Dr. Jessica Pizano graduated with honors from the University of Bridgeport’s clinical nutrition master’s program. She continued her education at Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) where she graduated with a Doctor of Clinical Nutrition. During her years in academia, she developed interests in nutritional genomics and metabolomics. She specializes in working with patients that have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Disorders, Dysautonomia and other conditions.
Dr. Pizano is also the owner of Mast Cell Advanced Diagnostics and co-owner of Clinical Paradigms. The practice provides patients with a comprehensive approach to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and related disorders incorporating nutrition, nutritional genomics, metabolomics, neural retraining, Pilates, and immunology. Her goal is to provide a comprehensive care solution for patients helping bridge the gap in care that these patients typically face.
She has developed course work at the master’s, post-graduate and doctoral levels at MUIH in nutritional genomics where she continues to teach. She has recently joined Sonoran University of Health Sciences as an adjunct faculty member teaching nutritional genomics. Dr. Pizano has published a series of peer-reviewed journal articles on the microbiome, contributed two chapters on nutritional genomics in a graduate level nutrition textbook and contributed a chapter on nutrition in the book Transforming Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
Dr. Pizano teaches Nutrigenomics and Personalized Nutrition and Clinical Applications IV: Co- morbidities and Complex Medical Disorders.
