Nutritional Consultation

At the office of NutriD in Southern Medical Suites, we provide nutritional consultations to help patients improve their diets in support of optimal health and function.

The importance of a healthy diet

While the expression, “Food is Medicine” is an ancient one, the importance of proper nutrition and a healthy diet remains as valid today as when those words were first uttered by the father of Western medicine, Hippocrates, some 2500 years ago.

Wise, nutritious food choices not only enhance digestive function and metabolism, but also help to alleviate inflammation, boost the immune system, and increase one’s energy level. Furthermore, by combining a healthy, well-balanced diet with staying active, the risks and consequences of conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, and others are also reduced.

Some of the most common reasons to seek nutritional guidance and support from our office include:

  • To protect one’s health by developing a better understanding of nutrition and making smarter food choices
  • Food allergies and intolerances
  • Digestive problems
  • Weight loss or weight management concerns
  • Diabetes and blood sugar issues
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Low energy levels, lethargy
  • Fertility problems
  • Skin complaints
  • To help address eating disorders
  • To enhance athletic performance

What to expect from a nutritional consultation

Whether you’ve independently decided that it’s time to improve your diet, or another healthcare professional has referred you to our office, we’re well equipped to help. We’ll carefully review your current diet, medical history, any risk factors for disease, health concerns, and relevant lifestyle information to assess your case. We may also ask you to keep a daily log for a short period of time to get a snapshot of your meal, beverage, and snacking routines.

How we can help improve your diet and nutrition

Our practice offers essential guidance on the macronutrients and micronutrients your body needs to do all the work of growing, maintaining, and repairing itself. We’ll also recommend foods that offer anti-inflammatory as well as other health benefits and tell you which foods need to be reduced or eliminated from your diet. And, based upon the specific needs of your case, we’ll develop an individualized plan of care that includes dietary and menu recommendations along with ways in which you can optimize your nutrient intake. Frequently, we suggest safe, beneficial supplements such as specific vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, and enzymes to further support your overall well-being.

As a skilled provider of care, our dietician understands the complex relationships between food, metabolism, and health. Our plans are simple to understand and offer a realistic approach to daily eating. Plus, we’re always on hand to answer your questions, address your concerns, and provide follow-up care to monitor your progress.
