Registered Dietitian Nutritionists helping with medical nutrition therapy for conditions such as IBS, constipation, SIBO, bloating, and nutrition counseling for weight loss and management.

Co-founders: April Panitz, MS, RDN, CDN & Christine Randazzo Kirschner, MS, RDN, CDN

We are registered dietitians who specialize in digestive disorders.

Through nutrition counseling and lifestyle coaching, we help people manage their symptoms and get back to enjoying their lives.

A one-size-fits-all plan does not work. Everyone has different genetics, metabolisms, lifestyles, physical activity levels and even different gut microbes. That's why we take a whole person, individualized approach that works for you!

Amenta Nutrition is a New York-based nutrition counseling and consulting firm specializing in medical nutrition therapy for Digestive Disorders. We provide evidence-based nutrition counseling to both individuals and companies including telehealth services in the following states: Florida, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, & more! (see below)

Our approach is Practical, Individualized,
Evidence-Based, and Judgement-Free.

We believe that nutrition does not have to be difficult or confusing, nor does it have to be expensive or time-consuming. We are trained to interpret the latest research to offer you the most up-to-date recommendations. Additionally, we clarify nutrition misinformation received from a friend, the internet, a personal trainer, health coach, or “nutritionist.”
Our guidance will address your individual needs and help you achieve your personal health goals and feel your best!  

We are here to listen and support you on your journey!

~ A Few Kind Words ~

I had been dealing with stomach issues for about 5 years, I had issues with constipation, diarrhea, bloating that came with pain and discomfort, and once I figured out I had IBS I tried to fix my symptoms on my own. When I realized that wasn’t really helping I decided that I needed professional help which is what brought me to Amenta Nutrition.

‍I can't believe how quickly I started to feel better after my first couple of sessions with April. I learned so many things through our video calls and comments that she would leave on my journals (like who knew that kiwis helped with constipation??) and all the tips she gave me were so easy to implement into everyday life that none of it felt like a chore or like I was missing out on anything. I feel so much better in so many ways - my bowel movements have gotten so much better and I no longer get painful and uncomfortable bloating regularly. My bloating was so bad that now friends and family can visibly notice how much it has gone down. My confidence has boosted and I feel amazing!

I have been suffering with IBS D since the onset of Covid in 2020.  My gastroenterologist had me take every test, submitted numerous stool samples and I was finally diagnosed with IBS D.  She told me to get the Fodmap book and and follow their diet and food suggestions.  I found the diet impossibly restrictive and started losing weight, which I can not afford to lose. Finally after over 2 years and at my lowest weight in decades she referred to Amenta Nutrition.

I worked with Christine. She is a pleasure. She requested my medical records to have all that info as well.  She listened, was not judgmental and made me immediately feel comfortable.  The first thing she told me to do was throwout the Fodmap book!  She worked out meal plans that worked for me specifically.  I'm able to add foods back into my diet that I like, in the right amounts that don't upset my system. I haven't felt this good in over 2 years.  I can go out and enjoy my life again.  The teleconferences worked really well for our sessions. If I have a question she's only a text away always with a quick response . She has given me back my freedom!

Anonymous Happy Client

My daughter is THE PICKIEST eater. She started having a lot of trouble with constipation. Working with Amenta Nutrition has turned things around in my house.  My daughter has NO PROBLEMS with constipation anymore. Dinnertime and breakfast are no longer a struggle or a time I dread.

Working with Christine was great. I was struggling with a recurrence of idiopathic anaphylaxis early in my pregnancy. Christine helped me put together a varied meal plan and food list that was safe for my condition. I have much more confidence in my food choices now, and have not had a recurrence of my symptoms since working with Christine.

Alexandra H.

Working with Christine was great. She listened to me and was able to craft a plan that made sense for where I was at in my life at that moment and then modifying as made sense as we went along. As a result I have a new mindset and relationship with food.  While I still have more weight to lose, I have a plan where I am losing consistently but it in a healthy, realistic, sustainable manner that does not make me feel like I am depriving myself of any of my favorite foods or drinks.
