“Meryl and her staff were very welcoming and made me feel extremely comfortable while educating me on ways to improve my nutrition. I look forward to our next visit to continue learning more positive directions to improve my health.”

Meryl Brandwein, RD/LDN.

Being told, “You have cancer,” at the age of 33, is terrifying. With three kids under the age of four, I wondered “would I be ok and how would my family ever survive if I wasn’t?” Feeling helpless I soon faced the boundaries of modern medicine and a lack of understanding from those charged with my care.

Always questioning those who told me that I would “feel sick” I began to explore alternative ways of healing myself. I used my illness to explore options and discovered that food was a powerful tool to support me in healing and feeling better.

Turning my curiosity into a passion to help others, I’ve been studying food and its power to heal for over 20 years.

As a leader in the area of functional health and integrative nutrition, I specialize in educating and providing nutritional strategies for a number of health related issues.  From weight loss and food lifestyle change to hormonal imbalances, anti-aging nutrition, childhood obesity and medical nutritional therapy for chronic conditions and diseases, including cancer nutrition therapies, I can help you find relief.

I personally work with each of my clients to create a plan that considers lifestyle, stress, as well as addressing the cause of your symptoms. Discover what it means finally feel good again and get back to living a healthy .

  • "Life changing experience. When I went to Meryl I was exhausted all the time, in the afternoon even worse, I had no energy. I could not sleep at night, had trouble focusing, overwhelmed over small stuff, having hot flashes , the list goes on. After Meryl's wellness plan everything changed. My life and more importantly the life of my family changed."

  • "I’ve been seeing Meryl for about 5 years now and she is amazing!! I was having so many gut issues, had been through 5 different types of Gastroenterologist with absolutely no help. One Doctor even had the nerve to say it was all in my head. Defeated and very depressed I was told about Meryl from a friend. I went to see Meryl and it changed my life. Meryl and her team are amazing. They run the test Doctor’s refuse to acknowledge. She works to get to the root of the issue, not just the symptoms, all while educating you on food and their power of healing. I highly recommend Meryl for anyone looking to feel better!"
