You Are What You Eat

Medical Nutrition Therapy | Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center | Show Low AZWe pride ourselves on being the best in the business. We care about our community, our earth at large, and–to bring it close to home–our health. After all, there’s a reason the saying, “Health is Wealth” got so popular. Without our health, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the little things that give life meaning. That’s why we don’t take our health for granted, and we work hard to make sure everyone in our community gets the best care so they can go back to doing what they love most. No matter if you love gardening, traveling, or Netflixing with your furry friend, we want you to enjoy life uninterrupted.

Complete Care

One of the things we’re really excited about is giving you a full range of care. What does that mean? In this case, it means that we’re committed to full health, especially when it starts in your stomach. Now, before we go any further we want to clarify: we can snack with the best of them and we won’t say no to a little “treat yo’self” moment after a long week at work. But, just as with having a properly tailored-to-you exercise plan, eating the right food might help you recover from surgery, manage your diabetes better, or even lose that unhealthy extra weight. Gummy bears, we love you, but we’re going to have to see other people for a while.

How Does it Work?

First, our registered dietitian will go through your medical history and concerns with you. By using Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) our dietitian works with your physician to create a custom plan for you. But don’t expect a printout and a goodbye! One of the best parts of MNT is the care. Our dietitians will counsel you on how to change your habits for the better, so you can ask questions and give feedback on how things are going. By learning how to manage your food and retrain yourself, you’re set up for success way more than if you were just given a list of foods to avoid.

What is Medical Nutrition Therapy For?

Though we think it never hurts to try to eat better, our dietitians are specially trained to help you manage a few well-requested topics such as: Anemia, Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Cancer, Celiac Disease, Cholesterol, Diabetes, Diverticulitis, eating disorders, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Gestational Diabetes, Heart Disease, Hypertension, Hypoglycemia, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Irritable Bowel Disease, lactose intolerance, low sodium, Osteoporosis, Pediatrics, nutrition/diet related topics and weight loss. Why struggle with conflicting information online when you can talk to a trained dietitian with years of proven experience?
