Why Nutrition Counseling?
Food nourishes us not only on a physical level, but on mental and emotional levels also. Nutrition Services can help you bring all aspects of your life together and balance them to help you live a healthier lifestyle. Whether you want to improve your everyday eating habits or you need expertise on how to treat or manage a disease, Nutrition Services is here for you to be the best you can be.
What can I expect from Nutrition Counseling?
Our licensed registered dietitian provides nutrition management of high cholesterol, diabetes, pre-diabetes, obesity, hypertension, childhood obesity, failure to thrive, sport nutrition, weight loss, food allergies, renal disease, weight loss surgery, and many more.
With a foundation based on trustworthy, science-based food and nutrition information as well as experience in the field, our dietitian stays up to date with current nutrition trends and developments. She can provide an educated, well-grounded nutrition counseling approach to filter out false information you may hear from the media.
Our dietitian sees the dignity of each patient along with his or her unique nutritional needs. No two people are alike, so why should they be treated that way? During the initial visit, she will determine you and your body’s needs and help you develop a plan that fits your lifestyle. This approach is successful because it doesn’t force patients to follow a list of do’s and don’ts. Instead, you are provided with essential nutrition tools for a healthy lifestyle: food label reading, grocery shopping tips, food preparation, and more.
