About Jen Vitry, DCN(c), MS, CNS, LDN - Wellness Consultant

Jen Vitry - Wellness Consultant

After a fulfilling forensic science career and running my firm for 13 years, I embarked on a transformative journey. I earned a Master's in Clinical Nutrition with a minor in Herbalism, and my passion for holistic healing led me to pursue a doctorate in Clinical Nutrition. During my demanding career, where I worked on death row cases and assisted numerous traumatized families during trials and hearings, I battled multiple medical conditions that necessitated a daily regimen of innumerable prescriptions. Unfortunately, these medications eventually led to gastroparesis, paralyzing my stomach. Even consultations with leading experts from the American College of Gastroenterology couldn't pinpoint the cause, and they proposed surgery to implant a stomach pump, stating that my stomach might never function properly again.

Driven by the belief in natural solutions, I sought out a Naturopath who offered the advanced labs I now provide to clients. Together, we identified food sensitivities and toxins as the culprits. Following a comprehensive protocol involving specific dietary adjustments, detoxification, and lifestyle changes, I achieved a complete recovery without surgery. I could discontinue all medications, regain full functionality, enjoy activities like hiking and playing basketball with my son, and reclaim my focus, energy, and mental clarity that had eluded me for five years.

This life-altering experience compelled me to transition from my previous career and embark on a path in holistic health to help others attain similar results. Many individuals grapple with conditions, relying solely on surgical procedures and medications for answers. The community must recognize that there are ways to uncover the root causes and implement natural solutions. I empathize with those facing the prospect of surgery and ongoing deterioration with no apparent alternatives, and I want them to know that there is hope for reclaiming their lives.

Success stories

  • I helped a Type 1 diabetic diagnosed with Lupus pursue her dream of attending agriculture school. After four months of collaboration, her Lupus diagnosis was withdrawn by the doctors at Mt Sinai given the reduction in symptomology and improvements.
  • Another individual dealing with EDS, UC, ADHD, and chronic fatigue identified the root causes of her health issues through functional medicine testing. Together, we addressed her gut health & food sensitivities, reduced her toxic load, and improved her methylation. As a result, she returned to work, established a meal plan, and regained her ability to enjoy family activities and travel.
  • One of my clients struggled with bipolar disorder and recurrent UTIs. After tests and collaboration with her specialists, we discovered that she actually had hyperthyroidism. With proper treatment, her mood stabilized, her immune system balanced, and she received a new diagnosis of depressive episodes NOS, requiring only an SSRI at 40 mg. She was able to return to work and rebuild her relationship with her boyfriend.
  • Multiple clients have found natural supplement solutions and made lifestyle modifications to address their ADHD, eliminating the need for amphetamines.
