Practice philosophy: Eating is essential to life, and eating healthy and sensibly is way of life, not a quick fix. There are “sometimes foods” and there are “always foods” and we need a bit of both to be truly healthy.

Best part of working with patients: My favorite part about visiting with patients is the relationship that we get to build. I feel this relationship is crucial to being able to help patients discover what healthy eating looks like for them, as a unique individual.

Why I became a provider: I became a provider because I discovered how important good nutrition was for my own body, and I wanted to be able to help others discover the same freedom that came with eating healthy.

Maureen Rose Doran specializes in integrative nutrition, a science-based “food as medicine” therapy for prevention and treatment of chronic and degenerative diseases. She has a bachelor’s degree in foods and nutrition. Doran advocates “food first,” recommending whole, clean foods that serve to nurture, strengthen and heal the body. When foods cannot provide all the nutrients necessary for optimal health, evidence-based supplements are utilized.

Doran also maintains a teaching practice in Kundalini yoga and mindfulness-based meditation, providing therapeutic instruction to both individuals and groups. Blending nutrition, yoga and meditation, Doran has developed a transformational mind/body program for weight management. This refreshing non-diet approach provides freedom from compulsive, destructive eating patterns and supports a happier, healthier relationship with food and body.

Practice philosophy: As an integrative nutritionist, I use “a food as medicine” approach to help people achieve improved health. Whether for general health, or disease prevention or management, I can meet you where you are to work on large or small dietary and lifestyle changes and goal setting.

Best part of my work: Through my experiences with functional and integrative nutrition, I find that patients are much more engaged and excited about taking control of their health.

Why I became a provider: I became an integrative nutritionist because even though I ate healthy and exercised on a regular basis, I still didn’t feel that I had great health. After doing more research and finding other like-minded health professionals, I found whole foods and specific supplementation helped me to have more energy, sleep better and have mental clarity. In addition, I have a close family member with ADHD who has been helped greatly through dietary changes, nutrition supplementation, and working with an integrative pediatrician.
