Nutritional Counseling at Align Right Chiropractic
Janel’s expertise could be part of your overall chiropractic care at Align Right. Nutritional counseling can help you make healthy choices when it comes to eating as well as any nutritional supplements you may desire. We offer this service as part of our goal to help restore your optimal health.
A nutrition plan will be tailor made for you. Your dietician in Richardson will conduct a thorough evaluation, asking important questions about your medical history, health habits and your goals. Then, with your input, she will create a nutrition plan that considers your food preferences, budget parameters, and the convenience of purchasing nutritional products.
Nutrition counseling is not a one-and-done program. Rather, the process can go on for years in order to help you achieve your long-term goals.
