30 Dec An Individualized Approach to Weight Loss

Carina ParikhIf you are struggling to lose weight, your nutrition can be a huge factor in helping you break through that plateau and start seeing that scale go down. With so many fad diets out there on the internet and in books, it can be confusing and difficult for people to know what they should do. In fact, these diets are so generalized, that often times they don’t work for the majority of people. The truth is that there is no one diet that works best for everyone. Each individual has unique dietary needs to help them reach their ideal weight. At Holistic Wellness, we work with individuals to figure out their specific nutritional needs to feel and look their best. These needs consider genetics, activity level, age, gender, and environment; there are so many factors that can play into a stagnation in weight loss:

  • not eating enough
  • eating too much
  • not eating the right amount of carbohydrates and protein based on your activity level
  • genetics
  • stress
  • sleep
  • and so many more!

 

We offer in-office nutritional counseling visits, meal planning packages, grocery store visits, and pantry clean outs, all of which target different areas of your nutrition to help you implement dietary changes that can help you, as an individual, reach optimal health.

22 Dec Acne & Food

faceAcne vulgaris is a chronic skin condition most common during adolescence that arises due to excess oil production from overactive oil glands in the skin. Genetics play a huge role in the development of acne vulgaris, but environmental factors most definitely contribute as well. Hormone imbalance, smoking, and diet can all contribute to the development of acne.

Skin health is incredibly important. Your skin is the largest organ of the body, and the condition of your skin is a strong indicator of your internal health. Healthy skin is vital for overall health and wellbeing.

Having solid nutrition can drastically improve your skin. Eating a low-sugar, anti-inflammatory diet can make a huge difference in how your skin looks and feels. Maintaining proper hydration is also critical for having good skin health – drinking lots of water, as well as avoiding dehydrating foods and beverages (such as coffee, alcohol, and sugar) will help make sure your skin cells are hydrated.

Using naturopathic principles – of which diet is a foundation – can be extremely beneficial for skin health without any of the toxic side effects from prescriptions and over-the-counter treatments.

Our nutritionist offers in-office nutritional counseling visits, meal planning packages, grocery store visits, and pantry clean outs, all of which target different areas of your nutrition to help you implement dietary changes that can help you, as an individual, reach optimal health.

02 Dec PCOS & Food


Screen Shot 2016-01-02 at 5.17.38 AMPolycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a frustrating condition with which many women struggle. PCOS can lead women to having trouble maintaining a healthy weight, as well as cause hormonal imbalances. Because of this, frequently, women with PCOS have thyroid problems and struggle with infertility. With PCOS often comes insulin resistance – part of the reason women will struggle to lose weight or stay at an ideal body weight.

Dietary strategies may help women combat the negative symptoms associated with PCOS.

  • Adopting a whole-foods based diet is one of the best steps you can take to supporting your body while struggling with PCOS.
  • A lower carbohydrate diet will likely help women lose weight and combat insulin resistance.
  • Women with PCOS often have hormonal imbalances, and dietary strategies can help to balance hormones.
  • If someone with PCOS is also experiencing thyroid problems, there are nutritional considerations to help support thyroid health as well.

we help women put these strategies into practice so that they can get back to feeling great and being energized throughout the day. We offer in-office nutritional counseling visits, meal planning packages, grocery store visits, and pantry clean outs, all of which target different aspects of your nutrition.

15 Nov A Nutritional Approach to Yeast / Candida

CandidaDealing with a vaginal yeast infection or candida overgrowth can be frustrating and debilitating. Yeast feeds off of sugar, so diet is directly related to overgrowth. Fortunately, diet changes can have a profound impact on the amount of yeast in your system. By following a particular nutritional protocol, you can starve the yeast and get rid of it and the unwanted symptoms that accompany it. We can provide a detailed nutrition plan that, if followed, causes the bacteria to die off and eventually become eliminated from your system altogether!

  • sugar plays a huge role in yeast and candida overgrowths, yet sugar lurks in foods that you would never guess!
  • many carbohydrates sources, even those from fruits and vegetables, can exacerbate yeast
  • alcohol can also feed yeast and bacteria
  • eating a higher fat and lower carbohydrate diet can help to starve the yeast in your system
  • it can takes weeks to months to overcome yeast overgrowths, so diligence is key in this process. Let us be your ally and teacher!

 

We offer in-office nutritional counseling visits, meal planning packages, grocery store visits, and pantry clean outs, all of which target different areas of your nutrition to help you implement dietary changes that can help you reach optimal health.
