How nutrition counseling can help you

How nutrition counseling can help you

Nutrition counseling can be good for anyone’s body, but it may not always be medically necessary. For example, nutrition counseling may be part of rehabilitation after surgery.

Your doctor can devise a diet plan to help you get adequate nutrition after your surgery. A healthy diet should help in the speedy recovery process essential for healing minor and severe surgical procedures alike. They can also help people with a particular type of illness manage their diets better, making treatment easier to deal with.

By working with a nutritionist, you can improve your diet and actually reach life goals, increase your health and energy levels, and optimize physical conditions like body fat or cholesterol.

Our counselors give you personalized guidance

There is more to nutrition counseling than providing general nutritional information. This type of guidance is personalized and customizes dietary guidance based on an in-depth analysis of your circumstances.

We consider your nutrition, daily life rhythm, activity level, body health, conditioning and physical exercises to create a diet for you.

Every patient generally has at least one goal when coming to nutrition counseling, and the entire process varies with every patient. For example, weight loss needs a different approach than post-surgical recovery.

Nutrition counseling takes into account your special goals and situation.

Since nutritional counseling is not one-size-fits-all, the counseling process will differ depending on your unique medical needs, goals, preferences and lifestyle. Depending on your situation, you'll meet regularly with a registered dietitian to discuss any relevant factors like your current patient status and use of medications that may affect your nutrition needs.

Lajas Medical Group covers significant nutritional counseling that can help manage several conditions, including:

» Allergies
» Diabetes
» Osteoporosis
» Pregnancy
» Heart Disease

» High Blood Pressure
» High Cholesterol
» Cancer
» Obesity or Overweight
» Menopause

While some patients come for general nutrition consultation, many others come due to an illness or disease. Over the years, we have been helping patients with their diets, nutrition education, and improved lifestyle to overcome their condition.

Benefits from Nutrition Counseling Sessions

Here are some of the several benefits you may experience from our nutrition counseling sessions.

Get rid of old habits

When you come to see a nutritionist, you're looking for someone not only to listen but also make recommendations that are tailored to your health. Our professional nutritionists will analyze your condition and go over personal history in order to create a plan just for you.

You may find yourself here because of any number of reasons, but the end result is that you need help. Over time, unhealthy habits can take you off track and eventually weigh down on your body. Overcoming those habits can be difficult, but we want to help you make new ones to replace them in order to live a healthier lifestyle. We'll provide you with tools to maintain those new healthy habits so you can keep going strong!

Healthy, tasty food

Our certified nutrition consultant and our registered dietitian not only make sure you have the healthy necessary ingredients for your recovery process or whatever goal you have in life, but they also take care to ensure tasty food is on the menu.

We have a tasty diet planned out for you so that you can have something delicious every day. We recommend regularly eating healthy foods to maintain a balanced lifestyle.

Prevent illness & boost your energy

The body requires a lot of energy to function in a day which relates directly to food and lifestyle choices.

Making decisions about what we put in our mouths is one of the most important things we can do on an individual level to influence our health and well-being but also that of the other people.

So it's important to get the nutrition and proper nutrients so that we are healthy enough to perform our everyday activities.

Understand your body

You may have a lot of things on your plate every day, so it can seem like there's little time to focus on self-awareness. However, there are many ways to work with and learn about yourself no matter how busy you get!

It's important to understand your body and listen to what it tells you. You will want to develop a healthy diet for yourself, eating all the right foods that can potentially improve performance or prevent injury & illness. Make sure you know the warning signs when things aren't quite right with your health & body, and we hope we can help!
