About Tribeca Functional Nutrition

Tribeca Functional Nutrition was founded by Michael Yurich in 2018, after he completed the Human Nutrition master's program at the University of Bridgeport and he has been serving the community ever since. Michael is truly passionate about working with and alongside you in your unique journey.

At Tribeca Functional Nutrition, we specialize and love helping people with:
  • increasing energy levels

  • supporting methylation and antioxidant status

The vast majority of chronic conditions and diseases can be significantly supported with alternative health modalities and lifestyle changes. Some of these modalities include dietary modification, nutrient supplementation, chiropractic, acupuncture, various forms of exercise, as well as stress management techniques such as breath work and meditation. These "alternative" modalities are even more effective when used in combination with each other and when they simply become a way of life. The following health conditions (and many more!) may benefit from implementing these amazing lifestyle habits:
  • The very large spectrum of autoimmmune disorders
  • The very large spectrum of malignant disorders (i.e. cancer)
  • Cardio- and cerebrovascular-related issues that can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke (e.g. hypertension and atherosclerosis)
  • Prediabetes and Metabolic syndrome (MetS)
  • Type II Diabetes, NAFLD, and PCOS
  • GERD, Celiac's disease, and non-Celiac gluten sensitivities
  • IBS, SIBO, and SIFO
  • Autism and ADHD
  • Lyme, HIV, mold, candida, and other chronic infections
  • Histamine and mast cell disorders
  • Allergies, asthma, and eczema
  • COPD and other respiratory disorders
  • Depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders
  • Parkinson’s disease and ALS
  • Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia
  • Epilepsy and chronic headaches (including migraines)
  • Osteoarthritis and osteoporosis

Michael's Story

Michael Yurich.
Michael Yurich is the founder and CEO at Tribeca Functional Nutrition. Michael experienced a major life-changing event at the age of 28 when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. While it was no walk in the park at the time, he now considers himself lucky to have experienced this event. He quickly realized that changing his lifestyle was the best option for reducing his risk of acquiring additional chronic diseases down the road, including the recurrence of cancer.

Specific lifestyle changes that Michael made include dietary changes and use of nutrient supplementation; physical activity including high-intensity interval training, aerobic exercise, and yoga; as well as chiropractic and meditation to support all three aspects of overall wellness--physical, chemical, and emotional. It has been 15 years since making this health transformation and Michael has never looked back. 
Michael's health challenges helped him to discover his passion and life mission to share his knowledge with the community.  He hopes that everyone will have the opportunity to learn and understand the power of nutrition and other lifestyle factors that contribute to the maintenance of a high quality of life, from infancy all the way through to the senior years. Michael Yurich is a clinical nutritionist trained under the functional model of medicine and is based out of Fort Myers, Florida.

Michael has a bachelor's degree in Biology from SUNY Farmingdale State College and a master's degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. Prior to his work as a clinical nutritionist, he worked in multiple hospitals and commercial laboratories in the field of cancer genetics. Moreover, his skill in filtering reliable research to formulate the best nutrition plan for his clients is like no other.
