Many of today’s health problems and chronic diseases are the result of weaknesses in the body’s physiological systems caused by poor nutrition. Nutritionists understand the body and honor its incredible ability to restore, regenerate, and heal itself, when given the proper nutrients and tools to do so!
Nutrition counseling is not just about dieting! It analyzes various health needs including diet, exercise, goals, lifestyle, and any other aspects of a person’s life that may affect their eating habits. Many people have developed unhealthy behaviors when it comes to food. Some use food as a source of comfort, and others deny themselves food in fear of being overweight. Understanding the root cause of your eating habits is a big step toward learning how to provide your body with the proper nutrients it needs to thrive!
With all of the Media “experts” giving us different advice about food, it’s no wonder it has become such a messy subject! Food “rules” to live by: Eat four of these every day. Avoid these foods at all costs. It’s ok to eat this in moderation. Drink this every night before bedtime. Don’t drink this in the morning. It’s all so complicated! Fad diets just complicate matters further by adding MORE rules!
Nutritional counseling doesn’t give you “rules.” Instead, it assesses your lifestyle and centers on the idea that real health can be achieved through a holistic approach to nutrition. We approach wellness by focusing on the importance of a properly prepared, nutrient-dense, whole food meal plan paired with a well-balanced lifestyle. Food is powerful and proper nutrition allows you to unlock the benefits. A well-balanced diet and practicing good nutrition can hep improve conditions like fatigue, mood swings, skin conditions, digestion problems, arthritis, headaches, high blood pressure, and weight problems. Once you meet with a nutrition counselor, you can get to the root cause of health concerns instead of just treating the symptoms. When good nutrition is part of your lifestyle, you will look and feel better, have more energy, and don’t feel like you need to try every new fad diet that comes along!
