What is nutritional counseling?
Nutritional counseling is a somewhat newer field within the weight loss and health care community, targeting the treatment of imbalances through the use of therapeutic diets and supplements. The basic principles or belief behind nutritional counseling is that a lack of certain dietary nutrients contributes to mental and physical health disorders. Therefore, restoring balance via a medically approved diet will assist in the relief of mental and/or physical ailments.
