About Anne Buzzelli

I'm a Registered Dietitian with a private nutrition practice in beautiful & historic Staunton, Virginia. My focus is on optimizing my clients' health using a drug we ingest every day: FOOD! Real, unadulterated, local, compassionately-raised food. I take a Functional Nutrition approach, which seeks the root cause rather than focusing on symptoms. I can suggest supplements to super-charge healing, as well as order laboratory tests to sleuth out the causes of a health issue. My favorite tests are: SpectraCell's Nutrient Deficiency test, Great Plain's Organic Acids Test (OAT) and GeneVive's genetic test (hyper-personal DNA assay that optimizes food choice and directs exercise style). I also offer Neurofeedback, which is an FDA-approved form of stress relief. Want to permanently upgrade your brain to experience less stress, which causes inflammation, which causes/contributes to EVERYTHING? Get more info at www.StauntonNeurofeedback.com.

That confetti scattered all around my feet is not confetti at all, it’s balls of tissues stuck glued together with buckets of my yellow snot. […]
