Nutritionist Linda Lonergan Hosts Local TV Show: Wednesday mornings at 8:30 on Comcast public access channel 8.
Local nutritionist Linda Lonergan will host a new TV show, “Welcome to Wellness,” Wednesday mornings at 8:30 on Comcast public access channel 8. She will interview providers of health, nutrition, fitness and well-being services in Westchester and Putnam Counties.
Lonergan, a senior clinical nutritionist and registered dietician nutritionist, has been featured in print media and on TV, and has given lectures on nutrition throughout the local area. She has worked as a nutritionist for more than 21 years and specializes in nutritional support for people dealing with medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, gluten sensitivity and IBS.
Through her private practice, Nutrition Kaye, Lonergan creates individualized plans based on lifestyle, dietary and medical history and blood work. She also offers genetic testing to help personalize her custom meal plans. “The science of nutrigenetics has found specific gene variations have a significant impact on the body’s metabolic pathways,” she says.
She has offices at 95 Route 100 in Katonah and at Sarah’s House of Health, located at 900 South Lake Boulevard in Mahopac. She also hosts a grief support group at Sarah’s House of Health the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m., in memory of her daughter, Katelyn Lonergan. In addition to her private practice, Lonergan has worked in nursing homes and hospitals. Before getting her masters in food nutrition, she was a corporate food scientist.
