Suanne is not only passionate about good nutrition; she passes that enthusiasm along to others. A good healthcare provider must also be a good teacher, and that describes Suanne. She wisely avoids fads and miracle cures while counseling that we have to listen to what our own bodies are telling us. Suanne backs up her recommendations with sound science and doesn’t rely on the same old advice that has caused so many to develop long-term health problems. We are what we eat, and Suanne helps people learn to eat right!
