Dietary and Nutrition Consultations
Kids and nutrition
Whether you are addressing a specific health concern or simply want to make certain your child is getting the nutrients his or her growing body needs, a nutrition consultation is one of the best things you can do for your child. From birth through adolescence your child’s nutritional needs are always changing. Many childhood health problems can be prevented or addressed with a nourishing diet. Eczema, food allergies, obesity, failure to thrive, behavioral issues, developmental delays, digestive disorders, eating disorders and acne are just some of the health concerns that can be addressed through diet. Nutrition consultations can also address issues surrounding picky eaters and are great for parents who want to help build healthy eating habits early on. Prenatal appointments are also available for Mothers-to-Be!
Adults and nutrition
Nutrition is a key component to adult health and well being. Many chronic health issues can be prevented, supported, and often alleviated via dietary intervention. Conditions such as Obesity, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes Type II and other blood sugar issues can often be completely reversed simply with dietary changes. Nutrition also plays a key role in reducing painful inflammation that is associated with so many of today’s chronic illnesses such as arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disease. For those of us who just feel ‘tired and stressed all the time’, a nutrition consultation is a perfect place to start feeling better and more energized. Food is powerful and can positively affect our health from the inside out!
