Gender affirming nutrition and counseling
Eating disorders, disordered eating patterns, and body image issues have been found more prevalent among the trangender community though access to care is often blocked by lack of provider knowledge on both eating disorders and gender affirming care and/or discrimination in health care. At Body Wise we celebrate gender diversity and fluidity and believe that everyone should have access to gender affirming care without stigma, bias, or discrimination.
Along with this we strive to be aware and educated on the additional nutritional needs during Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and gender affirming procedures. We are honored to be able to offer a mental health letter for gender affirming care as part of our work together.
