Integrative Geriatric Nutrition
A Practitioner’s Guide to Dietary Approaches for Older Adults
Julie Wendt, Colleen Considine, Mikhail Kogan
This book provides a review of therapeutic foods and diets for aging patients. Drawing from extensive clinical experience in large integrative medical practices, it offers a unique and thorough perspective on the challenges that older adults present and the most effective ways to integrate nutritional approaches into their care. Nutritional therapies included here improve patient quality of life via noninvasive, lower cost care and reduce systemic dependencies in a growing demographic. This book looks at condition-specific interventions to equip the practitioner with a thorough understanding of when to call upon specific diet interventions. The text revolves around easily translated clinical tools such as tables, graphs, case studies, and examples to assure multicultural adaptation of evidence-based approaches for conventional use in clinical settings.
Integrative Geriatric Nutrition: A Practitioner’s Guide to Dietary Approaches for Older Adults is a concise yet thorough resource for all physicians and medical students who treat aging patients, including geriatricians, nutritionists, family physicians, gastroenterologists, nursing home administrators, nurses, other healthcare providers, geriatric advocates, and inquisitive consumers.
