5 Element Nutrition
Marcia Scully-Wollerman is a mother, nutritionist, education, intuitive healer and author. She encourages re-establishing the natural rhythm in the body rather than relying solely on willpower for well-being.
Raised on a mid-western farm, she has been intrigued by good nutrition since early childhood.
Her first training was in Secondary Education. After receiving her degree in 1971, she taught high school English for 15 years, while she began raising her children. During this time she began her Graduate Studies in Counseling. At a certain point in time, she felt she could help young adults in a more practical way if she got her Nutrition Degree and taught them how to care for their bodies. In 1988, she finished her Certification as a Nutrition Consultant from the American College of Holistic Nutrition.
Marcia chose Seasonal Nutrition as her emphasis. She went into private practice, helping hundreds of individuals and families restore the natural rhythm of the body through the stable, practical, natural science of Nutrition.
In the past eight years, she has updated her original degree work by doing additional study in areas of: Learning Disabilities, Women’s Health Issues, Sports Nutrition, Weight Management, and Metabolic Function.
Marcia has clients at her own office; and she sees clients at Health in Motion Physical Therapy on Fridays from 8:30 – 11:30 (by appointment only – 585-4642)
