Welcome Alex Parker-DeJesus!

Alex Parker-DeJesus is joining Calmglow as our Functional Dietitian. 

A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, health coach, and wellness activist, Alex is passionate about all things food, wellness, and behavioral change. Her goal is to educate, inspire, and help individuals to take charge of their own health while living the highest quality of life possible! 

In February, she relocated to hot and humid Florida from the West Coast with her husband, two dogs… and soon-to-be baby boy!  A certified wellness coach and health advocate who finished her IFNCP credential in 2019, Alex practices patient-centered care and helps others through functional medicine. 

Alex has worked helping people with multiple chronic diseases like Type 2 Diabetes, CVD, obesity and weight management, autoimmune, and gastrointestinal conditions. In her previous life, she attended Johnson & Wales University for foodservice management and culinary, as well as Kennesaw State, Norfolk State, and Iowa State for wellness coaching, nutrition & food science, and exercise physiology. 

Alex knows first hand how functional medicine can help. She found functional medicine after spending many years trying to figure out why she felt drained and in pain with no answers from the conventional medicine model. Using a root-cause approach and looking at the whole person to identify system imbalances, she was able to put the pieces together and eventually create the life she desired. 

Alex understands how difficult it can be to make lifestyle shifts, but how valuable it can be to living a balanced and quality life. In her free time, she enjoys cooking delicious (and healthy) food, hiking (or just being outdoors), swimming in the ocean, and traveling anywhere and everywhere (pre-COVID!). She is thrilled to be a part of an organization that recognizes the importance of functional medicine and true health! She looks forward to working with each and every one of you!

We are excited to have Alex join our Calmglow family. We look forward to learning how to have fun with food with Alex and discovering all of Alex’s tips and tricks on the small, painless diet tweaks which will propel us on our journey of health!

What our
patients
are saying

Always get clarity and understanding…

Dianne has always help me understand the complicated issues of hypothyroidism, understanding the symptoms and long term effects. She has helped with my dietary needs and overall well being. Highly recommend if you are still feeling the symptoms even if your on traditional medications.

The best part of talking with new patients…

I have worked with Dianne Hinton at Calmglow for 4 years. I receive calls from new patients every day. I think the best part of talking with new patients is that I give them the knowledge and hope in knowing that I–like all of Dianne’s staff–was her patient before her employee. I think that says a lot about Dianne as a practitioner. She is very compassionate and caring towards each individual patient.

Diane Hinton saved my life!

After over a year of traditional doctors misdiagnosing and mistreating my illness, Diane immediately got it right. She identified the root cause of my illness, and I went from being chronically ill to healed and healthy in less than a year. Diane listens to and cares for her patients like no one I’ve ever known. I highly recommend her for diagnosing the true health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms.

My husband and I just love Calmglow …

Just what is Functional Medicine?  Simply put…. I call it getting to the “cause” of a health issue. Rashes, High Pressure, Arthritis, Obesity, Insomnia, and Fatigue are a few of the issues she’s helped us with.  But what I really like best is; she doesn’t say “here, take this pill” and it’ll “treat the symptoms”.  She treats the “cause” of those symptoms so they truly go away without requiring “pills”.  Our bodies are healing, and the we feel we’re the healthiest we’ve been in a long time! What we’ve discovered about the manner in which our bodies “had been” functioning previously, from the in depth tests she recommends, was pretty astounding. We’ve learned so much since starting to see her as our practitioner, I would never choose to go back to an Allopathic doctor!
