Nutrition Q&A

What is a nutritionist?

A nutritionist is an expert who can help you navigate nutritional information and adjust your diet to improve your wellbeing. Regardless of your health, the on-staff nutritionist at Nutura Clinic can help you identify flaws in your dietary habits and get the nutrients your body needs for better functioning. 

It’s easy to go through life, eating the foods that make you happy at the moment. Fast food, sugary treats, and generally unbalanced meals might be easy to find or prepare, but taking the time to plan your meals to include the nutrients you need can improve your health in the long term. There are many benefits to visiting a nutritionist, and the team at Nutura Clinic can help you identify specific symptoms and conditions that proper nutrition can improve. 

What should I expect during my visit to a nutritionist?

When you come to Nutura Clinic for nutritional counseling with a nutritionist, your consultation begins with a discussion of your medical history, current health, eating habits, dietary restrictions, and other relevant information. Once your nutritionist has a thorough understanding of the way you eat and your general wellbeing, they identify the nutrients you lack and help you find ways to integrate them into your diet.

Your nutritionist also helps you set specific, attainable goals to work toward as you undergo nutritional counseling. They help you make a personalized plan for your diet and may recommend herbal supplements to take if you need them. 

When should I consider visiting a nutritionist?

There are many reasons to consider visiting a nutritionist. Even if nutritional advice wasn’t your original reason for visiting Nutura Clinic, the team might add nutritional counseling to your comprehensive treatment plan. Getting the nutrients you need with help from a nutritionist can help improve:

  • Sleep problems
  • Stress
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Chronic pain
  • Slow metabolism
  • Low energy or fatigue
  • Digestive issues
  • Healing after an injury

While you can gain some benefit from exploring nutrition on your own and modifying your diet, a nutritionist can identify the specific vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need in your diet to get the benefits you need. They can also answer your questions about nutrition and give you the tools to plan healthy meals.
