Treating disease with diet

Medical Nutrition Therapy

Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is an approach to treating disease with an individually tailored diet which may be created and/or implemented by a registered dietitian nutritionist. Most health professionals would agree that nutrition support is one of, if not the most important initial responses to a chronic disease diagnosis.


Essentially this means that if you are dealing with a chronic condition, nutrition may serve as a key component in supporting the body’s own ability to heal, even if medication is currently helping to manage that condition. Additionally, long-term prescription medication use can contribute to vitamin and mineral deficiencies, which are essential to identify and correct in managing chronic disease.

And one of the most powerful resources we have to fight disease is food!
