This has undoubtedly been a very stressfull but exciting week. When I attended the ISNN in Brazil last November, I met this amazing Dietitian who really has taken dietetics to a new and higher level. We attended all the lectures together and very quickly decided to do something together. The end result is my interview this week which essentially aims to introduce practitioners to how the practice of Dietetics is evolving both from a scientific point of view but also from a consumer demand standpoint.
So who is Donna Sigmond, MS, RD, LAc, Dipl OM, CLT, FAAFM, ABAAHP??
Donna holds a Master of Science degree in Traditional Chinese medicine and a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition. She is a registered dietitian and is nationally board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM.). Donna is an Advanced Fellow and Board Certified in Anti-aging, Regenerative, and Functional Medicine. Her rich educational background is solidified by her experience as a Research Bionutritionist with The University of Colorado, Boulder; interning with North Austin Medical Center in oncology, cardiology and the renal wards; and in traditional healthcare working in Beijing, China in 2002 and 2004. Currently, Donna is the owner and a practitioner of East West Wellness in Louisville Colorado where she specializes in gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, auto-immune, food sensitivity, man and women’s issues to obtain whole body balance in her patients.
This interview is ideal for healthcare professionals who;
- Are interested in Functional nutrition
- Are curious about how one practitioner managed to blend Eastern and Western science and practice
- How Nutrigenomics fits into the larger picture of attaining optimal health
- Are looking to expand their clinical practice by expanding their toolbox
- How targetted supplementation can contribute to health
Understanding how a fellow practitioner uses the available science in such a unique way has certainly opened my eyes as I have had virtually nil exposure to Oriental Medicine.
As consumers demand a more personal, preventative approach to their health without resorting to medication, the healthcare model is changing slowly.
