About Nutrition As Rx

NutritionAsRx (Nrx) is a holistic nutrition coaching company. Nrx was founded by Steven Ashton in September 2014 after realizing the urgent need for quality nutritional guidance. Not only is there an overwhelming and confusing amount of nutritional advice on the internet and mainstream publications, the major institutions are deceiving the public by ignoring scientific evidence in order to pander to the industrial complex.

No doubt that there is abundant information about consuming cleaner, whole food based diets. However, many people find it hard to stick to healthy diets recommended to them by conventional nutritionists due to emotional eating issues or food addictions. Holistic nutrition helps people to identify the triggers that sabotage healthy eating and gives them certain tools to bring about positive change.

Modern medicine attempts to mask the symptoms of conditions and not correcting the underlying cause of the symptoms. Luckily, the rapidly developing field of functional medicine is scientifically proving that the body functions as a whole, the mind and body are one and should be treated the same. Nutrition consultants and other functional medical practitioners hold the key to the resolution of a great many conditions that are prevalent today. Nutrition consultants understand the core imbalances that drive metabolic dysfunction. Nrx helps clients to develop self-awareness skills and techniques to nurture themselves and maintain their health long after the coaching sessions have ended.

It is now the responsibility of individuals and families to become better educated and aware of the dangers that lurk in the nutritional world. Nrx takes this complex subject and simplifies it for the client.

NutritionAsRx is really a call to action for nutritional education. This site and all references and links and nutrition related businesses can be used as smart, scientifically sound resources to learn about the broad field of nutrition.

“Knowing how to eat right in a modern world can be life changing. This is what makes what I do so rewarding.”

About Steven Ashton

Nutrition As RX founder Steven Ashton is a longtime foodie, gym owner and personal trainer.
He has been involved in fitness and nutrition for the last 25+ years.
Not only is nutrition his passion but also his way of life. After coming from a background in the elite Army Special Forces and the rigorous training that goes with it, he has used his knowledge of nutrition to help combat and slow down the degenerative effects of life and to maintain his own health. Years of wear and tear from carrying heavy loads and jumping out of aircraft had caused damage that he was not aware of. After being diagnosed with severe degenerative arthritis of the hip and lower spine, doctors attributed his excellent health and lack of pain to exercise and the strict anti-inflammatory diet he has practiced for many years.

After completing certifications in sports nutrition for Health and Performance and Fitness Nutrition, Steven completed the Holistic Nutrition Consultant program from Bauman College of holistic nutrition and culinary arts to learn more about nutrition and to better serve clients. He also founded the nutrition coaching company Nutrition As rx to bring his knowledge and love of nutritional coaching to others. Steven is committed to team up with like-minded healthcare professionals to provide clients with the nutritional knowledge to overcome disease and maintain great health and longevity.

Steven provides nutrition coaching to athletes at his home gyms CrossFit9 and Anytime Fitness as well as clients from other parts of the country. His main interests are in ancestral/paleo nutrition and coaching a holistic lifestyle and diet. Steven’s approach to nutrition is to always follow scientific principles and to treat each case as individual.

Steven’s personal crusade is to empower and educate kids on nutrition and exercise because this should be taught as early as possible. Too many adults were initiated to poor eating habits from the beginning and continue to eat poorly throughout adulthood. I want to plant the seed of body awareness and good eating to our youngsters.
Steven has certifications in personal training, CrossFit, kettlebells, olympic lifting, kids fitness and seniors fitness.
Steven has two young energetic boys that he helps raise with his wife Shireen. This is more than enough motivation to maintain his own health.
