What You Should Know About Nutrigenomics

Nutrigenomics has become the latest craze.  Is delving into your genes helpful or is it a waste of time & money?  This guide walks you through what nutrigenomic testing is and is not.  It also includes a strategy guide to help you determine if getting a dna test is right for you.  Get instant access below.

Candida Screening

Wonder if candida is playing a role in your symptoms?  Use our free, instant access (no email required!) screening questionnaire to see if Candida may be an underlying road block to resolving your health.

Functional Health Score

Have you been told your labs are normal while you feel chronically run down? Our symptoms are often dismissed in main-stream approaches. This quick multi-symptom questionnaire will help you see how much of an impact your symptoms are having on your health.  Instant results, no email needed!

A Quick message from Salena

After being devoted to understanding all that I could to navigate reversing autoimmunity in one of my children, I know that many people are simply not heard by their conventional health-care providers.  Worse, sometimes we bounce from specialist to specialist without ever really being given an answer or a plan of recovery.  That may be your story – or you may be searching for a life of profound health and energy, where your body is supported from the inside out, rather than being stuck with medications to treat symptoms, endlessly.

Welcome to this site, my hope is you will find information that empowers you for a successful journey to restoring health and wellness.
