Any person who has any doubt about how and what to eat to achieve optimum health for their individual needs could benefit from speaking with a Registered Dietitian.
In addition to being a source of health knowledge, Registered Dietitians can also help correct imbalances that may already be a concern for you. Bloating, heart burn, high cholesterol, skin rashes and weight gain are just a few of the many conditions that can be corrected through proper nutrition.

A personalized nutrition plan is an excellent complement to your current health approach. Modern medicine can tend to focus on symptom management rather than root cause and often overlooks the effects of nutrition on both health and illness.
