If you're struggling with a hormone imbalance or a related women’s health issue, please know that it's absolutely possible to restore your health through nutrition.

I am a former pharmacist turned licensed dietitian-nutritionist, Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner, and the founder of Pooja Mahtani Wellness, a virtual functional nutrition practice specializing in women's health.
I hold a Doctorate in Pharmacy and a Master’s in Human Nutrition along with extensive training in Functional Nutrition from the Institute for Functional Medicine.

I'm so happy you're here.

In fact, I believe that food can be the single most powerful clinical intervention for hormone health.

The reason I'm so confident in this healing approach is because, like you, I've also struggled with my hormonal health and wellbeing.

I was struggling with significant weight gain, hair loss, digestive issues, acne, cycle irregularities, and incredible fatigue. I had seen a myriad of practitioners and was prescribed several medications to help manage these symptoms. Although I experienced some relief, I still did not feel optimal.

In 2011, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome, commonly known as PCOS, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and irritable bowel syndrome.

Dr. Pooja's Story

Our bodies truly have the most astonishing ability to heal. If you give your body the raw ingredients it needs to perform its job, it will take care of you in return.

The most important lesson that I've learned along this healing journey? 

It was at this very point that I stumbled across the science of functional nutrition. This type of practice instantly resonated with me.

Following the principles of functional nutrition, I began to notice a dramatic difference in my body. The weight almost instantly fell off, my acne and digestive issues cleared, my hair loss reduced, my cycles normalized, and my energy levels drastically improved. Most surprisingly, my liver scan came back completely normal. And while not everyone may experience these same results, to my disbelief, I was also able to come off my prescription medication (it’s so important that you keep your physician involved and that you discuss with him or her any modifications that you would like to make to your medication regimen).

Determined to get to the root of my health issues, I set out on an eight-year long journey to study the latest scientific research, learn the importance of nutrition, and find my way back to health through extensive trial and error.
