Lucia Foster

Lucia Foster

Nutrition Advisor

Lucia Foster received her training as a Nutrition Advisor from the largest integrative nutrition school in the world, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition located in New York City. She is an expert in nutrition and can help you with weight loss, resolving digestive problems with modified nutritional regimens, and helping you to understand healthy cooking and food preparation techniques. Her love of nutrition started as a young child in her home country, Uruguay. Her family prepared meals using natural foods from the local farmers market. When Lucia turned 17, she moved to the United States with her father. After a time of eating a western diet, she developed Hashimoto’s Disease. Turning to what she knew, eating healthy, natural, raw and organic foods, she was able to overcome the disease. This difficult time in her life lead to her desire to help other people learn to support their health with proper nutrition and cooking techniques.
