You Are What You Eat!
It's simple: healthy food choices lead to a healthier you. But sometimes, it's difficult to know what those choices may be at a given moment. Certain foods react with medications, trigger allergic responses, irritate or fatigue the digestive system, deplete calcium resources, block nutrient absorption, and in general, counteract the good intentions behind your meals!
“Let food be thy medicine”
When treating an illness or injury, food can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Sure, everyone knows that junk food is bad ... but did you know that consuming nightshades, such as tomatoes and potatoes, may be exacerbating your arthritis symptoms by inducing inflammation? Were you aware that drinking black tea during meals can interfere with iron absorption? Could your morning cup of coffee be sabotaging your important company presentation by triggering acid reflux and damaging your voice? Our nutritional team can offer practical dietary strategies as well as help you integrate and implement them into your daily life.
