Hi! I'm Lindsay Rusu. 

I'm a Holistic Nutrition Counselor

at Dao Integrated Health in Livermore, California.

I'm an SF bay native, a learner, optimist,

health activist, and avid tea-drinker.

I encourage learning to make delicious home-cooked food together

even in the midst of our busy, "fast food" world. 

Since 2012 I have struggled through serious chronic autoimmune health issues that, in many ways, have changed the course of my life forever. The past 8 years have been one of the most challenging yet rewarding seasons of my life. It has been in this time that I realized 

there is a deep whole body connection between

what we think, what we eat, and how we live (lifestyle choices).

I have fought for hope through

  • misdiagnosis

  • medications

  • steroids

  • chemotherapy

  • emotional trauma

  • extreme diet changes

  • working with multiple naturopathic and functional doctors and countless allopathic/western medicine specialists

  • alternative therapies like

    • acupuncture

    • massage therapy

    • chiropractic care 


Healing and whole body health take courage, perseverance,  and willingness to change and grow. But it is possible.

Let's work together to make your health goals become a reality too!

Please feel free to reach out to me directly to discuss

one-on-one consultations.


In the meantime, enjoy my thoughts on my blog regarding health, recipes, simple joys, lifestyle tips and faith.

Things I Love: 

 adventuring to new places; meeting new people;

blessing others through hospitality;

a hot cup of coffee or tea;

culture and diversity; dance; yoga;

long strolls in our neighborhood park;

flower arrangements;

Orthodox Christianity; 

day-of wedding and event coordinating;

creating home with my best friend and husband Eddie
