Nutritional Counseling – Garden City, MI
Receiving proper nutrition is one of the best methods of preventing illness, injury, and psychological distress; it is also one of the easiest. Science shows that foods impact different areas of the body and brain, and utilizing nutrition in thoughtful ways can improve mood, prepare the body for physical activity, help the body recover from physical activity, or boost the immune system.
Nutritional counseling can be used to treat a number of conditions, both physiological and psychological. Proper nutrition has been shown to help with chronic conditions such as diabetes, allergies, and celiac disease as well as cardiac issues. Nutritional education and awareness can also play a role in the treatment of mental health diagnoses such as eating disorders and anxiety. Other conditions that can be treated with proper nutrition include high or low blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity.
Contrary to popular belief, nutritional counseling is not just about what foods to eat. A person who participates in nutritional counseling learns about how different foods affect their body, and what mental and physical changes to expect as their nutrition changes. The educational experience of counseling facilitates growth and change to promote happiness and health.
At Michigan Chiropractic Specialists, clients can expect to work closely with a nutritionist to think about their goals for the future and identify how to stay on track with their goals in a long-term capacity. Many people believe nutritional counseling is all about food when in reality it is about our behavior as it relates to food.
The benefit to working with one of the specialists at our Garden City, Michigan office is that you are working with a partner, not a clinician who is telling you what you need to do to improve your health. Our nutritional specialists walk the path alongside their patients and share in their successes as well as their setbacks; they provide support, rather than total control.
It’s your life, live it in health. Call us today and let Michigan Chiropractic Specialists help you have a better quality of life.
