Nutritional Support

Holistic Nutritionists believe that food is about more than just satisfying our biological needs. Food can also energize, calm and heal us. Holistic Nutrition emphasizes the physical, environmental, and emotional components of a client's life to promote health and well-being.

The holistic nutrition services at Pinewood can address a variety of conditions including weight loss, allergies, diabetes, high cholesterol, digestive sensitivities, inflammation, aging and more. To create individualized plans, Pinewood's Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Karen Gilman works with clients to understand their medical and lifestyle history.
