Amie Valpone - Episode Art - Natural MD RadioAmie’s approach is centered around eating a variety of whole, fresh foods – mostly free of gluten, dairy, soy, and refined sugar. One of the fundamentals of her “clean manifesto” is to eat foods that make your body feel good.

Her personal story is a powerful and inspiring one with a happy ending, as Amie turned to functional and integrative medicine to heal herself from a series of chronic conditions from which western medicine provided no relief. Amie really believes that food is your best medicine. I think you’re going to love her story and her message as much as I do.
