Nutri Life Clinic
HNFI's vision is to play a significant role in influencing the society to improve its nutritional well being. It does so by imparting continuous nutrition education through publication of journals, articles in the media and personal interaction. The free consultation clinics called "Nutri Life Clinic" are a vital part of that initiative.
HNFI is one of the earliest organizations to introduce the concept of a "Free Nutrition Consultation" at Chennai under the name "Nutri Life Clinic". Currently "Nutri Life Clinic" is operating in three cities. The nutritionists who run these clinics consult and counsel people on their nutritional problems.
"Nutri Life Clinic" will provide Free Nutrition Counselling in three cities as of now. It is present in Chennai, Bengaluru and Delhi. The free clinic in Chennai has been operating for the last four years. The free clinics in Bengaluru and Delhi began in April 2012 and July 2012 respectively. The consultants would be able to counsel persons with general debility, weight loss, weight gain, malnutrition induced conditions like obesity and persons suffering from life style diseases like Diabetes, Hypertension etc. Anyone from children, young parents to elderly could avail the services of the clinic.
The purpose is to reach as many people who really need advice on proper diet and nutrition counselling and to provide guidance depending on the specific condition of the patient, on healthy life-style and nutritious diet with proper exercise.
The consultants, by and large will be able to answer queries on the email and they can be reached on the web-site www.hnfi.org
