The Nutrition approach at Tournesol
Nutrition is a vital component in healing and achieving general well-being and eating the right food is one of the simplest ways we can take control of our health. There is no one-size-fits-all nutrition regimen and eating a whole foods diet is the easiest and most effective way for the body to heal.
Many of our chronic illnesses, emotional imbalances and preventative measures can be improved by making better lifestyle choices such as what we eat. With so much information available through competing media sources and differing opinions from health care providers, how can we make the best and most informed decisions for ourselves?
At Tournesol, nutrition guidance is based upon a holistic approach that addresses the body systems as a whole to provide individualized care. Our nutrition sessions assess your current health situation and goals and teach how diet contributes to the healing of body, mind, and spirit. Good nutrition in a well balanced diet combined with regular physical activity is a cornerstone for good health. Poor nutrition can lead to reduced immunity, increased susceptibility to disease, impaired physical and mental development, and reduced productivity.
What are the nutrition sessions good for?
Nutrition can help prevent or cure unnecessary weight gain, reduce anxiety and stress, prevent future health problems and avoid prolonged sickness with colds and the flu. If you are looking to lose weight, reduce your stress, or just want to diet, a customized nutrition program will be a great place to start. Nutrition sessions can help with the following:
• Achieving Optimal Weight
• Stopping Cravings
• Relieving Symptoms
• Achieving Optimal Well-being
• Breaking Yo-Yo Dieting Patterns
• Learning Meal Plans and Detox Methods
What should I expect in my nutrition session?
You can expect to complete a health history and information form and answer questions about your health and nutrition goals. You will receive a custom plan for nutrition and you may review holistic stress reduction and healthy lifestyle techniques to help make reaching your goals easier. Sessions will last 120, 90 or 60 minutes depending upon your individual needs.

Tournesol Wellness clients say about Nutrition sessions
“I have been extremely fortunate to have Diane Giammarino as my main nutritional advisor for the past nine months. I had a very serious diagnosis and Diane was able to bring her extensive and deep knowledge of medicine, food and healing along with her intuitive sense of what would work for me as an individual during any given week to help guide me to turn my medical situation around. Diane is a true healer. She is kind, generous, patient and wise. Anyone would be lucky indeed to have Diane thinking about them and their nutritional needs."
- Corinne Goodman, Brooklyn, NY
"I have been Diane's client for over one year. I have been dealing with different health issues that Diane has been instrumental in helping me overcome. Diane has shown to be professional, hard working, caring and extremely knowledgeable. Working as a health care practitioner myself, I believe Diane would be a great asset to your company."
