Nutritional counseling combines supplements and herbals into traditional nutrition support. A session with a dietitian starts with a series of open-ended questions to understand your daily schedule, thoughts, nutritional barriers and current diet. The dietitian will suggest plant-based diets, whole grains and limited sodium intake.
