Functional Nutrition & Wellness

What Can You Expect?

More often than not, your body sometimes doesn’t have the nutrition tools needed to actually heal or prevent disease. The right supplements help the body to function, heal after injury and bring internal balance to your whole system. Supplements are the building blocks that help create a whole diet plan. They are an often overlooked yet vital step for having a healthy body.

As part of a total wellness program, we incorporate clinical nutrition along with chiropractic and other forms of alternative healthcare.

We will recommend foods to avoid as well as healthy meal options designed to increase your energy and boost your immune system.

Increased Energy

The tried-and-true advice for healthful eating also applies to keeping your energy level high: eat a balanced diet that includes a variety of unrefined carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, with an emphasis on vegetables, whole grains, and healthy oils.

Stress and Anxiety

A diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits is a healthier option than eating a lot of simple carbohydrates found in processed foods. When you eat is also important. Don’t skip meals. Doing so may result in drops in blood sugar that cause you to feel jittery, which may worsen underlying anxiety.

Weight Loss

In order to lose weight with a healthy diet, you need to take a few things into account. In addition to the amount of energy you consume, the type of food you eat also plays an important role. Certain foods should be completely avoided when trying to lose weight. Others, on the other hand, can actually help burn fat.

Immune System Improvement

You can boost your immune system by making sure to get enough of vitamins like A, C, E, B6, D, and minerals like zinc, iron, and selenium. It is also helpful to eat enough protein, consume prebiotic foods, and eat brightly colored fruits and vegetables which contain immune-boosting antioxidants.

Nutritional Counseling FAQs

Our wide range of services allow us to meet the needs of working professionals, athletes, or overwhelmed individuals looking to live a healthier lifestyle. Many individuals who have been diagnosed with a disease like diabetes or cardiovascular seek nutrition counseling to help manage their condition. If you find yourself wondering how to eat healthier or how to navigate the grocery store then nutrition counseling may be a good match.

As a practice we value and look at the whole person. Food is only part of the equation that makes you unique. There are other factors like physical activity, coping patterns, lifestyle and culture that effect leading a healthy lifestyle. We base our nutrition plan recommendations on your foundation as a person.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN) are food and nutrition experts. An RDN’s expertise includes explaining the role of food and nutrition in your health and counseling clients that may have chronic diseases such as Diabetes, Celiac Disease and/or cardiovascular disease.
