Therapeutic nutrition counseling is provided when specific areas of concern are evident such as: lack of energy, poor sleep, gastrointestinal problems, emotional imbalance, prediabetes, unintended weight loss, weight gain or overweight conditions. Many chronic disease states also can benefit from dietary interventions, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and kidney disease. Conversations about these conditions may include recommendations for dietary adjustments, with the objective of reducing or eliminating your symptoms, striving to determine the underlying cause and bolstering general health.
Nowadays, it isn’t always easy to be a “good” eater or to raise a “good” eater. Nutrition counseling using evidence-based research should be family-oriented to help you eat well and raise a family of competent eaters. Topics addressed should include: child feeding, picky eaters, the feeding relationship, knowing your feeding role, meal planning, and how to get started and keep cooking.
Nutrition has become a critical touch point for understanding not only diet but also an individual’s total state of health and wellbeing. The alarming obesity and diabetes epidemics currently plaguing the US have prompted many scientific investigations into the complex aspects of food and nutrition, and these studies are continually yielding new knowledge about the importance of diet, from improving cognition to resolving conditions of ill health.
Food, it turns out, can be a major factor for re-establishing wellness when good health is compromised. This is why the concept of “food as medicine” is becoming better understood all the time.
