Nutrition Q & A
Why is good nutrition important?
While everybody knows a balanced diet helps to keep the pounds off, the benefits of good nutrition go far beyond weight loss. Good nutrition helps to:
- Lessen the risk of some diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, some cancers, and osteoporosis
- Lower high cholesterol and high blood pressure
- Increase your well-being
- Boost your immune system
- Speed up recovery time after an illness or injury
- Raise your energy level
How can I eat better?
Healthy eating doesn’t demand a total overhaul of your diet. Instead, just try to be more mindful of what you put in your mouth at every meal. Here are a few pointers:
- Opt for natural foods or ingredients
- Avoid processed foods like baked goods, chips, and frozen meals
- When you eat out, choose foods that are baked, broiled, roasted, seared, poached, or steamed
How does nutrition affect my health?
Nutrition and good health are intertwined. Eating to improve your health is an aspect of what’s known as functional nutrition, a customized approach to optimal health care. More than an eating philosophy, functional nutrition is part of a systems-oriented approach to better health.
The idea behind functional nutrition is to look at your symptoms, along with factors like your diet, lifestyle, stress, medications, exposure to toxins, and history of antibiotic use. Then, the certified health and nutrition coaches at Monarque Health & Wellness come up with an overall plan to optimize your well-being.
What can functional nutrition treat?
Children and adults alike may benefit from functional nutrition. In children, diets lacking the proper nutrition or high in toxins can contribute to behavioral issues. Functional nutrition may help with:
- Feeding and growth
- Behavioral problems
In adults, it may help with:
- Cognitive issues or fogginess
Certified health coaches and nutritional coaches at Monarque Health & Wellness discuss your health condition and overall wellness. They help you determine the type of changes to your eating habits needed to optimize your health.
