Nutritional Therapy

Nutrition is an important part of your health and well-being. There are several medical conditions and diseases which can be improved with a healthy diet. A Registered Dietitian is trained as a food and nutrition expert to provide medical nutrition therapy to help you improve your health while working with your Medical Practitioner to meet your individual needs. Myrtue Medical Center is lucky enough to have an in-house licensed dietitian who is available to meet with patients.
