Helping you look & Feel 10 years younger
Individual Counseling Services
Ruth (Ruth Clark, RD, MPH) believes that because every person is unique they require different approaches to help create positive changes. Starting with a comprehensive, holistic assessment and evaluation of lifestyle, eating habits, symptoms and hormones, she can help you discover and correct the eating patterns that may be leading to a wide array of problems such as low energy, weight gain, ill health, dependence on too many medications, poor digestion, high cholesterol, mood issues and more.
Here are some of the issues we most frequently see and address in nutrition consults:
Weight Loss Resistance
Diabetes Treatment and Prevention
A diagnosis of diabetes at seventy-seven got my attention. The “I must think about losing weight sometime,” became NOW. While I ate a healthy diet and was fairly knowledgeable about nutrition, Ruth was a great ‘kick-starter,’ explaining about portions, when I might snack, and general wisdom for weight loss. Some six months later, 25 pounds lighter, and NO Diabetes! Thanks bunches.

What is a Registered Dietitian?
Registered Dietitians or Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDs or RDNs) have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree with an accredited nutrition cirriculum. They complete required coursework approved by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). Then complete an accredited, supervised practice program at a health-care facility, community agency, foodservice corporation or complete a Master of Science in Nutrition. After completion they must pass a rigorous national examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration to become a RD. Continuing professional education is required to maintain registration.
