About Chris Engen

A little bit about me

I specialize in Amino Acid Therapy, the use of supplemental amino acids to replenish depleted neurotransmitter systems.   I have helped hundreds of people successfully use amino acids to manage their low moods, stress, insomnia, scattered thoughts and more. Amino acids also curb their cravings for alcohol, sugar and other substances. Many of my clients find an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs through the use of these simple capsules.

I hold an Advanced Certification as a Recovery Nutrition Coach (CRNC2) for  Nutritional Therapy / Amino Acid Therapy from The Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition. I studied under and am in ongoing close contact with Julia Ross, author of The Mood Cure, The Diet Cure and The Craving Cure. I'm Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition (BCHN ™) and hold a Nutrition Consultant Certificate (NC) from Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts.  I also graduated from The University of California, Santa Barbara, Cum Laude, with a B.A. Degree in Business-Economics, 1991. 

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA with my 3 teenagers and 2 dogs. My diverse interests include triathlon racing (20+ years), open water swimming, running events, snowboarding, SCUBA, yoga, hiking, travel and movies.
