Holistic Nutrition Counseling

Nourish Your Body, Rejuvenate Your Life

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Are chronic illnesses, low energy and fatigue keeping you from enjoying  life? Holistic nutrition counseling can help. Food is essential to your health and well-being; however, figuring out what you should eat can be confusing and  overwhelming. Our holistic nutrition specialist will guide you to eat for your health, lose weight, feel great and increase your longevity.

Nourish Your Body,
Save Your Life

Almost everyone has heard the saying “You are what you eat.” This is the essence of holistic nutrition. However, many people do not realize how true this  saying is. The body is constantly making new cells. When these cells are properly nourished, your health improves. Holistic nutrition is all about eating healthy food for optimum health and well- being

An Ayurvedic proverb sums up the importance of a healthy, well-balanced diet. “When diet is wrong, medicine is of  no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.” Research has shown that chronic diseases can be prevented  and reversed with good nutrition. Diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes, result from  poor lifestyle choices and a poor diet. For this reason, it is essential that you eat healthy to achieve optimal health and mind- body wellness, one bite at a time.

Your first appointment will be approximately an hour to an hour and a half. During this time, the nutritionist will discuss your health and complete a detailed assessment based on your unique history, symptoms, conditions, eating preferences and lifestyle choices.

Our board-certified nutritionist will work with you to create a customized meal plan that is nutritionally sound, and easy to follow.

Body Composition Testing with the
In Body Analyzer

The InBody Scale is the latest in cutting edge technology, which we use for our patients. The human body is composed of four main components: water, proteins, fats and minerals. The InBody Test provides a comprehensive view of body composition balance of these components.

Our InBody 570 uses BIA Technology (bioelectrical impedance analysis). Our test provides comprehensive muscle and fat diagnosis that are essential in monitoring health. The test results show segmental muscle and fat analysis that allows you to clearly understand the distribution and where you need to focus on muscle and fat development. Most forms of body composition testing are usually aimed at measuring a person’s fat tissue. This can be a very useful tool in guiding fat loss strategies. Some types of body composition testing also assess muscle mass.
