Christine Reeley

Christine Reeley

Christine received her training in health coaching at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). The IIN is the only nutrition school that integrates many different dietary theories and knowledge of traditional philosophies such as the USDA food pyramid, the glycemic index, the Zone, and raw foods.

Christine learned about IIN while pursuing a more holistic solution for treating an adult-onset autoimmune disease. After growing frustrated with more than four years of struggling with traditional western medicine treatments alone, Christine felt that she needed to take more control of her own body. With the help of her integrative practitioners, she has been able to work with her conventional doctors to find a better balance between medication and more natural methods of managing her condition through diet and other lifestyle changes.

This journey led Christine to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She immediately knew that she had to attend. Christine wants to help others in the same way she and her family have been helped. She strives to make huge differences in the lives of people in search of better answers for themselves and their families. She has always enjoyed cooking and loves to show people how easy healthful cooking can be.

Christine specializes in guiding participants in incorporating more whole foods into their diets through tasty and simple recipes. She demonstrates how recipes can be adjusted to suit personal tastes or dietary needs (i.e.: as gluten free, dairy free, etc.) Her goal is to demonstrate that healthy eating can be fun and satisfying and at the same time transform each family’s eating patterns to include healthful, rejuvenating whole foods that can create a strong foundation upon which the entire family can flourish.

Christine is honored to be a guide on a journey to a healthier, energizing life through whole foods.

Lara Latttman

Using food as medicine, she considers supplements exactly that, a supplement to a great diet. She recognizes that every person is different and may need different things from their diet. Her training has exposed her to many dietary programs both conventional and traditional. Lara guides her clients toward a more balanced way of living, incorporating movement and rest, which along with good nutrition are the building blocks of a healthy lifestyle. She sees people one-on-one for individual counseling and enjoys sharing her knowledge with many through nutrition classes.  She feels that group classes are a great way to teach healthy principles in an accessible way, and individual sessions are necessary to dig deeper into stubborn symptoms.

She is a Licensed Dietitian-Nutritionist by the state of Maryland. Before finding her path in wellness, Lara graduated from University of Massachusetts with a BA in Classics.
