About Us

Nutrition and Wellness is not a "one size fits all" concept.  Everyone's body is unique and responds to food and lifestyle modifications differently.  With IntegraLife's flexible approach, anyone can successfully improve their nutrition and lifestyle improving overall health. 

Often there is a disconnect when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle.  We know what’s good for our bodies, but we don’t always act accordingly. IntegraLife aims to mend the gap between knowing and doing, by catering to each individual's unique circumstances. Whether it is weight management, developing a healthy relationship with food, or improving a health condition; IntegraLife offers a variety of services and packages designed to meet your needs.

As of March 2023, IntegraLife is now an American Diabetes Association recognized program.  This can assure you that we have met the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education programs.
