Based in the upscale Los Angeles suburb of Calabasas, California, Healthy Roots Nutrition is a nutritional counseling organization and the private practice of nutritionist Nilli Grutman. It provides flexible care plans for clients struggling with food-related behavioral health issues including eating disorders, food addiction and some co-occurring disorders. All treatment plans are individualized and can be made to fit any number of schedules.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, all clients go through an initial intake and assessment process to help the staff determine their needs. While inpatient detox and stabilization services are not available, the organization does offer a four-week food and nutrition detox where clients are put on a diet plan and are taught basic nutritional principles.
Though each program may differ, each requires a minimum three scheduled sessions. The first is an initial assessment to determine the client’s lifestyle, the second focuses on developing an actual nutrition and diet plan and the third is a follow-up to determine what was successful and what might need adjustment. Rather than offering psychotherapy, the organization traces mental and behavioral health back to nutrition and overall health. In that sense, dual diagnosis support is available to the degree that symptoms can be alleviated by diet and exercise—still, those in need of more intensive psychiatric support may need to seek additional help elsewhere. Similarly, 12-step participation is not required, although it may be encouraged in some cases.
The staff at Healthy Roots Nutrition consists primarily of Grutman, along with additional support staff.
Additional in-person and email follow up sessions are available at each client’s discretion as well. As an overall holistic organization, the staff at Healthy Roots Nutrition can also make recommendations about additional lifestyle changes to supplement all the nutritional fixes by emphasizing mindfulness and exercise.
The facility also posts delicious and nutritional recipes on its website on a rotating basis. These recipes are also all compiled in a recipe book which is available to those who complete the food detox program. Finally, the website also runs its own blog which posts information about diet and the specifics of various nutritional choices.
Overall, Healthy Roots Nutrition lives up to its name by providing nutritional counseling and holistic health care plans for a variety of needs. All treatment plans are individualized and suited to each client’s needs, with support for a wide range of behavioral health issues. While those seeking treatment for more severe addiction and mental health issues may need to seek additional support, Healthy Roots Nutrition is a strong resource for those looking for a nutrition-based treatment option.
