We Pair Nutrition and Medicine for Best Results
We practice Integrative and Functional Medicine and Nutrition because our goal is to uncover the root cause of your health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms. Research and experience have shown that nutrition and gut health are vital to healing and that most people greatly benefit from working with a dietitian, often getting better much quicker.
Since nutrition is key, we ask that new patients meet with our Functional and Integrative Registered Dietitian, Rachel Wood, in addition to a medical provider. Rachel will coordinate with your provider to get your medical history and create the most appropriate nutrition plan for you or your child to start alongside the medical treatment plan. Nutrition sessions can be held at the office, by phone, or via Zoom video conference for your convenience. If requested, we will make every effort to schedule your nutrition visit the same day as your provider visit.
Meeting with Rachel will benefit you in several ways:
- The nutrition visits may result in shorter initial or follow-up provider visits, saving you money.
- Nutrition visits can often be scheduled sooner than provider visits, allowing you to get started with the healing process. You may even be able to discuss symptom improvement and go deeper into the medical treatment plan during provider visits.
- You get a more comprehensive conversation about food and nutrition, along with practical ways to start incorporating changes right away.
