Work with me virtually or at my Diet and Health Center in San Antonio. Contact me here to see if I can help you.
I’ve been in practice since 1985, Board Certified as a Clinical Nutritionist in 1989. Clinical Nutritionists are not Dietitians or Nutritionists. We are a separate, more elite profession working with the chemistry of the body. Lab work is a specialty. I carry professional grade supplements from more than 50 companies and attend seminars on the latest in cellular nutrition.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a licensed medical doctor and cannot diagnose, treat or prescribe. I help you educate yourself to make better choices and communicate with your doctors.
How did I get into this?
I’ve struggled with food intolerances, Celiac and malabsorption most of my life. I’ve overcome or am treating Adrenal Failure, Primary Immune Deficiency, severe Epstein Barr, chronic Herpes Virus and debilitating anxiety and insomnia. I tried many different supplements (and a few prescription meds) and several ways of eating (none vegetarian), learning a lot about the power of food. My DVD “The Diet For Human Beings” sums up why I feel true and correct Paleo (not Keto) is the best template for most people to start with.
My Unique Approach
I don’t know anyone who works the way I do. My goal is to try to locate core issues causing inflammation and stress to all body systems as quickly as we can. We do this first with a food and lifestyle review, not by running random, expensive tests. Or swallowing lots of supplements. There’s more to do but let’s get to your biggest chemistry (food) first. Sometimes this alone resolves your issue.
Most practitioners skip this and start with costly (profitable) labs and heavy doses of pricey pills?? Mine is not a cookbook approach. (If you have symptom XXX, take pill YYY). I know for a fact that people have spent thousands to run labs they didn’t need and be sold the same menu of supplements as their spouse.
Everyday living is where we start. Supplements and labs can follow.
What type of clients do I accept?
Two kinds of people contact me. One wants diet and supplement tips. One wants to change their future. I work with both.
My initial appointments are an hour and a half. Time to really review a food and sleep diary, history, health issues, current meds and labs. I give homework on upgrading the diet, reducing stress and anxiety, and adding a few supplements from my online store or the clinic to start to target your issue. I include lots of suggestions for what might help you feel and function better. You’ll want to take a lot of notes.
**At age 67 I’m healthier than I’ve ever been. Maybe you can be too.**
Tell me which type of work you want and I’ll try to do what you wish. I have limited hours though and cannot accept everyone as a Client.
I ask you please to first think about what you WANT, what you EXPECT and what you NEED. I can’t help a long list of disorders, diet, hormonal and sleep issues in one appointment.
What do I charge?
Rebuilding your body is a process – most people have no idea how depleted they really are.
My rates are affordable (about a third or a quarter what others charge). Many practitioners charge $1000 – $2000 upfront plus hundreds in labs before you’ve even had an interview. Some doing this have never even had a clinic – just course work with a blogger or practitioner. Me – I’ve been at this since 1985 as a practitioner, and the early 1970’s working on my own health before and during a career in big business.
Ongoing email support is not included in our Consult. We make review appointments and follow-ups as needed. I do not accept Insurance.

How long do we work together?
That’s up to you. I’ve worked with some clients 15 years and others only once. Life happens, and ongoing support is needed to keep inflammatory disorders at bay, help weight and hormones stay balanced, and maintain sleep and energy. If you want real change I ask for monthly or quarterly follow-ups. I also do Nutrition Response testing in house with samples you submit.
You’re a work in progress – always will be. Health care never ends.
Do I have specialties?
I’m a generalist – I work with everyone except those dealing with cancer. I have extra experience with Anxiety, Sleep, Leaky Gut, Herpes, Epstein Barr, Adrenals, Thyroid, autoimmune disorders, allergies, digestion and clarifying what to eat.
Do Clients talk with Beverly personally?
I work alone, except for my office manager Elizabeth who helps you on Tuesdays and Fridays when my clinic is open. I see clients there and help her ship your orders when I’m not working on the website, my Podcasts, or talking to Virtual Clients the rest o the week.
After Food and Lifestyle Improve
First appointments are for health history, Food/Sleep/Mood Diary, looking at existing labs, and giving homework on areas I see need attention first. Maybe a supplement or two. Often a Salivary Hormone Test.
After that, when food and lifestyle are headed in a better direction, I want to build a supplement program for you and perhaps run labs. Taking handfuls of pills is never the first step. Let me repeat that.
Just adding handfuls of supplements to the life you currently lead is not going to change your future.
A few things we’ll consider: Adrenal and thyroid function, Progesterone levels, chronic pain, reflux, poor sleep, emotional and physical trauma, viruses/bacteria/yeast, poor dental work, mold, heavy metal exposure, causes of constipation or loose stool, skipping meals, headaches, worry, lack of play and rest, and sooooo much more. Good interview techniques and labs help me be the best detective I can be.
What’s in my Online Store?
If you can’t do a Consult right now, study my articles and my Online Store. I carry professional products for viruses and Candida, gentle thyroid and adrenal support and excellent herbs for sleep, stress and anxiety. And allergies! Products selected from the hundreds in my office to be easy to use, safe, and effective. Click the Supplement Category that looks helpful. Every product has useful information written on it.
I only carry professional grade supplements, not discount store products. Many of them are LESS expensive than on Amazon.
