Nutrition is the science that examines the link between and individual diet and its resulting levels of health. Nutrition therapy can teach you how to use food to encourage the body's natural detoxification process, re-balance vitamin / mineral deficiencies and restore healthy digestion. A Licensed Dietitian or Nutritionist can analyze the elements of a diet that may be missing and teach you how to make changes in your meal plans that can restore your body's balance and form the foundation of your overall health.
Nutrition therapy can be helpful to address the following medical issues and many other health concerns:
Medical Nutrition Therapy is an ongoing process in which a Licensed Dietitian or Nutritionist works with you to assess your usual dietary intake and identify areas where change is needed. The dietitian can provide information, educational materials, support, and follow-up to help you make and maintain the needed dietary changes. In making dietary changes, each patient's situation and background must be carefully considered. Factors that affect food decisions include ethnic background, religion, group affiliation, socioeconomic status, and world views.
The initial dietary assessment and interview provide the basis for identifying behaviors that need changed. You and the dietitian will work together to identify areas where change is needed, prioritize changes, and problem-solve as to how to make the changes. Making dietary changes is a gradual process. You may start with one or two easier dietary changes the first few weeks and gradually make additional or more difficult changes over several weeks or months.
