Why is Nutrition Important to my Health?

Supplementing with key nutrients that are missing from the average diet and difficult to obtain from the most conscientious diet is important to optimizing health. Focusing on “food as medicine,” Pauline Weissman will address any of your health concerns from a dietary prospective in addition to providing very specific nutritional advice.
