Nutritional Counseling

Longfellow Health Center offers both Holistic Nutritional Counseling and Conventional Nutritional Counseling.  Conventional Nutrition is made up of Registered Dietitians (RD's) who typically adhere to government regulated American Dietetic Association guidelines.  They follow these guidelines to teach how to make healthier dietary substitutions and meal plans.  RD's counsel patients on general nutrition and can help to design patient-specific menus. 

Holistic Nutrition does not use numbers such as calorie counting, or endorse one type of diet or specific supplement.  Using real food from nature and natural cleansing methods, Holistic Nutrtion can help you to lose weight, enhance your natural beauty, and prevent & heal sickness and disease.
