Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition for A Happier and Healthier Life

  • Healthy eating is one tenant of a well-balanced life. Healthy eating means getting enough of every important nutrient; choosing a variety of foods from every food group; and avoiding excessive fat, sugar, salt and alcohol. Your physical, mental and social health are connected to your diet and to one another. Improving one element can have a positive impact on the others. Working on your physical, mental and social health while you are improving your diet strengthens your efforts in every area, leading to an improved overall sense of well-being.

Personalized Nutrition Therapy for Your Individual Needs

  • In the functional & integrative medicine circle, we say “Food is Medicine.”

  • This is because food actually provides information to each and every cell in your body. Depending on what you are eating, this translates as either good information or bad information.

  • In addition to food as information, your cells get information from other inputs such as your environment, your sleep patterns, your activity and exercise levels, and the way you manage stress.

  • These lifestyle patterns have an impact on you and all that you are made of – your brain, heart, kidneys, hormones, digestive health, hair and more. Nutrition is one of the most crucial parts of the picture.

  • We all benefit from good nutrition. However, each of us has different needs at different times in our life. Our unique set of issues merits personalized nutrition and lifestyle assessment. This helps us better understand and apply specific protocols that address the root of matters, not just the overt symptoms.

  • By getting to the root of your symptoms, we’re able to obtain valuable insights into functional tools that are available to help you thrive.  At ARC, we use evidence-based nutrition strategies to evaluate your health through the lens of food sensitivities, nutrient deficiencies, chronic inflammation, the effect of unstable blood sugar, and the status of your gastrointestinal tract. We focus on developing a nourishing and sustainable plan that will help you honor and celebrate who you are and help you live with increased energy, focus, and purpose.

Summary

Remember… your body and your mind are intricately connected. Imbalances in your body and compromised gut integrity can significantly challenge the wellbeing of your mind; these factors can lead to depression, anxiety, brain fog, mood instability, and difficulty focusing.  When you experience mood disturbances, it is more difficult to sort through lies and believe truth about yourself; these thought patterns have the potential to become destructive and perpetuate a negative cycle, directly impacting your health and causing unwanted symptoms.
