Our Philosophy


Can you remember the last time you felt great?


Do you feel your body is working against you with cravings, decreased metabolism, hidden food sensitivities and fatigue?


Do you feel you need to weigh less to live more?


Have you tried every crazy diet ever conceived only to starve yourself and end up gaining all the weight plus more just a short time later?


Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?


At My Core Nutrition the goal is to optimize your health, provide you with more energy and allow any necessary weight loss to happen naturally without feelings of deprivation. You won't be required to count calories, exercise all day long or eat nothing but twigs and tofu. Your custom food plan will focus on a large variety of whole natural foods that you CAN eat and less attention on foods you can't eat. My philosophy is a whole body approach so your sessions will also include lifestyle recommendations including: activity, stress reduction, sleep, supplementation, daily routines, meal planning and hydration.

Since I don't offer a "one diet fits all" program you might be asked to follow an elimination diet to identify any foods that might be standing in the way of you and your health goals. Food intolerances and sensitivities can cause a variety of health problems and with 70% of your immune system in your gastrointestinal tract, it is important to make sure your digestion and absorption are working properly.

For additional customization we are happy to provide you with Nutrition Genetic testing. This easy test provides you with a very specific plan based on your individual genes. If you are looking for greater athletic performance, disease prevention or optimal health this is the test for you!

My clients always tell me "I know what I need to do, I just don't do it" or "I don't want to give up the good stuff". If this sounds familiar don't worry, I will provide the road map and we can set off on this journey of health together. With my variety of services I can provide you with the proper tools you need to be successful. Whether you need cooking instruction, pantry interventions, help with meal planning or grocery store tours I will be there to support you every step of the way.


Are you ready to change your life?





Functional Medicine:

understanding the whole person.

Hallmarks of a functional medicine approach to achieve optimal health and fitness:

Patient-centered care. The focus of functional medicine is on patient-centered care, promoting health as a positive vitality, beyond just the absence of disease. By listening to the patient and learning his or her story, Vicki brings the patient into the discovery process and tailors a wellness plan that address the individual's unique needs.

An integrative, science-based healthcare approach. Functional medicine practitioners like Vicki Robichaux look "upstream" to consider the complex web of interactions in the patient's history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to a unhealthy lifestyle. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body, and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning.

Integrating best medical practices.

Vicki Pond integrates Functional Medicine with what is sometimes considered "alternative" or "integrative" medicine, creating a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest genetic testing and other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed combinations of Medical Nutritional Therapy, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management techniques.
