Nutrition Q&A

What is nutrition?

Nutrition is a term that encompasses the needs of your body when it comes to what you eat. While most of the nutrients you consume come from food and beverages, you can also get them by taking herbal supplements and botanicals.  

Whole Wellness Counseling invites you to the office for personalized nutritional coaching in relation to your personal health and wellness needs. Many people don’t realize they’re deficient in specific nutrients because they don’t get enough of them in their diets, so they experience symptoms as a result.

The team teaches you about macronutrients like protein, carbs, and fat, as well as the micronutrients your body relies on for all of its functions. These include vital vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. 

What are the benefits of great nutrition?

Excellent, balanced nutrition can benefit your health and well-being in ways you might not expect. Nutritional counseling is a great choice for preventive care, in conjunction with treatment for an eating disorder, or alongside medical treatment for nutrition-related illnesses such as diabetes. 

The benefits of a healthy diet plan include:

  • More energy
  • Better immunity
  • Better sleep
  • Better cognitive function
  • Less stress
  • Better digestion
  • Weight management
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Lower blood pressure

The benefits are nearly countless, and the team can dive more into them as they discuss your health with you.

How do nutrition services work?

When you visit Whole Wellness Counseling for nutritional coaching, the team integrates clinical and practical approaches to meet your nutritional needs and improve your sense of well-being. 

They will initially ask you to  complete a health and wellness evaluation. They may ask you to keep a food journal for a while. 

Your coach will need to  know about any dietary restrictions or allergies you have so they can consider them while making recommendations. 

Your coach might give you additional lifestyle instructions like engaging in moderate physical activity every week and finding a healthy outlet for stress in your life.
