Diet Clinic

Each of us are individuals, no two people are alike. We eat different foods, exercise at different rates and times, and consume different amounts of vitamins and minerals. We all require the same basic nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates, fats and vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Yet, it is determining the right amount of each substance for each individual that helps him / her fend off disease. Proper nutrition is an essential aspect of diagnosis and treatment. Nutrient related disorder can be cured once nutritional balance is achieved.

Disease can result when the balance among all of the foods and nutrients we take or avoid is disrupted. Health can be restored once we begin to take in the proper essential balance of foods and nutrients such as vitamins and minerals.

Every individual needs to plan a diet to suit their life style and society health conditions to lead a healthy life. If a diet plan has not been made so far please feel free to conduct our dieticians at the diet clinic. The dieticians in this clinic not only plan diet specific for your needs but will also educate on healthy eating habits and foods to be avoided. Counseling is also provided for patients wishing their children to be healthy and resistant to periodic infections. Information on safe dietary practice will also be provided.
