Our Nutrition Philosophy

We believe in going for organic whenever possible, filling your plate with every color of the rainbow. But health goes beyond that. Food as fuel should be customized to an individual’s needs, genetics, and overall goals. With this in mind, our San Diego health and wellness spa takes a functional and personalized approach to nutrition.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine takes a systems biology approach to an individual's overall well-being, addressing the root causes of common health concerns like gut issues, slow metabolism, and poor sleep. Focus is placed on optimal health for the whole person - mind, body, and spirit - with the strategic use of supplement recommendations and personalized lifestyle choices.
