Nutrition influences our entire person. Depending on how we eat, it can be a big positive or a big negative. It affects out ability to think clearly and it affects how quickly our body can heal. While on the path to wellness, good nutrition is vital to being totally well. Bad nutrition can even hinder our progress. It won’t be the primary driving force, but good nutrition will help us to achieve mental wellness or gain freedom from addiction. Good nutrition will also vary depending on the person. Because everyone is unique. From your exercise level to your personal food preferences, there are so many factors to consider for each individual.
Plans for unique humans.
Our registered dietitian will meet with you to discuss all of your unique needs. You determine the path forward. If you need general nutrition advice or if you need help eating with diabetes, we can help you achieve your goals. Your program will be 100% unique to you considering your lifestyle, medical history, and even personal preferences. Your success is dependent on the plan being fit to you and not the other way around. Your plan will vary from others. You might need a structured meal plan, you might need education, or you might just need accountability from a trusted professional.
Feel better, period.
As your nutrition improves, your body reacts positively. Because you start to feel better physically, you will naturally feel more comfortable in your own skin. Your body needs certain nutrients and processes everything differently, so when you give your body what it needs, it thrives. When you feel well physically, your responses to outside influence become more rational and level headed. So on the path to mental wellness, good nutrition can give you a significant boost.
Nutrition influences your mood.
When you’re eating well, you just feel better. This is influenced by several different factors. One, by regulating your blood sugar your ability to handle stress improves and you don’t experience the emotional highs and lows as intensely. The right vitamin and mineral intake can help improve some mental health issues as well. Lastly, when you are in recovery or or therapy, you need your brain to be operating optimally. The right amount of good fats contributes to your brain’s development and promotes physical healing.
