Nutrition Counseling Q & A

What is nutrition counseling?

Nutrition counseling involves meeting with Dr. Halow to discuss your nutritional issues and health concerns and together coming up with a plan to help you reach your goals. Dr. Halow has decades of experience providing quality nutritional guidance with a personalized touch so you can lose weight, reduce the severity of a chronic disease like diabetes, and decrease digestive issues associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

These counseling sessions last between 30-60 minutes and can be repeated weekly or as often as needed to make progress toward improving your health through nutrition.
