"Our body can handle what comes its way. There is no need to detox." Or is there? In this webinar, Naomi May, MS, RDN, LD will guide you through the body’s "natural" detoxification system and discuss the role of the RDN in helping clients conduct a healthy detox.

  • Review the body’s 3 phases of detoxification.
  • Discuss nutritional support for an individual showing symptoms of body burden.

About the speaker

Naomi has an extensive background in nutritional solutions for chronic health concerns including heart disease, pre-diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Insulin Resistance, Thyroid Disorders, Gastrointestinal Disorders, and pre-natal wellness. She provides personalized nutrition solutions to reduce, eliminate, or simply prevent taking more medication. Symptoms such as high cholesterol, adrenal fatigue, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, etc. are merely the bodies way of communicating that something needs to change and not a cry for more medication. She focuses on helping clients identify the root causes of their symptoms and developing a tailored plan to help promote healing in their body.

Growing up on a farm and her own experience with aggravating symptoms has given her a unique perspective on food, nutrition, and health. She has been pursuing her passion to learn more about the power of food in healing numerous health conditions for over 10 years. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics from the University of Wisconsin-Stout and a Master of Science degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine through the University of Western States. She continues to further her knowledge through additional seminars.
