Functional Nutritional Counseling

David Lerner, L.Ac., Nutritional Counselor Seattle, WA and Olympia, WA

In order to reach and maintain optimal levels of health, it is of primary importance that we consume a nutritious and healthful diet, get a sufficient amount of rest and exercise regularly. David has been a passionate student of various nutrition philosophies for over 20 years. In addition to his background in traditional Chinese nutritional theory, David offers advice based on his training in whole food and functional nutrition. He has been particularly influenced by the teachings of Dianna Schwarzbein, MD, Donnie Yance, CN, MH, RH (AHG), Datis Kharrazian, DC, D.H.Sc.,MS, Loren Cordain, PhD, and many of the philosophies of the Weston A. Price Foundation. He doesn't believe that we can get optimal nutrition from diet alone, and he advocates for various whole food nutritional supplements and herbs in an effort to create the optimal diet for each individual.

David offers functional nutritional consultations via skype/phone or in office.

Testimonials

"I have been a patient of David Lerner for about five years, and I give him a 100% approval rating. Most important are that he knows his stuff and he listens well. He has treated me for physical injuries and pain (neck, low back, pelvis, knee & ankle) as well as for such psychological challenges as loss, grief, depression and anxiety. (Not everything all the same time, but sometimes life knocks you around a bit!) He's excellent. David applies his knowledge of both acupuncture and nutrition, and works well with allopathic practitioners, too. I have recommended David to more than five or six friends who have all enjoyed and benefited from his treatment. In Seattle David has developed quite a following among women living through cancer treatment and recovery. Everyone likes him. He is consistently respectful, funny when appropriate, and always working to improve my overall health and wellbeing." dc
