About Thrive
Thrive Health is a digital health company with a mission to help clients flourish and seize control over their health long term with personalized nutrition counseling. 

Thrive was founded by people that are dedicated to strengthening the world's well-being by tackling the root causes of health issues. There is so much misinformation on what is good for someone and for their body. Additionally, the vast majority of our food supply is of poor quality and we've been bombarded with marketing dollars to believe diets are the only way out. In short, the deck has been stacked against most Americans when it comes to living a healthy life.

That’s where Thrive comes in. We believe that working with the highest quality nutrition professionals is key to making sustainable life changes, developing strong nutritional habits, and taking control over one's own health.
