Nutritional Guidance Q & A

What is nutritional guidance?

Your body has nutritional requirements to stay healthy and functional. When your diet doesn’t meet those requirements, you can experience nutrient deficiencies and imbalances that impact your health and wellness. Nutritional guidance gives you the necessary tools to plan a healthy and balanced diet.

Although nutritional guidance at Healing Head To Toe is useful for people with metabolic illnesses, existing nutrient deficiencies, or dietary restrictions, anyone can benefit from these services. Poor nutrition can have a greater impact on your health than you realize, especially if you don’t track your eating habits.

When you first visit Healing Head To Toe for nutritional guidance, your provider reviews your medical history and performs an evaluation. Lab testing offers insights into your current nutrition and overall health. Your provider uses the information to create customized diet planning and guidance.

What are the benefits of nutritional guidance?

When you learn about nutrition and how to maintain a healthy diet, you gain the tools to eat healthier without overthinking or questioning your choices. A nutritional diet offers plenty of advantages for your health and wellness, including:

  • More energy
  • Better immunity
  • Healthier skin
  • Weight management
  • Lower disease risks
  • Better digestion
  • Stronger bones and muscles

Maintaining a balanced diet throughout your life may increase your longevity. It helps control chronic diseases while also lowering your risk. You can also engage in personal training at Healing Head To Toe for additional health and wellness benefits.

What constitutes a nutritional diet?

A nutritional diet includes a diverse range of both macro- and micronutrients. You may be more familiar with macronutrients, like carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. There are “good” carbohydrates you should include in your diet, like fiber, and carbohydrates that you should limit, like processed or refined sugars.

Micronutrients are also essential. You can find them in many foods, but they’re rich in fruits, veggies, fish, legumes, and other whole-food sources. A few essential micronutrients are:

  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
  • Iron
  • Zinc
  • B vitamins
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin K

Your provider can teach you about the roles of these nutrients in your body and where to find them while shopping for food.
