About Us

Susan Wyler, MPH, RD, LDN

A graduate of the University of Chicago, Wyler earned her Master’s Degree in Public Health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she is an adjunct professor in the top-rated Nutrition Department. After a public health internship focusing on diabetes self-management education and comprehensive clinical training at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, she conducted a research project at one of the leading cancer hospitals in France.

A fully accredited Registered Dietitian and Licensed Nutritionist, Wyler previously studied integrative nutrition here and in Switzerland during her collaboration with Dr. Thomas Rau, internationally acclaimed practitioner of biological medicine, which is especially effective at dealing with chronic inflammatory and degenerative diseases. That work led to a book, The Swiss Secret of Optimal Health, written with Dr. Rau. She is also co-author of The Acid Reflux Solution, written with Dr. Jorge E. Rodriguez, who frequently appears on TV’s The Doctors as well as The View.

A former culinary professional, Wyler was food editor of Food & Wine magazine for many years and has published over half a dozen well-reviewed cookbooks. As a food editor and book packager, she worked with many of the best chefs and cooking teachers of her time, including James Beard, Julia Child, Paula Wolfert, Rick Bayless, Thomas Keller, Iron Chef Morimoto, and Nick Malgieri.

Wyler founded Wyler Nutritional Wellness to coordinate her culinary expertise with the latest scientific knowledge of her dietetics practice. She uses evidence-based nutrition techniques and compassionate counseling, combined with an integrative approach, to deal effectively with problems of weight control, food allergies, and management of chronic inflammatory and degenerative diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, heart disease, acid reflux, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and COPD.  

“Food First” is Wyler’s motto. Customized dietary programs and original recipes are tailored to each client’s individual needs. Only after detailed analysis and testing are supplements prescribed where needed.
