Good food is wise medicine.

Begin your journey with a consultation.

Consults are the first step to see if Dr. Angela is able to help you! During a 30-minute consult, we will go over health history, present health status, medications, diagnoses, goals, and current lifestyle. After gathering all the info needed, Dr. Angela will determine if your case is one we can start on right away, if you need further testing for diagnostics, or if you need a referral. Once that determination is made, you get to decide where your journey is headed!

Individual Nutritional Counseling is perfect for anyone experiencing the following conditions:

  • High cholesterol
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Crohn’s/ Ulcerative Colitis
  • Lupus
  • Fibromyalgia

  • Hormone imbalance
  • Adrenal
  • Fatigue
  • Depression

Individual Counseling

Are you on medication? Is your health in trouble? Have you been diagnosed with conditions such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders, digestive distress, or hormone imbalance?

Individual Nutritional counseling is at the heart of what Dr. Angela does. Individual counseling is exactly what it sounds like: health restoration utilizing nutrition in a way that is unique to you and your case. Every body is unique, every lifestyle is unique, and no two patients’ journey are ever the same; therefore, Dr. Angela has created a foundation of principles that will ensure each and every patient is eating foods to optimize his/her health while also addressing their specific condition. Having an active diagnosis with or without associated medications means general lifestyle changes may not be enough. This is where certain food recommendations can help correct disease and its associated symptoms. However, once corrected and well-maintained, more general lifestyle recommendations can be adopted.

Individual nutritional counseling can be more of a marathon than a sprint. Dr. Angela will be working alongside you from the acute phases of correction to the transitions back into a general healthy lifestyle. We will work together to navigate the twists and turns that are distinct to you. Once all of your health information is gathered, diagnostics complete, and a choice to start the journey is made, you will receive nutritional guidelines for your condition and access to cookbooks and recipes Dr. Angela has created.

Feed your soul. Fuel your cells. Ensure a relationship with food, and experience a lifestyle that contributes to an amazing quality of life.

During your journey, you will you become a student, as well. Every meeting will have an important topic that is pertinent to your health. There will also be a piece of homework following every meeting that is intended to empower and teach you important information about your body, how it works, and what may have gone awry. By the time you are done, you will have new habits, abundant resources, and a deep understanding of what health means to you and your body.

Group Classes

Group classes are the most economical option for general nutrition information. These classes cover the basic concepts about which foods are healthy for us to consume and WHY. “Doing something because Dr. Angela said so is not a good reason!” These classes are typically 5 sessions total, 1 hour at a time, and are geared towards general health or weight loss.
This is a great option for:

  • Groups of 10-20 with a similar goal
  • Companies that would like to offer nutrition information to their clients or employees
  • Individuals who want a baby step into making lifestyle changes

Cooking Sessions

Need a little help in the kitchen? Let Dr. Angela work with you to fill in the gaps! Within one hour, we will create a meal from scratch, go over basic cooking techniques, and adapt options to your lifestyle. This is a great hands-on option for:

  • a beginner cook
  • someone who needs familiarization with new ingredients
  • anyone with allergy concerns (gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free, etc)
  • or someone who wants help expanding their food horizons

Speaking Engagements

One of Dr. Angela’s passions in life is teaching! She has been speaking for 8 years now, and feel as though any setting is a good setting! From rotary clubs and girls scout meetings to continuing education and key note convention speaking, you name it, Dr. Angela enjoys it. If you have an interest in learning more about health, wellness, or why lifestyle matters, an hour is enough to get you thinking! This is perfect for:

  • Service clubs
  • Continuing education credits
  • Health conventions
  • Corporate Wellness Programs
  • Student health classes

About Dr. Angela Lucterhand

Dr. Angela Lucterhand has been on a journey to discover the fundamentals of maintaining health for the past 14 years. She studied at Indiana University-Bloomington where she graduated with a BA in Criminal Justice/Premed and a minor in Biology. In addition to her studies in Bloomington, she was chosen as the youngest member of a group studying biology in Costa Rica, where her internal questions around health began to shift. In subsequent years, she travelled to Honduras in order to work with Cuban doctors in their clinics. Following graduation, her next step to medical school was put on hold. She decided to join the Peace Corps and work as a Health Education Specialist in Mali, W. Africa.

After returning to the United States, having seen health from many different perspectives, she decided a more alternative route of healthcare was where her passion flourished. She attended Palmer College of Chiropractic for her doctorate. While at Palmer, she taught labs including Anatomy, Histology, and the Central Nervous System. In addition to teaching, she was a radiology intern, a member of the Academic Standings Committee, Ethics Panel, Student International Chiropractic Association, and Indiana’s Chiropractic Association. Academically, she received the honor of being a member of the Pi Tau Delta society for academic excellence in addition to graduating as a Presidential Scholar. She graduated with honors as Magna Cum Laude. Despite being involved in so many learning opportunities on campus, her most pivotal experience was yet again, overseas. She had a portion of her clinical hours in Vietnam, where she was able to observe and experience another perspective on health.

Since obtaining her doctorate, Dr. Angela has been practicing in Elkhart, IN working with patients to balance their nervous system, rehabilitate musculoskeletal disorders, and reverse disease diagnoses. While her doctoral focus was on the nervous system and its role in physiology, practicing was able to open the door to the dramatic impact nutritional fundamentals have on body function, as well. As a practitioner, she uses ancestral medicine to restore health. Therefore, she uses concepts from many different cultures in order to adopt a healing protocol that is appropriate for a patient’s condition. She meshes concepts from the research done by Dr. Loren Cordain (Paleo), Dr. Natalie McBride (GAPS), Dr. Weston A. Price, and Dr. James Chestnut (Innate Diet). These concepts form a foundation to help patients find their individual needs.

As a practitioner, Dr. Angela has treated thousands of patients with conditions ranging from disc herniations and chronic headaches to Lupus and Crohn’s. She takes a unique diagnostic approach that allows her to decipher the necessary treatment protocols to get patients back on a healing journey. For the majority, this journey is free of medications and surgery, yet full of lifestyle shifts in diet, exercise, and stress reduction. In addition to treating patients, she maintains her passion for teaching by instructing Anatomy and Physiology courses for future healthcare providers.

Every time you eat
