Nutrition & Wellness Q & A

How does nutrition impact your health?

Every cell in your body is composed of and runs on nutrients from your food, and everything you eat has a direct impact on your immediate and future health. Heavy meals, for example, can cause decreased energy in the short term and artery damage down the road.

Your food intake also affects your weight and risks for chronic disease. Poor dietary habits increase your risk for:

  • Obesity
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Mood disorders
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Certain cancers

Overeating, undereating, limiting food groups, and eating unhealthy foods can all be problematic, so it’s important to establish proper nutrient intake with help from your health care provider.

Which nutrients are vital for health?

Our bodies need both macronutrients and micronutrients to operate at their peak performance.

Macronutrients

Food is composed mostly of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. We need a proper balance of all three to meet the demands of our bodies.

Micronutrients

Vitamins, minerals, and nutrients are also vital to our bodily systems and cells. Some people benefit from supplements to make up for dietary insufficiencies.

What nutritional therapies are offered?

The experts at the Anti-Aging & Wellness Center emphasize holistic methods to improve your health, including nutritional therapy. They help you establish healthy eating habits and replenish inadequate stores of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to restore your optimal health.

The practitioners at the center offer the following services to improve your nutrition profile and prevent disease:

  • Dietary and lifestyle counseling
  • Herbal and nutritional supplementation
  • Intravenous (IV) and injection therapy
  • Detoxification therapy

These services are based on scientific advances in nutritional medicine and the ancient premise that food is our primary form of medicine.

Which nutritional therapies are right for me?

Your naturopath performs a thorough health assessment and panel of tests to evaluate your nutrition profile. Your naturopath then helps you decide which nutritional therapies are right for you based on the results of those assessments and other factors like:

  • Your goals
  • Level of activity
  • Allergies and intolerances
  • Food preferences
  • Your level of participation

Your practitioner discusses the advantages and drawbacks of each protocol and encourages you to take an active role in treatment.
