Andréa Evans Rochester, New York Nutritionist
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 Interstitial Cystitis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome 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.
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.
