Nutrition Therapy

One-on-one sessions with a dedicated registered dietitian to help you achieve your health goals

Health professionals agree that nutrition services with a Registered Dietitian are one of the first treatments that individuals should receive to improve conditions such as diabetes, obesity, gastrointestinal conditions, inflammatory conditions, heart disease and hypertension.

After working with an LWell dietitian, our clients commonly experience…

reduced pain and symptoms

reduction of medications

improvement in physician-ordered labs

healthy weight

improved sleep

more clear mind

I have been a part of “diet culture” for several years of my life. I think the first time I went on a diet was age 11. To say my relationship with food was unhealthy would be an understatement.

In the short time that I have been working with LWell, my outlook has completely changed. At our very first meeting, Rosemary told me that I had all of the pieces and we just needed to figure out how to put them together. She could not have been more correct!

Cultivating a positive and peaceful relationship with food is exactly what I needed to do.

I have never felt more satisfied AND seen the scale go down consistently week after week. I have lost about 5% of my body weight, dropped from pre-diabetic to normal glucose levels, and I feel so good. Working with a dietitian has given me the confidence and ability to make healthy choices while removing the guilt that I associated with food. I am so incredibly thankful that for LWell and Rosemary – they have been an absolute blessing and I feel confident in my choices going forward to create a long, healthy future. Thank you so so so much for all of your enthusiasm and encouragement! Brittany Wood

FAQs about working with our dietitians

What is a Registered Dietitian?

Registered Dietitian and Registered Dietitian-Nutritionists (RD or RDN) are equal credentials. Registered Dietitians are able to treat a wide variety of illnesses with hundreds of nutrition therapies as regulated by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. RD’s and RDN’s work to treat and prevent diagnosed conditions by providing medical nutrition therapy. The RD/RDN often acts as part of a medical team, in various practice settings, such as hospitals, physician offices, private practice and other health care facilities. The work of the RD/RDN is clinically recognized as effective in preventing, treating and managing many conditions.

People who refer to themselves as nutritionists or registered dietitians should have also met criteria based on national standards of education, experience and of practice as set by the Commission on Dietetic Registration, but many erroneously misrepresent themselves as nutritionists. Make sure you are working with a registered dietitian or registered dietitian nutritionist.
