Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy Services with North Carolina Certified Nutritionists & Registered Dietitians

Healthcare That’s Different Than What You’re Used To

At Empowered Nutrition

  • We see you as a whole person. You are not just a set of separate organ systems.
  • Your diet plan, therefore, will fit your unique lifestyle, preferences, health concerns, and needs.
  • We will also find and address the root causes of discomfort, chronic pain or fatigue, weight loss or weight gain, and other issues with our functional nutrition programs.
  • Lastly, our goal is your independence. Rest assured, you won’t need us forever!

The human body is complex, and so is nutrition. However, we’re not ordinary dietitians. We are also trained in Integrative and Functional Nutrition Therapy, and we’re experts at finding the root causes of your health problems through a holistic approach. We then translate your story into a realistic, functional nutrition therapy plan. In addition to nutrition counseling, you have the option to optimize your plan with the use of functional laboratory testing, individualized nutraceutical protocols, body composition testing, and/or resting metabolic rate testing.       

We also believe that you deserve support from a helpful community. Therefore, we offer guided group functional nutrition programs.

Finally, our goal is for you to outgrow us.  We know we’ve succeeded when you no longer need our help!
