If my child is overweight, should I address it or hope he will just outgrow it?
Dealing with overweight children requires special care and knowledge. While obesity is a health threat, improper treatment may actually promote more intractable food issues later. We are experienced in the special physical and psychological needs of children. Our philosophy is to correct the behavior that is causing the accelerated weight gain and to allow most children to grow into their weight. If a weight loss program is required, a balanced meal plan with adequate variety and portion control can be designed to meet your child’s needs. The focus is on appropriate eating and behaviors, not on “dieting”.

My doctor says my blood sugar level is elevated. Can you help me?

We will work directly with your physician to help make changes that promote control. Our individualized care is what makes controlling diabetes successful.

Does my insurance cover medical nutrition therapy?
Many insurance companies will cover medical related nutrition therapy with a physician’s recommendation (prescription). Some insurance companies may cover “wellness” or “preventive medicine.” You will want to contact your insurance company to determine your coverage or for preauthorization.

I am training for a marathon. What nutritional supplements should I use?
