Are you currently healthy and strong? Nutritional counseling today can help you develop and maintain healthy dietary habits to prevent chronic illness at any age.

What happens during a nutrition appointment?

Bastyr Center's nutrition teams use a highly personalized approach to diet and health. Your team will learn about your habits and health concerns. Then you’ll work together to set nutritional goals. Dietary recommendations will be tailored to your personal needs, but you can expect an emphasis on a whole-food diet.

Worried about navigating the healthy food maze? Your team can also provide personalized shopping guidance at local grocery and health food stores.

Do I need a referral?

No. While many local primary care physicians and other health providers refer patients to Bastyr Center nutrition services, you can make an appointment directly by calling 206.834.4100 or by completing our quick contact form.

Who is my team?

Your team will include 2-3 graduate nutrition students and a licensed Bastyr faculty member. All nutrition faculty members are registered dietitians (RDs) with advanced degrees in nutrition. Bastyr Center nutrition teams act as teachers and collaborators. They work within the context of your values and daily life patterns to help you achieve your goals for better living.
