Helping older adults to treat their health conditions that would normally require a prescription for medication, but instead offer nutrition resources.

Welcome to A Prescription for Nutrition!

This website was created with one idea in mind; to have a one stop shop containing nutrition related content covering various health conditions that older adults are struggling with.

What if instead of being prescribed a medication, you were written a prescription for nutrition?

It is not always a bad thing to be given a medication to help resolve a health condition, but it’s no secret that medications are often overly prescribed to the public when the condition can be easily improved with a nutrition alternative.

A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist can do just that. They investigate what the root cause is and provide individualized nutrition related recommendations to help improve or resolve this issue.

Be sure to check out  our free nutrition resources, our online shop and our monthly blog posts on topics relevant to nutrition for older adults.

 Thank you for visiting!
