Integrative Nutrition for All Phases of Cancer and Wellness
“The journey to wellness should be delicious and on your terms”
Gretchen Gruender MS, RDN, CSO
Are you ready to start feeling better?
Confused About Finding the "Right" Foods?
Have you been told to eat whatever you want by one person and told not to eat certain foods from someone else?
Are you tired of being overwhelmed by all of the mixed messages you’re getting? Let’s get to the root of the issues and help you feel confident about your choices through understanding the science and research.
What is Integrative Nutrition?
Integrative nutrition takes the entire person into consideration. It doesn't just address the symptoms but gets to the root cause through whole foods and other lifestyle approaches. It also acknowledges your own unique history and relationship with food.
Working with an integrative provider includes a combination of questionnaires, labs, physical assessment and an extensive intake appointment to bring together a complete picture. This is followed by recommendations and education to meet your goals.
Nutrition To Feel Your Best
Whether you are trying to make sense of your cholesterol numbers, digestive issues, protecting your bones, or just trying to put multiple diet recommendations together, we can unwrap these challenges and repackage in a way that makes sense for you.
Nutrition Through Treatment
Going into cancer treatment can be an overwhelming experience and nutrition may not be the first place you start or it can be at the top of your list. When you are ready to take a deeper dive into how nutrition can support and sustain you, let’s work together to create a plan.

I am passionate about the power of food in regaining our health.
Including Diabetes & Heart Disease
“Food, cooking, and nutrition have never really been important to me despite my excessive weight and poor family history. That all changed shortly after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I was reluctant to work with a nutritionist but was pleasantly surprised by Gretchen’s approach and demeanor. Gretchen does a great job of recommending trade-offs or food alternatives that are a stretch but are still attainable.
She has taken the time to not only recommend meals but also has gone the extra mile to provide cooking instructions ;) I was recently with people I had not seen for awhile and they were all surprised by how much more diverse and healthy my diet has become. I love the health benefits of my new lifestyle and so does my doctor. I am extremely grateful for Gretchen and know she would be of great support to anyone truly looking to improve their health.”
