Owner - Star Energetics, Inc.
Diana L. DaGrosa has been in the health field for over 27 years, her entire career. At the early age of 11, her goal was to be a highly competitive multi-faceted athlete. Early on her father had told her the stories of Jim Thorpe and how her grandfather had attempted to have Jim’s Olympic Gold Medals returned to him. The exceptionalism of Jim Thorpe, “The World’s Greatest Athlete”, drove her passion to excel in athletics and life endeavors. With her appetite for athletics and drive to excel, she and her twin sister created extensive training regimes outside of their regular team sports. Training 8+ hours a day became the norm. This was also long before school had proper guidance and gave little thought to techniques for enhancing repair and recovery. Unfortunately at the time, her chosen diet was terribly incorrect and without ample dietary fats or proteins required for a young female athlete. Without adequate nutrition, she encountered repeated minor injuries which then led to a severe injury early in life which blocked her dream of high level competition. Nutrient deficiency, anemia & basic malnourishment therefore led her to seek out a more comprehensive understanding of health, fitness and nutrition.
Her love of sport led her to study health and fitness at Springfield College, the originator of the Spirit, Mind & Body philosophy, where she earned her Bachelors of Science in Health & Exercise. She then went to live in Japan teaching exercise for 5 years and immersing herself in the Japanese culture and learning their food choices and customs. While in Japan, it heightened her interested in herbal medicine and acupuncture. When she returned to the USA, she studied additional healing modalities and body work. After years of implementation and the thirst for more knowledge, she returned to school for Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture and received her 4 year Master’s Degree from the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture. In 2003, she opened her wellness center in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she continues to treat patients with Applied Clinical Nutrition, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Over the last 17 years, she has continuously added to her education, experience and knowledge in nutrition by attending numerous advanced seminars in concepts and application of nutrition, in functional medicine and in functional endocrinology. She has earned the NCCAOM’s Certification of “Diplomate of Acupuncture”.
Her predominant philosophy is: where there is an imbalance in the body, there is a history to unravel and symptoms of ill health are the manifestation of underlying causes. In practice, she systematically uncovers the mystery surrounding each patient to reveal the underlying root cause of imbalances and uses food therapy, nutritional & herbal supplementation to help balance the body, therefore it can heal itself naturally. She educates her patients on proper food choices, along with the proper uses of the high quality and cutting edge products she has available which are formulated to work at the mitochondrial level of the body’s cells. She believes, that if she had the knowledge of nutrition she presently has plus superior nutrition supplements to sufficiently fortify her and re-fuel her body, that repair and recovery would have been possible. She is confident that these products will assist her patients to realize their dreams!
