Learn About PrimalMed

Welcome to PrimalMed

Thank you for choosing PrimalMed for your Health and Wellness Consulting needs. At PrimalMed, we want to work with you and collaborate with you to help you find YOUR PrimalMed Prescription.™

The PrimalMed team currently consists of a board-certified MD and RD, however, we are only licensed in the State of Connecticut, therefore any virtual, remote consulting via telephone or video is considered NON medical advice. Our discussions cannot be considered Medical Diagnosis or Treatment, but rather falls into the category of “consulting and coaching.” The nutrition, and lifestyle and medical opinions are based on over 30 years of experience in the medical and nutrition fields with a current focus on merging Primal and Ancestral Principles with Modern Science and the emerging field of Personalized and Precision Medical and Nutritional Epigenetics.

Dr. Metzger is a certified Primal Health Coach and Kion Health Coach, having studied with Mark Sisson and Ben Greenfield, leaders in the Primal and Ancestral space. Dr. Metzger is currently studying at the Apeiron Academy with Dr. Dan Stickler to become expert in the field of Epigenetic coaching and medical and nutritional applications. Ellen Metzger MS, RD is a functional and integrative registered dietitian who has completed training and is certified with the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy (IFNA) and owner of Nutrition and Wellness Consulting , LLC, a private nutrition practice in Connecticut. She is currently studying at the School of Applied Functional Medicine.

Your PrimalMed Prescription™ looks at all of the functional components in helping you become the best version of yourself... be it through body, mind or spirit. We help you look at all functional pillars including diet and exercise, stress mitigation, and sleep optimization.

We will work with you to create your own PrimalMed MAP (Motivation, Accountability and Practice). We only take on a few clients every month so that we may be fully committed towards investing in your progress.

Meet the PrimalMed Team



Ted S. Metzger, MD  - CEO and co-founder

As a Physician and Radiologist, I image and diagnose with increasing frequency, fatty liver, carotid and coronary artery disease, as well as the manifestations of obesity, diabetes, cancer and neurodegenerative disease. This is truly a modern epidemic. I am committed, (with my wife  who is a functional IFNA trained MS RD) to create PrimalMed, a collaborative practice that aims to educate, advocate, and champion diet/lifestyle/exercise patterns that complement our genetic blueprints. Your body is supercomputer and what you eat and how you move and even how you think is the software code. At PrimalMed, we will work with you to "feed your genes" and achieve optimal health and wellness.
