Meet Our Team of Experts
My name is Elise and I am a registered dietitian with a master of science degree in nutritional sciences and the founder of The Flourished Table, an online nutrition coaching and consulting business. I have a passion for helping people to use the power of food to live healthier lives. I believe the key to making sustainable changes is to find the balance between enjoying food while also embracing the power of good nutrition.
Many people believe that healthy eating means they should restrict delicious foods. I feel passionate about showing people that these two things are not mutually exclusive.
Although I am a Registered Dietitian by trade, I am human first. Humans are not meant to be perfect. The same goes for food. There is no one perfect way to eat. I believe enjoying your food is just as important as the nutrients in it.
My goal is to help others make sustainable changes that include food that is both enjoyable and nutritious. Whether you are trying to reach a healthy weight, support and balance your hormones, increase your energy, or improve your mental health, good food can help and I would love to show you how!
Acupuncturist & Herbalist
Hello, I'm Lori and I am an acupuncturist and herbalist at Orange County Acupuncture and Herbs in Fullerton, CA. I offer holistic Chinese medicine to help with chronic symptoms relief via natural healing and balanced wellness.
My mission is to bridge the gaps in conventional medicine surrounding women's health with holistic natural medicine. I have seen many women navigate their health journey overlooking chronic symptoms that can be addressed quite effectively with Chinese medicine.
I view the healing journey as a collaborative process and I start by listening to each patient's story. Then according to her pattern and constitution, I offer customized holistic solutions that address the mind, body, and environment.
When I'm not working, I'm usually just hanging out with family and soaking up the sun in my backyard. Feel free to contact me for a complimentary consultation to find out more about how acupuncture and herbs can help with your reproductive health needs.
