Wow great information. I'm still in college and was wanted to maybe eventually become a dietician and/or natural foods chef, where did you get your training? And also which degree do you think is the most beneficial, I've heard of Nutritional Educator and Nutritional Consultant, these titles just seem foreign to me, which one is the best to get? Thank you! And thanks for all your tips!
I have a degree in clinical nutrition from UC Davis and then did a year long internship in order to be eligible to take my registration exam to become a registered dietitian. You can get a certificate in nutrition from various programs, but this is a loose term because anyone (depending on what states you live in) can call themselves a nutritionist. You should decide exactly what you want to do and then look into the school options to see which one fits you best. Good luck!
If you think you are anemic, you need to have your blood drawn to check. Iron supplements can be constipating and you wouldn't want to take iron anyway without being sure you're anemic. Meanwhile, make sure you eat food high in iron and high in vitamin c (the vitamin c helps you absorb iron) with each meal, don't drink coffee or tea with meals (they can bind iron so you don't absorb much). If it turns out that you do need supplements, you may or may not have negative side effects. I have clients that tolerate them fine. Take care --Sara
I am in search of a nutritionist that specializes in food allergies. Would you be so kind as to send me some information, particularly your location, price, and what insurance you accept. Do you have a website? Thank you.
Hello, I am not a dietition but a licensed acupuncturist and esthetician who works with cancer patients. i was wondering if you had an opinion on PCRMs nutrition program food for life? I was thinking about going through it and I believe a diet with a lot of fruits and vegetables is great for everybody but I didn't know how good of a program it is?
