We Believe in the Power of Nutrition
There is a rich and evolving body of science illuminating nutrition’s impact on our health.
Nutrition is the core element of our health and can prevent and reverse disease.
Because our biology is unique, personalized nutrition most powerfully taps our health potential.
Nutrition should be a core element of our healthcare culture and system, and all health professionals should be equipped and empowered to integrate nutrition into their work.
Nutrition is an ecosystem of food growers and providers, scientists, academics, healthcare professionals, policymakers, philanthropists, corporations and more.
Every person deserves access to healthy food and unbiased, science-based nutrition knowledge.

Personalized Nutrition Stories
After years of studying, practicing and teaching I am still blown away every day by the depth of knowledge we have available to us to understand the functioning of our bodies. I am now a proud member of the American Nutrition Association. Nutrition is part of the emerging healthcare system of the future and the ANA is on the forefront of developing it in an evidence-based, trustworthy and scientific way.
Jan Kielmann, MS, CNSPractitioner & ANA Ambassador
I spent over 20 years battling severe gastrointestinal pain. I was misdiagnosed and ineffectively treated and couldn’t do the things I enjoyed, like going out to eat or taking a vacation with my family. My condition was getting worse and more complex, so I decided to try another route and get help from a CNS. She was the first person to take time to get the whole picture about my health and work with me on a nutrition plan that we refined over time. After five months I was free from migraines and GI pain. And I was finally able to take a worry-free beach vacation!
