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's for 10 years. David is highly trained and his amazing human warmth has given me a peaceful mind and healthy body. I had gastric cancer and had my stomach and spleen removed. During the surgery I needed a blood transfusion, which infected me with the Hepatitis C virus. Years later, my digestive system still had problems due to the removal of my stomach. David was able to help improve my digestive system with his herbal formulas. He has also been helping me with my Hep C and my recent liver biopsy determined that my condition hasn't progressed in the last 10 years and I'm in good health. He shares with me the latest developments in treatment and maximizes my potential for living well." mm
