Nutrition and Wellness
First Choice Nutrition & Wellness is a division of First Choice Neurology managed by Eileen Higgins, MD, FACS. She educates her patients and provides personalized, custom plans aimed at controlling and reversing specific disease processes, weight loss and promoting a healthy lifestyle in general.
Lifestyle, including nutrition and supplements, is emphasized, rather than the use of drugs or surgical approaches. The patients receive baseline and periodic anthropomorphic measurements, including percent body fat, weight, height, and BMI. Goals are established and a plan is put in place to guide patients to their objectives.

Good nutrition and exercise don’t just slow down muscle loss and help with weight control and guard against heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, cancer, even the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Those risks increase with family history, inactive lifestyle, and eating a poor diet.
Many chronic health conditions are preventable. They're the result of years of a poor diet, lack of exercise, and prolonged stress. Studies suggest that many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed with lifestyle medicine.
