Cathy Malone MS, RDN is a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist with over 30 years of experience applying a functional approach to nutrition. She specializes in nutrition therapy for pediatric patients with gastrointestinal problems, but sees adults as well! Her approach is personal and based on the integrative model to remove, replace, reinoculate, repair, and rebalance. That is, remove inflammatory/allergenic foods, replace with wholesome foods, which support the immune system and growth; reinoculate and rebalance the intestinal microbiome with food and supplements and repair the gastrointestinal tract. This method has served her patients well over the years. Cathy has seen how diet change and the use of supplements not only improve digestive function, but growth, behavior, mood and overall health.
At the Center for Pediatric Nutrition and Gastroenterology at Massachusetts General Hospital, Cathy worked with patients with the following diagnosis’: constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), celiac disease, gluten intolerance, food allergy, poor weight gain/growth, fatty liver, autism, gastroesophageal reflux (GER), picky eaters, feeding difficulties, polycystic ovary disease (PCOS), infant & toddler feeding, eosinophilic esophagitis (EOE), Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis. She has extensive experience working with therapeutic diets which include the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, FODMAP, elimination diets, multiple food allergies, Ketogenic diet, and enteral feedings.
Cathy lectures on topics such as inflammatory bowel disease & diet, autism & diet, food allergies/intolerances and appropriate nutrient supplementation. She recently traveled to China to help implement a nutrition program using the Specific Carbohydrate Diet for patients with Autism.
On A Personal Note…
I am passionate about helping children and families change the way they eat. As a nutritionist for over 30 years and a mother of three grown children, I see what people eat and worry! I understand how difficult it is to feed a family well, and to know which foods are most nourishing.
Over the years, advice has changed: what was once good for you is now bad and vice versa. I would like to help you and your family by giving sound nutrition advice.
I thank God for the opportunity to help you as I believe that only Jesus can truly heal and Restore to Flourish.
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
