Ultimate Healing Through Nutrition

Valerie Warren

Valerie Warren, BS, NTP, NRT, is a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who firmly holds her clients’ ultimate health as her first priority. Her goal is to educate all of her clients on what is and is not healthy for them so they can balance and heal their bodies, live happy healthy lives, and pass those lessons on to their children.

In addition to her 125 classroom-hour nutritional therapy certification, Valerie holds a B.S. in exercise physiology (exercise science) and has logged over 250 hours engaging related continuing educational classes and self-taught studies.

Valerie began exploring alternatives to conventional western medicine by setting out on a journey to heal her own body. Though a “healthy” long distance runner, she had multiple complaints: digestive trouble and irritable bowel syndrome, body aches. Her resting heart rate was also alarmingly low: only 30 beats per minute. One after another, six doctors told her that she was fine. One prescribed a steroid cream to mask her symptoms. The last told her that if she could find out what was wrong with her, she was smarter than he (and charged her $684 for that helpful bit of news). After countless hours of study Valerie finally found the root cause of her heart problem: a heart virus which she eradicated over time with nutritional therapy.

“I had about every symptom on the list,” she recounts. “When clients come to see me I pretty much know what they’re going through.” Valerie is a proponent of creating a strong basic nutritional foundation, which addresses the root of the health concern instead of treating the symptom. “Doctors have the tools to shut off the symptoms right away, which makes clients happy,” she says, “but most of them ignore a lot of basic treatment modalities that would solve the entire problem and eliminate the need to prescribe medicine.”

Valerie’s methods include nutritional response testing, brain nutrition, Body Points, ionic footbaths for detoxification, and recommendations for nutritional supplementation. Valerie stocks a range of whole food supplements available only to health care professionals as well as other exclusive cutting edge health solutions. She tirelessly pursues additional training and is constantly searching out new information that will be beneficial to her clients’ health. Valerie rounds out a repertoire of healing practices and offerings with her no-holds-barred, tell-it-like-it-is, straight-to-the-point nutritional counseling that penetrates the fog of conflicting health information we hear every day.

Valerie treats men, women, and children of all backgrounds and health conditions, from the stay-at-home mom to the extreme high-tech professional. Her office is located minutes from Portland, Beaverton, and Hillsboro in Forest Grove, OR.
