NUTRITION COUNSELING

The Facts:

There is a growing body of research that indicates the link between stable mental health and optimum nutrition.  Food and nutrition have recently been identified as playing a role in some specific mental illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and Alzheimer’s disease.  Additionally, in the treatment of eating disorders, nutrition plays an important role in re-stabilizing the body and brain so therapy and medication can be more effective. Within this model: Food can be viewed as a type of medicine to total body and mind wellness.

Why Choose Integrated Care Clinic for Nutrition and Dietitian Services?

The brain and gut contain the majority of our body’s neurotransmitters, including serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline.  These play a vital role in regulating mood, concentration, energy, and stress levels. The nutrition and dietitian services at Integrated Care Clinic utilize education, meal planning, weight management, and strategies that not only help balance health concerns – but also integrate mental health wellness into how we relate to food.  We integrate evidence-based techniques including mindful and intuitive eating to help reduce destructive habits and improve your overall relationship with food. Our Registered Dietitians are experts on how to best incorporate nutrition to improve your mental and medical health as a whole.

What Makes Us Different

There is an abundance of diet and nutrition information out there. At times, it can be overwhelming to sift through and understand what is factual and what is simply a fad. Our Registered Dietitian will provide you with accurate and relevant information that will support your overall health. She has received extensive education and training related to how the body processes nutrients.  She is also licensed in the state of Florida, which protects you as the consumer from illegitimate vendors and counselors.

Not all nutrition education is the same. It is important to understand that anyone can call themselves a “nutritionist” as this term is not regulated by any licensing board. There are definitely qualified nutritionists that are not registered dietitians; however, in order to protect your health and well-being you must become informed of every provider’s qualifications.  A licensed professional has been given the blessing from the state or nation to treat and care for every individual pertaining to their field of expertise.  Our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist has completed over 6 years of education and training in order to provide you with the highest quality dietitian counseling services.
