Michael's Story

Michael Yurich is a functional holistic nutritionist based in Fort Myers, Florida.
Michael Yurich experienced a major life-changing event at age 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. 
More importantly, the 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 in 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 as a clinical laboratory scientist, specializing in cancer genetics, in several New York hospitals and commercial laboratories. Moreover, his skill in filtering reliable research to formulate the best nutrition plan for his clients is like no other.
