Diet & Nutrition
“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”
The food we eat is critical in our health and healing. With every meal, we are either feeding pathology and imbalances or we are nourishing our immune system with the building blocks it needs to function optimally. The question is, which is which?
The modern industrialization of food has offered many advancements to agriculture, at the same time, our food has also been altered in ways which have given rise to a variety of inflammatory disorders, allergies, and factors that are negatively influencing our immune function. Understanding how the food you eat is helping and/or harming you in a key step supporting your health.
At The Center, we recognize there are pros and cons to everything and there is no one diet that works for everyone all the time. Our approach to supporting our clients in creating a healthy diet is to meet you where you are and take small, realistic and maintainable steps together. This approach gently and easily creates a new relationship with food and lifestyle.
We are typically not advocates of “diets”. Diets usually don’t work and when you stop the diet you are right where you were before the diet. We empower our clients with information and an understanding of their personal needs and goals. Usually, the process of implementing dietary changes is a smooth and much easier process than ever thought to be possible because when one does different, they get different. Small changes create change causing you to feel better. Feeling better encourages one to continue to make choices that support their health.
In addition to careful observation and tracking of food and symptoms, empirical testing can be done to quickly learn how the foods we are eating are impacting our health.
