Functional Nutrition Consultant

In high school, my mother passed away with an autoimmune condition known as idiopathic Lupus erythematosus. Her doctors did not know the cause and experimented on her with drugs, surgery and radiation. It didn’t work out for her in the end.  From that day on, I set out on a quest to uncover the root causes to many of today’s health issues, then natural solutions to address those causes.  

I attended U.C Berkeley, and doubled majored in Molecular & Cell Biology and Psychology.  After I graduated, I worked as a pharmaceutical sales representative for 5 years where I taught medical doctors about Drug to Drug interactions, adverse side effects, and withdrawal syndrome caused by many commonly prescribed pharmaceutical medications.

Once I realized that chemical based medicines have inherent risks and do nothing to correct nutritional deficiencies, I left my role as a pharmaceutical sales representative. I found Functional Nutrition could help me resolve my own personal health issues (allergies, asthma, poor digestion and adrenal fatigue). From that day on, I became dedicated to learning how to help others to rebuild their body and organs with genuine replacement building blocks that can only be found from food & herbs. I found how to address the root causes to many health issues, including that which my mother was diagnosed with. 

I’m certified by the American Association of Nutritional Consultants (AANC). I completed a Masters Degree in Business Administration and a Masters Degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition. I lecture nationally to natural health practitioners on the application of Functional nutrition and herbs to restore human health. I am a guest lecturer at the top Traditional Chinese Medicine Universities and Chiropractic Colleges and I am the author of The Pharmaceutical Myth book. I am an Advanced Nutrition Response Testing® practitioner. I also have trained hundreds of natural health practitioners in Northern California and even mentored many of them at the Waterman Chiropractic Center in San Ramon, CA.

My family and I receive regular chiropractic, acupuncture and enjoy the outdoors because when we look to nature and support the innate healing ability of the human body, health is a result, naturally.

I’m on a mission to help as many people be healthy and happy.  I look forward to supporting you and your family to acheiving your health goals.

Yours in health,

Gerald Roliz, CNC, MBA, MSACN

Results matter

From our clients


After starting my nutrition program, my menstrual and back cramps are much less intense and for a shorter duration of time. The nutrition & herbs also helped with my sinus allergies and headaches that have plagued me for years. They’re now greatly reduced!

Jamie K.

I developed muscle spasms and eye twitching after a medical procedure at a hospital. The doctors there wanted me to take more drugs. I decided on a different route and found my home for wellness. No more muscle spasms. No more eye twitching. I highly recommend!

Makaela M.

The practitioners were able to explain to me in detail what’s going on with my body and how my diet has caused a large part of my health issues. My fatigue and lack of energy was due to many chemicals from work, building up within my body. I highly recommend this place!!! The staff is very friendly. These people are awesome!

Robert D.

I had the worst digestion ever. Had to use a bathroom without notice at random times during the day. Upon the initial consult, I knew which foods were causing the issue and my digestion has been flawless ever since. My belly has also shrunk too! Great people. Great place.

Bill H.

I tell people that Gerald is a wizard. Right after the first consultation, he found things that specialists at Standard, UCSF, Palo Alto Medical Foundation missed. My migraines are gone and my digestion is finally fixed. I feel amazing!

Functional Nutrition

We create a designed clinical nutrition program specific to you by using supplements designed from whole food to help the body to be able to heal itself. Therapeutic doses of food are muscle tested against your body to prove efficacy, ability to be digested, and compatibility with your body.

Functional Blood Chemistry

We offer a Comprehensive Wellness Blood Panel. It includes a complete iron panel, thyroid panel, CMP, CBC, Lipids, Cardiovascular markers, Vitamin D and a few others most medical doctors overlook. We test, so that you don’t have to guess.

Hormone Testing

We offer salivary hormone testing which enables us to gather accurate free hormone levels in the tissues. We can also measure that in the blood (what is in transport) or metabolites in the urine (what was excreted). Testing all three is ideal, but salivary hormone levels is the most clinically relevant. We test, so you don’t have to guess.

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

A non invasive test we prefer for children to adults to pets. We can detect mineral ratios that provide insight to systemic health and assess the body’s current activity of heavy metal elimination.

Nutrition Response Testing

Nutrition Response Testing® is a non invasive form of muscle response testing that allows us to assess the underlying cause of ill health. It is deeply rooted in physics and is accurate. Nutrition Response Testing® also provides real time results. Once we identify what is causing your body so much stress we eliminate the problem safely and naturally by using specific whole food, herbal and homeopathic remedies.

Heart Sound Recorder

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is confirmed that the heart eats first. Any nutritional deficiencies that exist in the heart exist everywhere in the body. Heart Sound Recordings allow us to identify how well or not well the valves in your heart are working. The Heart Sound Recorder allows us to assess stress in the heart muscle and guide us to support healthy rate, rhythm and tone.

Bioscan SRT

The Bioscan SRT (Stress Reduction Treatment) combines the disciplines of Acupuncture, Bioscan and homeopathy. A computerized scan is performed to record the reaction of your body to various stressors. Once the stressors are identified, your practitioner can quickly create a customized protocol to help this out of balance condition and put you on the path to an efficient and balanced state.

Ionic Foot Detox

The process of removing toxic elements like heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives, & other chemicals from the body is naturally performed in the body by the liver, kidneys, & skin. There are more than 2000 sweat glands and 4000 pores in the feet, and detoxifying footbaths have been used in Ayurvedic and Eastern traditions for thousands of years to draw impurities out of the body through the processes of osmosis and diffusion. 

Reconnective Healing

Reconnective Healing is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reconnective Healing practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a “universal energy” is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.
