Lana Heller, Naturopath, Certified Nutritional Therapist, has studied and practiced clinical nutrition, and functional and energetic balancing since 2001. Inspired by her desire to help people Lana found herself heading towards a career in the natural medicine field. Initially on a path towards a degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, she came across naturopathic medicine and nutrition field and knew immediately that it was her true calling. After becoming a Certified Nutritional Therapist with extensive training in the field of functional medicine, she interned for several years with Dr. Steve Colton, the founder of Alternative Naturopathic Center while completing her Naturopathic Degree from Indian Board of Alternative Medicines. She graduated and began her own practice at ANC utilizing her diverse educational background and experience to truly focus on root causes and issues of the health imbalances of people seeking help. Lana also taught Western Nutrition and Nutritional Disease Management at the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Boulder, CO and Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver until demands of her private practice became too rigorous.
Lana is a firm believer in biochemical individuality and customdesigned interventions based on the person’s ancestry, lifestyle, dietary and exercise habits, stress levels, and prevalent deficiencies. The main focus of her practice is on identifying the true cause of the imbalance, not suppressing or treating the symptoms. To further help with that, she interned with Dr. John Stebbins and learned Applied Kineseology and Natural Allergy Elimination/Reduction technique that has since proved invaluable in helping to identify hidden health hindrances.
Lana uses a combination of food therapy, supplement and herbal therapies and energetic balancing specifically designed for her clients optimal health support. She takes time to know her clients and is diligent in searching for answers and connections while helping her clients to find an optimal most efficient path to true health. True health is freedom from limitations. Lana believes without any in our bodies God’s given ability to heal themselves. If the body is not healing there has to be an obstacle, lack of communication, or an energetic block. Identifying and removing those opens an opportunity for the body to do what it does best – to heal.
Lana does not diagnose or treat medical conditions or diseases, her main focus is on removing blocks and obstacles of healing. Her clients over the last decade include people suffering from gastrointestinal complaints, autoimmune disorders, hormonal/endocrine imbalances, and many others. Time after time again we see that if you provide the incredible machine we call our body with everything it needs, it does an amazing job balancing and healing itself.
