Affiliations & Disclosures

Consumers have a right to know and this right extends to affiliations between health professionals and other organizations. Dietitians have a Code of Ethics for their profession. Alexia follows this Code of Ethics. She values her reputation and believes in transparency. This is why she has chosen to fully disclose any potential or apparent conflicts of interest on this page.

Alexia’s opinions are based on her professional judgement, a review of the scientific evidence, and what she has seen firsthand in her experience working with clients. She chooses to associate herself only with organizations and products that she believes in. This means that they either:

(1) Can be included as part of a diet that is beneficial for heart health

(2) Promote evidence-based nutrition (based on research, not testimonials or endorsements)

(3) Are products that she uses or are causes that she supports

Affiliations and Disclosures

Kind Snacks

Alexia has become a member of the Kind Nutrition Collective which means she gets shipments of Kind Snacks goodies and coupons to share with her clients in exchange for participation in surveys for Kind Snacks.

Regular Girl

Alexia has long said that people are NOT eating enough foods with fiber! Regular Girl is “a symbiotic blend of clinically proven prebiotic fibers and probiotics that help maintain a healthy digestive balance.” In other words, it’s a single-serve packet of fiber and probiotics that dissolves completely (for real!) and adds no flavor to what you mix it into. Alexia can offer customers 10% off orders and receives a 10% commission on sales – we both win! Info coming soon – check out this page for orders AND enter promo code ALEXIALEWISRD10.
