Whitney Parkinson
RDN, MPH

REGISTERED DIETITIAN NUTRITIONIST

Whitney’s passion for nutrition began with her own health journey. Diagnosed at a young age with a rare autoimmune disease, Whitney began her own research into functional nutrition, feeling intuitively that there was a more holistic solution for her health issues. Changing the way she viewed food and realizing the connection between diet and health, Whitney was able to put her autoimmune disease into remission.

Passionate about gut health and healing, Whitney uses her training in nutritional sciences to treat disease through food, targeted supplements and lifestyle therapies. Throughout her studies, Whitney has found that balancing the gut microbiota can positively impact a myriad of diseases, including autoimmune conditions, migraines, IBS and even anxiety and depression.

Actively listening to each patient’s unique health history helps Whitney to create personalized care-plans that incorporate a combination of diet and lifestyle changes, perfect for each person’s individual needs. Whitney’s main goal is to address the root cause of imbalances in the body, in order to help improve vitality, so people can feel better while living longer.

When not adventuring outdoors or at a coffee shop studying, Whitney may be meditating, at a barre class or playing her new ukulele. Whitney loves to travel and experience new cultures. Two of her favorite places to travel are Mexico and Colombia, where she loves to speak Spanish, explore and eat!
