Nutrition

Overview


The Nutrition Student Teaching Clinic is currently offering free online nutrition consultations. Students are conducting supervised clinical sessions using the Zoom for Healthcare, a secure platform that meets industry standards for privacy in health-related communication. Appointments take place twice per month and can be scheduled for prospective clients living in Maryland and Virginia. By using smartphones or computers from the comfort of their homes, clients can expect the same level of care that they would receive during an on-campus session in our Natural Care Center.

Integrative nutritionists use science-based diet and nutrition therapies to support your personal health and well-being. They recognize that individualized nutrition is essential to health and their integrative approach is not limited to one dietary theory. Their support may include the use of conventional and non-conventional dietary philosophies rooted in traditional practice and scientific evidence.

Food can be powerful medicine, affecting your overall health and vitality as well as every function of your body. In fact, what you eat and drink literally becomes the very substance of your body. Whole foods, eaten and prepared properly, can effect profound changes in mind, body, and spirit.
