Nervous About Discussing Your Nutrition Habits? Don’t Be!
A nutrition counseling session may never be like getting a massage, but it doesn’t have to be torture, either. A good nutrition consultation shouldn’t feel like a lecture about what you should be doing, and you shouldn’t feel as though you’re being scolded or judged on your eating habits, either.
At Salson Clinics, we strive to make nutrition counseling as enjoyable and helpful as possible. We take the time to listen closely and to understand where you are right now in terms of your lifestyle and diet, and work with you to help achieve your goals. Nutrition counseling creates individual action plans to help you adopt a healthier lifestyle.
Who Can Benefit from a Nutrition Consult?
Lots of people can benefit from working with a medical professional, for many different reasons—whether you need a complete diet overhaul, are looking to manage a medical condition, want to fine-tune your food choices, or get inspiration for new, healthy recipes. It’s best to book a nutrition consultation after a check-up with our primary care provider. That can help inform whether you have any specific conditions that can be addressed with nutrition, such as elevated blood sugar or cholesterol, or blood pressure issues.
While some patients come in for a nutrition consultation to learn more about how their food choices affect their health, others end up in our clinic at their doctor’s suggestion. The following are just a few of the conditions that can benefit specifically from dietary interventions.
