The focus of conventional health treatments is often on the disease, and not on the patient.  Have you heard of integrative medicine?  It is a great concept; designed to follow a whole-person approach that treats the person and not just the disease.  At Nutrily we follow integrative nutrition and we believe that nutritional caretakers should not just consider the diagnosis but also decode the hidden messages expressed by the patient.  So the nutrition services provided by Nutrily consider the entirety of the human being since the human body is unique with structured organs and systems that are interdependent.

Nutrily was created after Livia noted that, with the epidemic of lifestyle-related chronic illnesses, the healthcare system lacked patient-centered and preventive approaches, specific nutrition recommendations, and whole-food treatment strategies.  Nutrily has the goal to fulfill this gap.  Livia believes that listening to client stories and looking at the interactions among genetics, the microbiota, the presence of food sensitivities, environmental exposures, cultural implications, and lifestyle factors can positively influence long-term health.

Consult a qualified licensed registered dietitian in Illinois before you start any nutrition program.

In Illinois, only a licensed dietitian nutritionist can provide therapeutic nutrition care.  The goal of licensure is to ensure that licensees have the minimal degree of competency necessary to ensure that the public's health, safety, and welfare are reasonably well protected.

How is Nutrily any different from traditional nutrition treatments in the U.S.?
