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.
