Advanced Medical of Twin Cities offers local nutritional counseling, and we have Registered Dietitians on staff who serve the people of Golden Valley, Minnesota and many other nearby communities. Our staff works hard to address the many different kinds of needs presented by nutritional deficits. It may be tempting to think that nutritional counseling extends only to issues of obesity and perhaps with eating disorders. While those health issues certainly fall into our scope, nutritional counseling includes so much more.
Despite the extensive resources in the United States, nutrition still presents itself as a problem in many people’s lives. Some of this is a result of simply not having access to the food needed to nourish our bodies. There is also significant conflicting information in our society about diets, what foods are healthy (and not healthy), so it can be difficult to make decisions about the best diet for you and your family. When it comes to improving the nutritional health of individuals, Advanced Medical of Twin Cities is uniquely qualified.
