What is Integrative Nutrition?

At Duke Integrative Medicine, we offer integrative nutrition services that address your health concerns by taking a “food as medicine” approach. Our nutritionists draw on their extensive experience and education to identify how a customized nutrition plan can improve your well-being.

A consultation with a nutritionist begins with your questions, concerns, and goals. The nutritionist will assess your symptoms, laboratory tests, food preferences, and health history and begin to build a personalized nutrition plan. Over the course of several appointments, your nutritionist will help identify interconnections between food, movement, rest, and stress in your life. Your recommendations may include changes in food selection and/or preparation, strategies for developing menus, nutritional supplementation or techniques to support awareness of your eating habits. Together, we will work toward initiating positive change in your health and lifestyle.

At Duke Integrative Medicine, our integrative nutrition services are used to treat a specific health condition, manage weight healthfully, or to attain optimal vitality through a wholesome diet. Our nutritionists understand that getting on the right path toward your health goals is a process that requires support, adjustment, and taking small steps to make lasting and positive changes.

Healthy Weight Management

Our nutritionists understand that achieving and maintaining weight loss can be a confusing and difficult process. At Duke Integrative Medicine, we help you grasp the factors that have made it difficult for you to achieve your healthy weight. Our weight management services offer much more than just a list of healthy foods. While we will address what you eat, we also explore how and why you eat. This mindful approach to food consumption can help identify behavior and stress patterns that may hinder weight loss. Our nutritionists will help you develop a comprehensive, personalized plan designed to bring lasting change and results.
