Hello. My name is Sarah Volling and love of nutrition started with my first food guide pyramid project in grade school. I instantly was captivated by food, nutrition, and how it can impact our health for the better or worse. I began my career teaching these nutrition principles to middle and high school students. I later went back to study dietetics and completed my bachelors in dietetics with a masters in mutli-disciplinary health communications to become an expert in nutrition. Currently I am working to expand my knowledge as a functional/integrative dietitian, working towards my functional medicine nutritionist certification and have recently completed extensive training to become a certified gastrointestinal nutritionist.
Both in my professional workplace as a dietitian and within my own family, I saw struggles with health issues despite a good diet and active lifestyle. Labs were deemed normal by conventional standards and all other tests would come back with no clinical findings. As I came across more and more of these people, I knew there had to be more to the story and this is what motivates me everyday. Giving patients hope and a practical path forward to better health, utilizing nutrition, even when conventional medicine says everything looks normal!
