Nutritional Services Offered
Comprehensive Nutritional Assessment
Nutrition influences numerous aspects of our health. That’s why we use a comprehensive nutritional assessment to help you better understand what’s causing your problems and how to heal them.
Once a comprehensive nutritional assessment is completed, we offer customized nutrition recommendations. These are designed specifically for each patient in response to the nutrients their body needs.
Nutraceutical supplements are products made from foods. These supplements are designed to provide additional health and nutritional benefits. We provide individual recommendations and help our patients find the supplements that work best for them.
Our one-on-one dietary counseling and lifestyle education is designed to offer our patients professional help in devising the lifestyle and diet plan that works best to meet their specific needs.
We have partnered with a holistic nutritionist, Annie McRae, to give our patients the best possible nutritional counseling.
Annie is an experienced nutritionist having graduated from The Institute of Optimum Nutrition (ION) London, UK in 1998 with credit. Her depth of knowledge expands across many health conditions. Her specialty is IBS and Digestive Disorders. Annie was a partner in The IBS & Gut Disorder Centre in London, which was awarded runner up in CAM Awards UK in 2009 for outstanding practice. She now brings her expertise to Los Angeles.
The body wants to heal itself so Annie gives advice on foods that help restore your deficiencies and imbalances. She also tells you what foods to avoid or reduce that are exacerbating your condition.
Annie learned cooking from an early age using fresh organic vegetables and unadulterated foods from the farm where she was brought up. She explains to her clients how to prepare nourishing dishes without spending hours in the kitchen.
Her passion is to help people to be their best with a strong foundation of healthy eating and a positive lifestyle. She sees her role as an educator, motivator, and encourager as she listens to her clients and imparts their personal nutritional strategy for them.
