Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner
Hi, I’m Cate Ritter. I’m on a mission to make the world a healthier and happier place one bite at a time.
As a Certified FDN® Practitioner, I use functional labs to identify the source of your symptoms and then addresses these root causes with dietary improvements, lifestyle modifications, and customized supplementation. Compliance-focused coaching gets the results you deserve while making eating healthy delicious and doable, so it’s sustainable. Forget quick fixes and fad diets. They only leave you feeling frustrated and hopeless. Let’s get to the source of your symptoms and eliminate them altogether.
Good Health Begins With Nutrition
I have a passion for helping others enjoy their lives more. I believe people are at their best when they feel their best. The foods you eat have a direct effect on how you feel. The fact that you can start transforming your health at your next meal is incredibly empowering. Good nutrition is certainly not the only factor for good health, but I believe it is the foundation. Good health begins with nutrition. When your body gets the nutrients it needs to feel good, everything in your life becomes easier.
What To Expect
With an abundance of misinformation, complicated recipes, and disastrous detoxes, improving your health can be extremely challenging. But, reaching your goals doesn’t need to be difficult, unsatisfying or frustrating. A good health program should be just the opposite. My health coaching helps you find the most enjoyable and efficient ways to improve your health now. “Start Here” for recipes, guides, and menus.
