I am Susan Raatz PhD MPH RD, a professional, evidence-based nutritionist in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. I am a licensed, registered dietitian and provide confidential, individual nutrition advice to meet your personal situation and requirements, whether you are looking for weight management, to help with how and what to eat for optimal health, or a specific diet plan to manage a medical condition.
I specialize in integrative and functional medical nutrition. My approach to nutrition is that there is no “one size fits all” way to achieve wellness. I take into account the many factors that can contribute to health concerns such as personal health history, genetics, environment, and lifestyle.

Jesse’s approach to nutrition is a moderate and compassionate one, grounded in scientific evidence and with a holistic (mind, body, spirit) perspective. In her office, success is about showing up – not the size of your jeans or the number on the scale. And good health is about striking a balance without cutting out all of the foods that bring you pleasure. Though she’ll dig into the scientific literature to guide our work together, this is a collaborative effort and you’re the expert on your body. Cultivating wellness does not have to be all or nothing or “perfect.” It’s about starting where you are, doing the work and enjoying the process. Jesse excels at breaking the science of nutrition into bite-sized pieces. She welcomes all to her practice, wanting to share her food love with everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, size, shape or any other qualifier used to divide us.

As the Newbridge Health & Wellness integrative and functional dietitian, Rachel clinically sees how nutrition can impact treatment plans for patients – for better or worse.
Rachel is passionate about living and teaching healthy lifestyle, prevention, and healing to all ages. Like many, she came to functional medicine and nutrition through personal health issues. Rachel sees patients with a wide variety of diagnoses and conditions, many of which are complex chronic illnesses. See Rachel for: basic diet/nutrition review, Autism/ADHD, PANDAS/PANS, picky eating, Lyme disease, memory loss, digestive issues, autoimmune conditions, weight loss, GI (UC, Crohn’s, IBS, SIBO), overweight/obesity, food sensitivities, mold illness, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, migraine, hormones, eczema, asthma, allergies, skin issues, pre/post natal nutrition, and more. Rachel went through conventional dietetics training at Kansas State University and then pursued functional nutrition training to further understand the “why” behind dysfunctions, which helps her address them.
She has an in-depth familiarity with therapeutic diets and food chemicals including: GAPS, SCD, ketogenic, Paleo/Primal, AIP, GFCFSF, vegan/vegetarian, Mediterranean, low FODMAP, candida/mold, oxalates, histamine, salicylates – and can offer practical ways to implement them. Rachel is a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT) and has completed comprehensive training developed by a team of dietitians, physicians, immunologists, and medical business professionals with more than 100 years combined experience in treating food sensitivity related conditions. Rachel has also received extensive training in adverse food reactions, and practical application of dietary treatment for food-sensitive patients. Since introducing delayed-type food hypersensitivity testing and therapy into her private practice, she has seen first-hand how the proper identification of food and chemical triggers, followed by the implementation of a proven, customized LEAP (Lifestyle Eating and Performance) protocol can help patients reduce inflammation and recover their health.
She can also help with meal planning, recipes, picky eating tips and cooking tips. Rachel also offers a Nutrition Q&A class monthly.

I am a Licensed, Registered Dietitian (RD, LD) and a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT). Functional medicine and integrative nutrition approaches for chronic health problems are at the core of my practice. I have a passion for promoting whole foods nutrition, home cooking skills, effective use of supplements, and helping my clients feel better, fast and naturally! I received my MS in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States in Portland, OR.
My ideal clients are those suffering from digestive problems, fibromyalgia, migraines, autoimmune disorders, fatigue, polycyctic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), fertility concerns, insulin resistance, diabetes, and other chronic, frustrating conditions that get in the way of vitality. Working together, I help my clients to learn about their personal nutrient needs, identify adverse food reactions or barriers to healing, and implement nutrition plans to revive health and well being.
My approaches are rooted in core values of building intuitive and mindful eating practices, with the goal of restoring your sense of wholeness and self within your body.
My interest in nutrition grew over the last few years because of my own health challenges and those of my children. Seeking treatment from many conventional doctors left me frustrated and feeling hopeless with some of our health issues. Finding the NTA and pursuing functional nutrition has been life changing.
As an NTP, I work to restore balance and function in the body. All great health begins with digestion. Digestion is a north to south process. Helping people understand the workings of digestion sets them up for good health, as so many issues are resolved once digestion is fine tuned. I evaluate your nutritional needs and make dietary and lifestyle recommendations. I do not prescribe, treat or cure disease.
Working with mid life women who are looking to regain and capture their vitality is my jam! I appreciate helping those with type 2 diabetes, blood sugar issues, weight loss and digestive distress.
I offer a free 20 minute consultation to discuss your needs. I work via Skype and in person. I look forward to serving you.
