Learn about a Cincinnati startup that uses Nutrigenomics (yes, we explain what that is, too) to create an individualized nutrition plan just for you.
Do you want to experience a health startup that can help you anywhere in the Cincinnati and Dayton? My Nutrition and Me LLC is a startup, whose home is in Cincinnati. “We are flexible to meet the client’s appointment needs anywhere in the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton areas,” Karolin Saweres, Founder and CEO of My Nutrition and Me. “We also use chat platforms over video conference, phone or through email.” Saweres is the sole employee of the startup and meets with people of all ages.
Saweres strongly believes in having a diet that is personalized. “I partner with the client to develop a personalized nutritional plan that will enable them to achieve a healthy balanced diet, optimize their nutritional status and prevent, delay, and manage diseases and conditions,” she says. “Our mission is to empower an individual to reach their wellness goals through evidence-based food and nutrition science.”
There are a variety of different services that are offered at My Nutrition and Me. These services are one-on-one consultations, weight management (individual or group classes), nutrition seminars/presentations, grocery store tours, cooking demonstrations, meal plans and recipes. “Our services also include non-invasive genetic testing to provide comprehensive, reliable, genomic information with the ultimate goal of improving health through personalized nutrition,” she explains.
My Nutrition and Me is important for the community. “Generalized diets don’t work. Individuals respond differently to food intake. Personalized nutrition coaching and education is key to achieving individual goals,” Saweres says. “We implement evidence-based practice, along with professional judgment, in order to achieve optimum nutrition and wellness outcomes.”
The startup is unique because it involves a new scientific discipline called Nutrigenomics, which “uses modern genomics technology to study the relationship between genes, nutrition, and health. It has long been apparent that some people respond differently from others to certain foods,” she says. “For example, individuals with lactose intolerance experience gastrointestinal discomfort after consuming certain dairy products, while other individuals can consume dairy with no problems. Nutrigenomics allows us to understand how our genes affect the way we respond to the foods, beverages, and supplements we consume.”
In 2017, Saweres is going to be sharing more health tips, more blogging, and more recipes using fresh ingredients, a monthly newsletter, and there’s a new Weight Management class coming in the Fall of 2017.
