"It is more important to know what person has the disease, than what disease the person has."

There are two dietitians at Health Takes Guts, Inc.

Dianne Rishikof, MS, RDN, LDN, IFNCP and Tori Nelson, RDN, LDN

Both see clients one on one to help them regain their health. See below for both practitioner bios.

Tori Nelson, RDN, LDN is a Registered Dietitian and Licensed Nutritionist, specializing in gut and digestive health for Dianne Rishikof Nutrition, Health Takes Guts® (found at She graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Nutrition & Dietetics from Simmons College. Tori's post graduate experience in nutrition includes training with Dianne in integrative and functional nutrition as well as using her knowledge in a variety of different populations some of which include, eating disorders, hospital clinical, and pediatrics. Tori is currently in pursuit of a Master's degree to advance her knowledge as a dietitian.

Tori's interest in Nutrition stems from her very active lifestyle and realization that what we put in our bodies has a profound effect on our health. After suffering for too long with bowel irregularity, bloating, chronic fatigue, and recurrent mouth ulcers Tori was diagnosed with IBS. With no help from conventional GI doctors Tori knew there must be other solutions. Doing research on her own to find answers led her to integrative and functional nutrition, a philosophy that aims to uncover the root cause of disease. It has become Tori's passion to help others suffering that have had no luck with conventional therapies who are left with nowhere to turn. She believes that through the correct holistic and alternative therapies and the right diet, she can treat the root of digestive issues to improve the health of her clients and help them achieve long-term wellness
