Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)
Medical Nutrition Therapy approaches treatment of medical conditions and their symptoms through the use of individualized nutrition plans tailored to each person’s unique needs, medical history, and lifestyle. I have experience working with conditions such as Diabetes (both Type 1 and Type 2), heart disease, kidney disease, gastric sleeve surgery, IBS, Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, PCOS, and Huntington’s Chorea.
Weight management involves developing an individualized plan for the client to create and sustain a healthy lifestyle, rather than relying on fad diets or extreme measures that are generally ineffective and short lived. I will work with you to develop new habits and a realistic healthy lifestyle that will allow you to achieve your weight and wellness goals.
IBS and Digestive Disorder Management
I am trained in the use of the FODMAP diet for management of IBS. The FODMAP diet involves reducing or eliminating certain types of fermentable carbohydrates from your diet that may be the source of your digestive discomfort. The FODMAP diet is complex to implement at first, but with my help and expertise, we can greatly improve your digestive function.
I completed the Monash University ‘Low FODMAP Diet for IBS’ online training course in January 2023. I am listed in the Monash University directory of FODMAP trained dietitians. Look under United States of America, and then under Florida.
