The Body Bliss Nutrition Approach
Body Bliss Nutrition is a private practice dedicated to helping clients uncover the hidden, yet problematic changes in the body that often go unseen through conventional testing methods. I will assess prior blood testing from a “functional” perspective that utilizes a more stringent set of criteria to find patterns and changes in the body. Additionally, I may recommend further testing based on your needs including assessment of the small and large intestine thought breath (SIBO) and stool analysis, food intolerance testing and others.
I am proudly partnered with Nurse Practitioner Marilynn Karas and work with her closely on cases requiring additional medical intervention. Marilynn is a women’s health and hormone expert who utilizes a blend of Functional Medicine along with her traditional training and expertise.

Embrace Your Microbiome
I work with clients to improve the body by removing the triggers of inflammation, optimizing the availability of nutrients and magnifying health by supporting the body’s immune, metabolic and detoxification pathways. The right plan can shorten healing times allowing you to regain the sense of vibrancy you may feel you’ve lost.
At the very center of health is the community of trillions of organisms commonly called the gut microbiome. Changes here can impact every part of the body including the brain, mood, cognition, digestion, intestinal health, immunity, metabolism, hormones, skin and inflammation. The core of my approach, focuses on strengthening and rebuilding this ecosystem laying a powerful foundation for every system of the body.
As a holistic practitioner I understand that stress levels and mental state greatly impact health as well. As part of my services I work with clients to reduce stress levels by utilizing breathing and meditation techniques when needed.
The key to proper care starts with an understanding of your unique needs. In my practice I use several types of cutting edge tests to asses and uncover changes in the body that require support including:
• Hydrogen/Methane breath testing (for SIBO)
• Food Sensitivity Testing
• Salivary Genetics Testing
• Salivary Cortisol Testing
• Stool Analysis
• Functional Blood Testing
• Urine Analysis
