If you care about your health and longevity, and would rather prevent than treat disease, you’ve come to the right place! Meet Dr. Schulman, medical nutrition therapist, certified lactation educator, and wellness expert.
Welcome! I am a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) with advanced training in health behavior, psychology, public health, and lactation and have discovered that optimal health and healing only happens from the “core” (or within) when we address: (1) behavior + (2) mind + (3) nutrition. I am now offering individual, couples, and group “core” nutrition therapy. Retreats and corporate wellness are coming soon!
Why I became a nutrition and wellness expert…
Thirty years ago, my step-father became gravely ill from complications resulting from type 2 diabetes, that were completely preventable. The doctors were undereducated about nutrition and I began to study this issue. (Refer to: Schulman JA, Rienzo BA. The importance of physicians’ nutrition literacy in the management of diabetes mellitus. Med Educ Online, 2001;6:6.)
Today, there is more of an awareness of the importance of nutrition education among physicians, but registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) continue to be the leading experts. People that call themselves “nutritionists” have little or no training and are generally motivated to sell nutrition products or programs that are not grounded in science. Everyone deserves the benefit of working with a qualified RDN.
