Dean A Stockwell Integrative Nutritionist, Certified Organic Farmer
Experience has shown that many serious conditions can be improved or eliminated by focusing on the exact nutrients that the body needs. Utilizing alternative options with much lower risk of side effects should be the first option chosen before other medical options, which generally have higher long term risks. Organic food is best and safest, since it contains no pesticides and herbicides, which is why I have an organic vegetable farm.
Growing up, I planned to be a scientist. After receiving a degree in physics from Northeastern University, I spent my early career at IBM as an engineer and manager. When I retired after 30 years, I decided I really wanted to know how to be healthy and live a long healthy life. To begin to get the background needed, I attended the University of Vermont for four years, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Food Science with Highest Honors (Summa Cum Laude). Continuing my path, I worked at the Berlin hospital and UCVH for five years as a Nutrition Professional and Registered Dietetic Technician. I learned the standard nutrition support at hospitals, but was not satisfied that it maximized health and longevity, so I started my own practice.
All the while, I was farming and achieved Organic Certification for my two acre vegetable and herb farm in 2012. I am also a certified nutritional herbalist. I have utilized my research and knowledge to help clients with many conditions including GI problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, COPD, kidney disease and many others.
