NTO Wellness and Rehab offers Nutrition Counseling for clients that are recovering from illness, surgery or a ongoing chronic conditions that require adjustments to one’s nutrition and dietary habits.
Here at NTO Wellness and Rehab, Joanne, the Registered Dietitian (RD) works closely with the Physiotherapist for clients that are recovering from any illness/surgery. Evidence-based nutrition advice is complemented with proper exercise techniques for optimal recovery. In addition, the Registered Dietitian (RD) will collaborate with chiropodist to ensure diabetic patients are monitored closely to avoid complications such as amputations.
The Chiropodist may notify the RD to provide nutritional counseling and advice if a patient has trouble controlling blood sugars. Registered Dietitians are more a subset of conventional medicine as they always include evidenced-based advice into their practice as much as possible. They do not dismiss alternative therapies but would proceed with caution and give clients adequate information to help guide their decision on which route of therapy they prefer.
