Welcome! My name is Courtney Ellis. I am a certified Master Nutrition Therapist and the proud founder of Root Functional Nutrition. My dynamic approach to health and wellness is based on a unique synthesis of holistic and functional medicine that allows me to help my clients find the root cause of their dis-ease.
My passion for holistic health was borne out of a desire to give my children the healthiest start possible in life. When I became pregnant with my first child in 2004, I began researching how to naturally optimize her growth and development. What I found was a wealth of conflicting information. Undeterred, I continued to research ways to improve my family’s health up until the birth of my second child in 2009. At that point, I was a mother of two beautiful children who unfortunately suffered from chronic rashes, gastrointestinal disorders, and required frequent nebulizer treatments. It became clear that I needed to take a more sophisticated approach to my research if I was going to discover the connection between true health and proper nutrition. Having already earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology, I was excited to continue my education. So, in 2011 I enrolled in the holistic nutrition program at the Nutrition Therapy Institute located in Denver, Colorado. As I became more informed about holistic nutrition and its undeniable link to human health, I was able to successfully address my children’s health issues and bring my family back into a state of balance and well-being.
