Nutrition

What is nutrition?

The food you eat provides your body with the nutrients and energy it needs for optimal health. Nutrition refers to the balance of foods your body needs to meet your personal nutrient and energy needs.

Dr. Moshkovich is a traditional Chinese medicine specialist and has a strong understanding of the role nutrition plays in your health.

A quote by a 14th-century physician describes the role of nutrition within traditional Chinese medicine: “Doctors first have to find the cause for an illness and determine which disharmony prevails. To balance this disharmony, the first and foremost is appropriate diet. It is until this measure bears no results that one should use medicine.”

What can I expect during nutrition therapy?

Your nutrition therapy at Nirvana Naturopathics is individualized to meet your specific needs. Before she develops your nutrition plan, Dr. Moshkovich conducts a comprehensive evaluation, which may include a review of your:

  • Medical and family history
  • Lifestyle
  • Weight history
  • Usual diet
  • Health goals

Based on the information gathered during your initial evaluation, Dr. Moshkovich creates an individualized nutrition plan that takes you and your needs into consideration.

Her plan includes a variety of healthy foods from all the food groups so you get a balanced intake for optimal health.

What can I expect from a weight-loss nutrition plan?

You’re not alone if you’re struggling with your weight. Dr. Moshkovich understands how hard it can be to lose weight and keep it off. To help you succeed, she creates a weight-loss plan that fits your lifestyle, weight goals, and food preferences.

When it comes to weight loss, cookie-cutter commercial diets aren’t the way to go. You need individualized care and attention that takes your needs into consideration.

As you go through your weight-loss journey, Dr. Moshkovich provides monitoring and encouragement and adjusts your plan as needed.

What if I need supplements?

Dr. Moshkovich has partnered with the Metagenics® line of nutritional supplements and can determine during your initial interview whether your health would benefit from additional supplementation. The Metagenics line offers supplements for all ages and health needs.
