A Warm Welcome!

Thank you for stopping by!

Are you tired of yo-yo dieting and fads that have saturated the media, only to dazzle the public, drain pocketbooks, and then not work long-term? 

Do you get enamored by apps and other technology, and glitzy program packaging of major chain weight loss companies that may help for a while, but ultimately make you feel like just one of their millions of customers?

Do you have conditions that you know are related to something (or something missing)  in your diet and lifestyle? And are you wanting to reduce or eliminate your prescription medications? 

 Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) at Lighthouse Nutrition and Wellness can help you with:


High cholesterol

Common cardiovascular conditions
Hypertension (high blood pressure)


Pre-diabetes, diabetes
Migraines, headaches


Attention deficit disorder ADHD

Diarrhea and/or constipation

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Eating disorders


Interstitial Cystitis


Conditions involving inflammation such as arthritis

Other nutrition-related conditions on a screened, case-by-case basis

If you want a truly personalized touch and a real  person to help you and you're ready to get serious, and you would like a nutrition expert, partner and advocate to team up with you to treat nutrition-related ailments, prevent disease via whole-body and lifestyle factors, then you are in right place! 

Many insurance plans accepted

Lighthouse Nutrition and Wellness has been improving the health of patients of all ages since 2010. Please check out our website and give us a call today!

Great results seldom happen with just a few visits. Here's what our dedicated clients are saying:
