Nutrition & Diet
We have developed a comprehensive approach to the multitude of dietary nuances related to Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, microscopic colitis, food intolerance and allergies. We can also help with issues surrounding safely gaining weight and maximizing your nutritional intake for optimum health.
Our approach is based on the premise that good nutrition is for everyone. Food is a great source of enjoyment, and we maintain that this pleasure can prevail even for those faced with special dietary needs. Food is also a great source of health, and learning what to include can be as important as knowing what to avoid.
Our registered dietitians provide current medical and scientific nutrition information as well as psychological strategies to ensure long-lasting changes in eating habits.
Our expertise goes far beyond the realm of food composition and the basic “do’s” and “don’ts.” We incorporate state-of-the-art behavior modification and cognitive attitude change strategies into our tailor-made programs to help you stick to your dietary plan. The individual attention each patient receives helps to ensure that the principles of nutritional therapy are adapted into his or her lifestyle. Whether this is your first or fiftieth attempt to change your diet and get well, the Crohn’s and Colitis Center Nutritional Services offer you the best chance for success.
