Board Certified Functional Nutrition Counselor & Holistic Health Practitioner

I teach you how to use nutrition & lifestyle modification to move towards root cause resolution so that you can enjoy optimal wellness.

Hi! I’m Lori Zabka

I’m on a mission to help you restore your health and achieve optimal wellness so that you can live your life to the absolute fullest. 


My early years were plagued with sugar addiction, anxiety, and adherence to the “Standard American Diet” of heavily processed, nutrient deficient foods. Unaware of how to care for my body and my mind, my diet and lifestyle choices perpetuated a constant state of sickness and stress. While I looked okay on the outside, I was deteriorating on the inside and by the time I was in my early twenties, I was on my way to chronic illness. My body was giving me all the signals, but I didn’t know how to listen to or interpret those messages…


…that is, until my body said, “enough is enough,” and I knew that things had to change.


With the help of a Functional Medicine Doctor, I realized that my body AND my mind needed a hard reset, so I spent several years undoing old habits, forming new ones, and learning to truly love the body that I inhabit. 


Later, I dove into the study of holistic wellness, and began a career as a Functional Nutrition Counselor. I’ve spent the past 16 years helping clients reset their own wellness in order to become their healthiest selves. 


That’s the short version. If you find pieces of yourself in my story, click the bar below to learn more about my approach...



Work One-on-One with Me

I’m looking to partner with women who are truly ready to improve their wellness. My work as a functional nutrition counselor goes much deeper than giving you a nutrition plan and sending you on your way. We will work together to help the body heal and regenerate by restoring balance. I roll up my sleeves and do the detective work of uncovering the root causes of signs, symptoms, or disease states. Appointments available in person or virtually.

Ultimate Guide to Successful Slumber

Soo….how’d you sleep last night? Poor quality sleep is one of the biggest stressors on the body, and a leading cause of weight gain, obesity, and disease. If a healthy & fit body is what you’re seeking, you have to address foundational aspects of wellness first, and sleep certainly tops the list.

Lori’s kindness and compassion tempered with the knowledge she has is a wonderful combination.
I’m 30 pounds down, my health has improved, and my sleep is better than it's been in many, many years. I can't thank you enough Lori. You've educated me, encouraged me, and celebrated all of my wins through this journey.
