Our mission is to help you resolve your health issues by identifying the root cause and support your health through proper nutrition and lifestyle management. Because all our bodies are different, we enjoy tailoring the health and wellness plan to work specifically for you.  Together we work on a path to better your health for the rest of your life.

We use multiple techniques and information in developing your personal nutrition and supplement programs and we love working with clients of all ages.

Bernie uses Functional Response Testing (FRT) to find the root cause of your symptoms. It is his adaptation of Dr. Ulan’s Nutrition Response Testing, developed through his own personal experiences and extensive training with Dr. Joseph Teff and Dr. Davis Brockenshire.

There is nothing more rewarding than the FRT success stories: the Crohn’s disease that was in reality caused a parasite, the autoimmune liver disease which was also from a parasite, the rash that was from chemical toxicity, and the hormone imbalance that was due to corn sensitivity! These four are just a few examples of the daily findings that we see in our office. You can read about others on the Testimonials pages.

Susana believes that obtaining a healthy relationship with food is essential for long-lasting health and vitality.

Away from our practice we enjoy spending time together, with our children, and with our dog Barry (who also has his own nutrition program!!), listening to music, going to concerts, and traveling around the world when we can.
