Why consider "Nutrition" as first line of therapy for your condition?
Food is the foundation of health:
There is no person on the plant that doesn't benefit from eating healthy!
Safe and non-invasive:
Compared to medications or surgery, dietary changes are generally safe and non-invasive. This makes them suitable for long-term management and often have fewer side effects
Effective for various conditions:
Numerous studies have shown the effectiveness of nutrition therapy in managing a wide range of conditions like heart health, hormonal imbalances, weight management, diabetes, neurological and immune problems, gut health, etc.
It's a lifestyle approach for all body systems:
Nutritional therapy never benefits just one body system at a time but has a cascading positive effect, which makes it even more powerful
What's our "Nutrition" approach and why it shows great results?
Our approach is more personalised to your condition, evidence-based, and unique as we combine many holistic ways into ONE therapy and it's called Integrative nutrition. This goes beyond just food and calories. It considers all aspects of your life, including your physical, mental, emotional, and environmental factors, to create a personalized plan for optimal well-being.
Here are some of the benefits of practicing "integrative nutrition":
Improved overall health and well-being
Increased energy levels
Weight loss or management
Reduced stress and anxiety
Reduced risk of chronic diseases
Here are some key principles of integrative nutrition:
Food is medicine: Integrative nutrition views food as a powerful tool for healing and preventing disease. It emphasizes eating whole, unprocessed foods that are rich in nutrients and antioxidants.
Bio-individuality: Everyone is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. Integrative nutrition takes this into account by creating personalized plans based on your individual needs and preferences.
Root cause analysis: Integrative nutrition doesn't just focus on treating symptoms; it also seeks to identify and address the underlying causes of health problems. This may involve looking at factors such as stress, digestion, inflammation, and nutrient deficiencies.
Holistic approach: Integrative nutrition considers all aspects of your life, not just your diet. This may include looking at your relationships, career, exercise habits, and sleep patterns.
Coaching and support: Integrative nutrition practitioners typically provide coaching and support to help you make sustainable changes to your lifestyle.
Thus, nutrition is just one main pillar integrative nutrition counseling and our overall health! When we use nutrition in tandem with other strategies like sleep hygiene, stress/adrenal health, blood sugar management, elimination diets, personalised and positive lifestyle changes, gut health, replenishing nutrient gaps using vital nutrients and macros- in the right ratios, superior quality products in correct doses and timings of supplements and the right superfoods, watching for drug-nutrient interactions, it is called integrative nutrition!
Well, this might sound overwhelming, but that's why we always start with foods first approach, and move to which strategy could work best for you best, so it's not very restrictive for long and also not financially burdensome. It's the concoction of these strategies which leads to "Integrative Nutrition". Bottom line is, we try to combine some of these that would best fit your needs and goals, health conditions, lifestyle and budget.
We specialise in offering one-on-one nutrition counseling sessions (couples and families are welcome too)! Fiirst session could be longer than others, mainly for in-depth nutrition assessment and figuring out your GOALS + your ROADMAP. We break down your goals it into smaller and lower hanging goals that could work for you. We re-evaluate and monitor these as we go.
Gut health is the GATEWAY of good overall health, we always like to keep that in perspective, using 'food as medicine' and 'personalisation'!
