Visit a Nutritionist to Learn How to Improve Health and Look and Feel Better

Nutrition is not always given the proper credit for its influence on how people feel and their overall health. It is possible for people to live and feel good for a while on a very poor diet. Unfortunately, the damage this type of diet does to the body will eventually catch up with the individual, and the results are often severe. Everyone needs to understand what they risk when they choose to not nourish their body correctly.

Reduce Mood Swings

Nutritional Health helps to reduce depression-like symptoms  in many people and helps regulate hormonal activity. A nutrient-rich diet boosts the mood by helping people to feel more energetic and comfortable. There are some very good reasons why this happens.

One of the main reasons is because the majority of serotonin is produced in the gastrointestinal tract. This neurotransmitter is what helps humans to balance their moods, regulate their sleep, and reduce their sensations of pain. When the gastrointestinal tract is clogged with too much sugar, fat, and chemical-laden processed foods, it cannot operate correctly.

A healthy gut will produce adequate levels of serotonin. The brain is where the remainder of the serotonin in the body is made. Adding B vitamins and Vitamin D to the menu has been shown in studies to help the brain to produce serotonin.

 

Increase Cognitive Abilities

Good nutrition powers the brain and, without the help of the right foods, it is possible for people to reduce their cognitive abilities. Children need nutritional diets to help them learn faster and retain that knowledge, but the needs of adults are just as strong. Poor diets reduce the ability of everyone to retain information and learn new skills.

Boost the Memory

Memory lapses happen to everyone, but people consuming a poor diet will have more of these incidents. Studies have proven the link between diet and some forms of dementia. A perfect diet cannot guarantee someone will remain free from these types of medical issues, but it helps to reduce the rate the disease advances.

A Nutritionist will often recommend the consumption of Vitamin E to help boost memory. Not only has it been proven to be beneficial for seniors but it is believed to improve the mitochondrial function of the brain, which is essential to keep it functioning normally.

 

Speed Brain Healing

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are terrifying for the victim and their loved ones. Recovery relies on therapy, but also on nutrition. A diet high in omega-3 fatty acids speeds up the recovery of neurons after a TBI. Consuming more healthy forms of protein including chicken, fish, and lean meat could also help the brain to heal faster.

Decrease in Illness

Nutritional Wellness increases the ability of the body to fight illness and disease. A poor diet reduces the strength of the immune system and puts people more at risk of catching colds and the flu virus. People with weakened immune systems require longer recovery times from their illnesses and injuries and are susceptible to a variety of infections.

Not eating correctly increases the risk of developing diseases like heart disease, type-2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer. People that become overweight due to their diets face even higher rates of these types of diseases, and they suffer from additional problems. Too much weight puts excess pressure on the joints and reduces comfort and mobility.

Damage to Appearance

Physical appearance is related to diet in many ways. The most obvious is how the diet influences body weight, but it is not only obese people that are not eating correctly. It is possible to have a terrible diet and be thin as well, which is called “skinny-fat”. Not consuming the appropriate level of vitamins and minerals could cause hair loss and the reduction of the shine and volume of the hair. The skin becomes unbalanced and may be either too oily or too dry. Acne breakouts, poor skin tone, and other skin conditions are reflective of gastrointestinal health.

Sacrifice of Comfort

Aching joints, heartburn that causes sleepless nights, and frequent colds are annoyances that happen more often to people that do not provide their body with the healthy Nutrition Food they need. People feel sluggish and lack strength and stamina. Indigestion, bloating, and nausea are also common complaints.

Managing Chronic Disease

When it comes to particular diseases, genetics load the gun, while environment and diet pull the trigger on how severe the disease manifests. That is why it is important to eat healthy foods and avoid unhealthy foods to limit potential symptoms from certain genetic predispositions. For example, reducing sugar consumption is important for people with Type 2 diabetes, and some of the discomforts caused by cancer treatment are relieved with the right foods.

Use Supplements Wisely

Herbal supplements and vitamins are useful and should complement, rather than replace, healthy food. The best results will always come from consuming the natural nutrients in food. In some situations, more nutrients are required based on unique physiological needs. Anemia patients may require an iron or B complex supplement. Pregnant women take prenatal vitamins to ensure their growing fetus is fully supported. The need for certain supplements are temporary, but other health problems do require long-term supplement use.

There is a lot of contradictory information about health, wellness, and proper diets in the media today. People get frustrated and feel overwhelmed by the overload of information they receive. It is always a good idea to talk to a doctor before making any radical dietary changes. A nutritionist can provide a clear plan so each individual gets the calorie count and the mix of nutrients they need.
