What Is Clinical Nutrition?



"Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food." - Hippocrates


Clinical Nutrition uses the relationship between food and health to get to the root cause of acute illness and chronic health conditions. A three-day food journal, symptom analysis and health history are the tools of any nutritional practitioner, but only a Clinical Nutritionist is able to use a clinical exam to dig deeper and fully individualize client health plans. Our Encino nutritionist and patient work together to formulate a realistic, sustainable plan that will ultimately bring the patient to optimal health.


No matter your personal or professional wellness goals, if you are willing to take charge of your health, Clinical Nutrition is right for you. Our Encino clinical nutritionist will identify the underlying cause(s) of your health concerns and equip you with the knowledge and support to improve your health.
