Many of you have had the pleasure of working with EC Synkowski in the Strongman Clinics. You may not know that EC is currently finishing up her masters in Human Nutrition & Functional Medicine, worked for more than 10 years for CrossFit, Inc., on their seminar staff including course materials regarding nutrition.

The exciting news is that EC is launching her practice – OptimizeMe Nutrition – right here within the walls of CrossFit Roots!

The focus of EC’s practice is providing nutrition support for specific health concerns as opposed to general food planning and food coaching. Her appointment-based services will help individuals address skin issues, hormonal imbalances, autoimmunity, gastrointestinal issues, as well as general wellness and prevention goals.

On a personal note, both my daughter Harriet and I have worked with EC to address various concerns including celiac recovery to the elimination of rosacea – all with great results. I also worked with EC for seven years at CrossFit Inc. There’s no other person I’d want to work with in conjunction with medical professionals and my personal nutrition and health goals.

A Note from EC.

I am thrilled to offer functional medicine nutrition consulting as OptimizeMe Nutrition to the CrossFit Roots community and beyond. Functional medicine nutrition consulting uses nutrition and lifestyle inventions to optimize health.

Instead of considering isolated truths, it understands the interconnectedness between dietary intake, assimilation of those nutrients, the physiology that controls nutrient availability and lifestyle factors, which all have significant influence. Functional medicine nutrition is an engineer’s approach to nutrition: critical analysis and problem-solving of whole-systems to bring a system (you!) to its highest capacity.

The mission of OptimizeMe is to achieve optimal health in the context of the client’s goals and lifestyle. If there were such a thing as a perfect nutrition plan, it would account for the client’s lifestyle and beliefs just as much proper nutrient intake and quantity metrics. Each situation will have unique needs and considerations.

I work with a wide range of clients: those just starting to incorporate better nutrition to those who want nutritional support for specific conditions. Maybe you are a client who already eats Paleo, you exercise, and you still have eczema. Maybe you are gluten-free, and you still have IBS-like-symptoms. Maybe after a few courses of antibiotics, you have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. There are nutritional options for each of these and many others.

If you are curious as to whether OptimizeMe can help you, I am offering free 15-minute calls to discuss your concerns. I am currently accepting 10 new clients – click here for more information and to schedule. I am looking forward to working with you!
