How Nutrition Counseling Can Benefit You
Proper nutrition is the foundation for good health. It not only provides us with the energy we need to power our system, but proper nutrition is instrumental in preventing and overcoming disease and managing chronic conditions. Each person’s individual nutritional needs can vary drastically. Whether you are an athlete looking to improve performance, or are dealing with a chronic disease or food sensitivity, our counselors tailor to what is best for you. That’s what our service is all about. Meet our Health & Wellness Coaches

Weight Management & Reduction: We can work with you to identify reasons you have been unable to achieve a healthy body weight and help you to set up an individualized plan for changes that will help you to gradually and naturally achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. We don’t use fad diets, but instead, teach you to use healthy foods, in the right amounts, and an individualized exercise and stress reduction plan that allows your body to achieve a healthy weight.
Preventing and Managing Disease: We provide Medical Nutrition Therapy based on the most current scientific research to help you prevent or manage diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, thyroid disease, high blood pressure, autoimmune disorders, and many others. Your nutritionist will work with you to assess your current lifestyle and help you develop a plan for healthy eating and exercise which gives you the best outcomes in prevention or management of your condition.
Sports Nutrition: We can help you to build the best diet for fueling your body and recovery after exercise, whether you are trying to get the most out of your daily workouts, or training for an elite competition. Choosing the right foods, in the right amounts, at the right times can help you to feel stronger and perform better.
Food Allergies or Sensitivities: We can help you to design a healthy, balanced diet, while working around food allergies, and help you to identify hidden sources of a particular allergen. We can also help you to identify food sensitivities that you were unaware of, which may be contributing to your symptoms. We can recommend food sensitivity testing and then work with you to develop a balanced meal plan for helping your body to heal.
Gluten Free, Vegetarian or Vegan Lifestyle Guidance: Whether you are currently practicing, or thinking about making a change to your lifestyle, our nutritionists are here to help you make healthy substitutions and ensure you are incorporating balance and good nutrition in the absence of meat, dairy, or gluten.
Supplement Selection/Guidance: Our nutritionists are knowledgeable about many various supplements and can help you to sort out which may be beneficial or detrimental to your body, health condition, or sport.
Cooking Classes: Whether you love to cook or hate it, we can teach you ways to plan a healthy diet, shop for the foods you want, and prepare them in quick, healthy ways. You will learn basic cooking techniques and how to combine foods at meals and snacks that fit into your time and financial budget. We focus on ways to maximize nutrition benefits through ingredient selection and healthy cooking techniques.
Pantry Purge: includes a home visit where we will assess your food options at home and make a grocery list of healthy alternatives.
