CALMERme

Welcome to CALMERme, a functional nutrition and lifestyle medicine practice. My name is Ruth Baillie and I’m a registered nutritional therapist, researcher, cancer guide and educator.

My focus at CALMERme is to help you explore what factors have led to your current health situation and risk of chronic disease.  We will do this by looking at your diet, lifestyle, genetics, history, environment and through some testing. With this information, I will support you to make changes to improve your health and wellbeing.

I work with a lot of cancer patients – both during treatment and after treatment, and with those at high risk of cancer.  But I also work with people with other diagnoses or who don’t know what is going on, but just know that things are out of balance.

My approach is personalized to you.  You are different from everyone else and your path to where you are today is unique. So I take the time to get to know you and your health history and family history. We look at your genetics, your environment, your microbiota, your physiology. And then we look at your lifestyle, activity, stress, sleep, emotions, and connections.  

I have Masters degrees in both Personalized Nutrition and Health Psychology. Before I worked in this field, I was a research pharmacologist and toxicologist, so bring that knowledge into my practice as well. I am registered with BANT and CNHC, and a certified professional cancer coach and guide.

I see clients in Northern California and also use Zoom (HIPAA compliant) to help clients all over the world. Take a look around the website to learn more about my approach, and join me on Facebook or Pinterest.  When you are ready to take the next step towards improved health, please get in touch with me and make an appointment/free introductory chat.
