Functional Nutritionist Philadelphia

RACHEL HERSHBERGER, CNS, LDN 

Rachel's Story

Rachel is a Functional Nutritionist, Certified Nutrition Specialist, Nutrition Specialist for Chronic Diseases, &  Integrative Health Coach. Rachel offers a fully integrative approach  that honors the individual- developing a unique plan based on her professional knowledge and your specific physiological and personal needs.   

"My work with nutrition has been shaped by my own experiences and the experiences of the people I love. Suffering with IBS and hypoglycemia in my youth, I was driven to find the underlying mechanisms causing my ill-health. I knew, deep down, that the answer was within my own physiology. If I could figure out what was out of balance, I could change things.

Every one of my specializations has developed from a desire to help someone in my life- client, friend or family member. To me, there is no greater honor than contributing to another’s wellbeing. "
