Your Health Matters

Providing one-on-one client consults, as well as medical case reviews for physicians, health coaches, and other complimentary care providers, ReCode Nutrition is committed to forming relationships with those who are looking to improve health outcomes & potential for recovery. 

Located in Bellevue, Washington ReCode Nutrition was founded in 2017 and is owned and operated by Sue Bentsen, LLC providing in-office and telehealth services world wide.


After completing a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, Sue gained diverse clinical experiences working in specialties that included bone marrow transplant, post-partum care, and occupational health. These unique areas of practice fostered a passion for health promotion along with an interest in environmental toxicology, epigenetics,
disease prevention and risk assessment.

More than a decade ago, Sue was introduced to Functional Medicine in the process of treating her own health issues. This inspired her to pursue a Master of Science degree in Functional Medicine and Human Nutrition where she graduated with distinction, while also completing an advanced Nutrition Residency with Dr. Kara Fitzgerald.

Sue’s interest in complex illness and neuro-immunology was founded early in her career and continues today. She was among the first group of clinicians to become certified in a Dr. Dale Bredesen’s protocol aimed at the prevention and reversal of Alzheimer’s Disease (ReCODE). Having a family member and countless friends impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease, Sue is passionate about education, early screening and intervention. Sue co-created the public FB forum, Vital Minds for Life where she hopes others will be inspired to adopt health promoting diet and lifestyle measures.
