What We Do
Nutrition to You brings the expertise of specialized, multilingual Registered Dietitians to your home! Yes, we make house calls! We provide clients across the Greater Vancouver area with current, evidence-based preventative nutrition and weight management support, as well as normal and advance clinical nutrition care for those with highly specialized needs.
Our preventative nutrition and weight management clients come from all walks of life; including busy professionals, college & university students, stay-at-home-moms, office workers & factory workers and others. What they have in common is a desire to make some nutrition and lifestyle changes, and the recognition that to be successful, they need a knowledgeable and experienced Dietitian to provide them with the tools.
Our normal nutrition clinical clients range from those with high blood pressure (hypertension), elevated cholesterol or high blood glucose (insulin resistance), to those with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes or Irritable Bowel Disorder (IBS). They know they need to make some changes, and want a Dietitian with the clinical experience to guide them.
We will also provide advanced clinical care to those with Inflammatory Bowel Disorder such as Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis, individuals who have just been released from hospital after having had GI surgery including small intestine resection, and liver- pancreas- or gallbladder surgery and provide Dietitian support for those with degenerative autoimmune diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Huntington’s and ALS, and individuals with impaired cognition, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease Dementia. One of our Dietitians even has the specialized certifications required to oversee the nutrition of those on various types of feeding tubes (enteral nutrition),
