NUTRITIONAL THERAPY
(Healthy Food Choices)

For many of our patients, chronic pain is directly impacted by their diet. These individuals are referred to the MVPC’s Registered Dietitian for individual support based on their pain etiology, goals, and ability/willingness to implement these therapeutic changes on their own.  All graduates of the Phase I, 10-Week core program are eligible to participate in the Phase II program, Eating for Life.  This 8-week program includes 2.5 hours a week of experiential learning, individual nutrition therapy, and yoga.  Patients are taught to properly prepare nutrient-dense whole food (e.g., food that has not been “diluted” by modified refined starches, sugars,or solid fats). Proper nutrition is key to reducing chronic pain, healing, and mental health functioning.

All nutrition classes and counseling are provided by MVPC’s Licensed Registered Dietitian.
