1. Proton Pump Inhibitors should be prescribed no more than three 14-day treatments in one year (I was on them for 13 years).
2. Plant-based diets, raw sea vegetables such as spirulina and chlorella, and apple cider vinegar can help alleviate ovarian cysts and acne.
3. Migraine medications can cause dizziness and exhaustion.
In short, I realized these medications were making me sick. So instead of taking more pills, I had another clinician assess my blood work for nutrient deficiencies and decided to heal my gut by changing my diet.
Dr. Cynthia Barrett, PT, DPT, CSCS, CNS is Founder and CEO of Wellness Couture, LLC, which provides targeted testing and evaluation as the foundation for the next level of health, nutrition and fitness based on each client’s unique microbiota and chemical makeup.
Dr. Barrett has a deep passion for health and wellness, having founded Wellness Couture after realizing conventional medicine can fail to improve chronic health ailments because it often ignores the unique aspects of an individual’s chemical makeup.
Wellness Couture’s results indicate many individuals’ chronic health issues are rooted in their bodies’ sensitivities and nutrient deficiencies.
Dr. Barrett initially found this to be true in her own life healing herself from a number of chronic health ailments.
Since then, Dr. Barrett has seen dramatic improvements in clients of all ages by first evaluating each individual’s unique physiology with the most advanced medical testing, and then developing a tailored program of health and nutrition that leverages those unique characteristics into results.
Her success tailoring custom-made wellness programs for clients led her to partner with Cenegenics NYC on Wall Street, where she leads the Advanced Food and Nutrient Timing Program.
A lifelong runner having competed collegiately in track & field, Dr. Barrett is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and is a Group Fitness Instructor at Equinox in New York City.
She is one of the most popular instructors of Equinox’s “Signature” program, Precision Running, at Equinox Wall Street, Flatiron and Gramercy locations, and has appeared in several television news segments about the program.
Dr. Barrett is a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) holding a Pre/Post Natal Certification.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in Community Health Education from Hunter College and obtained her Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) from New York University.
When the body is fed properly, the mind is fed and the soul is at peace. Like Hippocrates states, “Let food be thy medicine.”
When we are well, our mind, body and soul can shine.
Every cell in our body requires proper nutrition. If we feed our cells with junk – not only bad food but also bad thoughts – we accumulate more non-beneficial bacteria and negative energy. If we feed our cells with fruits and vegetables, and plenty of water, along with plenty of love and kindness, we see our healthy cells shine from inside out!
The latest studies show how important it is to understand our own individual microbiomes. The bacteria in our gut plays a major role in the function of our body and our brain. Healthy gut = healthy brain. Understanding this connection – and understanding ourselves – can heal us all on so many levels.
