Nutrition is a broad term for how our body uses nutrients within food for energy and the relationship between diet, health and disease. Nutrition is different for everyone because everyone is different! We are all unique and process and break down foods differently. Therefore, we will not have the same requirements, effects, benefits or consequences as the next person. Yet, we always try to generalize nutrition! One way of eating will not fit all.
Nutritional changes can help with symptoms and conditions like:
- trouble losing weight and maintaining weight
- autoimmune conditions (lupus, Hashimotos, celiac etc)
- blood sugar regulation problems- hypoglycemic tendencies
- trouble sleeping
- mood stabilization
- Sport specific training and more!
Nutrition and Functional Medicine go hand in hand. Functional Medicine is an individualized approach to medicine with a focus on root cause, rather than symptoms. Here at Just For The Health Of It, our doctors look at the whole body, including how you fuel it. What we put into our bodies is very important and is essential for healing and functioning properly. As we grow and go through new phases in life, so does the body. It will not need the same thing it did 10 years ago, or even 1 year ago. Functional Medicine promotes interactive care that requires you to be the driver of your health. We are here as a guide and to help you make new lifestyle modifications, so they will stick.
We have different types of therapies and tailor treatments to each person based on their current condition and situation. They include:
- Nutritional Therapy and Assessment
- Targeted supplementation
- Stress Management
- Mineral Hair Analysis
