“The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” – Ann Wigmore

Summer Waters, LAc, NTP, CGP, is powerfully committed to guiding individuals who want to feel better and have more energy to understand what foods heal their bodies and how to make those foods a part of their daily lives, so they can find freedom from disease and discomfort while experiencing increased energy to live the lives of their dreams! 

If you are looking for a proven health professional who can guide you to address chronic health conditions (physical, mental and emotional), or simply to feel more fully alive and at home in your body, you’ve come to the right place.  With close to a decade of experience supporting wonderful clients in achieving success with these and other concerns, my mission and commitment is to listen to the story of your health journey, provide you with realistic suggestions for diet and lifestyle change, and support you in implementing these suggestions so that you can transform your health and life. 

My path to becoming a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner began when I developed multiple chronic health conditions and could not find relief through Western medicine.  Though skeptical, I was persuaded to try acupuncture, and the benefits I experienced inspired me to complete my Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine and travel to Hangzhou, China to deepen my skills.  Like most of us, I was raised on a Standard American Diet (a SAD diet indeed) of highly processed foods, so the nutritional philosophies of Traditional Chinese Medicine intrigued me.  My own healing journey eventually lead me to pursue certification and training from the Nutritional Therapy Association and then on to become one of the first class of Certified Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) Practitioners, studying directly with the creator of this amazing healing protocol, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. 

Clients say remarkable things about the impact my work has had on their quality of life: 

We have learned that (a) healthy diet is not what we thought it was, and yet healthy diet is at the foundation of healthy living, especially for children. We thank Summer for being bold and pointing us down a road to good health and relief from health problems, even when we did not wish to listen. Her gentle guidance has saved us and our children from untold pain and suffering. Thank you Summer for being the lighthouse in a stormy world of health information.”
-Dave and Brenda Salch, Sam's Valley, OR

Summer is thorough, caring, and so knowledgeable - above and beyond any practitioner I’ve gone to before.  She’s a wealth of information about (health) resources as well.” 
-Dr. Jodine Turner, Medford, OR

She gave me very practical advice and also educated me about ways that I can manage my health care. Not only did she give me nutritional support, but she also introduced me to a whole philosophy of health based on sustainable agriculture and cooking. She was very generous in her knowledge and time. I highly recommend her as a person and health practitioner." 
-Kathy Deforest, PhD, Ashland, OR

What I loved about Summer's nutritional guidance is that she met me where I was at the time. She gave me practical, simple changes to make, including recipes and resources to gently guide me to the path of better health. Thanks to her understanding and genuine care, I am healthier than I have been in the past twenty years.”
-G.F., Doula, Medford, OR

I am so honored to help so many great people. It is amazing to watch as individuals take back their health, after having come to me sick and depressed, convinced that nothing can be done or that they are doomed to a life filled with pain and medications.  Similar benefits await you when you decide to invite me to serve you and your family in the powerful ways I can support your health and wellness. 

The foods, books and supplements I recommend are the ones that I have researched diligently over years of practice and have tested on myself when appropriate.  The passion you hear in my voice as I speak about the importance of high-quality, nutrient-dense, traditional foods is the passion of someone who has experienced profound transformation in my own state of well-being by using these tools in my life. My insatiable curiosity coupled with a belief in independent thinking leads me to rigorously examine multiple viewpoints.  I then utilize the essence of what I have distilled from medical literature, top health advisors, as well as my clinical and personal experiences to benefit individual clients and participants in my programs and classes.
