What is Nutrition Counseling? Nutrition counseling answers questions you may not know how to ask. Have you ever been told you are ‘intolerant’ to something, perhaps gluten or dairy? Or worse, have you been told your child has an allergy and you are unsure what to do? You may also have gone to the doctor stating you do not feel well but all your tests came back normal. You may have questions like, what the heck is gluten and how do I avoid it? Does sugar really cause inflammation in the body? How do I get healthier meals in my busy lifestyle? Perhaps you just want to make better choices for you and your family. Like you, we are grateful for the advancements in medicine. Unfortunately, sometimes medical advice seems to leave us with more questions than answers!
