Nutrition services offered in West Palm Beach, Delray Beach and Palm Beach Gardens, FL

What is nutrition?

Nutrition describes the essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients you need to be healthy. Your body uses the nutrients you take in from your diet to create the energy you need to function.

Poor nutrition is a contributing factor to many acute and chronic illnesses, including Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure (hypertension).

As a nutrition specialist, Dr. Feiwel provides comprehensive nutritional counseling services to improve your overall health and ensure your body has what it needs to thrive. She takes a personalized approach to create a nutritional diet plan that meets your needs and helps you achieve your wellness goals.

When should I consider nutrition counseling?

You should schedule a nutrition counseling consultation at the office of Nancy Feiwel, MD, if you’re looking to enhance your health and make lasting changes to your diet. Because conventional diets don’t work for everyone, Dr. Feiwel takes a personalized approach to creating a food plan that meets your individual health needs.

You can also benefit from the available nutrition services if you have underlying health conditions that cause:

  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Cramping
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Persistent fatigue

Instead of traditional medications, Dr. Feiwel uses food as medicine for a range of underlying medical conditions including inflammatory bowel diseases that affect gastrointestinal health.

What is involved in nutrition counseling?

During your initial nutrition counseling appointment, Dr. Feiwel spends time reviewing your medical history and discussing your lifestyle habits and diet.

Dr. Feiwel combines conventional medical training with laboratory-guided nutritional recommendations to improve your body’s health and function. She will have you complete a blood test to determine your food and chemical sensitivities. 

These highly sensitive tests identify foods that trigger an inflammatory response in your body. Persistent inflammation is often the contributing factor to gastrointestinal dysfunction, which often presents with symptoms like gas, bloating, and acid reflux. In addition, nutrient absorption is negatively affected when the gut is chronically inflamed.  

Many people experience improvements in their health that they couldn’t achieve with medications. Dr. Feiwel works closely with you to create a nutrient-rich diet plan you can incorporate into your daily life. Over the course of several months, Dr. Feiwel monitors your progress with nutritional counseling to ensure you’re living a healthy, active, pain-free life.
