In 2006, she founded NY Integrated Health, LLC, a Holistic Nutrition, Exercise and Wellness company. The mind-body philosophy of the company is founded on

Customized Nutrition, Exercise, and Physiological Stress Management. Her extensive Nutrition, Health and Chronic Disease education bridges the gap from Clinical Nutrition to Functional Medicine and she has established collaborations with like-minded physicians across the US.

In the last few years, she also expanded into extensive studies regarding environmental toxicity, chronic diseases of the 21st Century such as cancer, autoimmune illnesses, in particular the effects of nutrition, lifestyle and the environment on disease-inducing gene expression. Rika specializes in Pre-Pregnancy nutrition, Women’s Wellness, Digestive Health, symptoms associated with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue, plus all other stress-related health concerns. All illness related with Chronic Lyme and mold sickness is of special interest and this is clearly illustrated in her book, “EAT, DIGEST, NOURISH.”

In her practice she places great focus on the initial intake forms, medical history, objective labs and clinical findings. Rika is available for in-person consultations at Duke Chiropractic ( distance coaching and consultations as a complementary health advocate regarding chronic health conditions. With her integrated problem-solving approach, objective lab testing is required to uncover various health challenges at causal levels. This ‘non-symptom suppressing philosophy’ facilitates long-term healing opportunities for her clients who benefit from improved quality of life.

Examples include improved energy, empowered eating habits, weight loss, better sleep, energized work/sports performance, happier moods, and non-toxic relationships with emotional and mental well being.

Rika is also an invited guest blogger on various Health Blogs where she shares her expertise on a variety of health and nutrition topics.

Rika also strongly believes in the mind-body connection. It is her belief that eating well, taking responsibility for healthier lifestyle choices, feeling well, looking great and operating from inner balance can result in motivation, empowerment and achievement of long-term goals.

Through her own experiences of past health challenges, available investigative resources and experience of being a business woman on-the-go, Rika herself is witness to the positive and healing effects of an integrated wellness approach.

In her spare time, she enjoys travelling, hiking in Nature and cooking at home, while also teaching a weekly spinning class. Once in a while, she gets her ballet slippers out of retirement and “courageously” attends a ballet class.

About the Book…

Nourish Heal Thrive.

“A comprehensive & Holistic Approach To Living With Lyme Disease.”

This nutrition–based book is for those with Chronic Lyme who’ve spent years not feeling well, seeing doctor after doctor, being misdiagnosed, or undergoing rounds and rounds of medication…

Finally, a trusted guide and antidote to the Lyme sufferer’s compromised gut, mood swings and chronic fatigue after emergency antibiotic treatment. Whole food = natural medicine, yet some of the healthiest foods out there can be all wrong for those with Lyme disease.

Right now, you probably find yourself:

  1. Confused about what to eat or being “allergic” to so many foods

  2. Unable to concentrate and in need of a restful night’s sleep

  3. Craving more energy and tired of being so tired!

  4. Sick of dealing with digestive troubles including gas, bloating, pain and constipation BUT…

  5. Fearing that anything you try could make your symptoms worse

  6. Having a “gut feeling” that not all of your symptoms are related to Lyme and co-infections…

There is no other book like this on the market. Brief and easy to comprehend, NOURISH, HEAL, THRIVE: A comprehensive and holistic guide when living with Lyme disease (published October 2016) explores why certain foods heal or harm when dealing with digestive challenges, secondary gut infections, multiple food intolerances and the impact of gut flora on Lyme symptoms.

This unique book is a great read for individuals, family member, friends and alternative health practitioners alike, as it provides easy-to-understand insight into the complexities associated with chronic Lyme-related infections and long-term antibiotic use.

Consider it a complement to M.D.s’ therapeutic Lyme treatment protocols, Rika Keck’s solutions are designed to increase energy and reignite brain focus while optimizing blood sugar balance.

This nutritional guide is valuable especially in regards to common challenges associated with food intolerances, harmful bacterial and fungal overgrowth, chronic digestive and gallbladder troubles, joint pain, the ability to get eliminate toxins in the body and brain, optimal blood sugar balance and chronic fatigue, esp. regarding the adrenal and thyroid glands, and the energy-producing mitochondria in our cells.

Disappointed with previous nutritional guidance? Feeling misunderstood? You’ll read and implement these science-based suggestions with a renewed sense of hope that change for the better is possible.
