NUTRITION
What we eat affects our energy level, our moods, and our overall health. Optimizing not only what we eat but how we eat can prevent chronic disease and lead to physical and emotional well-being.

In our clinical programs, information on proper nutrition is an integral part of our curriculum and one of the five main elements of mind/body medicine. We emphasize that a good diet not only helps people stay healthy, but also can improve and/or prevent the progression of some chronic medical problems.

Our nutritional guidelines are developed specifically for each patient population by our staff dietitian, who also presents and answers questions at one session of each program.

Private nutritional counseling consultations with a mind/body focus can be arranged with our staff dietitian.

Narmin Virani, RD, LDN is staff dietitian.
