It's time to elevate your nutrition!
"Symptoms are not enemies to be destroyed, but sacred messengers who encourage us to take better care of ourselves." --Food Matters Documentary
Hi! I'm Jennifer Merin Babich and I am a Restorative Health Practitioner who provides longevity solutions mainly via functional nutrition therapy. I have studied multiple modalities such as functional medicine/nutrition, hormone balance, mitochondrial health, immune imbalance and autoimmune disease, gut health, nutrigenetics/nutrigenomics, detoxification/biotransformation, metabolic imbalances, behavior change, corrective exercise, and plant-based nutrition.
I hold a Master's in Human Nutrition & Functional Medicine and a Bachelor's in Sports Medicine. It became my passion to teach people how to improve their quality of life after losing several family members (including my mom, dad, step-mom, aunt, and all grandparents) before I turned 21.
It is now well known that we can eliminate or improve many of the developed world's most common diseases and disorders (including heart disease, attention deficit disorders, diabetes, certain cancers, depressive disorders, autoimmune diseases, allergies, asthma... and thousands of smaller ailments) if we learn a little more about food and our environment. This is why I developed The Plant-Based Theory--plant foods are a force of nature (quite literally) and can help support the many systems in our body that break down!.
My mission is to provide a guided, educational experience that will allow people to become fluent in plant-powered diets, be their own advocate for optimal health, and steer them away from unnecessary pain, suffering, and untimely death.
Nutrition can seem daunting and impossible at times (considering all of the conflicting advice out there).

Nutrition can seem daunting and impossible at times (considering all of the conflicting advice out there). But nutrients are the fuel our bodies use for everything from keeping our skin healthy, to boosting our immune system, to improving our mood. Thus, it is vital that we ensure our body receives the nutrients it needs. I strive to provide you with the best and most up-to-date, research-backed information on why eating more plant foods can improve your (mental and physical) health, eliminate/reverse disease, improve your quality of life, and increase your longevity.
Functional medicine techniques are designed to help restore your body as a whole. The focus is on the root cause of the issue(s)--we don't simply slap a Band-Aid on them. For example, someone suffering from headaches may in fact have gut issues that are causing the headaches. Giving them Ibuprofen will not solve the underlying issue, and
Functional medicine techniques are designed to help restore your body as a whole. The focus is on the root cause of the issue(s)--we don't simply slap a Band-Aid on them. For example, someone suffering from headaches may in fact have gut issues that are causing the headaches. Giving them Ibuprofen will not solve the underlying issue, and they will wind up taking Ibuprofen for the rest of their life (which, ironically, damages the gut further). Finding the root cause and restoring balance to the system can improve inflammation, the immune response, gene expression, and ultimately how we feel. By analyzing symptoms, sleep habits, stress levels, relationships, nutrition, exercise, and environment we can pinpoint what systems may need to be rebalanced and work together to make you feel whole again.

2020: The year I made lemonade out of lemons by taking on a Master's degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine!
You may have noticed that I have been quiet since the start of the pandemic. It's not due to being hidden in a bunker--unless you can call my office a bunker. I've dove head first into a pretty challenging degree. Watch the video to find out more!
