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.

There are many aspects related to detoxification, one of which is your HLA haplotype. If your DNA is flawed in certain genes, you may be less able to detoxify and more susceptible to certain triggers, such as mold and Lyme bacteria and confections. If you’re curious, you can test for these genes, but a better first step […]
