Medical Nutrition Therapy can help improve your lifestyle and wellbeing.

So, what is Medical Nutrition Therapy?

Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT), is a therapeutic approach to treating certain chronic conditions and health issues through an individually-tailored nutrition plan. This nutrition plan is developed by our Registered Dietitians and is based on your medical history, health condition, lifestyle and goals.
