Resources for Eating with Ease Patients
Elevate with Wellevate
How do I purchase supplements to support my care plan?
Eating with Ease provides access to Wellevate, our online supplement dispensary. I may give you recommendations to purchase at a common store, but most often will direct you to this online dispensary for high-quality professional grade supplements. Enjoy the lowest prices I can offer for therapeutic quality and quick delivery to your door.
Supplements are just that-- supplemental.
Let me guide you in the use of food as medicine.
Order Laboratory Tests
Take Charge as you Take Stock
Order simple labs
on your own
or request through your primary care provider
Although we are highly skilled in lab interpretation both from traditional and functional nutrition perspectives, a doctor is required to order most labs.
The following lab providers provide several routine and specialty laboratory tests but do not provide specialty functional nutrition tests. These tests must be ordered through a doctor.
Nutrition at your Doorstep
Micro- and Macronutrient Experts
The Multivitamin, Reinvented
Nutreince - Multivitamin
for optimized micronutrient absorption
This twice daily multivitamin is as close to "good for everyone" as micronutrition gets. With highly absorbable and usable forms of essential vitamins and minerals, intelligent additions of antioxidants and a split strategy to maximize absorption, Nutreince does its job effectively.
Use Fat to Burn Fat
SKINNYFat - MCT Oil Blend
to spark fat burning and lower inflammation
With such fuss about medium chain fats, quality matters. SKINNYFat contains just enough long chain fatty acids to boost your bile flow and is otherwise a medium chain triglyceride powerhouse!
IN.Power Whey and Vegetarian Protein
for covering your protein bases, cleanly
The health benefits of regular protein cannot be understated, especially for mood, digestive wellness, bone and muscle density, and overall health. IN.Power protein solves the problems with most protein powders. IN.Power Whey is grass-fed, cleanly sourced, and tummy-friendly, while IN.Power Rice and Pea Protein gives you a complete, easy to digest vegan protein source that has been meticulously tested to guarantee your experience is free of damaging heavy metals.

Water is Life
Keep it Simple.
Keep it Pure.
Make every drop drinkable
While a low-cost pitcher filter is a great start, the best water filters remove far more contaminants.
For specific individuals with specific needs, the best place to start is the Environmental Working Group’s Interactive Water Filtration database, which has an easy-to-use search function.
With the above considered, some water bottles and pitchers are far better than others. Seychelle has excellent water bottles and pitchers. Minimizing plastic use, as always, is preferred.
For stand-alone filtration systems, the Big Berkey is a countertop powerhouse, filtering slowly but thoroughly. Worth the investment for those with multiple contaminant concerns who want that next-level peace of mind.
