Kinds of Nutrition Therapies
The basic purpose of this therapy is to implement different techniques to provide sufficient nutrients to the patients. In order to achieve this goal, a nutrition therapist utilizes the following methods that are viable as well as effective.
Nutritional Support Therapy
This is the primary method of providing essential nutrient to the patient. It further divides into two methods including enteral nutrition or parenteral nutrition. Both of these methods help to prevent malnutrition and severity of physical condition. This therapy proves to be effective, irrespective of patient’s age.
During this type of nutrition therapy, we utilize some essential components of medical treatment. These elements are oral, parenteral, and enteral nutrition, which helps to restore and maintain optimal nutrition status of a patient.
This is an effective way of providing nutrition to people, who are unable to eat food on their own. This method of nutrition therapy is also known as “tube feeding.” Enteral nutrition offers all the essential nutrients in a perfect blend. The consistency of this type of diet is relatively thicker than parenteral nutrition. Nutrition therapists offer this liquid diet by dropping a tube into the stomach.
When it is not possible to provide nutrition through the enteral process, a mixture of special liquids is directly injected into the bloodstream. Nutrition therapists insert an intravenous tube into a vein. In this way, the patient can receive all the essential proteins, fats, sugar, fat, mineral and vitamins.
This type of therapy requires the utmost care and attention. Our qualified and experienced nutrition therapist offer these therapies while following strict medical guidelines. Hence, you can rely on our abilities an get these services without any hesitation.
