Peta Cohen, M.S., R.D., a Clinical Nutritionist and Metabolic Specialist, is joining NAA – NY Metro for presentations in Westchester and Manhattan (at the Rebecca School) to discuss an important, complex, and often overlooked issue in people on the autism spectrum – problems in systemic and metabolic functions. Her presentation will review the underlying systems and metabolic problems familiar to many individuals on the autism spectrum. Not only will she will explain their dynamic relationships, she also will provide a framework for assessing and treating these problems.

Peta practices a Biomedical approach to healing based on the principals of Functional Medicine, developing individualized treatment plans that address the root causes of illness based on the unique biochemistry of each individual. Physicians often refer their most challenging cases to Peta when a traditional approach is unsuccessful.

Peta is frequently invited to share her expertise at leading global conferences and seminars, such as: Defeat Autism Now/Autism Research Institute Conferences, The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), The Lyme Autism Association, The American Holistic Medical Association, The Compounding Pharmacy Association, The Maternal Mother and Child Organization of Pascack Valley Hospital (New Jersey).
