What is Dietetics?

Dietetics applies an in depth understanding of the role of nutrition in a healthy lifestyle and the prevention and treatment of disease and illnesses.  Our dietitian can help with much more than just advice for obtaining and maintaining a healthy weight.

 

There are many other illnesses and conditions that can be treated and managed with the help of your dietitian. However, you don't need to be unwell to benefit from her advice and services. A nutritional plan from a dietary expert can be useful for preventing illness and promoting good health and fitness.

 

A Full Circle Wellness Dietitian can assist with advice and education on dietary choices specific to your health and lifestyle needs and goals. For more information about dietetics click on the links at the bottom of the page.
