My curiosity about nutrition and its impact on the human body began in high school when my mom was diagnosed with cancer. I watched the terrible effects that cancer and chemotherapy had on her body. My curiosity about the amazing healing effects certain nutritional programs had with cancer patients, lead to a Bachelor’s in Nutrition, and later a Master’s in Microbiology and Immunology.
I have always been fascinated and intrigued by our immune system and the way it responds to microbes in our environment and in our body. The fact that over 70% of our immune system resides in our gut means that what we eat and drink can directly influence not only the health of our digestive tract, but also our immune response, and the health of our entire body.
My passion is to teach others about how the health of our gut, brain, immune system, and nervous system can be shifted by following a personalized supplement and nutritional plan.
Meet Dr. Jennifer
Even as a small child, Dr. Jennifer Angell has always been drawn to birth and babies. Playing with her three sisters, she would “birth” and breastfeed her dolls, play house and “mother” younger kids. She grew up with an in-home daycare, always having a baby in her arms. Circumstances drew her to pursue a field in health care, so after completed an undergraduate degree in chemistry, she graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minneapolis, MN in November 2001. Her favorite classes in chiropractic school were obstetrics and pediatrics. Immediately after graduation, she enrolled in a post-graduate program to specialize in prenatal and pediatric chiropractic. In 2003 she became a certified birth doula through DONA and started attending births as a labor coach. Dr. Angell has owned and operated several specialized chiropractic practices, focusing on treating pregnant women and children. She moved to Southern California in 2006 and very quickly became involved in the birthing community. She began teaching The Bradley Method® of Natural Childbirth in 2007 after the home water birth of her first daughter. Dr. Angell is currently enrolled in midwifery school, finally pursuing her ultimate dream of supporting families as a primary birth attendant. She has attended over 250 births as a birth doula, assistant midwife, and midwifery student. She welcomed her second daughter in 2016 in another peaceful and beautiful home water birth. Dr. Angell advocates for a woman’s right to birth choices and strives for the highest level of health and wellness for mothers, babies, and families. Currently Dr. Angell is pleased to be seeing patients of all ages and all conditions (men, women, grandmas, grandpas, expectant mamas, children, and infants) within the Depke Wellness Center in Newport Beach.
