Nutrition Counseling and Education Services

Most people are inundated on a daily basis with nutrition information from multiple sources. Some is accurate, some is not, and much of it changes weekly. However, there is one nutrition truth that stands the test of time: EVERYBODY EATS – EVERYDAY!

This simple truth can make the transition from sifting through the myriad of information, to meeting health goals, overwhelming at times.

The Registered Dietitian at MCH offers nutrition counseling and education to help meet health goals related to the following:

  • Weight Loss – lose weight and keep it off!
  • Heart Health – including managing high blood pressure or cholesterol, improvement of blood lipid values.
  • Gastrointestinal Dysfunction – including IBS, Celiac disease, Reflux, or managing other food allergies or intolerances.
  • Pregnancy/Lactation – preparing for baby, nutrition by trimester, and healthy breastfeeding.
  • Cancer – managing side effects and maintaining nutrition during and after treatment.
  • Kidney Disease – eating to maintain kidney function or nutrition during dialysis.
  • Wellness – nutrition for optimal health, prevention of disease, and nutrition through aging.
  • Diabetes – MCH offers a comprehensive self-management program - details can be found here.
  • Metabolic rate testing is also available through an appointment with a Registered Dietitian.
