Our Range of Nutritional Services

There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to nutrition. That is why we offer so many different ways to personalize your nutrition plan with us. Below, you can read about a selection of the nutrition-related services we offer.

Woman eating cereal Holistic Clinical Nutrition

Holistic Clinical nutrition is the study of the relationship between food and the well-being of the body and mind. Holistic nutrition recognizes the physical, chemical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and environmental factors that impact the expression of health and dis-ease. This discipline applies principles derived from current biochemical and physiological scientific knowledge for the purpose of promoting optimal health while recognizing biochemical individuality—a concept which suggests that no two individuals have the same nutrient requirements and that our needs will change throughout our lifetimes. Holistic Nutrition considers the whole person, their lifestyle, culture, history, and environment.

Food can be used to help heal the body at the source of the problem and prevent certain chronic diseases. Our team offers ongoing support in the development and continued success of your individualized food plan and lifestyle changes. Nine out of ten of the leading causes of death in the U.S. can be prevented with specific nutrition and lifestyle changes. We work with you to help you realize your health & well-being goals.

Holistic & Whole Foods Weight Loss Programs

Our nutrition team believes weight loss is a healing process in which your body strives toward optimal health to effectively gain health and vitality and naturally lose weight and keep it off for a lifetime. This methodology is the backbone for each of our individual and group weight loss programs. Everyone knows that caloric restricted diets and fad diets work for about 15 minutes. Yes, you may lose weight, but you will regain all of it back and then some. Severe Calorie restricted diets never work long term. Learning to prepare and eat foods that are nutrient packed, delicious, and easy to make allow you to embrace healthy eating for a lifetime of happiness and success. One meal at a time, one day at a time, you can master optimal health and weight management.

Eating Disorder Recovery

Our team of clinicians offers comprehensive treatment programs for individuals and families struggling to overcome eating disorders. Our multifaceted approach includes individual, group, and family therapy, as well as state-of-the-art nutrition and nutraceutical intervention.

In our counseling, therapy, groups, workshops, and unique coaching programs, we offer an alternative to chronic dieting and compulsive eating along with customized recovery programs for overcoming obesity, food, weight, and dieting obsessions.

Based on Deborah Coulston’s years of experience and expertise in working with individuals struggling with serious food addictions, compulsive eating, obesity and the symptoms of a lifetime of eating the Standard American Diet (SAD), our Sugar Detox Program was created to help you restore your body to a natural state of radiant health and well-being.

21-Day Purification Cleanse Program

Purification, also known as detoxification, can help you remove natural toxins from your body and help maintain a healthy weight. We are exposed to external toxins every day, including pollutants, pesticides and chemicals. Internally, our bodies produce waste byproducts as a result of normal metabolic function. Although your body is designed to rid itself of these toxins naturally, it can become overburdened.

Purification offers your body additional support to expel natural toxins and minimize your weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality.

Our 21-Day Standard Process Whole Foods Purification Cleanse Program offers great results to create permanent life-long changes. It is not a diet but is designed to help you live a healthier life by purifying, nourishing, and maintaining a healthy body and weight. The purification program emphasizes whole food supplements and whole foods, particularly fruits and vegetables while limiting high-calorie, refined foods, and saturated fats.

Nourishing yourself with nutrient-rich foods will provide the complex combination of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants needed to protect the body and promote optimal health. We offer a free workshop and group support to get you started on your new way of life.
