    Chelsea Weisel graduated from the Master Nutrition Therapy program in the spring of 2014. Following graduation, Chelsea started a private practice in Denver working with young adults struggling with digestive health. Although she enjoyed working with clients one-on-one, Chelsea loved to teach group classes, and wanted to find ways in which she could share her knowledge with the public in a creative manner. Chelsea found rewarding work at Metro Caring Hunger Relief Center in Denver, CO, where she teaches weekly cooking classes and “Food for Thought” nutrition classes. The handouts and presentations that she initially developed during her internship at Metro Caring are now used for the curriculum of nutrition education at the center. Chelsea expanded her own business in April 2016 by developing a new line of greeting cards with her original paintings of fruits and vegetables on the front, and corresponding holistic recipes on the back of each card. Chelsea hopes that the greeting cards will encourage people to cook real food, and enjoy the beauty and perfection of local produce and the nutrients that they provide. You can find more information about Chelsea and the greeting cards at www.honeybwell.com.

    Questions & Answers

    • What inspired you to work with Cancer Patients?
      Denise became interested in supporting cancer patients through food and nutrition when her mom was first diagnosed with a rare form of uterine cancer. Her desire to help the cancer community was further intensified when 5 family members were diagnosed with cancer within a very short 18 month period of time. She found it rather shocking and was a bit dumbfounded when she heard and saw the lacking, and sometimes alarming, nutritional recommendations that were still being given in today's technologically advanced world. It was quite obvious there was a gaping hole in nutritional support for cancer treatment and survivorship that needed to be fulfilled which she was eager to take on.
    • What is your mission, message, or business?
      Denise’s mission is to educate, inspire, and lead as many people as possible to optimal health and happiness, so they can thrive once again by feeding their bodies with nature’s medicine, real whole foods. The message Denise stresses with her clients, and society in general, is that food is information that feeds every single cell in your body.
    • What upcoming news or developments can we look forward to?
      Denise is excited to be launching her new, updated website this month that will allow her to post weekly blogs, videos, and more. She will also be increasing her social media presence at the same time to reach more cancer patients and survivors. In May, Denise is eager to further her continuing education and expertise in the field of nutrition and cancer by enrolling in the new Board Certified Oncology Nutrition Therapy Program at the Nutrition Therapy Institute.

    Tom Fabian, May, 2016

    Tom’s primary focus is on providing educational programs and resources on advanced topics for functional nutritionists and other functional health practitioners, although he does have a small nutrition consulting practice on the side that is focused on healthy aging. His background was in biomedical research, studying the genetics and gene expression changes involved in the aging process. When Tom decided that he wanted to change directions and pursue a career in natural health, he realized that nutrition was key to any career direction in this field. But his education up to that point did not include in-depth nutrition training, so he decided to pursue a certification as a Nutrition Therapist through NTI, as well as via a number of post-certification continuing education programs in functional medicine. It has been very rewarding for Tom to be able combine a background in science with a more recent education in functional nutrition to help meet the needs of practitioners & clients within his areas of expertise (the microbiome, the gut-brain-immune axis, metabolic regulation, and healthy aging). Tom’s current educational programs are available at MicrobiomeMastery.com.
