Medical Nutrition Therapy

Medical Nutrition Therapy an evidence-based medical approach to treating certain chronic conditions

Medical Nutrition Therapy

Medical Nutrition Therapy is the right nutrition therapy in conjunction with medical therapy. Medical Nutrition Therapy can reduce your need for medications and help you feel better.  Nutrition impacts overall health outcomes. 

As a Registered and Licensed Dietitian, I can prescribe a nutritional plan specific to your medical needs.  My lengthy experience as a Clinical Dietitian ranged from a heart-healthy diet to prescribing nutrition support for critically ill patients who were unable to eat.  Collaborating with Physicians and ancillary staff about the best nutrition prescription for a patient.  This knowledge and ongoing relationship with Physicians allows me to bring these evidence-based nutrition plans to you.  Some nutrition-related diagnoses include, but are not exclusive:

  • Pre Diabetes, Diabetes

  • Dyslipidemia – High cholesterol, High Triglycerides

  • Gastrointestinal disorders – Celiac, Crohns, GERD, Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Fatty Liver
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

  • Hypertension – High blood pressure
  • Food Allergies

Feeling good from the inside out

Often people inquire about losing weight first in order to improve their medical health.  Instead, together we will shift focus to a nutrition plan that can improve their medical numbers, while taking into account weight goals.  When the body is properly nourished, there may be a noticeable shift to how you feel.  Improvement in digestion, energy and clarity in your thoughts.  This process is individualized using tools including

  • Nutrition data tracking to gain better understanding how food is medicine

  • Specific dietary meal plans to guide you to better health

  • Optional Lab Work to monitor your blood values
  • Evaluate your vitamin and mineral needs and intake for optimal support

Helping you feel your best once again

Weight loss may be an important part of your medical plan, but we can work together to set realistic and time appropriate goals. A weight loss of 5-7% has shown to improve blood sugars and blood pressure.  While reducing inflammatory responses in the body.  By implementing the right nutrition therapy along with activity and lifestyle modifications you can feel better!
