What you eat affects your risk of developing heart disease and poor blood circulation, which can lead to strokes or heart attacks. Heart disease is the number 1 killer of American men and women, with strokes being number three. If you are already at risk of heart disease or stroke, you need to develop a diet and nutritional plan to prevent that risk from increasing. We assist our clients by educating them about foods and nutritional plans which are best suited and proven to help reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke.
Healthy kidneys are vitally important for the human body! When kidneys malfunction, you run the risk of renal failure, which can result in abnormal fluid levels in the body, deranged acidic levels, and heightened levels of potassium, calcium, hematuria (blood in urine), anemia, and even death.
Considering bariatric surgery? Pre-surgery assessments and post-surgery nutrition education is not only important, but usually an insurance requirement. We will work with your surgeon’s office to help you meet the insurance companies requirements as they pertain to your policy.
Celiac disease is a condition where a person experiences an allergic reaction to gluten or cross-contaminated products. Gluten, which is found in wheat, barley, rye, and possibly some oats, causes damage in the lining of the small intestines and prevents the allergic person from absorbing parts of food which are required for staying healthy. A gluten-free nutritional plan is the best way to prevent an attack.
We counsel and educate our clients about the presence of gluten in every day foods. Whether you are newly diagnosed, or a long-time sufferer of celiac disease, we can help you find healthy solutions for this condition.
Controlling your cholesterol and blood pressure are vital to good health and preventing heart disease or stroke.
