WHAT WE KNOW—Diet Impacts Well-Being
Holistic Nutrition Therapy is all about finding what foods to eat for YOU. A wide range of variables affects YOUR health. These include emotional and environmental stressors, sleep, exercise, hormones, diet and more. Identifying the right combination of food and supplements for your bio-individuality is a comprehensive process and a one-size-fits-all solution rarely results in success.
There is strong research evidence that connects diet and the well-being. Changing your diet can help with LOTS of pesky problems. Everyday, at Healthy Nest we see how diet matters—figuring out general digestive problems, digestive food intolerance, going gluten-free or dairy-free, smoothing over blood sugar imbalance, increasing mental clarity, addressing signs & symptoms of ADHD, dyslexia, and dysgraphia. Eating the right foods can even strengthen your immune system, and minimize your allergies. At Healthy Nest, WE KNOW, Diet makes a difference in how YOU feel!
WHAT WE DO
At Healthy Nest, we assess what you are eating with a critical eye toward nutrient density, rhythm, positive habits and mindfulness and balance. Then, we start making small food change suggestions. Changes are mutually agreed upon and layer over time. So, in no time, diet is significantly improved, and we are well on our way toward new habits and meeting your health goals.
Exactly HOW do we do this? The answer is with grace, patience, and experience with what works. We have collected a large database of delicious healthful & clean recipes and menu plans. We have good food ideas and short-cuts that make food and lifestyle changes doable and accessible. We blood test and hormone test and supplement when necessary.
Healthy Nest’s approach is targeted and multi-faceted. Our goals are better nutrition, pointed meal planning and nutritional analysis, elimination of food allergies and digestive problems, and better balance.
