Here at In-Line Wellness Center, we know that food is powerful medicine. This is why personalized nutritional counseling is a major part of how we help our patients become truly healthy, energetic and pain free. We have been helping people discover the power of great, individualized nutrition in Abington, Huntingdon Valley, Glenside, Horsham, Jenkinstown, Willow Grove and Philadelphia for more than 20 years—with incredible success!
Nutrition Plans Built for Your Optimal Health
In addition to maintaining a healthy spine, proper nutrition is one of the most important aspects of becoming healthy. The epidemics of obesity, chronic inflammation, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, chronic pain, back pain, fatigue, headaches and more that we struggle with can be (and often are) resolved when people commit to taking action by changing their diets. Unfortunately, it can be hard to change a lifetime of poor eating habits—but individualized nutritional counseling and support from our enthusiastic, knowledgeable team has been the key to success for hundreds of our patients!
Dr. Degon also knows that you are special—your nutrition needs may be quite different from any of our other patients, depending on what your health conditions and goals are; not to mention your individual physical makeup. You may have food sensitivities that affect what you should or should not be eating and how you absorb your nutrients. So the first step in our intensive nutritional counseling process involves a comprehensive medical history and exam and a discussion about your current nutritional habits. We want to find out what is currently working and pinpoint the things in your diet that are causing you problems.
Once we understand the scope of your nutrition needs, our nutritional counseling team will work personally with you to devise a plan to remove those highly-processed, nutritionally-poor foods that are getting in your way while replacing them with the nutrition powerhouses your body needs to heal itself. This will include everything from meal plans and a collection of easy and delicious recipes. We help you keep a food log that enables us to track your progress and evaluate potential problems that we can work on together. We can also offer you Metagenics supplements, meals, shakes and bars to assist you; but many of the foods you need are easy to find at your favorite grocery store. Our individualized nutritional counseling also includes shopping strategies that help you get the most out of your budget and avoid tricky food marketing pitfalls.
Our patients who have invested in our nutritional counseling programs rave about the personal attention and support they have received. They have also experienced welcome, long-term weight loss, more energy, less pain, clearer thinking and better health overall.
