July 20, 2019

Ahna Crum - Part 1

Today I'll be talking with licensed dietician Ahna Crum about the role that nutrition plays in the development of MS as well as how it can assist in reversing or managing your symptoms.

Ahna, who's certified in integrative and functional medical nutrition therapy, holds a masters in dietetics and is currently working on her 2nd master's in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine.

Her involvement in the integrative medicine movement goes beyond the fundamentals of macronutrients, micronutrients, and energy expenditure and focuses on the full health picture of each individual.

Her goal as a practitioner Is to heal the whole person physically, mentally and emotionally through food, vitamins dietary and/or herbal supplements and other complementary evidence-based treatments as a way to heal the body and prevent disease.

Through nutritional immunorestoration, Ahna works to restore health and hope to anyone suffering from autoimmune-based ailments.

Her clinical experience coupled with her own personal experience as an MS patient gives her the perspective of a practitioner but the heart of a patient.

Ahna's objective is to use targeted nutrition strategies to reverse or manage symptoms and restore health hope and vitality to her patients.
