Hi, my name is Anup Kanodia, MD, MPH. As a classically trained physician, it did not take me long to realize that my initial medical school training was not enough for me to fundamentally help people achieve true, long lasting health. Early in my residency, I began to notice that the symptom/drug approach worked for acute problems, such as severe bacterial infections and heart attacks, but this model was fundamentally flawed for chronic health conditions.
It did not and does not work. The reason this model is inadequate is because it is entrenched in dispensing pharmaceuticals that often have severe side effects and not in how to search for the “root” cause and treat the person, not just their symptom. This realization turned my world upside down and forced me to ask myself these two questions, “Is this what it means to be a doctor?” and “Do I just want to write prescriptions all day long to camouflage symptoms?” For me, the answer was an absolute “No.” And so began my journey and another three years of medical training that introduced me to the world of Alternative and Functional training. It was during this time that I found the answers that were missing.
I learned how to help people get to the root cause of a myriad of different illnesses such as chronic fatigue, allergies, recurrent infections, depression and irritable bowel. I learned how stress could destroy a person’s health and that yeast overgrowth is the silent demon robbing thousands of people of their health. For the undiagnosed that had tried everything, I learned that there were solutions.
It was in this body of work that my patients began to get well, stay well and live well. My original passion in medicine took on a whole new meaning and my mission was now clear: dig for the root cause, identify it, treat it and eliminate it. This process is the key to help people transform their health and empower them to live the joyful life they were meant to live. In my free time, I enjoy staying up on any new research into medical diagnoses and treatment options to offer my patients. I also enjoy traveling both near and far and I am a huge fan of the Cleveland Browns, Indians, Cavaliers and a Buckeye at heart.

Education and Training: Undergraduate studies at Miami University (Oxford, Ohio) with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Health and a concentration in Nutrition
Dietetic Internship: Adagio Health (Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania) with an emphasis in community nutrition and entrepreneurship
Hello, my name is Lauren Arnett, RDN, LD. My passion in nutrition stems from my undergraduate studies at Miami University Oxford, Ohio in kinesiology and nutrition that allowed me to travel to Africa and explore nutrition education research. This is where I found my inspiration in the field of dietetics that brought a spark to my life. My career mission is bringing creativity and excitement into food in simple ways along with pairing exercise into our busy lives. I find enjoyment in being active in my own life through yoga, running half-marathons, workout classes, and walking in the park. I also enjoy traveling, cooking, and watching football on the weekends. Go Bengals & Buckeyes!
I completed my Dietetic Internship at Adagio Health in Pennsylvania where I received multiple opportunities in the community, clinical and food service settings to expand my experience in the profession of dietetics. My prior experiences have required that I work effectively with diverse groups, and that I am able to alter my knowledge to the needs of specific populations while emphasizing the importance of compassion for the patient. My ability to adapt to situations along with proving exceptional time management and organizational skills have prepared me to complete tasks in a variety of environments to deliver quality holistic care. After completion of this program I continued to promote healthy living through a youth development organization in Columbus, Ohio.
I am motivated and excited to create for you a functional medicine nutrition plan that is achievable, and I will support you throughout the journey. I welcome the opportunity to assist you in reaching your health goals.
Lauren has a great background in nutrition and was good at helping me to find a variety of foods to avoid vitamin and mineral deficits. She also does a wonderful job of coming up with innovative and interesting recipes that made the restrictions seem less boring and confining. Her support and knowledge made such a difference.MOC

Licensed Practical Nurse
Nicole Altman, LPN
Licensed Practical Nurse
Hi, my name is Angel “Nicole” Altman. I’ve worked in almost every aspect of nursing over the past 18+yrs starting as a Nurse’s aide right out of high school in 1993 and then going on to complete the Licensed Practical Nurse Program in 1997. I’ve found working in a medical office to be the most rewarding. And that is where I have chosen to hang my hat. I enjoy getting to know my patients, forming a relationship, and being able to follow them through their healthcare journey. I strive to make sure my patients get the information they need to help them understand their condition. I’m always on the hunt for new information about my own health, and I like to be able to assist others in that same endeavor. I’ll be the one discussing your testing instructions, answering your emails and calls, drawing blood, and helping you with supplements. I look forward to meeting you and assisting on your journey!
Education and Training:
Real Estate License: State of Ohio
Certification in business accounting and auditing: Moorpark College
Hi, my name is Deb Whitney. I started my career in California as a certified public accountant and auditor before moving back home to Ohio. Once in Ohio I took a job at a medical center working as a glorified patient advocate providing comfort and support to patients. I handle patient complaints and worked as the liaison between the doctor and patient. During this time my husband began his own business and I slowly transitioned out of the medical field into Office Manger for Plush Interiors. Working office administration is a passion of mine. I like seeing things in black and white and having one answer. It also provides me with the opportunity to connect with people on a regular basis. I take pleasure in being the first voice you hear or face you see when you walk through the door. This passion led me into getting my real estate license, which I practice in my spare time. I have enthusiasm for horseback riding, reading and cooking and enjoy spending time with my family. My husband and I are huge Note Dame fans (good, bad or ugly) and try to make it out to at least one game a year. Whenever I have a chance to travel I head for the beach. It is a place for me to relax and be at peace with the world.
