YOUR PATH TO HOLISTIC HEALING
About Vital Aspirations
Danielle Cheplowitz AGPCNP-BC
I’m a nurse practitioner, wife, mother, and a believer in holistic healing. My special interest is in women's health and fertility. I am devoted to assisting others in reaching their optimal health potential.
I completed my Bachelors of Science in Nursing in 2009 at Towson University. I went on to work as a registered nurse at the University of Maryland Medical Center in the NeuroCare Intensive Care Unit. While working as a RN, I began taking graduate level classes at the University of Maryland School of Nursing in Baltimore. I completed my Masters in Nursing with concentration in Adult and Geriatric Primary Care Health in 2013. I became board certified as an Adult and Gerontological Primary Care Nurse Practitioner in 2014 by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and have been in practice since that time.
When I began practicing as a nurse practitioner in primary care, I realized that my conventional medical training provided me with tools to alleviate and manage symptoms of chronic disease, but I was not taught how to find the underlying root cause of the chronic disease. I became frustrated with the current healthcare model, and felt that I did not have enough time to properly address my client's chronic healthcare needs. I am passionate about optimizing lifestyle through dietary modifications, reducing environmental toxicant exposure, and managing stress. After discovering integrative medicine for my own health, I became passionate about making this service more available to others.
In addition to my Master’s level training, I am currently working on certifications through the Institute for Functional Medicine. I have studied Fertility Optimization through the Integrative Women's Health Institute. Additionally, I am also certified in Meditation through the KEW Academy, and am currently working on certifications in Reiki and Acupressure.
I love spending time with my husband, Brett, and our daughter Maeve. I enjoy being outside, walking and exercising, boating, cooking, and reading. I value education, and continue to seek new learning opportunities every day.
I love empowering and motivating clients to understand what their bodies need so that they can thrive, not just survive. As a practitioner of integrative medicine, I enjoy being able to bridge the gap between western medicine and functional medicine, while providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which to heal. My goal is to help my client see that his/her body is resilient, and that it can absolutely achieve its natural homeostasis.

A Unique Approach
Nourish the soil before planting the seed
If you are looking to become pregnant in the next three or more months, this service is invaluable. Here you will learn how to enhance your diet, lifestyle, and balance hormones prior to conception. Not only is this helpful for optimizing fertility, but this is essential when looking to grow and nourish a thriving, vital child. This consultation also offers you more than just your "standard" blood testing. Here you will have the option to assess your micronutrient status, as well as other functional testing to screen for barriers to conceiving.
Our bodies have the innate ability to heal themselves and
I strive to remove the obstacles.
Is it taking longer than you and your partner thought it would to conceive a child? If you would like to learn how to optimize your fertility naturally as well as your overall health, this service is for you. You can expect a thorough intake and evaluation of you and your partner's past medical and lifestyle history during your initial visit. You will receive a plan of care with recommended conventional and functional medicine testing to complete. In addition to standard blood tests, other diagnostics may include DUTCH (hormone) testing, stool testing, food sensitivity testing, and genetic testing. You will be provided with recommendations to increase fertility based upon your symptomatology and lab results. Please note that this service does not provide the use of artificial assisted reproductive technology. If you are already undergoing artificial assisted reproductive technology with a Reproductive Endocrinologist, this service is still a wonderful adjunct to those therapies.
POSTPARTUM REPLETION CONSULTATION
Refueling your mind and body after baby
This service is for the mother who is looking to restore her health after the birth of her child. Your body has just built and nourished a brand new human--how amazing, congratulations!!
If nutrients were scarce at times during pregnancy, your body may have used the calcium from your bones to build baby's bones, and the fatty acids from your brain to build baby's brain! Whether you breastfeed, pump milk, or formula feed, it is so important to refill YOUR OWN nutrient stores so that you can perform and feel your best each day. Here we will address the infamous "baby brain", as well as other chronic ailments that may be inhibiting your body's ability to function optimally. Diagnostic work up will involve laboratory testing of nutrients, as well as other functional medicine testing if appropriate. Organs targeted for healing will include the liver, intestines, and brain. Treatment plans will include dietary, lifestyle, supplemental, and herbal recommendations based on your unique biology.
