“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be they food.” – Hippocrates
Nutritional Counseling & Weight Management Programs are designed by a nutritionist trained to recognize your biochemical individuality. Integrative Nutrition is a holistic, individualized approach to assessing, preventing, and treating complex chronic diseases through modifications in the diet. Combining the knowledge of traditional clinical dietetics with functional medicine training, an integrative nutritionist evaluates the interaction between your diet, environment, lifestyle, and genetic predisposition. Treatment is patient centered versus disease centered, allowing the nutritionist to provide a unique diet plan customized to achieve optimal health.
