The Power of Combining Pharmacology with Nutrition
My name is Aaron Slotkin and I am a Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist and also a Pharmacist. I am from California, born and raised, and currently reside in Los Angeles, along with my wife, Ann.
My undergraduate education was through the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) where I got my bachelors and masters degree in molecular biology. At that point, I decided to enroll in pharmacy school at the Loma Linda University School of Pharmacy, in California.
When I was in pharmacy school I had an internship at a natural / compounding pharmacy where I was exposed to multiple modalities of natural medicine. I realized just how necessary and effective it can be, especially when using nutrition to heal. This inspired me to become a Nutritionist.
As my client, I want to find out what is really going on with your metabolism and provide you with answers aimed at improving your weight and health in a convenient way. Check out my video for a brief summary of what I do and also a little about clinical or “Functional” nutrition:
My primary focus is helping people achieve their weight management goals. I also enjoy optimizing one’s brain health and balancing hormones with nutritional therapies. Examples of conditions I can support nutritionally are: depression, anxiety, poor memory, PMS, and insomnia.
I am trained in functional blood chemistry analysis. A functional analysis means looking at a blood panel with the goal of achieving wellness and not just screening for a disease. I like to use blood chemistry to guide my nutritional and supplemental recommendations.
In conclusion, I combine pharmacology with nutrition to achieve weight management goals, optimize brain health, improve memory & fight depression, anxiety, PMS & insomnia.
