Ozark Nutrition Therapy


Many people want to make healthier food choices, whether it is to prevent health issues or to control health issues, but they may not know where to start.

There is a lot of misinformation about how and what to eat if you have diabetes, heart disease or you are just trying to lose a little weight. Individualized nutrition counseling with a registered dietitian is an effective way to obtain dietary advice and suggestions based on your individual needs. Individualized counseling takes your medical history, food preferences and lifestyle into account and then provides you with recommendations tailored to your personal health concerns.

Shanna Carr, RD, LD is a registered and licensed dietitian with Ozark Therapy located in the Coppertop facility at Physician’s Park. She treats clients with

  • Diabetes
  • High Cholesterol
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Gastrointestinal Issues
  • Or those just wanting to lose weight and have more energy and feel better.

She enjoys working one-on-one with clients to help them control blood sugars or cholesterol/triglyceride levels, blood pressure and meet their weight loss goals. Some even decrease the number of medications needed to control certain health issues.

Weight loss is a big concern for many and can be a great tool to help prevent diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Prevention is much more cost effective than treatment. Weight loss can also help you feel better, sleep better, have more energy and improve self- esteem. Shanna has a weight loss program available that focuses on healthier eating, behavior modification and exercise. This program consists of an in-depth assessment and individualized plan for the client. Follow-ups are provided for accountability, further education on ways to change eating and exercise behaviors and also to provide motivation. This program not only focuses on what you eat, but more importantly tries to change why you eat (stress, boredom=emotional eating) which is usually an issue.

If you are interested in more information about how nutrition therapy can help you meet your goals or you would like to set up an appointment, call Shanna Carr, RD, LD at 573-778-9348.
