Medical Nutrition Therapy


Medical Nutrition Therapy

It's hard to ignore the link between nutrition and health. Majority of people regularly consume foods like pizza, burgers, fries and ice cream. These foods are high in unhealthy fats, sugar and salt and low in fiber, vitamins and minerals. While there's no denying the fact that these foods taste good, when you eat them, your body must pay the price. In fact, if these foods make up the majority of your diet, you might find yourself in need of a dietary intervention. Medical nutrition therapy, or MNT, is the proper name of this type of intervention.

Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is a therapeutic approach to treating medical conditions and their associated symptoms via the use of a specifically tailored diet devised and monitored by professional nutritionist. Because a number of medical conditions are caused by or made worse by eating an unhealthy diet, MNT has become a valuable tool in the management of many common health problems.
