Functional Nutrition in Wilmington

Could what you’re eating, even healthy food, be making you sick?

Do you experience vague, undiagnosed symptoms like mood swings, headaches, weight gain, skin conditions, restless sleep, painful joints, etc. that you’ve
“just learned to live with?” Have you been to multiple doctors yet still don’t feel well?

Are you seeking high energy, mental clarity and optimal wellness?


The First State Health & Wellness Functional Nutrition program will help uncover and repair the root causes of your symptoms, not simply mask them with medication.

  • After having my son 5 ½ years ago, I experienced migraines, back and neck pain, bloating, failed dieting and trouble sleeping from the constant stress and lack of attention to my body. Since the first week of care, I have had no headaches, very limited congestion, weight loss after my first cleanse, more energy, less pain each week and I’m sleeping 90% better. The best part is, there is no medication involved and the benefits are even more than expected! Thank you for giving me so much of my health back!

  • Despite eating only organic, non-GMO, pesticide-free food and avoiding common allergens my son, who is now 8, struggled with food and environmental allergies since he was 18 months old. Eczema eventually covered 85% of his body and he was reacting to just about everything he ate. After exhausting attempts to find a solution, delayed food and chemical sensitivity testing finally revealed the food intolerances that were repeatedly triggering his immune system. Today, both his skin and overall well-being have improved—he’s a happy little boy again!

  • I came in as a type 2 diabetic with extreme digestive issues. After discovering my underlying food allergies, we revamped my food and lifestyle choices. My A1C and fasting glucose dropped, I’ve lost weight and my medical doctor approved all of my First State supplements while reducing my dose of Metformin!

Delayed Food and Chemical Sensitivity Testing Makes Our Program Unique

Delayed sensitivities are different than allergies and can be hard to detect because symptoms happen 3 hours to 3 weeks after exposure. Delayed food reactions and chemical sensitivities contribute to chronic low-grade systemic inflammation which can cause ailments such as infertility, unidentified skin conditions, weight loss resistance, chronic “invisible” pain, thyroid dysfunction, diabetes, and the list goes on.

We can test for hundreds of DELAYED food and chemical sensitivities—everything from lemons and garlic, to Red #40—to help identify your immune triggers, avoid exposure, and reduce or even eliminate your burden.

While some labs only look at the IgG antibody, First State Health & Wellness uses the gold standard in delayed food and chemical sensitivity labs to observe lymphocyte reactions. This is akin to peeking inside the immune system for a very clear picture of how the system is responding. Thus giving you a window of opportunity to repair and restore tolerance. Combine your delayed food reactions and chemical sensitivities report with a multi-phase detox and the end result is improved and sustainable health!

In just 12 weeks, we will support your journey
