rc1Welcome to Advocate for Healing.  

My name is Lynn Altieri-Need and I have one mission:

to help families find the tools they need so they can heal

You may find me discussing through podcasts, webinars and blogging:   Kids Health 101, Nutrition for Seizures, Stress Hormones and digestion as my main focuses but you’ll see by my testimonials that my training as a functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner can help with nearly any symptom or illness that plagues an individual.   After all, I don’t treat the symptoms, I support the individual.  I don’t “guess”, I “test”. Come visit with me for a complimentary 30 minute consultation and be sure to sign up for updates on the right so you can be “in the know” of the most current knowledge available.

But why?

Advocate for healing

Do I or my child feel this bad and yet the Doctors can’t find anything wrong with him?

Why do I keep taking different drugs but they are not helping?

Why am I tired all of the time?

If any of these questions seem familiar, like they do to millions of people, know you’re not alone.  Doctors are there for you when you are sick and symptomatic.  Their methods of treatment are allopathic; in that what is directly related to your symptom is what they’ll treat.  As a functional nutritionist we look at the whole body and how systems, specifically the hormone, immune, digestion, detoxification and elimination systems are functioning.  Any breakdown in these systems can result in dys-function and ultimately symptoms.

Often times these symptoms are found to be not thought to be directly related to the cause.  For example, a breakdown in digestion resulted in a gut malfunction and headaches.  Now these headaches can be addressed with an anti-inflammatory, cafeine induced medication, through the allopathic model; but what is the likelihood of that symptom returning?  Very high.  The only resolve the individual will have is knowing that there’s a pill that can help them; albeit temporarily.  Relief is necessary, but what if you could find out the why and get rid of them altogether? Keep asking why and seek to find the anwers; they will come if you look in the right places.

Be healthy and happy!
