Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional Counseling

The staff at Motus Integrative Health believes the motto “we are what we eat.” We understand how very easy it is to get stuck in a diet full of carbohydrates, processed sugars, and trans fats. We live in an era where food is abundant and fast has become the way of life. Unfortunately, that means many of us are eating too much fast food.

How can we help you eat better? For starters, we will evaluate your current eating habits, identify areas of deficiency and then formulate a plan to bring nutrition to a healthier level, if needed.  Our staff is extensively trained in modifying the body and its processes through food, supplements and lifestyle factors. We stay current with the scientific research on nutrition and what people should and should not be eating.

Conditions and areas where nutritional counseling may be highly effective include the following:

  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • IBS
  • Fatigue
  • Obesity
  • Weight Loss
  • Diabetes
  • Musculoskeletal and Joint Pain
  • Skin Disorders
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Premenstrual Irregularities
  • Menopause
  • Low Testosterone
  • Fatigue
  • Prenatal Care
  • Sports Nutrition and Performance Enhancement

How Does Nutrition Affect You?

There are many diseases and medical conditions that are impacted by food. For instance, if you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, you have too much salt, shown as sodium on food labels, in your diet. If you have high blood sugar or are diabetic, too many carbohydrates in your diet can make your blood sugar skyrocket, which in turn can cause severe health issues, like a diabetic coma.

Your nutritional goal is easy to read, but hard to do.  The goal is to balance the number of carbohydrates, protein, and fats in your diet. Then only consume the number of calories you will burn in a day. Sounds easy right? It would be if the food was scarce, but we all know it is omnipresent.

What are the Benefits of Good Nutrition?

What is good nutrition? Proper nutrition occurs when you consume the correct number of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to work properly.  Many nutrition experts recommend diets should contain lean protein, lots of vegetables and fruits and some whole grains. Fish high in Omega 3 should be eaten twice a week.

Good nutrition can help:

  • Reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, certain cancers, and osteoporosis
  • Reduce high blood pressure
  • Lower high cholesterol
  • Improve your well-being
  • Improve your ability to fight off illness
  • Improve your ability to recover from illness or injury
  • Increase your energy level
