Julia is a Functional Nutritionist who takes a biology systems based approach that engages the patient and participatory care and searches for the root cause of underlying issues.
Julia graduated cum laude from Winthrop University with a degree in Human Nutrition while balancing being a wife and mom of three, Willow (2), Sawyer (7) and Jax (10).
Julia is a Certified Leap Therapist (CLT) which entails advanced clinical training in managing adverse food reactions with an emphasis on food sensitivities. CLTs apply that knowledge by using the LEAP protocol – an evidence-based and highly effective eating plan for food sensitivity related health problems. LEAP utilizes the patented Mediator Release blood Test (MRT) to help uncover food and chemical sensitivities, not IgE allergies or IgG immune responses.
Julia is furthering her education by completing Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP)® with the Institute of Functional medicine. AFMCP integrates the latest medical research with a model of care that accounts for each patient’s individual history, unique genetic makeup, and environmental and lifestyle factors. Many chronic diseases occur when fundamental lifestyle factors like diet, movement, rest, and/or sleep are lacking or mismatch with a patient’s genetic makeup. AFMCP allows Julia to design effective, personalized treatments for every client
