Medical Nutrition Therapy

Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is defined as a plan or set of steps, developed through a consultative process by a Registered Dietitian, which incorporates current professional knowledge and research, and clearly defines the level, content, and frequency of nutrition care that is appropriate for a disease or condition.  Medical nutrition therapy begins with the nutritional assessment of a client, followed by a medically prescribed nutrition therapy based on standard protocols.

Weight Loss

We used to believe that fat was an inert storehouse of calories. We have recently discovered that we were all wrong – fat is an active organ that produces its own hormones! Why is this important? How will this affect you as you attempt to lose weight? At Holistic Nutrition International LLC, we are keenly aware of the most advanced research and use everything we learn to help you to achieve your goals. Ever wonder why you try every diet and somehow you are still overweight? There is a lot more to weight loss than eating less and exercise more.

Marisa J. Kruss RD LD/N will work with you to develop an individualized science-based healing diet based on your health history, food choices/preferences, current conditions/symptoms and lifestyle that also addresses hormone imbalances as well as digestive and detoxification issues interfering with your weight loss.

Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes, instead of symptoms, for serious chronic disease.  Functional medicine is anchored by an examination of the core clinical imbalances that underlie various disease conditions.

It involves interpreting scientific lab test results of one or more of these vital body systems:

In addition to the interpretation of these lab tests, a review of your personal and family health history, current medications and professional-grade nutritional supplements as well as dietary habits/preferences and lifestyle factors will be utilized by Marisa J. Kruss RD LDN to create an individualized medical nutrition therapy program to help you regain a healthy balance of body and mind.

Gluten-free Living

The body reacts to foods to which it is allergic or intolerant by producing its own addictive narcotics, the opioid endorphins, which create a feeling of euphoria when that particular food is consumed. You begin to crave these foods when you eat them, because they induce pleasurable feelings!

Gluten intolerance is very common. The most common symptoms include weight gain, fatigue, digestive issues, and depression. A person with gluten intolerance cannot digest the protein portion of many commonly eaten grains, and this is what causes the unexplained digestive symptoms like bloating, diarrhea, constipation, gas, and cramping.

Anti Aging

Your body is your temple and what you give it nutritionally can have a vast impact on your health. As the body ages, many changes take place, and by consuming the proper vitamins and minerals, you can minimize the negative health effects that you experience as you grow older.  Unfortunately, as you age, your body's ability to properly process the vitamins that you eat decreases.  For that reason, it is important to increase the amounts of vitamins that you intake through an optimal diet and professional grade nutritional supplements.

Good nutrition is also vital for skin tone and muscle tone--every cell in your body needs essential nutrients to regenerate and repair. Eating the right things has a huge impact on the way your skin looks and how well it copes with the passing of time.  The goal of anti-aging nutrition therapy is not to merely prolong the total years of an individual's life, but to ensure that those years are enjoyed in a productive and vital fashion.
