Nutrition

Most people underestimate the impact of having irregular or uncomfortable digestion. Symptoms of constipation, bloating, diarrhea, acid reflux are extremely common yet often overlooked and overmedicated. Those symptoms and conditions can often be addressed with proper nutritional changes and support. Talking to a holistic dietician about your current food habits and lifestyle can help you shed light on what specific behaviors can help you to improve your digestive health and decrease the reliance on medication and supplements. 

In the course of a nutrition consultation the dietitian would review 

  • your schedule and pattern of eating whether it is regular or chaotic

  • your default setting and “go to meals” when life gets busy and you do not have time to plan your meals

  • your digestive symptoms and the details of your bowel habits. 

  • your relationship with food and appetite awareness (hunger, fullness)

  • your food preferences and overall satisfaction

  • your medical history and medication prescription

  • your nutritional supplement intake  

  • your lifestyle, family or social situation and the effect is has on "how, when, how much and what you eat".
