Stacy Cantlin, PhD Clinical Nutrition

Stacy Cantlin discovered her passion for nutrition in 1997. A semester long Nutrition 101 course planted the seed that led her to change perspective on the role of food in health and wellness. She found her true calling and enjoys nothing more than coaching clients to help them reclaim their health. She holds a doctorate in clinical nutrition from Kingdom College of Natural Health 2012, started teaching Yoga in 2014, became a Reiki practitioner in 2013 and a TBA practitioner in 2006.

“I would be honored to being a part of your journey, nutrition is my passion, and I'm looking  forward to inspiring you and coaching you towards achieving your goals”

Stacy is also a trained practitioner in TBA (Total Body Analysis), a 100% natural and homeopathic method to healing. It involves applied kinesiology (or muscle testing) to read electromagnetic frequencies in the body that are not functioning optimally. With this data she develops a specific-to-you homeopathic remedy to correct the deficiencies.
