Why Brooklyn Wellness?

We offer a personalized style of achieving wellness that approaches chronic health conditions with a focus on finding the core imbalances or underlying causes rather than just treating or managing the symptoms. After completing our initial  assessment, we will partner with you to craft a customized plan that will help you achieve – and sustain – your personal wellness goals.

What Makes Us Different From Other Nutrition Clinics?

At Brooklyn Wellness, we approach chronic health issues such as: auto-immune diseases, gastrointestinal disorders and hormone imbalances with the premise that our body has the innate ability to heal itself.  By utilizing functional medicine principles, we partner with you to identify and remove triggers, decrease inflammation, restore the metabolic pathways and work to repair damaged systems through targeted nutrient therapies and/or lifestyle changes.

Our Unique Approach to Improving Your Gut Health in Brooklyn NY

Brooklyn Wellness uses a systems restoration model to empower clients through education that explores the answers to the question “Why?”  We delve into more than symptoms by critically examining digestion, hormones, lifestyle, relaxation and environmental exposures to customize a unique plan for you based on the five pillars of health: Rest, Nutrition, Activity, Stress Management and Digestion.

Our Philosophy On Functional Nutrition

Uncovering the reason why a disease manifests or why symptoms are present is the core concept and foundation of Brooklyn Wellmess.  Embracing the way our body was made to alert us to an immune response is a vital component to achieving a resolution and restoration of health.  At the core of our philosophy is the understanding that our body is not broken, rather it has many ways to signal to us there is danger looming under the surface.

In Our Clients Own Words…

“Ten minutes into my introductory session at Brooklyn Wellness, I knew that I was in good hands. Ms. Larsen listened (I mean really listened), to my life story and reviewed my current health status and living conditions before coming up with my nutritional plan; which I have since followed for thirteen months now. I no longer need to use oxygen and I’ve lost 56 pounds (so far).  Thank You Brooklyn Wellness!
