Nutrition Counseling and Care in the Management of Cardiovascular Diseases
Lifestyle factors, including nutrition, play an important role in the etiology of Cardiovascular Diseases.
While there is a range of genetic and other factors influencing cardiovascular diseases, the strongest factors for these conditions are generally dietary and lifestyle behaviors.
Hence, we use medical nutrition therapy and targeted lifestyle interventions to treat, manage, and slow the progression and worsening of conditions associated with cardiovascular diseases.
We target these specific metabolic abnormalities, assess each client’s medical condition and match individual needs with the most suitable nutrition and lifestyle-based interventions.
As such, the services we provide are based on latest scientific evidence, personal medical data of our clients, and the most up-to-date, best-practice methods to conceive a diet and lifestyle change specifically for each client.
