As a nurse practitioner, Rachel Betthauser understands how important it is to learn to have a healthy relationship with food and to make healthy lifestyle choices.
Board-Certified Nurse Practitioner
I've been a nurse for more than 10 years, primarily working with patients in critical care/intensive care unit and later-stage heart disease. Most recently I've worked with individuals experiencing heart failure and heart transplant. Heart disease is something that is very often preventable. And for this reason, I wanted to find ways to help people earlier in the process, when significant changes can be made. Being able to help people learn to have a healthier relationship with food and to make healthier lifestyle choices is very rewarding to me.
In regard to weight loss and weight management, I can relate to VIVA Wellness clients. I too have had a life-long struggle with weight. I have tried different weight loss programs and clinics, but when I came to VIVA Wellness I knew I was in the right place.
Here we take a different approach. We help our clients focus on health goals.
We take a comprehensive approach to wellness, as opposed to prescribing restrictive diets and medications. We help people develop a healthy relationship with food.
