Lara uses a food as medicine approach to heal you from the inside out.
I’m a Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist who specializes in Anti-Inflammatory and Ketogenic diet therapies. Over the past 6 years as a dietitian I have worked in a wide variety of settings including Cardiovascular ICU, Out Patient Cancer Center, Hemodialysis Clinic and Long Term Care Facilities.
Engaging with patients throughout these settings made me realize I wanted to help people on a deeper level. I started my private practice to give clients the individualized care they need to meet their nutritional goals.
Over the years with the emerging research linking ketogenic diets to health and longevity, I have slowly transitioned my practice to the low carb sphere. As someone who practices a ketogenic diet myself, I can relate and give insight and tips for better success and compliance with ketogenic diets.
As someone with a family history of cancer (both parents), metabolic syndrome, obesity, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia, I chose this lifestyle as a preventative measure. What I did not realize was the added benefits I would immediately receive by following this lifestyle (weight loss, improved sleep, increased energy and decreased sugar cravings).
In collaboration with your doctor we will individualize an anti-inflammatory or ketogenic diet to best fit your unique needs.
Who might benefit from a ketogenic diet?
Ketogenic diets have been used for many years to treat epilepsy. New emerging evidence suggest that ketogenic diets may be a useful treatment for cancer, traumatic brain injuries, autism, Parkinson’s Disease, migraines, ALS, diabetes, insulin resistence, hypertension, and sports performace.
