Why Us

A lot of people are unsure how to best feed themselves. 

We guide them through today's nutritional jungle and help them simply and successfully become

happier and healthier.

HI THERE . . . We're Alicia and Brenda, co-founders of In Balance Lifestyle Management. 

What do you get when you partner a still-teaching PhD Botanist (Alicia), raised in Mexico City (with the mad Mexican cuisine cooking skills to show for it), and passionate about digestion and gut health . . . 

. . . with a former social worker (Brenda), who loves exploring emotional connections to food and who has been advocating a none-one-size-diet-fits-all approach long before "vegan" or "keto" became household words?

A whole lot of simple to understand and put into practice yet multi-layered steps to a healthier life!

Cookie Cutters are for Baking Not Diets.

With our use of metabolic typing surveys, careful evaluation of what you are already doing well and--with our PureGenomics training--even review of your raw DNA data from Ancestry or 23andme . . . 

you'll discover a personalized way to eat, exercise, supplement and be your best YOU!
