About Anne Buzzelli

I'm a Registered Dietitian with a private nutrition practice Charlottesville, 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. Beyond addressing food, I can suggest high quality supplements to super-charge healing, as well as order laboratory tests to sleuth out the causes of a health issue. I also offer Neurofeedback, which is an FDA-approved form of stress relief.

Teasing out Food Sensitivities



Today we have conveniences that are almost ridiculous. Pineapples in November? Strawberries all year round? Is that really necessary? More importantly, is that healthy? A couple thoughts about Eating Locally I heard a story once that I’ve had trouble confirming. I’m pretty sure it’s true, but let’s just call it an allegory: Once in […]

The importance of being earnest about eating locally


Ordering genetic testing is ultimately your call, but Federal Laws are in place to protect you. (Laws may have changed since this post was published!) The PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) prohibits use of genetic information by insurance companies (for example for determining rates) or employers. GINA (Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008) […]
