Why See a Luminis Health Registered Dietician?
Nutrition counseling can help prevent and control various health risks for diabetes, heart disease, obesity and cancer. It can also help you deal with and overcome eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia. Or if you’re simply looking to increase your nutrition and achieve optimal health, our dietitians can give you the tools you need to make those lifestyle changes.
Nutrition counseling is available for a variety of health needs.
