It’s time to live life abundantly

Master the skills it takes to crush your health and wellness goals by addressing your root causes of your health concerns with Traditional Naturopathy and/or Holistic Nutrition services so you can live life abundantly! 

We approach health differently here

We understand you may be new to more natural health options, but we also know health in general can be overwhelming and Dr. Danielle and Aria are here to support you with whatever you bring to the table 

because you deserve more than being treated on the surface level with bandaids that don’t actually help you, but at least calm the “squeaky wheel.”

You may feel like you’re wasting time searching for just the right dieting plan, practitioner, or fitness plan to fix your life, but every time you find one you are disappointed because the plan over promised and under delivered. 

And let’s be honest- you don’t have any time to waste. 

You’re already trying to juggle your job, housework, spending quality time with loved ones, walking on the eggshells around certain people so as not to rock the boat, let alone all the other responsibilities you have.

Naturopathic Services

The modern landscape of health is changing, and the prevalence of chronic health issues like diabetes, heart disease, PCOS, and thyroid problems continues to rise, often met with limited solutions within traditional medicine. It’s no longer just about fatigue or body pains; a spectrum of challenges like autoimmune conditions, leaky gut, digestive distress, hormonal imbalances, and mental well-being are emerging, signaling a deeper concern. Traditional medicine, while pivotal, frequently falls short in addressing the underlying triggers of these issues. Symptom alleviation is a common approach, but it’s time to go further, to uncover the roots.

Your Personalized Path to Optimal Health Starts Here

New Patient Package

A New Patient Wellness Package is required for all new Patients.

My process starts with you filling out a lengthy health history that dates back to birth. This information allows me to understand your wellness journey and assist you. We as physical beings, truly are the accumulation of our life’s history, trauma, joy and everything in between.

Plan for 90 minutes for your Initial Wellness Consultation. This will be a lot of you filling in the gaps of your health history so I can prepare a protocol just for you. I’ll recommend labs and a few lifestyle and nutrition pieces at the end of this visit. 

Once your lab results are back, I’ll provide you a video response back with the results and a full protocol for you to implement. You’ll then schedule your included Follow Up Wellness Visit 4-6 weeks after.

Danielle recommends the follow up package as you’ll have access to her via the patient portal for 6 months to get your questions answered.

You will continue to fill out paperwork for me to assess your progress, your next steps, which labs you may need ordered next, and continued updated supplement routines.

Acute Visits

I’m always surprised how many of my loyal patients don’t know that I can provide care for your acute situations; colds, cases of the flu, urinary tract infections, headaches, injuries, wound care – and not just supplements, but immediate relief in some cases!

 

Acute appointments are for symptoms that have sudden onset and need immediate attention.

  • winter immune needs
  • hay fever season
  • coming back from traveling
  • digestive upset, IBS
  • sniffles
  • flu’s, coughs, skin rashes
  • sleep issues or stress management etc

 

You MUST be an established patient with Danielle in order to book this appointment. 

My patients are not only hitting their health and wellness goals, but they are also breaking free from relationships, stressors, tasks, beliefs, habits, and ways of life that no longer serve them.

It’s not about who gets there the fastest. It’s about building life-long habits, confidence, community, and deep relationships that empower you to live the life YOU want. The life that fills you with joy, smiles, laughter, and freedom.

My holistic health clinic’s root cause practice is NOT the same as a dieting program. Over the past six years, I’ve formulated a proven METHOD for sustainable results that includes a personalized approach diving into your deep inner beliefs, coping mechanisms, and more.

The healing process to get healthy does not have to be an arduous lifestyle overhaul.

It’s within the root cause, internal work, where you see progression toward the results you actually want. 

You see other people living the life you want with amazing memories, social posts, and stories– so you know living life abundantly is capable of being done.

Can I let you in on a secret, my friend?

Not being held back by your body’s size, symptoms or the unwanted hurts, habits, or other obstacles IS accessible to you, too. 

Nutrition Services

Having a foundation of proper nutrition for your body’s needs- whether it be healing, maintaining, or preventative is a vital part of your health.

You may want nutrition support if you have autoimmune concerns like Hashimoto’s, insulin resistance or blood sugar issues, cholesterol imbalance, weight problems, inflammation, or other digestive, hormonal, or gut health concerns. 

Right now Aria is offering single  appointments and one package all conducted virtually in the convenience of your own home or office. 

Single Appointments

Nutrition is more than just the next best dieting program out there. Here at CIMC we believe nutrition is part of a healthy foundation. While many know what to do, actually doing it is something different. 

You may be working with Dr. Danielle as your traditional naturopath and she’s recommended you to have deeper nutrition support & accountability, you may be new to a diagnosis or health concern and want to get your nutrition in line, or you may need to work on weight loss. No matter where you are in your health journey it is a great idea to get nutrition support and check ups periodically. 

 

Single Appointments Offered:

  • Initial Consultation- During the Initial Consultation, Aria reviews your intake forms, information given by Dr. Danielle if you’re working alongside her, and discusses your nutritional goals in further detail. Aria will review with you your current lifestyle, diet and short- and long-term nutrition goals. Supplementation will be approved by Dr. Danielle. From there, Aria can start to build & maintaining your custom Holistic Nutrition Plan. Duration: 50 – 60 minutes
  • Recommendations Visit- During a Recommendations Visit, a 1 Hour Session, Aria meets with you to discuss your action plan, helping you put into play your new nutrition protocol. Aria will ensure you leave the visit confident in knowing what to do from that day forward until your next visit. You will then follow her directions and be coached via the patient portal. Duration: 50 – 60 minutes
  • 45-Minute or 30-Minute Follow Up- During the follow-up appointments Aria will discuss your progress with your Holistic Nutrition Plan. Aria will review your health plan and goals and make new adjustments and implement additional recommendations where necessary. Much coaching still takes place inside the patient portal. You can choose between 45 minutes or 30 minutes depending on your preferences. Duration: 40-45 minutes

Even though you don’t YET have the tools, resources, and team to support you, there’s a fire under your tail that says you’re anxious for change.

As long as it’s not at the expense of sacrificing your joy and your freedom.

I know how you feel, because I was there, too.

Just about 6 years ago, this was me: Sitting in over 300 pounds, a mama of a high needs baby who nursed nonstop and didn’t sleep, and I had a 5 year old and a 3 year old. My husband worked a lot and was in his own deep dive of depression and addictions. I was lonely. Exhausted. Stressed terribly.

And although the hours in my day were busier and I was demanded of more than ever, motherhood made me want to be better for my children than what I was giving them.

It made me think about taking care of myself as a means of caring for them. It wasn’t but a few years before I had to witness my father wake up on a ventilator after a quintuple bypass surgery. I was on my way to being in the same bed as my father a few years down the road due to my poor health habits.

The hurt I’ve experienced over heart disease and diabetes in my father is not what I want my children to go through. Heart disease and diabetes have shaped my worldview and skewed it to believe I didn’t have control and I had to just let it happen to me.

I woke up.

I realized I don’t have to be a statistic.

I had to learn how to take care of me with no time.

I had to look at every moment of my day differently. I found pockets of time to get in gym time throughout the week. I asked for ideas of foods to eat from friends that were a few steps ahead of me in this eating balanced foods thing.

I had to figure out where my time was best spent to get the results I wanted.

I had to become efficient in motherhood duties of nursing a little one, doing carpool four times a day, getting to the gym, grocery runs, cooking, nap times, homework, and other household duties, let alone my volunteering for women’s ministry.

After asking for help and a bit of trial and error, I’ve unlocked the magic that actually works.

Your good intentions don’t get you healthy. YOU have to do the work.

You want . . .
  • To get rid of all the gimmicks- eating from templates, not seeing results from your workouts, managing points, shakes that make you bloat and feel like poo

  • To learn and not just follow rules

  • Access to a health care practitioner, not just someone at a desk, a call center, a coach in a box, or a “boss babe.”

  • To not only look good, but FEEL good, too. 

  • More than just weight loss, although that may be a part of your healing need.

  • To know what to eat for YOUR body and YOUR lifestyle for the long term. 

  • To waste less energy on trying to figure out the conflicting online advice

  • Mindset support that goes along with living a healthy life

  • Access to alternative approaches to health and wellness that includes nutritional therapy, homeopathy, mental health, mindset, spiritual health, relational health, nutrition, and fitness. 

  • Someone to recommend therapeutic supplements and foods to support your body

And that’s exactly what you’ll find working with me.

You are not the same person you were 10, 15, 20 years ago are you? Time is ticking away.

You crave more for yourself.

You are looking to find the root cause of your unwanted health issues so that you can let your body heal. Maybe it is that you see yourself falling down the path of a parent’s health concerns and disease scares the living scnikeys out of you because you know how that path ends.

Or maybe you know what to do, but you get stuck when life comes at you hard and the habits you don’t want to do sneak in resulting in the all-talk-no-action.

You may have realized that YOU are the biggest roadblock to your health and wellness desires. You have blindspots that hinder the view of what is really going on. That’s when you need the eyes, the ears, and the professional eyes of Danielle to take care of you while you’re taking on the world.

It’s time to give yourself permission

 to step into your roles in life wholly by investing the time and money it takes to get yourself on the path to healing, restoring the body’s needs, and living abundantly not being held back by your body’s symptoms or size.

Living abundantly in a way that honors God, yourself, your family, and the many other roles in life requires an intensive, high-level approach to ensure changes take place and stay. You even crave this intensity collaboration over your wellness.

I’ve learned so much in the past 6 years of my own health and wellness. I’ve tried all the things you have. I’ve attended bootcamps, courses, and finally when I had the opportunity to hand over the responsibility of my health and wellness to professionals I felt free. I didn’t have to know it all and then implement it all at once. This high level intensive mentorship I entered into provided me boundaries with myself that ensured I was cared for.

And you know what? My children got the best parts of me. My husband got a wife with renewed energy and not exhausted at the end of the day… let’s be real who wants to be around grumpy, fatigued, over caffeinated people at the end of the day?

I went back to school to learn how to provide not just a weight loss service, but a ROOT CAUSE medicine approach for my patients.

We look at your symptoms and determine which systems and organs are struggling. Then we take you through the foundations of wellness, ensuring you’re fueling your body well, supporting the body’s systems, organs, and cells.

Sometimes we recommend certain foods, that scientific evidence proves, that support your body’s needs. Other times we may offer supplements and therapeutic nutrients to support your body’s innate intelligence when it comes to healing.

You may have heart disease in your family lineage, like I do and you want to prevent it or reduce your chances of falling prey to such a horrible disease. You may have other unwanted symptoms like:

  • Digestive issues 
  • Reflux/GERD
  • Bloating/gas
  • Constipation/diarrhea
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Anxiety/depression
  • Skin issues
  • Cholesterol imbalance
  • Blood sugar imbalance
  • Gut health conerns
  • Period problems
  • Fertility concerns
  • Low libido
  • Inability to lose weight/maintain
  • Inability to gain weight/maintain
  • Thyroid imbalances

Or whatever else makes you just feel “off.”

If you’ve read this far, I know you’re not a sit around and watch kinda person. You know there is another way and that way doesn’t mean you have to suffer with symptoms the rest of your life. This is why I opened my clinic to offer you in person and virtual health and wellness. 

Because you deserve more than 10-15 minutes with your practitioner.

Because you deserve to have access to priority care.

Because you deserve to live life abundantly, not held back by your body’s size nor health symptoms.

You're invited to work with me!

Frequently Asked Questions

Dr. Danielle is a traditional naturopathic doctor, sitting for boards with the American Naturopathic Medical Association in August of 2024.  She does not have a license to practice as her home state of Ohio does not recognize traditional naturopaths currently thus a license is unavailable to her. 

Dr. Danielle is happy to work with all of your healthcare providers. Due to the complex challenges confronting all of us who seek health and well-being, we believe that everyone can benefit from having a naturopathic doctor on their healthcare team. We also understand the complexity of disease and are knowledgeable about when to refer to specialists when a situation is outside of our training or scope of practice. Additionally, being that we are not providing primary care at this time in the state of Ohio, it is essential that you continue working with your primary care provider (MD, DO, NP, PA, etc.) for the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions. Additionally, Dr. Danielle often refers to other providers such as acupuncturists, chiropractors, and physical therapists.

Naturopathic doctors are not currently licensed to prescribe medications in Ohio. Dr. Danielle can order many functional medicine tests and other labs. Additionally, she will often suggest that you order specific labs from your primary care doctor and bring in your results for review.

Most patients work with Dr. Danielle for a minimum of 6 months and up to a year depending on their individual situation. Often, patients stay with her long-term, checking in annually or on an as-needed basis when problems arise.

Due to the lack of licensure in the state of Ohio Dr. Danielle is unable to accept insurance at this time. However, supplement, labs, and consultation costs may be reimbursed through health savings accounts (HSA), flexible spending accounts (FSA), and some health shares. It is helpful to call your insurance provider for more specific information.

Whether someone is seeking preventive health or has an acute or chronic condition, everyone can benefit from working with a naturopathic doctor and/or having a naturopathic doctor as part of their healthcare team.

Dr. Danielle specializes in blood sugar, insulin resistance, metabolism, most areas of heart health, thyroid, and helps manage other health concerns as well. If you’re curious please feel free to email her and ask: hello@cryinginmycheesecake.com. 

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process. The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods.

An NTP is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. Aria is trained by the Nutritional Therapy Association and also Dr. Danielle’s coaching methods. An NTP is able to support root cause healing via using foods to support your body. 

NTPs are trained to support optimal function of the body by assessing and addressing the health of the diet, digestive system, blood sugar regulation system, fatty acid status, mineral balance, and hydration levels.
