Meet Andréa

Andréa Evans Rochester, New York Nutritionist

 

Andrea

My name is Andréa Evans and I am a Clinical Nutritionist, Certified Applied Kinesiologist, Certified Holistic Health Counselor and a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I hold a Master’s degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition.

 

While in college, studying people and how the world works my eyes began to open up to a bigger picture. I began to question the answers I was given and I was no longer satisfied with the usual responses. As a child I had many serious health issues and as an adult I was still frequently ill. I had been diagnosed with a multitude of medical problems including anxiety, depression, interstitial cystitis, cervical cancer, uterine polyps (which were also cancer), ovarian cysts, irritable bowel syndrome, kidney stones and disease, PCOS and infertility. I also suffered from a debilitating eating disorder that developed from my fear of food connected to my health problems. The list became longer and longer. I began to search for alternative ways to heal myself as I hated being medicated, at one point I was on 23 different prescription medications.

 

I turned to nutrition, whole food supplements (nutrients!), medicinal herbal therapy, exercise, and essential oils. Over the next several years I managed to find healthy, natural ways to alleviate my illnesses as well as safely and effectively lose over 45 pounds. As time went on people naturally began to ask for my help with their health challenges, nutritional questions and weight-loss endeavors. I counseled other I.C. and I.B.S. patients as well without even thinking about it. It was just something I enjoyed doing and came naturally. I decided to forgo law school (I hold a Bachelor’s in History and Pre-Law) and the accompanied scholarships to become a Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Counselor to fulfill my passion of supporting people to overcome their health challenges, achieve their goals for their health, lose weight safely and naturally and to live the life they have always wanted to live.

At this point in my career I have achieved a Master’s degree and a multitude of certifications in Kinesiology so that I may work more closely with nutritional needs based on deficiencies uncovered through the functional signs and symptoms as well as the muscle testing. Kinesiology has changed my life and my family’s life as we have been able to feed our bodies the nutrition that was truly needed that we could not uncover previously. I am cancer and disease free and have been for over fourteen years.

In 2011 my hopes came to fruition, I did what the doctors had told me would not happen – I became pregnant. In conjunction with living the lifestyle that I preach, my son Bradley was born in the most holistic way possible – at home, with no intervention with a team of care givers in January, 2012. He is incredibly healthy and I am proud to say the product of excellent nutrition and lifestyle. In 2014 and again in 2016 my then husband and I were again blessed beyond belief and continued to prove nay-sayers wrong with the birth of our second son, Dawson and third son Luke. Again both times, I gave birth at home. Being able to get pregnant and keep a healthy pregnancy not once, but three times when I was told I would never be able to do so has been transformative for me.
I received my nutrition and holistic health counseling training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City which is the only nutrition school integrating all of the different dietary theories- combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies with modern concepts like the USDA food pyramid, the glycemic index, food allergy elimination, and raw and superfoods.
I continued my education through New York Chiropractic College to receive my Master’s in Applied Clinical Nutrition as well as my certification in Applied Kinesiology. I attend advanced training through Standard Process, New York Chiropractic College, Functional Medicine University, NETMindBody and many gifted colleagues on a very regular basis – I am always learning and researching to be the absolute best I can be for my patients!
I offer individual and group health and nutrition counseling, as well as workshops on nutrition, and health.. I specialize in uncovering hidden challenges in the body as well as digestive disorders, food intolerance and gluten sensitivity, interstitial cystitis, metabolic syndrome, adrenal fatigue, detoxification, pre and post-natal nutrition and weight loss.
As a Holistic Practitioner, I have studied all the major dietary theories and will help you discover what approach works best for you at this point in your life. Rather than dwelling on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restrictions and lists of good and bad foods, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial.
No one diet works for everyone. I will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. I will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.
It’s rare for anyone to get dedicated time to work on their nutrition and goals with a trained professional. I am here to create a supportive environment while we explore what really works for you.

Additional education: I am trained and certified in many forms of muscle testing including NRT (Nutrition Response Testing), MAT (Meridian Autonomic Testing), SSA (System Strength Analysis) and classic Applied Kinesiology. I am currently completing coursework for certifications in Functional Medicine and Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) as well.

Sick of seeing doctors-- Andrea gave me my life back

I started seeing Andrea after a friend recommended her a few months ago. I had been dealing with a complicated bladder issue that impacted every aspect of my daily life. I was 23, unable to work or go to school, feeling like I was 65. At that point, I was on the verge of hopelessness. I had (...)

There were SO many good SURPRISES when it came to working with Andrea!

“When I first heard about Andrea and Gateway Nutrition I had my doubts how she could help me. I didn’t think that something on my skin would have to do with what was going on inside of me/what I was ingesting. I worried that Andrea would think I was really gross for letting my skin issue get (...)
