St. Paul, MN
Without food, life is impossible. Unfortunately, modern life often keeps us from eating a diet that leads to and supports our health. Reliance on fast food, over-processed food, and the wrong combinations of foods leaves many people today poorly nourished. This can lead to a long list of health problems, from obesity and diabetes to lack of energy and poor recovery from even minor illnesses. One of the best ways we can help ourselves to wellness and a life full of energy and well-being is to plan and follow a diet that meets all of our nutritional requirement and is free from harmful ingredients.

Recognizing that proper nutrition and a balanced diet is an important key to health, she offers nutritional counseling to the patients she sees in her Wayzata practice. Nutritional counseling, combined with her use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is part of her balanced holistic approach to healing and the maintenance of wellness.
I initially saw Amy in the hopes of alleviating symptoms from fibromyalgia. After getting my pain under control, we started to work together on weight loss. With Amy’s assistance and coaching, I lost over 30 pounds in 4 months. I feel stronger, healthier and more energetic. Pairing nutrition with acupuncture has helped me immensely. Amy’s patience, passion for good health and dedication to helping others sets her apart from other practitioners! – Nina, Minnetonka, MN
