What Is Nutritional Counseling?
Nutritional counseling is an area of medicine that concentrates on giving patients the proper counseling on understanding foods and how they prevent illness and disease. Within this area, patients may also receive counseling in losing weight and establishing a healthy lifestyle.
How Is Nutritional Counseling Used in Functional Medicine?
Nutritional counseling is one of the foundations of functional medicine, since consistent inadequate dieting is often observed as a contributing factor to the development of numerous chronic diseases. One of the most essential portions of our treatment plans for patients implementing functional medicine is initiating a proper diet that drastically reduces ingesting any food that may be cause for concern and incorporates healthier options along with nutritional supplements to assist the body in healing and returning to optimal health.
Who May Benefit from Nutritional Counseling?
Nutritional counseling may benefit individuals:
- Attempting a treatment plan to heal from a poor diet
- Living with a chronic condition (i.e. diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, etc.)
- Pursuing an overall healthier lifestyle
- Seeking a way to improve their diet
What Is the Cost of Nutritional Counseling at the Falcone Center?
At the Falcone Center, the cost for treating patients in Philadelphia, PA, Maple Shade, NJ, and the surrounding area is based on the appointment. Deposit is due when scheduling initial appointment.
It is important to note that the Falcone Center does not accept insurance as it is considered an “out-of-network provider” by most major insurance plans. While we cannot file insurance claims on our patients’ behalf, we can easily provide them with receipts and the necessary paperwork to file for reimbursement. We suggest that our patients determine whether their plans cover functional medicine prior to making an appointment.
