I'm Susan Gleaton, Registered Dietitian, trained in Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy.
I'm also a digestion detective.
That means I'm a big nerd. And I love a good mystery. So when a client comes to me with digestive issues that leave even their doctor scratching his head, I love to dig in and work my magic.
I analyze labs, food sensitivity testing, symptoms, and even my client's "gut feelings" — pun intended — so I can figure out why you have troublesome symptoms in the first place. When you focus on the root cause of the problem, you open the door to real solutions that improve your symptoms — for good!
If you struggle with digestive symptoms like...
- Cyclic vomiting
- Chronic constipation and/or diarrhea
I'm Susan and I have a mission.
My practice is dedicated to helping my clients find the root cause of their symptoms, improve their digestion, and get back to living their lives.
I was a registered dietitian. And then I wasn't. And then I was again. Let me explain...
After becoming a registered dietitian back in the day, I let my RD license lapse for 26 years while I homeschooled 6 kids, ran my farm, and managed organic food co-ops. I was all in on the organic lifestyle, learning to use nutritious food to improve health. We raised our own grass fed beef and pastured chicken and grew HUGE organic gardens.
While I was focused on my farm and my kids, I discovered first-hand how eating foods that meet your nutritional needs and avoiding the foods that cause inflammation can completely change your quality of life.
You see, I had my own health challenges to overcome...
I struggled with lifelong constipation, gas, and bloating. I even developed conditions associated with autoimmune disease. But through years of research I discovered a proven, evidence-based approach to normalize digestion, improve health, and boost energy to live an active and fulfilling life.
So when a local doctor put out a call for a holistic dietitian to help in her practice, I knew it was time to share my knowledge with others in my community.
So I re-certified as an RD and got to work in the doctor's office. I helped clients struggling with weight loss, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, and autoimmune conditions to improve their health so they could live better lives.
In order to work with a wider circle of doctors, clinics, and individuals, I now practice out of my North Texas office, conveniently located between Gainesville and Sherman, just north of Denton. I also offer virtual and phone consults with people anywhere in the United States.
What Sets Me Apart from Other Dietitians and Nutritionists?
I care about you.
I meet you where you're at without shame or judgment. I'll never hand you a plan without making sure I understand your needs, lifestyle, and limitations. Do you have financial or food availability restrictions? Are you in college? Do you travel a lot? Do you live with someone who sabotages your efforts to be well? Whatever your situation, we'll work together to find ways to improve your health.
I stay up-to-date.
I have an insatiable appetite for nutritional knowledge. I continue my education with training and certifications, cutting-edge books, reliable research, seminars, and courses. If I don't know how to best help you, I'll dig in and find out!
I am guided by honesty.
I will always tell you the truth. And if I don't think I'm the best person to help you, I'll do my best to guide you to someone who can. You are my priority and I am committed to your wellness journey. I remain loyal to my clients — through thick and thin — no matter what.
Susan gave me hope again, after years of thinking I had none. I found relief from the chronic diarrhea, better health overall, and am able to incorporate better food choices specific to my nutritional needs. I'm just in awe of how the food you put in your body determines so much of how you feel and how tremendously it affects your health.
I'm able to be more active in my daily life, with little to no fatigue and minimal pain. Most importantly, I don't live my life staring at my bathroom walls all day anymore. There are just not enough words to explain how grateful I am for Susan's knowledge and direction. I truly believe Susan saved and extended my life. I feel so different than I ever thought I could after being chronically ill for so many years. I feel happier, healthier and more alive than ever. Thank you, Thank you, a hundred times!~ Rae P.
