I’ve lived with a philosophy that we eat good food, exercise, rest when necessary, supplement occasionally, be grateful and always love each other.

Melissa Crispell

I was extremely blessed to grow up in family that understood the importance of food and nutrition. Both my parents have a love of cooking. My father has a passion for gardening and he made sure we had fresh vegetables on the table. This appreciation for ‘real’ nourishment was instilled in me at a young age, and has since been passed on through the generations. Now, as a certified natural health provider, I look forward to sharing this passion with you!

At the First State Health & Wellness Integrative Health Center, we have introduced functional nutrition—nutrition-based care that is focused on building health by restoring your body’s natural ability to function. By identifying triggers of the immune system, detoxifying your body, and defining specific food recommendations to heal your gut, functional nutrition will help restore your health and keep you feeling your best.

Together, we will explore nutrition, lifestyle and exercise modifications to help you achieve a healthy balance!
