Nutritional Testing, Counseling & Coaching

Although food provides us with both nutrition and pleasure, poor nutritional choices can lead to serious physical and emotional problems.

Do you…

  • feel tired most of the time or have an energy crash midday?
  • struggle with gas, bloating, abdominal pain, reflux, constipation, or diarrhea?
  • worry about your weight?
  • have trouble concentrating or brain fog?
  • suspect you have food intolerances or sensitivities?
  • feel lost about what’s “healthy” to eat or if you should take supplements?

Or, if you’ve been diagnosed with or suspect you have a more serious nutritional problem like IBS, Crohn’s, Colitis, SIBO, or GERD, the Kaplan Center can help you.
