Who We Are

“When you give the body what it needs, nature will do the rest” – 2020

As pioneers in restoring thyroid and metabolic health, we have taken “food as medicine” to the next level. With over 20 years of research and experience we have unlocked the secret to what defines a healthy, healing and sustainable diet. You. More specifically your ability to metabolize and process not only the food you eat but the environment you live, into energy – your body’s most basic and fundamental need.

Restoration Thyroid Nutrition (RTN) is a method designed to teach you how to use your food with strategy and intention to unravel the long-term effects chronic stress has had on the body while building a solid foundation for the body to heal and ultimately reach optimal thyroid health.

The patterns of healing we have observed over the last 12 years of applying the principles of the RTN Method have provided us with the greatest knowledge and experience—proving even more powerful than our combined years of research and study in nutrition.

How We Got Here

 Interestingly enough, our first date was at the Body’s Exhibit! We have always shared a passion and deep respect for the wholeness of the human body. This passion has propelled our journey into metabolic health and cellular energy production, with an emphasis on thyroid health. Thyroid hormone is a powerhouse hormone required by every single one of the body’s trillion cells, and plays a fundamental role in energy production.

Following many years of working closely with clients, we began to recognize a common trend – people were coming to us with binders full of lab work while on 20+ supplements and thousands of dollars in debt. They were confused, exhausted, frustrated, scared and skeptical (and rightfully so!). Here we had all this information, yet we had none because nothing was telling us why.

Treatment protocols based on labs and supplements were focused solely on imbalances and symptoms with hardly any consideration for the individual and their environment (both physical and emotional).

At the same time, we had started delving more into this concept of cellular energy and its place in human disease. Come to find it is the backbone of our health. Almost 99% of our clientele presented with chronic energy deficiencies caused by over stressed adrenal glands, altered thyroid function and little to no resiliency and locked in an adaptive and vicious stress response. A state no-body can truly heal.

From this point forward, the more time we got to spend with our clients, the more we could not ignore or overlook how relevant each person’s “story”, from conception to this present moment is to their healing process. Your story matters, however you experience it—consciously or unconsciously. It plays a defining role in how you navigate the world, which plays a defining role in how you experience your health.

The RTN method is much more than just nutrition, it is an opportunity to come into a deeper relationship and understanding of your body, how it works and how it is affected by the environment. This is your power.

Body Response Awareness 

“If you want to truly understand something, try to change it.”– Kurt Lewin

The RTN Method takes you through a process designed to help increase your level of awareness. In this awareness is the opportunity to make the changes you need, to create the environment for your body to heal.

Using simple and cheap, real-time daily assessments you learn to very effectively identify the state of your system. With these assessments, we are able to help you understand more deeply what is happening in your body so you are able to make sense of how you feel. The more clarity you have on what is happening in your body, and even more importantly what is causing it, the more opportunity there is to create an environment that supports both your physical and emotional needs.

The RTN Method is all about strategy and intention with the primary objective always being to optimize the process of fueling the body with food. As a result, you significantly reduce internal and external stresses, know exactly how to replenish and nourish your body, increase energy and create stability and balance in your nervous system.
