Northwestern's Comprehensive Care Model - Nutrition

For patients who require nutritional support and guidance, our Center's physicians make referrals to the Center for Integrative Medicine (CIM) of Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group. The CIM Functional Nutrition and Naturopathic Practitioner helps to design a personalized nutrition program that takes into account an analysis of the patient's food intake, body, health, and medications. Special care is taken so that up-to-date and evidence-based scientific recommendations coordinate with patients' prescription medications. CIM counselors and the PD Center team maintain communication about patients' treatment and progress.

Our Center also refers to the Center for Integrative Medicine for other complementary therapies, such as Massage, Acupuncture, and Behavioral Medicine.
