Her passion for understanding the foundations of what makes us well or unwell ignited in 1993 when her young daughter was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer. A relentless search for the underlying cause of this cancer led Dr. Nelson to a simple conclusion: dietary choices profoundly affect human physiology. In the years that followed, Dr. Nelson became determined to share this insight, a fundamental, far-reaching truth that is the basis of her practice today.
Now healthy and the mother of four children of her own, Dr. Nelson's daughter is the first of countless patients to benefit from targeted diet and lifestyle changes addressing the underlying causes of illness. Dr. Nelson remains committed to sharing her knowledge and inspiring simple modifications to the way patients eat and live -- changes that can dramatically improve well-being now and for generations to come.
