Nutrition is an essential aspect of good health. Without proper nutrients the body is unable to function at peak performance. We lose energy, develop unwanted symptoms, and open ourselves to illness and disease. Each individual metabolizes food and uses nutrients differently. At Ways to Wellness MD, a certified nutritionist works closely with you to identify your body’s unique response to food. The nutritionist then addresses your nutritional needs and health goals with a detailed food and, if necessary, supplement plan. At every step, we provide education and support to enable you to learn how to successfully take control of your own nutritional health and metabolic needs.
Your individualized nutrition/supplement plan will address needs based on a number of diagnostic tools. This may include a detailed health and environmental history, live blood analysis, pH testing, or various blood tests, which can identify specific micronutrient deficiencies or various food sensitivities.
Benefits of Nutritional Counseling
Even with the best of efforts, eating a diet that addresses all your unique nutritional needs can be extremely difficult. Unfortunately the soil has been nutrient depleted, and conventional farming has genetically modified the food we eat. Nutritional counseling can help you learn how to properly nourish, balance and fuel your body. Benefits may include weight loss, increased energy, enhanced cognitive focus, improved sleep quality, better digestion, a stronger immune system, reduced risk of disease, as well as improved emotional wellbeing.
