Practice Philosophies

The HAES® approach is a holistic approach that focuses on promoting health and well-being for people of all sizes, rather than placing emphasis on weight loss as a marker of health. We recognize that weight is not a reliable indicator of health, and that weight-based discrimination and weight loss efforts can be harmful.

We are also committed to providing culturally inclusive care. We understand that cultural factors can influence health behaviors and outcomes, and that it is important for healthcare providers to understand and respect cultural differences in order to provide the best possible care for clients.

We strive to provide individualized care to each of our clients, taking into account their unique needs, preferences, and circumstances. This approach recognizes that one-size-fits-all solutions are not effective for everyone.

Our interventions are realistic and evidence-based, focusing on strategies that are achievable and sustainable for our patients. We are committed to helping our clients  achieve their Wellness goals and improve their overall health and well-being.

Thank you for considering Mackenthun’s Dietitian Services for your wellness health. We look forward to working with you.
