Meet Cathy Hains, MSN, RDN, CLT, CPT
Are you looking for ways to maintain a healthy weight for life?
Are you tired of yo-yo dieting, fads and medications that have saturated the media, only to dazzle the public, drain pocketbooks, work great for a while, but then fail to keep people healthy over the long-haul?
Maybe you know a lot about nutrition and weight loss, but the pounds and symptoms still persist. You might be concerned about long-term effects of medications or fad diets - You should be!
Perhaps you are here to look for more natural remedies to bothersome symptoms, blood markers and lab values, wanting to avoid your family history of disease and medications and surgeries, and want to use the power of nutrition and lifestyle change instead.
When it comes down to it, you are the most intimately knowledgeable of your own life and health. But maybe you realize you may need some help. If so, we're so glad you are visiting our page!
Registered-Dietitian Cathy Hains, MS, RDN, CLT, NASM-CPT of Lighthouse Nutrition and Wellness can help you come out of the chaos and confusion. With Cathy, you don't just lose weight - You do it with Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) in a healthful way, to increase your quality of life and life span as well!

For those concerned about Covid-19 exposure:
Update as of Jan 2023- While we would love to see the pandemic gone, it is not totally behind us yet. However, cases have declined and we have lessened up on the strictness of our policies. We apply basic common sense of having hand sanitizer, sink and soap available to our clients, and we are still wearing masks and request you do the same in our office. Read more here about our original Covid-19 Safety Policies which all may return if another wave occurs. As a precaution during flu season, Cathy Hains is providing multiple slots of distance/telehealth services via private phone/video call to accommodate those still concerned. Insurance plans often will cover this service - Please check with your plan, or give us a call.
"In April of 2018 I was 180 pounds 57 years old and experiencing fatigue, water retention, stiffness in joints especially feet and back, kind of hard getting into and out of the car, feeling like I’m older than I was. I read Cathy Hains's article in Marlene’s Sound Outlook about the MRT food sensitivities testing, read up on it and decided it could be useful information that would help me.
Study results flip flop all the time, partially because they don't account for genetic differences in each individual in the cohort. Cathy has searched high and low for the best genetic nutrition test and has found Nutrigenomix® to be one she can trust.
Get to the bottom of food sensitivities. Got migraines, IBS, joint pain, inflammation? There's no need for a blind elimination diet when you can finally pinpoint triggers. This is not the less reliable IgG testing, but rather a more much accurate food intolerance testing (not allergy testing).
There are numerous ways to lose weight. But which ones work long-term while everyone else is regaining the weight and getting ill? Cathy stays on top of the field with the latest of evidence-based, healthy ways to lose weight with a comprehensive, integrative-functional methodology.
Whether you need a few visits to tweak your already-great work, or, a long-term weight loss plan with support, Cathy works with you in an integrative-functional, whole-person approach and with other health professionals as well when needed, to get you to better health.
One of Cathy's many tools is the ability to help clients manage their weight while helping them get healthy too. They can message Cathy privately in a secure setting. Can't come in to the office? No problem!
Seriously - Food is medicine.
Are you trying to avoid prescription medications? Bring your lab work and Cathy will help you avoid them with good nutrition. Reduce symptoms of diet-related conditions such as heart disease, pre-diabetes and gastrointestinal ailments.
Cathy Hains wants to be your dietitian-nutritionist and faithful health advocate in the Gig Harbor, Key Peninsula, Tacoma areas of the South Sound.
