Nutrition Consultation Q&A

What is a nutrition consultation?

Nutrition consultations at Balanced Health include an evaluation of your current nutritional habits and custom meal plans that improve your health, well-being, and overall quality of life. Good nutrition is the best way to stay healthy and avoid obesity or other medical problems. 

Balanced Health uses foods as medicine to help you avoid disruptive medications and invasive procedures.

What are the benefits of good nutrition?

Good nutrition offers you and following wellness benefits:

  • Higher energy levels
  • Lower risk of nutrient deficiencies
  • Easier weight management
  • Reduced risk of obesity
  • Healthier hair, skin, and nails
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Lower cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Improved body composition
  • Reduced risk of chronic diseases
  • Better quality of life

Eating nutritious foods reduces your chance of developing diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and other chronic conditions. It can also enhance brain functioning and reduce your chance of age-related cognitive decline. 

What should I expect during a nutrition consultation?

During nutrition consultations at Balanced Health, your provider weighs you, evaluates your body mass index (BMI), and checks your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They complete a physical exam to evaluate your overall health and look for signs of disease.

The Balanced Health team may recommend you complete blood tests, urine testing, or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out nutrient deficiencies and other medical problems. They then tailor a nutrition plan that’s best for you.

How can I maintain exceptional nutritional habits?

After you receive a customized exercise and diet plan, which may include dietary supplements, follow the plan as instructed by your Balanced Health provider. Eat nutritious foods, avoid junk food, and drink plenty of water. Get at least seven hours of uninterrupted sleep each night and keep your stress levels low.

The Balanced Health team follows up with you periodically to make sure your nutrition plan works effectively for weight loss or healthy weight maintenance. They make changes to your plan if needed to ensure the best outcome. Periodic blood tests let your naturopathic specialist know if you’re getting enough essential nutrients to maintain superior health.
