Sabine’s approach to healing arts and nutrition has been evolving over the last 20 years. Her interests in holistic medicine began in 1994 with the entrance into a 1000-hour certification in acupressure that included various styles of acupressure, Chinese nutrition, remedies, counseling techniques, and guided imagery. In 1999, she was introduced to the work of Weston A. Price through Sally Fallon Morell’s presentation and her book, Nourishing Traditions.
After moving to San Francisco and implementing these diet principles for many years, she began working with Dr. Cowan in 2006, where she has continued to expanded her depth of knowledge in alternative medicine. Since then, she has been helping Dr. Cowan with the creation, research, and consultation of the various diet protocols, and in 2012, was additionally trained by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride as a doctor’s assistant for the GAPS Diet.
Her passion for food, holistic medicine, and alternative care accessibility have stimulated other projects such as the Community Supported Healthcare Plan, developing in-office treatments and services, and organizing resources for patients.
“As someone who faced moderate to severe symptoms from Crohn’s Disease for over forty years, I find it hard to adequately express how grateful I am to Sabine Luisi for expert advice. Since I began to follow my prescribed diet therapy, I have been virtually symptom free, something I had never been able to achieve prior to working with her. Sabine’s knowledge of nutrition is encyclopedic. In addition, she has been masterful in helping me to implement the changes. She’s patient, flexible, encouraging and yet clear and straightforward about the reasons to follow recommendations completely and the possible downside of adaptations. She’s always been available and accessible, for quick questions or in-depth conversations. I’ve come to think of Sabine as an indispensable member of my wellness team.”
