"Good news! I just had a follow up xray on my kidneys and urine test and they found no evidence of kidney stones at this time! Thank you!" -FEMALE CLIENT

"Hey Ellen! I keep meaning to email you! Been so busy! Your fault for helping me get so healthy! So far everything is the same. Still losing weight :) " -FEMALE CLIENT (MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL)

"I have known Ellen Harris as a friend for twenty years. Last summer I found myself needing her professional services. I had been suffering from an increasingly aggressive form of atopic dermatitis for four years. It had spread all over my face, neck, and arms. I was miserable. Allergists and dermatologists had been misdiagnosing it and treating it with injections and salves that only addressed the symptoms (and poorly at that), but never the sources causing the inflammation. My wife suggested that I approach Ellen to see if a change in diet might help. I met with her, and she arranged for me to take the MRT-LEAP blood test. The results came back, showing that I had sensitivities to various foods and food additives. With Ellen's assistance, I then went on the MRT-LEAP Immuno-calm Diet. After four weeks on a strict diet, my dermatitis was nearly gone. In the weeks that followed, I gradually added low-risk foods back into my diet. I am now nearly rash-free, and am able to keep my dermatitis almost completely in-check by means of controlling what foods I eat. I will always be grateful to Ellen for the assistance she offered me in alleviating my extreme discomfort." -MALE CLIENT, COMPOSER

Nutrition Counseling

(617) 901-6904

Ellen Harris is a Licensed Dietitian / Integrative Nutritionist in private practice, helping people learn to manage a number of conditions, including diabetes, food sensitivities, metabolic syndrome, and their weight. She has over fifteen years of experience in the nutrition field and takes medical insurance."

"I treat people who are ready to make a change. I can work with anyone who needs support to make that change. It's not uncommon to see someone with a cluster of conditions; for example, diabetes, high cholesterol, Hashimoto's thyroiditis (hypothyroid), arthritis, and acid reflux. I also treat people with food sensitivities who may suffer from any combination of symptoms including skin issues, headaches, fibromyalgia, and food related discomfort (even if it's difficult to tell that food might be contributing). People are often hopeful and excited during and following the process. The results can be very life changing in a positive way."

"Food sensitivities, a common cause of many hard-to-diagnose chronic conditions affect an estimated 15-20% of the population. For some people, it may be appropriate to get tested for food sensitivities. As a Certified LEAP Therapist, I offer LEAP MRT© testing to help identify which foods and chemicals might be triggering your symptoms, and help you interpret the results and develop a personal safe food plan. I also work with SpectraCell micronutrient testing to see if there are nutrient deficiencies, whether caused by absorption issues, medication interference, or simply dietary choices--and help you pinpoint ways to remedy them."

What makes my approach to this work unique?
Through my background in the arts (as a former illustrator and art teacher), I understand the potential of relating through visual and emotional intuition. Clients are guided to Pinterest boards with photos to inspire them or I might send a text message with specific food ideas, connecting with great healthy food & recipe sites and videos."

Ellen's training includes a nutrition residency at Children's Hospital Medical Center in Boston and more recently, the Advanced Practice Program for Nutritional Professionals at the Joslin Diabetes Center. Her approach begins with integrative and functional nutrition, drawing some ideas from macrobiotics and some from herbology, all of which adds dimension to her practice.

Ellen's prior work experience includes Nutrition Program Manager/ Dietitian at Hanscom AFB Health and Wellness Center; and nutritionist at Newton-Wellesley Hospital Diabetes Self-Management Program, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation Center; and the Massachusetts General Hospital Weight Center.
