I am Nikki Yelton, Functional Medicine Dietician. I am extremely excited to be a part of Nutrition Treatment Center’s team of experts. I feel privileged to be working alongside Dr. Tom Bilella and his Clinical Support Team.
Our collective mission is to help you live your healthiest life through functional medicine and personalized nutrition. I firmly believe the food we consume and our lifestyle is directly linked to our state of physical and mental well-being.
My discovery of Functional Medicine was not something that I had planned, but it wasn’t by accident either. While in undergraduate school perusing my dream to become a teacher, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition (Celiac Disease). I soon realized that the only true management of this condition and it’s symptoms had everything to do with the food I consume and nutrients I absorb. During this time I discovered the importance of supporting my digestive tract and gut health as an essential component to my healing.
As I watched my mind and body transform, I realized that food became my medicine. Before long I was back to being myself again. I discovered how incredible our bodies are when we choose to honor and nourish it properly.
After my personal transformation and healing, I decided to dedicate my life and studies to helping as many people as possible live a healthier, more productive life through Functional Medicine.
At Nutrition Treatment Center, I want to help you reach your fullest potential through personalized Functional Medicine and nutrition programs. Our unique programs typically focus on vitamin and mineral assessment, food sensitivity testing, digestive health screening, with an emphasis on intestinal permeability and gut health.
I look forward helping you to achieve your health and wellness goals.
