Chelsie Moore, MS, RYT-500
Hi! My name is Chelsie Moore. My journey in integrative health care and functional forms of wellness began six years ago with my own personal struggle with mental health. After feeling as if I was failed by the medical system, I began to search elsewhere for relief from my daily battle with anxiety, depression, and insomnia. In my quest for answers, I first stumbled across a yoga therapy training program in Salt Lake City, in which I spent two years and 1200 hours studying the various limbs of yoga and learning how Ayurveda, meditation, and asana can provide a healing platform for all sorts of chronic ailments. This, to me, was the first piece of the puzzle, but it didn’t satisfy my need to understand WHY our optimal physiological functioning gets thrown off course. I’m an avid mountain biker, snowboarder, and lover of the outdoors based out of Salt Lake City, UT and I desperately wanted to get back to doing the things that I loved. Enter Maryland University of Integrative Health.
After studying functional nutrition, I completed advanced training in Amino Acid Therapy through the Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition lead by Christina Veselak and Dr. Hyla Cass. This knowledge has served as a powerful tool to support patients in restoring balanced brain chemistry. I have been fortunate enough to study among some of the world’s greatest experts in this field, and am excited to share my clinical experience and knowledge to help you find your own haven of wellness. I’m a dreamer, I’m an optimist, and I am never complacent in my desire to help people find wellness. I believe that we all have to do our part in making this world a better place, and this initiative of mine is my way of doing so.
I obtained my Master’s of Science degree in Clinical Nutrition and Integrative Health with an emphasis in Sports Nutrition, Nutritional Psychology, and Chronic Disease. There I learned all of the biochemical nuances of health and wellness, and the environmental inputs that can alter our biochemical balance through a new frontier of science called epigenetics and nutritional genomics. I was instantly inspired. Not only because I was able to use food, nutrients, and lifestyle changes to recover my own mental health, but because I was able to bear witness to just how powerful this approach can be for patients with all sorts of chronic disease diagnoses. Now enter my endless drive to put my heart and soul into studying this field and serving those around me.
