Nutrition management is not always a component of recovery that patients and their families consider. Health comes from within, and it is important to nourish your body properly. If a patient has difficulty eating or keeping food down, food may be provided through a tube to ensure proper nourishment. Enteral Nutrition Therapy is appropriate for patients who cannot swallow due to severe medical conditions. This type of therapy helps to maintain proper nutrition so patients can keep up with necessary caloric and vitamin intake.
