Melanie Nicsinger first became fascinated with integrative medicine over 15 years ago when she was diagnosed with hypoglycemia. Conventional doctors told her she would just have to learn to live with the symptoms, but Melanie didn't accept that. Using the research skills she developed as a professional writer, she began an investigation that led her to deeply understand how food can nourish and heal the body.
Time and time again, Melanie returned to the integrative model of care as her family suffered through a series of health challenges that included allergies, heart attacks and cancer. Each time, her research would reveal the healing properties of nutrient-dense foods, stress reduction and exercise. As her knowledge base grew, she kept asking herself, why aren’t these things more well known?
Because of that, Melanie made it her mission to help others find their path to wellness by helping them create a lifestyle foundation that frees their bodies from the ailments that limit their lives. Through a process of investigation and reflection, she believes our bodies will give us the answers if we listen to its messages.
In 2010, Melanie began her journey toward becoming a Certified Holistic Nutritionist with specialized certifications in nutrition for cancer and cardiovascular health. A perpetual student, she is working toward becoming an Integrative Health Practitioner through the University of Arizona’s Center for Integrative Medicine. Melanie is also a Registered Yoga Teacher.
In her free time, Melanie loves to read and practice yoga. Laughter is a cornerstone of her life, and she enjoys nothing more than spending time with family and friends.
