I offer a
nutritional experience for
who care very deeply
about making their
health their number
Hi, I’m Aaron Lambert, Founder and
Nutritional Educator of
Whole Health Nutrition Center, LLC
The word clients use most to describe me is “supportive”.
I believe empathy matters because it shows people you are listening to their deepest concerns. That you haven’t just slapped things together to get them out the door, but instead have taken such immense pride in the work that you do. Many clients come to me because their regular doctor may not be listening.
At WHC we deliver a customized approach for each client based on your individual nutritional needs. We provide you with the tools you need to live well and we pay attention to the details and work with you every step of the way.
My goal is helping you figure out what your body needs to stay healthy. I feel like what I offer here is unique because many people feel overwhelmed or don’t know where to start with the details, I find central in the healing process.
As a result, I feel like I take on your health journey like it is my own and immerse myself in your world. My team and I pour all of our emotional energy and resources into your health needs with an immense goal of making you feel better. I see it as a privilege which I don’t take lightly because you are also investing your time, money and energy into your new health journey and you are believing in me to be the person to take you there.
So that’s what you can expect.
Customized Nutritional Experience. Unbridled Care. Education. Heart. Empathy.
Aaron's Whole Health Journey
I have not always been as healthy as I am today. While I was generally considered quite healthy growing up, there were many underlying health issues that continued to get worse as I entered my twenties and early thirties. Below is the list of health concerns that I had around age 30.
Falling asleep/drowsiness in the afternoon.
Feeling bloated/gassy after meals.
Extreme sugar/grain cravings between meals.
Recurring sinus infections.
Highly irritable if I didn't get a sugar fix.
Many cavities after years without any.
Weight gain even with strenuous exercise.
Nervous leg bouncing and hand motions.
Dizziness upon standing and fainting spells.
IBS with tremendous abdominal pain.
Vicious stuffy nose and post nasal drip episodes that prevented me from sleeping. Drove me crazy!!
Around this time, I had a health emergency that led me to passing out and in the hospital. Later, I was told that I was kept alive on my way to the hospital by steroid injections because my heart rate kept falling below 20 beats per minute.
After four days in the hospital and numerous tests no one could tell me what happened except that it wasn't a heart attack. No one talked to me about my diet or gave me any suggestions to improve my health. At this point, I knew something had to be done or else I was in for some serious health issues in the near future.
My sister, Tara, who is the owner of the Nutritional Wellness Center in Ithaca was, at this time, beginning to work on a list of health concerns that baffled every one she sought help from. So I followed her lead and began working with the same Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) practitioner she was working with. I learned that my diet had undernourished my adrenals to the point that they had trouble functioning properly and that poorly nourished adrenals have a hard time maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function. (This answered the question why I always got dizzy when I stood up quickly.)
As time went on, my sister became healthy the first time in her life by following the nutrition and supplement advice of her NRT practitioner. Eventually, she had enough energy to learn how to be a NRT practitioner. Ultimately, she opened up her own wellness center. I, on the other hand, would get some results and then fall back into my old eating habits. My symptoms would always return. Once she became a NRT practitioner, I decided to let her help me improve my health.
Over a period of two to three years I would continue the cycle of improving my health and then reverting back to my previous eating habits. Each time I restarted my attempt to improve my health, it took longer to feel better. During this time, my sister told me I was the worst client she ever had.
Finally, I chose a healthy future over sugar, fast food and highly processed food. This is the best decision I ever made. Today, at the age of 40, I have none of those symptoms listed above. I have never felt better and am extremely happy I have taken control of my health.
And taking control of your health is what I want to help you to do!!

What was it like before you came in to see us?
My health issues began at a very young age with stomach aches, headaches and sleeplessness. In my teens I struggled with endometriosis, anemia, chronic headaches and yeast infections and a bout with Mononucleosis from which I felt I could never fully recover. A lot of my symptoms came and went so my doctors often attributed my issues to stress and some even said that it was "all in my head."
In my early 20's I struggled with IBS and later in my 20's fibromyalgia and depression. I was getting sicker yet I consistently tested as "healthy" with the conventional medical community. So I began to seek more natural methods of care in my early 30's - after I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism.
I had found some relief with homeopathy but how it worked was a still a mystery to me. Although I was aware of what I ate, I was not aware of how my misconceptions about healthy eating were at the root of my health issues.
After my first child seemed to be born with tooth decay, I was introduced to Weston A. Price and I started learning about whole food nutrition. I realized that our diets were leaving me and my family under-nourished and toxic. I began incorporating organic fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meats, raw-dairy and healthy fats; as well as developing an understanding of what a true nutrient-rich diet looked like. Yet I struggled to incorporate it into our daily eating habits, especially when spending time with family. At the end of my third pregnancy I suddenly developed multiple health issues including a mysterious rash, severe eczema on my hands and face, constant weight loss, dizziness, extreme fatigue, painful digestive issues and headaches.
For almost two years, I was able to reduce my symptoms with the help of homeopathy, naturopathy, essential oils and a lot of trial and error. Despite all of my efforts, including liver detox and following a strict gluten and dairy-free diet, I was still not absorbing nutrients. I felt as though I was going to lose my life if I didn't get help soon.
How is it now?
The NRT that Aaron uses was what drew me to Whole Health Nutrition Center. I wanted to stop taking shots in the dark with my health. Since working with Aaron I have been able to take control of my health. He provided me with the missing information, whole food choices and support that I needed. I am now able to make better food choices about the grains and sugars that I was so addicted to. I am finally healing and have begun to thrive again. My energy and vitality have returned and I have truly taken control of my health.
