Our Approach

Our Therapeutic Approach

At Eat Well Nova Scotia, our approach to our services and programs are client-focused, easy to follow, educational and life changing! Due to our years of experience and research as Medical Nutrition Therapists, we have been able to format our programs and consultations to meet the specific needs of our clients.

We are also firm believers that most chronic illnesses begin at the level of the gut and are linked to systemic and chronic inflammation and that with proper education and motivation, anyone can take health into their own hands by focusing on nutrition and lifestyle choices that promote digestive health & overall wellness.

FRIENDLY. POSITIVE. PRO-ACTIVE.
