Let medicine be thy food and food be thy medicine.
There is no more important decision for your health than which 2,000 to 2,500 calories you choose to put in your mouth each day.
At Dignity Integrative, your initial consultation will begin with a thorough review of what you eat and drink on a daily basis. In many cases, chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, fatigue, or even cancer can be the result of years of either nutritional deficits or toxins accumulated over time. These conditions can be treated with medication — but nutrition can address their root causes.
Your plan to reach full health and wellness will include personalized nutritional coaching and recommendations, as well as ongoing coaching to help you ensure you reach your goals.
Why nutrition is so important
Simply put, proper nutrition will ensure you live a longer, healthier life.
The scientific literature on the connection between diet and health is extensive. For example, eating too much or too little of certain foods and nutrients “can raise the risk of dying of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes,” according to a summary from NIH.
Good nutrition can also:
Reduce high blood pressure and lower cholesterol
Improve your mood and well-being
Improve your immune system and ability to fight off illness
Improve your ability to recover from injury
Increase your energy levels and improve your sleep
Dignity Integrative Health and Wellness provides nutritional counseling depending on your blood work or results of past testing, a review of your current diet, and your personal goals for improving health and wellness.
Following an initial visit, additional lab testing (if recommended), and a review of your health plan, all Dignity Integrative patients are provided monthly coaching with a certified health coach to ensure follow-up, adjustment, or re-prioritization as necessary.
