I am a certified health counselor and a homotoxicologist. I am certified by Columbia University and am an accredited member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, an organization that certifies health professionals who do not work with pharmaceuticals. I am also a candidate for certification by the International Institute of Homotoxicology.
I am a member of Amy's Wishing Well biomedical advisory board. Amy's Wishing Well is a not-for-profit foundation designed to help families struggling with debilitating health conditions, autism and neurodevelopmental disorders to develop lifestyle and nourishment skills to support a healthier foundation for recovery.
I have been trained in over 40 dietary theories from Eastern and Western medicine. I was taught by an amazing assortment of the world’s foremost authorities on wellness, nutrition and counseling — Mehmet Oz, Deepak Chopra, David Wolfe, Annemarie Colbin, Barry Sears, Andrew Weil, Andrea Beaman, John Douillard, Sally Fallon, Mark Hyman, David Katz, Paul Pitchford, Bernie Siegel, Walter Willett, and Neal Barnard.
As a homotoxicologist, I studied under some of the most prominent professionals in the field, including respected lecturer and autism recovery expert Mary Coyle, and Dr. Gregory Ellis, an author and a leading authority on natural detox and sports nutrition.
I am a mom of two boys. We are slow foodies, seasonal eaters and locavores. Living in New York City, we are privileged to have the opportunity to eat mostly locally and sustainably-grown food — nutrient-dense, vibrant, delicious food that the "experts" say no longer exists. I am an ardent cook, drawing inspiration from family and friends. I've become an avid blogger due to my love of writing about my passions. I work to demystify New York City Greenmarkets, whole, seasonal foods and evolutionary nutrition on my blog—SandraDubrov.blogspot.com.
As with many in my field, a personal crisis brought me to this path. My older son, Adam, was diagnosed with autism at the age of two. It was a long road that brought him to being the recovered, healthy kid he is today. A diet of healing foods and homotoxicology were vital to his recovery. Read Adam's story here.
My mission as a health professional is to help families struggling with debilitating health or neurological conditions by successfully implementing sustainable food and lifestyle changes and assisting the body’s innate healing process by strengthening the immune system and alleviating toxins from the body.
