My Health Journey

She holds a Master's Degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition from New York Chiropractic College, and has earned professional certificates as a Health Coach, Clinical Herbalist, and Advanced Nutrition Response Testing® Practitioner. She is the author and publisher of the Real Food Outlaws blog, where she writes about real food, natural living, and holistic health. Sarah is also the owner of 90210 Organics, an Eco-boutique and apothecary where she creates herbal tea blends, salves, and other herbal remedies. She also travels around the country teaching Nutrition Response Testing® for Ulan Nutritional Systems, INC and as a speaker for Standard Process. 

Sarah is the "real deal"! She has been helping people on their natural health journeys with great results for over 14 years. She uses a specialized, non-invasive method of muscle testing to design individualized clinical nutrition programs to achieve optimal results with their clients. Her background in clinical herbal medicine, homeopathy, and clinical nutrition gives her an edge in the holistic health arena to be able to help her clients efficiently.

When Sarah not working at NHIC, she is busy being a wife, mom to her four children, writing for her blog, speaking in the community, working on her horse farm, and creating herbal remedies.
