Here is what you may want to know about me before using this website as a resource.
I am a nutritionist, working as an independent researcher and consultant to doctors and nutritionists in the Los Angeles area.
I have studied nutrition all my life, starting as a personal interest. I was a software engineer that decided at the age of 35 to go back to school to study nutrition formally and earned a Master’s degree in Nutrition Science from California Polytechnical Institute, Pomona. However, I feel that my basic training in nutrition was just a beginning, kind of like learning the letters of the alphabet and it took a lot more studying in order to put the letters together in words and phrases.
Understanding human physiology and the ways diet and supplements can affect it, is quite a puzzle. For over 15 years I have been through a great journey of learning and sometimes I feel like I have just begun getting a deep grasp of this so very complex puzzle, which we call nutrition science. We might as well call it the science of optimal life.
My passion is to contribute to the advancement of the nutrition science, which is evolving very rapidly and providing multiple modalities to support optimum human health, performance, reduce risk of disease, minimize the need for pharmaceutical interventions and optimize vitality in spite of the challenges that aging presents.
Nutrition science is very young and full of controversy. New information is released practically every day that changes the way we understand human physiology and our approaches for treating or preventing disease. Nutrition is the most fascinating field, most complex and useful to humanity and I am thrilled to be part of the human effort to piece this puzzle together and help change the way medicine, especially preventive medicine is practiced.
I currently contribute to the development of a professional line of supplements Designs For Health and nutritional protocols as well as teaching doctors and nutritionists how to incorporate nutrition in a comprehensive wellness approach. You will find many of their names in the resource sections of this website.
I hope you find the information provided by website useful for your health and wellbeing. I will do my best to keep you up to date with the most important new discoveries in the nutrition field, while giving you the resources that will help you get on the best path to optimal health.
You will be empowered with important basic knowledge about diet, nutritional supplements, nutritional testing and an array of practitioner referrals that can help you with your health needs.
To your best health
Cristiana Paul, M.S. Nutrition
