What is Medical Nutrition Therapy?

Medical Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Registered Dietitians and nutritionists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows these professionals to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Medical Nutrition Therapy is recognized as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and well-being. Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalized nutrition and lifestyle programs rather than a “one-size-fits-all” approach.
