Our team takes an integrative and comprehensive approach to nutrition therapy that gets straight to the nutrition-related health problems your patients face.
Programs are directed by credentialed health-care professionals and address concerns such as:
• Metabolic Syndrome
• Heart Disease, Lipid Disorders
• Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes
• Morbid Obesity
• Inflammatory Bowel Disease
• Irritable Bowel Disease
• Celiac Disease
• Crohn’s Disease
• Ulcerative Colitis
• Autoimmune Disorders
• Pre and Post Bariatric Surgery Nutrition Care
• Help calculating nutrient needs for patients on Nutrition Support
The Vitality Approach is unique in that it combines one to one dietetic counseling with hands on instruction in food preparation and cooking. Our practitioners are trained in motivational interviewing, which is the most effective method of guiding patients to making behavioral changes. Patients become empowered to eat healthfully and learn skills to make life long lifestyle changes.
We also have optional lab testing available for micro-nutrient testing.
Additionally, we offer vitamin, mineral, antioxidant and immune analysis. Lab results come from SpectraCell Laboratories.
We accept most major insurance plans for the medical nutrition therapy portion of our programs.
Classes emphasize preparation of whole plant-based foods including vegetables, legumes, whole grains and fruits. Research supports that these nourishing foods should make up at least 75% of your daily intake. The other 25% high-quality proteins. It is the foundation of good nutrition.
We also offer other wellness services that are stress-reducing and mindfulness into your patients lives. For many patients restorative interventions like yoga, mindfulness meditation can improve quality of life, including overall health, pain, mental state, perceived stress and energy.
