Even though good nutrition is an important part of living a healthy life, most people do not have diets that provide them with proper or complete nutrition.
At Texas Chiropractic College’s Moody Health Center, we stress the importance of doing everything possible to live healthy lives through the nutritional consultation we provide. Our doctors and student interns can offer guidance on a wide variety of nutritional vitamins and supplements. While many of the supplements we prescribe may be for nutritional benefits, many others are given as an adjunct to treatment to enhance healing.
TCC interns at Moody Health Center complete an extensive course in nutrition and can provide nutritional consultation, counseling and treatment, when needed.
