The Beet at Ellwood Thompson's

4 North Thompson Street Richmond, Virginia 23221


Bringing a child into the world is one of the most amazing, life-changing events imaginable.

As beautiful a miracle as it is, the reality is that it can also be frustrating and challenging to conceive. And the less-often discussed truth is, many couples and individuals have trouble conceiving. Many of whom you may never even realize.

The quest for conception often leads to conventional fertility treatments which can be an emotional roller coaster of anxiety, stress and frustration. The good news is, you are not alone, and there are other options.

Passionate health practitioners, like Greg Dow of Centered RVA and Charlotte Christiensen of Rooted RVA, want to be with you on your family’s journey. Teaming with knowledge of effective, evidence-based solutions for both men and women, that can either be done in addition to western fertility treatments or as a standalone treatment, Greg and Charlotte strive to assist you.

By addressing underlying causes of infertility, couples not only drastically increase their chances of becoming pregnant, but also experience relief from the many health issues that are symptomatic of hormone imbalances. Families that embrace these lifestyle changes report better sleep, lower stress levels, and fewer menstrual issues such as cramps, fatigue, or PMS.

Come to learn what steps you can take to start improving your fertility!

About the Presenters

Charlotte Christensen, MScN

Founder of Rooted RVA

Charlotte is a functional nutrition specialist who believes true health starts in the kitchen. Her philosophy is to help you find your farmers, your community, and your roots -- and there you will find your health!

As a health-supportive culinary expert, gardener, and lifestyle counselor, Charlotte believes food is medicine and that, given the right conditions, our bodies have the remarkable capability of healing themselves.

Charlotte whole-heartedly believes that the food we eat determines our health outcome. Specifically, eating whole foods that are grown and cooked with intention provides a powerful experience and lowers cellular inflammation -- the underlying cause of the chronic diseases that are so prevalent in our society.

Recognizing that no ‘one diet fits all’, she's committed to serving each unique individual’s needs through her practice, Rooted RVA. Charlotte helps her clients explore their own health and determine which foods will support their particular needs.

She received her master’s degree in functional nutrition from the National University of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, OR, to compliment her skills as a health-supportive chef and her background in biology, ecology and agriculture. She returned to Richmond in 2019 to help her community to achieve their ultimate health goals through mindful, sustainable lifestyle choices!
