Benefits of nutrition counseling

by Jessica Oliver


Food is Medicine

Nutrition Counseling (often referred to as Medical Nutrition Therapy, or MNT) is an essential part of our comprehensive wellness program. Our Registered Dietitian will provide you with an in-depth look at your current nutrition and lifestyle habits, and devise a plan to make positive changes in your health and well-being. In many cases, food can help prevent, treat and even reverse illness to help transform your overall health. 

What is Nutrition Counseling?

Nutrition Counseling (MNT) is a therapeutic approach to treating ailments and provides an overall healthier lifestyle through proper nutrition. MNT is an essential component of a comprehensive health care program. People of all ages and lifestyles can benefit from Medical Nutrition Therapy. Pinnacle Medical Wellness caters specifically to each person’s needs.

Our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Sara Young received her Master’s Degrees in Nutrition and has completed nationally accredited dietetic internship programs. This knowledge and experience allow her to craft a special diet plan for each individual with step by step care to help all patients overcome challenges to meet their nutritional goals.

How can Nutrition Counseling benefit me?

Everyone can gain from the benefits that a proper diet and healthy lifestyle can offer! A healthful eating pattern can promote weight loss, decrease the prevalence of diabetes, increase sports performance, speed healing time from injury and so much more. We partner with you to make a diet plan that fits your lifestyle and food preferences, going the extra mile to help you lead a healthier, more fulfilling life. Nutrition Counseling can improve your health and quality of life, especially for individuals with:

  • Diabetes
  • Abnormal Blood Sugar
  • High Cholesterol
  • Eating Disorders
  • Metabolic Disorders

Many patients at Pinnacle find themselves needing Physical Therapy to rehabilitate an existing injury. By combining the professional expertise of our Physical Therapists with a proper diet plan from our Registered Dietitians, we can help speed your recovery time while decreasing inflammation and providing your body with all the nutrients it requires. A proper diet can aid in creating strong and healthy muscle tissue post injury and help to decrease the chances of being re-injured.

Is Nutrition Counseling covered by insurance?

We provide one-on-one sessions for all of your nutritional needs, and also accept most insurance plans.  In fact, some insurance plans will pay for multiple or unlimited visits with a Registered Dietitian with little or no out-of-pocket expense to you. Check with your insurance provider or our front office staff to review your benefits today! If nutritional therapy is not a benefit covered by your insurance, we offer competitive cash-pay rates and medical fitness programs with nutritional counseling at a discounted price.
