feel better from the inside out
The food and nutrients you consume are the building blocks for a healthy, vibrant life. Your body is your best doctor when it comes to signaling there is a problem through common symptoms like fatigue, digestive issues, hormonal imbalance, headaches, congestion…(you fill in the blank). The good news is, food is your best medicine when it comes to dealing with the chronic conditions so many of us are plagued with. A diet of whole, unrefined, nutrient dense foods will provide your body with the raw materials necessary to support self-healing. I will help you sift through those contradicting health claims and put you in control of your health through education, support and nutritional therapies based on your unique biochemistry.
As a Certified Nutrition Consultant and Nutrition Educator practicing functional, whole-foods nutrition in Palo Alto, California, it’s my aim to partner with you to integrate healing, nourishing foods into your daily lifestyle. Growing up in my mom’s organic garden in Southern California I learned to appreciate the bounty nature provides year after year and began to understand the important role food plays in our health and well being.
After earning my Bachelor’s degree in Economics & Business from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA, I spent my free time scouring cookbooks and researching nutrition science in order to best feed myself and my family. Upon realizing my unique passion for nourishing the body through food, I decided to pursue nutrition full time and now spend my free time cooking for family and friends, visiting farmer’s markets, enjoying the outdoors, and appreciating the California sunshine.

Remove stumbling blocks to good health
I founded Drew Parisi Nutrition in order to support adults, children and entire families in nutritional and lifestyle modifications that provide real nourishment and real health, from the inside out. Through food and supplemental nutrition therapies, I work to improve digestion and absorption of nutrients, balance hormones, optimize detoxification and modulate immune function. When these systems are properly supported, underlying health conditions causing digestive, weight, sleep, mood, immune and hormone dysfunction can be alleviated and optimal health can be restored.
I firmly believe in the body’s natural capacity to heal when provided with real nourishment and work with individuals to incorporate the timeless basics of sound nutrition into everyday life. Understanding that each individual has unique genetic tendencies, tastes and needs differing amounts of healthful foods and nutrients to cope with our fast-paced and stress-filled world, I do not subscribe to a “one size fits all” approach to nutrition. Rather, I incorporate your individual preferences along with therapies from many traditional diets, but all rooted in whole foods. In doing so, I can remove the stumbling blocks to good health and give you the tools you need to truly care for yourself and your family.
