Aida Sadeghi, MS, CNS
I am a Clinical Nutritionist who is passionate about health and wellness and uses a functional whole-person approach to create individualized care plans for clients. I utilize holistic integrative approach to help clients to apply therapeutic nutrition to improve digestion, gut health, and metabolic conditions like pre-diabetes, high cholesterol. Simply put, I help my clients learn how to use food as medicine. Through personalized nutrition, I help women optimize their health and fertility for a healthy pregnancy and growing baby.
My personal motivation for nutrition and using quality whole foods in my diet is that I want to create the best possible foundation that I can for creating life. Pregnancy is a huge undertaking for a woman’s body. It requires so much care and attention, nutrients and fuel to create a whole new life. And as each generation does, I want to pay it forward and ensure that my future children have the best possible start in life - and that begins in the womb. That is why, in my practice, I work with women who are ready to start a family and want to improve their foundation for fertility through personalized nutrition therapy for a healthy pregnancy as part of their preconception care.
The main force behind FeelGoodEats Nutrition is a deep desire to help individuals achieve their long-term nutrition goals, strive for vitality and longevity so they can create a fulfilling family life. My role is to support and empower clients in taking ownership of their health through a self-care model that is balanced and sustainable as part of a healthy lifestyle. When you achieve this balance you 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.
