Meet Yen

Finding a dietitian who is credentialed is not the only criteria worth looking into. Work with a dietitian who you connect with on more than a professional level. Someone who truly cares about your health and long-term success. Someone who will never judge you and is here to only support, motivate, and inspire you to live the healthy life you've always deserved.

WHO SHE IS:

Yen Ngo MS, RDN, CDN is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who helps her patients optimize their overall health and wellness. She is known for her passion to help those struggling with gastrointestinal, hormonal, and autoimmune conditions. When she's not working with her patients, she is in the kitchen cooking up her next meal, spending time with family and friends, or working on her Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner (IFNCP) certification. 

WHAT SHE DOES:

Her approach to nutrition is functional and integrative. Functional meaning she is dedicated to finding the root cause of illness in her patients while also managing their symptoms with food and other lifestyle factors.

Integrative, meaning using both conventional and holistic treatments in her practice, addressing more than just nutrition and exercise such as gut health, stress levels, sleep hygiene, and environmental factors that can impact health.

WHO SHE HELPS:

Those who:

  • Have been struggling with a chronic health condition that have not found relief from conventional treatments.

  • Are confused on conflicting nutrition advice and don't know where to start.

  • Need help managing an existing health condition through therapeutic diets.

  • Have trouble losing weight despite healthy diet and exercise.

HOW SHE DOES IT:

  • Identifying and managing underlying or known health conditions.

  • Correcting gut and hormone imbalances.

  • Educating on the basics of nutrition.

  • Providing personalized meal plans based on dietary preferences and restrictions.

  • Improving the relationship with food into a positive and healthy one. 

WHAT MAKES HER DIFFERENT:

Think of her as your personal private health investigator! If you've been struggling with the same health condition or experiencing the same symptoms for several months and years, she will help uncover the root cause so you can start feeling your best once and for all.

WHY SHE DOES IT:

Her mission is to advocate that the foods we eat, beverages we drink, products we put on our bodies, the environment that we live in, what we come into contact with daily, how well we sleep, how we manage our stress etc. is VITAL to our long-term health. Conventional medicine providers are really great at treating symptoms, but were not trained and do not have the time to help their patients optimize their health and that's where she comes in- To fill in the blanks, pull everything together, and to make sense of how your lifestyle can affect your health, so you no longer have to be at 'war' with your body.
