Functional Nutrition


Our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), Kathryn Hernke, specializes in Integrative and Functional Nutrition (IFN) Therapy. IFN is a leading edge, evidence-based and comprehensive approach to patient care that focuses on identifying root causes and system imbalances to significantly improve patient health outcomes. This emerging medical nutrition model combines the best of modern science, clinical wisdom and critical thinking and is being driven by increasing consumer demand, advancing technology and the changing healthcare landscape.


In addition to the standard RDN education and credentials, Kathryn has worked in hospitals and home-care using food to manage illness. Switching to a healthy population of young athletes, and later families, Kathryn saw first-hand the benefit of applying integrative principles to maximize health and performance. Discovering customized strategies to apply these principles of balance throughout life will help every age feel their personal best.

Working with Kathryn ensures that you will be working with a credentialed, experienced nutrition guide who can lead you to food-based solutions that build confidence while supporting your body and lifestyle.
