So, what is Medical Nutrition Therapy?
What we eat is an important part of our life. It affects how we feel, how our bodies heal, how our brains function, how we sleep, how we look, how we move… Knowing what you eat and how it impacts your life will empower you to make healthier choices and help you feel better.
Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is a therapeutic approach to preventing or treating certain chronic conditions and health issues through an individually-tailored nutrition plan.
Your MNT nutrition plan is developed by our Registered Dietitians and is based on your medical history, health condition, lifestyle and goals.
