Therapeutic nutrition is a way for people to use personalized evidence-based eating strategies to reduce or reverse specific chronic conditions or symptoms of a chronic disease.
But, maybe you're wondering, what does that mean?
Personalized therapeutic nutrition:
Includes a variety of eating patterns that are individualized based on the condition being treated
Focuses on patient safety by preparing health practitioners to recognize and manage risks associated with potential overmedication
Should be offered as a first line of treatment to any interested patient
Considers a person’s needs, preferences, motivation and degree of insulin resistance
Provides an alternative to pharmaceutical management of metabolically based chronic diseases
