Hi! I’m Jenine.
I’m a clinical pharmacist, nutrition + wellness coach, and founder of Prescribing Health. My experience as a health care provider and my own personal health journey have inspired my passion for helping people heal through nutrition.
My mission is to help busy women struggling with health issues to instead, find healing through food and become fiercely confident in create (and sustaining) a healthy lifestyle they’re truly excited about!
In the past, I’ve had to overcome my own battles with fatigue, weight, illness, and overeating processed foods (aka sugar addiction). After reading books like Food, Inc. and watching several documentaries, I slowly shifted into eating more real foods and a plant-based diet. It didn’t take long for me to experience the radical power and benefits of this new lifestyle.
I never realized how bad I felt, until I started feeling so good. How could I not share this discovery with family, friends and patients? So I did, and continue to do so today.
After graduating with my PharmD from the University of Florida, my career began as a typical retail pharmacist. I later transitioned into working at hospitals, and more recently I’ve been working one-on-one with patients in an outpatient setting. My conversations with patients involve a discussion of their medications and health conditions, but very often this leads to a deeper dialogue around nutrition and lifestyle habits.
I discovered many patients’ health issues are tied to being overweight or due to poor food choices. Changing their nutritional choices could mean fewer medications, fewer side effects, and preventing disease progression. I see how so many people suffer and are desperately looking for answers, but instead get handed more medications.
To better serve my patients, I studied at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to obtain my health coaching certificate. Combining my clinical knowledge of drugs and disease with this new education of nutrition and holistic wellness, led me to confidently help many people regain their health by making nutrition and lifestyle adjustments.
I’ve seen clients break free from sugar addictions, reverse diabetes, reduce the amount of medication they take, lose weight without dieting and regain their energy. It’s amazing to see people get their lives back!
I work with clients in one-on-one OR group settings. Each program is customized to the clients needs. If you’re interested in learning more about how we would work together please reach out to me via email [ firstname.lastname@example.org ] or social media.
And if you just want to say HI or have a quick health related question, feel free to contact me about that too 🙂
