About Dr. Millie
Mind body soul medicine
My name is Millennia Ruth Lytle, and am affectionately known as Dr. Millie. I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and Certified Nutrition Specialist with a special interest in empowering you to dig deeper in your pursuit of health. I fill gaps of care with Naturopathic Medicine, custom-made nutrition programs and body mind soul exploration. I am a member of Tournesol Wellness’ Primary Care Team and work in tandem with the medical team to expand primary care in New York. I am a board member of the New York Metro Local, incorporating science-based Nutrametrix supplementation and functional testing into her programs. With a primarily plant-based diet, and daily stress-relief practices, I personally has a goal of living until 120 years old and invite you on my journey.
Dr. Millie’s modalities are
- Functional, whole foods and clinical nutrition
- Herbal Medicine and supplementation
- Classical homeopathy
- Lifestyle and mind-body medicine
- Epigenetics and nutrigenomics
- Ericksonian hypnotherapy certified by NLP Canada
- Past Life Regression Therapy (was taught by Dr. Brian Weiss MD)
- HeartMath Meditation
- Intuitive and spiritual approaches
I hold an undergraduate degree in women’s health (sociology) from the University of Toronto and a four-year doctorate diploma from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (2002). I am trained in cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy. In 2008, Dr. Millie received a scholarship from the Robert Bosch Foundation to study Complementary and Alternative Research Methodologies in Potsdam. Following this I went on to complete an International Master’s in Public Health in Hamburg, Germany. In 2013, I earned of Certified as a Nutrition Specialist with the BCNS.
I am a published researcher, experienced radio host and author. I am the founder of Eating for MeaningTM, a unique nutrition program to transform your relationship to food. She is an occasional faculty member at the New York Open Center.
I have consulted for corporate and institutional research and development. Clients in the past have been Idea Couture for Pepsi Co, Cavu Ventures and the University of Copenhagen. I am a licensed ND with the District of Columbia, a licensed nutrition specialist with the BCNS and a member of the New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians (NYANP).
I am the author, founder and thought leader behind Eating for Meaning, a program that promotes a paradigm shift toward therapeutic, individual nutrition, and away from fad diets. Finally, my passion to educate expands into peer to peer education. I am the founder of Nat Med Coach, offering a Virtual Health Club, as well as team-based concierge health and Virtual Health Club with Naturopathic Doctors and Health Coaches. She is an instructor and sits on the Medical Advisory Board for the School of Applied Functional Medicine.
I have a passion for helping creative women address burnout, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, autoimmune disease and a series of health concerns that result from energy and hormonal imbalances, as far as they can be corrected and adjusted through mind-body-soul, nutrition and natural means. The mind-body-soul is one being, and ill health in one area impacts other areas of the body. Naturopathic medicine focuses on root cause resolution, prevention and symptoms reversals related to:
- The Standard American Diet - factory farmed plants and animals
- Hormones and menopause
- Viral and bacterial analysis
- Metabolism, weight gain, blood Sugar and cholesterol
- Blood pressure and electrolytes
- Digestion, leaky gut and detox
- Cellular and organ heath
- HPV and sexual health
- Chronic fatigue, Energy and mitochondrial dysfunction
- Stress and endocrine System
- Anxiety and depression
- Sleep and circadian rhythm
- Neurodegenerative disorders
- Cancer and complementary care
- Functional testing and nutrigenomics
