Are you looking to make lifestyle changes for the better? Do you struggle with excess weight, stress or anxiety? The answer to your problems may lie in what you’re eating. At Integrative Medical Solutions, we understand the relationship between our bodies and the food we use to fuel them. Our trained professionals can provide nutritional counseling to help you make smarter, healthier choices and improve your overall wellness.
Why is nutrition so important?
Ever heard the phrase, “you are what you eat?” While not totally accurate, this phrase is an important lesson – what you put inside your body has a big effect on your overall wellness. Not only does this affect your weight and fitness level, but certain foods and substances can also raise or lower stress levels, anxiety, inflammation and more. We provide counseling to show patients how small nutritional changes can make a big impact in their quality of life. Call and find out how!
What nutritional changes can I make?
While it’s important to meet with a trained professional to fully discuss the impact that your diet and nutrition have on your life, there are some simple steps that you can take to start making those changes yourself. Think about the following small things that could make a big difference:
More Fruits & Vegetables
Cutting the amount of butter and oil used in cooking
Limiting intake of sodium and sugar to only what’s necessary
Avoiding foods that cause inflammation
Choosing leaner protein options
Please consult one of our nutritional professionals before making any major dietary changes.
