Welcome! My Name is Lara Zakaria, I’m an Integrative Pharmacist, Certified Nutrition Specialist, & IFM Certified Practitioner (IFMCP)

I specialize in helping people integrate personalized nutrition and lifestyle medicine principles to help prevent and reverse chronic disease.

I believe in access and inclusion when it comes to health services. I offer one-on-one consultations, online courses, groups, and eBooks at various price points to help meet you where you’re at.

My approach merges my allopathic training with Functional Medicine, herbalism, nutritional biochemistry and genomics to design personalized and sustainable interventions. Protocols are a blend of Evidence-Based lifestyle interventions, emerging research, the highest quality supplements and herbs, on a foundation of whole foods first to address:

  • Digestive problems, dysbiosis, SIBO & leaky gut
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Thyroid disease
  • Cardiovascular & metabolic disease (including hypertension, high cholesterol)
  • Sugar metabolism & insulin sensitivity (diabetes)
  • Symptoms of fatigue, mental “fog”, pain & inflammation
  • Medication-related side-effects, and nutrient depletions

Thanks to the power of the internet and the explosion of interest in Functional and Lifestyle Medicine, there are some outstanding resources out there. But many patients I’ve worked with come to me frustrated and conflicted. They do their homework, and often have read and researched only to feel frustrated and stuck or overwhelmed with conflicting information.

My goal is to educate and empower you in navigating the wealth of information out there, figure out what’s right for you, and fill your toolbox with the tools you need to implement practical, effective, and sustainable changes.
