Donna Galarza's Story

In my early medical years, working in hospitals, I observed autopsies revealing disease states and blood samples with unidentified artifacts with no real medical explanation. Extensive training with pathologists gave me the insight of the human body, which many nutrition focused health professionals have not been privileged to witness.


Blood observed through microscopy revealed a true picture of the patient’s health. Their ailments were undeniable and completely astonishing to see. Many years later, the pieces of the health puzzle came together.


I realized that we often have the power to change our health once we understand it.


In light of my educational journey, I have the ability to comprehensively and holistically address my client’s medical needs through nutrition. My medical nutritional practice is supported by evidence-based research. Often I receive ‘answers’ from simple micronutrient or genetic analysis to support patient care.


This field is now called ‘Functional Medicine” but I have been practicing this way for over 30 years. I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your way to better health!

I also participate in nutritional outreach in various communities to educate and empower individuals to take charge of their diet and nutritional behaviors.

Take control of your immune health, naturally!

Donna's Philosophy

It is the goal of this practice to ascertain all areas of functional medicine, to create a long term wellness plan to address specific patient needs. One must understand the mosaic of health, that all systems function in conjunction with each other.

To realize optimal health is to harmonize all facets of functional medicine.


Welcome to Back to Basics Nutrition.

The goal of this practice is to achieve the best Nutrition possible for each patient consulting with Nutritionist Donna Galarza, CN. While I am not a Medical Doctor, I am able to measure Laboratory values that concern Health and Nutrition.


These Diagnostic Laboratories are FDA approved for testing. At no time, is there any pressure to submit to testing. Testing allows for more specific information to be analyzed. To utilize this testing, a patient does not have to have known medical issues, but if there are diagnosis of medical conditions, it is imperative that the patient be under the care of a medical doctor.


The Health information that is uncovered in this office is for educational purposes as to help correct any deficiencies that are measured. It truly is an honor to help each patient in their quest for health.


As you embark on the journey to Nutritional Wellness, I ask that you be patient with yourself to allow the body to make a lifestyle change and hopefully a higher level of function.


 Yours in health,


Donna Galarza, C.N.
