My name is Dr. Suman (pronounced Simone). I have my own Health Coaching practice at Medicinal Nutrition DR, LLC
I have a doctorate in nutrition (clinical/medical). I am also a certified health coach, weight management specialist, and my training was specialized in working with overweight and obese individuals from all walks of life.
I have been a health professional for ten plus years and I have been offering health education for about the same time. I am very passionate about health and wellness and feel deeply sad when I see individuals struggling to become healthy and therefore resorting to diet fads or worse, struggling in silence. I think that knowledge is power only when you use it! Therefore, I decided to use my clinical and medical knowledge, education, and certification's to coach other like minded individuals about health and wellness.
We all need a coach or a guide who can allow us to thrive and shine while, helping us navigate the rough waters effortlessly. In these times, while it may be easy to "google" something and find answers you may want to hear, not all of these answers are authentic or individualized for your personal health needs. Having a coach, guide, a support system, and an accountability factor all bundled in one, now, I doubt google can do that for you:) I pride in being compassionate, empathetic, and patient- all the qualities you may need in a mentor and a health professional!
I hope I am able to connect with you and share my passion for health and wellness while, at the same time, educate you and empower your journey!
I am also trained as a life coach, weight management specialist, and a mindfulness/meditation instructor-educator. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions before you wish to get started.

I had the pleasure of having Dr. Suman as an instructor for a nutritional class while attending a university. At the time I was a non-traditional student. Although students in the class were at different levels of understanding the subject material, Dr. Suman made sure EVERY STUDENT understood what was being taught. I feel blessed to have had Dr. Suman as an instructor.+ Read More
Working with Dr. Suman has been a much bigger help than I had ever imagined. I had heard that she used nutrition to help some individuals cope with or even stop the effects of various illnesses. I personally was having digestive issues and very consistent heart burn most days. After a few minor changes in diet my heart burn has completely subsided. As far as my digestion, i was told at a young age I have IBS. After changing my diet, my digestion has drastically improved and foods that use to irritate me every time I eat them have started to become more tolerable which is huge! If you are frustrated by health issues and don't want to submit to multiple pills as an answer I'd without a doubt suggest Dr. Suman. She may just be able to heal you with simple nutritional changes and no matter what you do with her you will lead a better, healthier lifestyle because of it.+ Read More
Dr. Suman is amazing. I first encountered her my freshman year of college. I absolutely loved and appreciated her teaching style. She not only made sure we received the information but that we also established the core values needed to retain the information for years to come. She taught me how to understand the body and how it works when breaking down nutrients, a skill that has saved my life. Fours years ago, I gave birth to a very critically ill child, and it was many lessons that suman taught me that helped me master keeping my daughters weight and kcal count under control.
In simple words, I love and appreciate this women, and would sit in a class of hers again.
The value you will gain by learning from Dr. Suman cannot really be summed up in a limited review. You are going to learn aspects of nutrition that you never would have thought of. She will breakdown “fad” diets, give you and understanding of what a sustainable rounded nutrition should look like and equip you with all of the necessary tools to take control of your life. Put good in and you get good out. I challenge you to learn from Dr. Suman, I guarantee she will teach you at least 5 things you had never known before regardless of your level of knowledge in wellness and nutrition. On top of all of this knowledge, you will not meet a person more kind, authentic and down to earth. She is invaluable, so take that lesson from her and watch yourself grow!+ Read More
Going through cancer made me hypersensitive about everything that I ate. Dr. Suman looked at my binder of blood tests and other health information together with my lifestyle to help me with my individualized nutritional needs. She helped me navigate through the massive amounts of “nutrition and diet” information on the web to help me understand fact from fiction.
Since working with her I have been receiving more compliments on my complexion and overall looks of good health. I give Dr. Suman the credit. If you have a problem, she works tirelessly to find the answer.
Dr. Suman has been a great guide and mentor! Not only in health and nutrition but I life. Such a informed and knowledgeable person. She continues to set and raise standards, a person that poses a passionate and driven desire to better educate people!

Dr. Suman is an amazing person who loves helping people to achieve their health goals. I hope I will always have Dr. Suman as my personal health coach.+ Read More
In the prior year I had emergency surgery. I had two feet of my colon removed and wore a ilestomy bag for 5 months, followed by breast surgery and finally had a loop ileostomy reversal. I had just turned 40 and my health was that of someone in there 60's or 70's. Prior to the surgeries I knew I was sick but didnt know what was going on and neither did my Doctor or the Hospital staff so they sent me home week after week with pain meds only to add to the destruction of my stomach. The staff and surgery team said Im lucky to be alive. I have severe diverticuli disease with gastroparisis. With Dr. Suman's help I was able to change my thinking through meditation.

Below is an excerpt from a letter of recommendation I wrote for Dr. Suman. I have had the pleasure of working with her for six years. My comments:
Because of Suman's ability to relate to students, her teaching evaluations have been stellar. I have had the privilege of hearing from many of her students about her classes. I have repeatedly heard that students enjoy her classes and learn a lot from her. I even had one colleague who attended her class meetings (with Suman's permission) because of how much he recognized he could learn from her vast knowledge of nutrition. This colleague/student was the chair of the Wellness major.
Dr. Suman is a wonderful individual who is passionate about health and nutrition. She is a great motivator and very knowledgeable in her field. She cares about what she teaches and how it is recieved. She is a great instructor, who will give the necessary information to set any person up for success.
