Nutrition / Weight Loss


What is the role of Nutrition in Health?


The foods we eat play a huge role in our overall well being and so gaining a better understanding of how food can be used as medicine is a vital tool to have. Nutrition can help with a variety of ailments including inflammation, allergies, weight loss, cardiac health, Diabetes, pre and post-natal health, childhood nutrition, etc. Superior nutrition also plays a critical role in disease prevention. In a lot of cases, simple adjustments to the diet have demonstrated immense improvements in a person’s health and can dramatically decrease the risk of many diseases.

 

Good nutrition is the foundation of good health! The benefits of a sound nutritional program and healthy lifestyle will lead to increased energy, improved gastrointestinal function, enhanced immunity and disease prevention.

 

Naturopathic Doctors are extensively trained in nutrition and are able to offer you the individualized advice you need to optimize your health.

Meeting with a Nutritionist is a step towards living a healthier life. Because each and every one of us has different concerns regarding diet and lifestyle, our Nutritionist will formulate an individualized plan based on your own unique concerns.

BIA Testing


BIA is a method of measuring your body composition: fat, muscle, and water mass as well as basal metabolic rate and overall cell health. This quick and painless test is done in seconds after placing four electrodes on the body. From that, a reading is calculated to estimate your individual composition.

 

Research has shown that body composition is directly related to health. A normal balance of body fat is associated with good health and longevity. Excess fat in relation to lean body mass, known as altered body composition, can greatly increase your risks to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and more. BIA fosters early detection of an improper balance in your body composition, which allows for earlier intervention and prevention. BIA provides a measurement of fluid and body mass that can be a critical assessment tool for your current state of health.

 

BIA also measures your progress as you improve your health. Improving your BIA measurement, or maintaining a healthy BIA measurement, can help keep your body functioning properly for healthy aging.
