Food FX is a customizable balance tool , not based on restriction but on balance and bio-individuality. It consists of learning the functions foods play in the body in order to enhance natural system functioning, ultimately leading to greater health expression.

Wouldn't It Make Sense to Understand the Functions of Food?

Food is meant to FUEL the functioning of your body.  Wouldn't it make sense to understand the FUNCTIONS of the food?

Why are so many diagnosed diseases directly related to nutrition and yet we don't discuss food as first line therapy?  When healthy food and nourishment knowledge can be used to sustain and build healthy bodies, it would make sense that we would learn the very valuable information that food and plants contain.  We should know what food does inside our bodies, how each food functions, and helps our bodies to function.

Welcome to Food FX!

How Your Senses Make You Feel Better: Being Mindful To Be Mindful

The goal has been to STOP the multitasking training since birth and get real about being involved exactly and only on the task at hand.  I've been using my senses to involve every part of me, which is a great way to create memories, enjoy the experience more, glean more information, remember more, and connect the experience appropriately to how my nerves feel.  These sensory "cues" are what tells the vagus nerve how to respond...whether in preparation for stress and fight, or to remain calm and maintain the body.  80% of the efferent fibers of the Vagus Nerve come FROM THE GUT!

We must move the body into the Parasympathetic phase before eating and then stay there, being mindful during our meal so that the body is focused on the job at hand.  When we do so, we can assimilate our nutrients better, produce balanced acidity to break foods down, energize the body, and not cause stress and inflammation in the gut.  In short, everything works better.  Taking time to prepare the body for food and digestion goes a long way towards your experience of health.

Amanda Plevell, PhD has steered her Natural Health Business 15 years through ups and downs, including tumultuous personal and economic dips.  It has taught her a lot about the gift of adaptation and the perception of victimization. 

EVERYONE has to adapt now and I’ve had lots of practice.   I’m really in creative mode right now, intent on seeing a new, better “normal” and I have no doubt that we’re going to see some more previously pretty unimaginable innovations changing the world for us all.

"I was so sick and tired of being sick and tired!  Nothing worked, and I tried EVERYTHING!  DrFoodie's name says it all...RESULTS! Everything I did was online or by phone and made it simple for my schedule.   I can't say thank you enough!"


"I have never experienced anything like this.  I can't believe this simple knowledge is not common knowledge!  Learning Food Functions and Conceptual healing is a MUST."


"I felt in such a PRISON with restrictive up and down dieting.  I wanted better health, but I wasn't getting it anywhere.  Nourishment makes so much sense.  I loved how I was led through the lessons and could apply the information on my own, right away. It was SO easy!"
