ABOUT MEG Meg Bowman MS, CNS, LDN Integrative Clinical Nutrition I’m a work in progress. A few years ago, the stress in my life tanked my immune system and I got really sick. Multiple courses of antibiotics and high dose steroids sick. These drugs thankfully kept me breathing, but did nothing for my gut health and I was subsequently diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. The months after my diagnosis were life changing. I went back to school for a Master of Science in Nutrition and Integrative Health, learned a ton about food, and saw immediate improvements in my health. But the most drastic improvements didn’t happen until I addressed my stress. Then, I started to feel energized about life again! As an integrative clinical nutritionist specializing in mental health issues and the physical conditions that go with them, I work with clients to nourish their mind, body, and spirit. I use food, along with select herbs and supplements to bolster the physical body. Integrative practices such as mindfulness, biofeedback, guided imagery, and aromatherapy support the mind and spirit. In my off hours, I love to cook, read, garden, and get into nature with my husband and son.
