Nutrition Counseling at the The Akasha Center for Integrative Medicine

Integrative nutrition is a integrative approach to health and wellness with the goal of empowering individuals with strategies that nourish the whole person. Every day we are posed with the question, “how do we nourish ourselves?” Learning how to eat to nourish is a fundamental component of discovering healthy living and supporting our unique wellness goals. Therefore, the nutrition department at The Akasha Center for Integrative Medicine takes a whole foods based approach to nutrition and understands that eating to nourish is a lifestyle that supports alignment of the mind and body and rediscovering balance from within.

Health Treatments

Nourishment is more than a collection of nutrients; it is a combination of what we put into our bodies and how we perceive it. 

Compromised physiological and psychological functioning is frequently related to imbalances in our internal environments. Although treating these imbalances as individual parts may offer temporary relief, as Aristotle has taught us, the “the whole is more than the sum of its parts.” 

Nutrition Counseling at the The Akasha Center for Integrative Medicine includes exploration of how our connections to our food including our thoughts, emotions, belief systems, environments, backgrounds and behaviors impact our metabolic health and nutrition status.
