Nutritional Counseling Q&A

What is nutritional counseling?

Nutritional counseling describes services that evaluate and help improve your nutritional needs. This therapeutic approach is part of the wellness services available at Envizion Medical to help you enhance your overall health and achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

The nutrition experts also provide resources to identify underlying health issues that may be causing nutritional deficiencies and treatments to correct them.

Why should I consider nutritional counseling?

Your diet and eating habits can have a negative effect on chronic health conditions like:

  • Obesity
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure

Poor nutrition can also increase your risk of developing these diseases.

You should consider nutritional counseling if you already have chronic health conditions and need to stay in better control of your condition. In some cases, you may even be able to treat your health without medications through dietary changes.

Nutritional counseling is also beneficial for people who are trying to lose weight. As part of their medical weight loss program, the team at Envizion Medical offers nutritional counseling to support healthy weight loss.

The team also recommends nutritional counseling to those who are interested in improving their overall health and wellness, resetting their metabolism, and boosting their energy levels.

What happens during my initial nutritional counseling consultation?

During your initial nutritional counseling consultation, the Envizion Medical team spends time reviewing your personal and family medical histories. They also perform a physical exam and blood testing to identify nutritional deficiencies.

Your nutritional counseling consultation also involves:

Diagnostic testing

In-office food allergy testing is also available to determine if you have sensitivities or intolerances to certain foods. Allergic reactions can lead to inflammation in your digestive system and unwanted weight gain.

Diet planning

Once your exam and testing are complete, the nutritionists work closely with you on a plan to incorporate more fresh foods into your daily diet. They also teach you how to limit sugars, carbohydrates, and empty calories in your diet and avoid any foods that cause an allergic reaction.

Intravenous (IV) therapy

In addition to diet changes, you can benefit from the B12 injections and IV therapies available at Envizion Medical. These supplemental therapies can help ensure you absorb the full benefits of the essential nutrients you need to function. Some IV infusions can also help you burn excess fat more efficiently in support of healthy weight loss.

The team continues to monitor your nutritional needs and provides resources that you can use to stay healthy in the long term.
