Aida Sadeghi,MS,CNS

As a Nutritionist, I am dedicated to good nutrition and health. Through my experience working in the medical field, I witnessed first hand  the toll poor nutrition takes on a person's health. With a family history of high cholesterol, I learned at a young age that my genetics and poor food habits were already affecting my health. This motivated me to pursue a higher education, a Master's degree, in Nutrition from American University. Practicing nutrition is a science and should be treated as such. After completing my graduate degree, I then earned my CNS (Certified Nutrition Specialist) credential to provide a high standard of care with an evidence-based approach to nutrition therapy.

Having witnessed the limitations of conventional medicine, I became passionate about applying functional medicine through medical nutrition therapy. Using an integrative approach, allows me to support clients with a personalized plan to take the right steps toward better health. My goals is to effectively educate and support clients on their health journey through balanced and sustainable nutrition, providing an overall improved lifestyle. I am passionate about food and fitness. Some of my interests include baking, cooking, dancing, running, taking in the sun at the beach and travelling.

A balanced relationship with food, allows you to eat what is good for you and what makes you feel good. When you achieve this balance you will feel less guilt, and you will be more energized and satisfied about your food choices. That path to a balanced relationship with food is unique to each individual.  It's a journey that takes time, patience, experimenting and learning. My role is to support and guide you with my knowledge and experience in this unique journey.

What is CNS?

The Certified Nutrition Specialist® (CNS) credential is the only nationally recognized and regarded credential available to nutritionists that holds professionals to a similar standard as RD/RDN (Registered Dietitian/Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) requirements. The CNS certification is fully accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) which distinguishes the CNS for its robust and reliable process for development, implementation, maintenance and governance of the certification.

To obtain a CNS, one must complete at least a master's of science in the field of nutrition, which includes coursework in biology, biochemistry, microbiology, human anatomy, and human physiology. It also requires completion of 1,000 hours of supervised field experience and passing a rigorous comprehensive exam. 

Next to the Registered Dietitian (RD/RDN) credential, the CNS certification is the only other nationally recognized credential eligible for licensure for nutrition practice.
