I am Here to Help!
Together we will establish a few goals that we can then tailor
a nutrition plan to help you achieve your desired results.
Heart Disease affects men, women as well as children, and can present itself in many forms including hypertension, high cholesterol, heart failure, and congenital heart defects, among other conditions. Seeing your doctor on a regular basis, monitoring blood pressure and cholesterol, taking any medications as prescribed along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, may help lower your risks and better manage your condition.
After assessing your nutrition status and needs, we will discuss some ways to lower sodium intake, reduce unhealthy fats and cholesterol, and increase intake of heart-healthy foods on a daily basis. Together we will establish a few goals that we can then tailor a nutrition plan to help you achieve your desired results. A follow-up session is typically scheduled within a few weeks of the initial plan and additional visits can be scheduled to help keep you motivated and on track.
If you are recently diagnosed with heart disease or desire ongoing education, we recommend a nutrition package that includes touring your local grocery store together to read labels, compare options, and make smarter choices. An in-home pantry review, cooking demonstration, meal plan, and recipe modifications can be included to further assist in achieving your goals. We can even share helpful tips for dining out at your favorite restaurants.
