How Nutritional Counselling Can Help You

Nutrition has the ability to impact our health, activity levels, confidence, and overall that feeling of well-being.  While many people have some nutritional knowledge, most times it is based on current trends sourced from the media and anecdotal evidence from friends and family.  Having a trusted medical professional with whom you can review your nutritional history, goals, and areas of improvement free from judgement can provide you with a solid foundation from which to act upon to put your plan into action.  A busy life does not have to interfere with your ability to receive optimal nutrition through strategic implementation of a balanced whole foods diet.

Ask your dentist about nutritional counselling.  Discussing your nutritional goals with your dentist can provide a number of insights into:

  • Daily eating patterns
  • Nutritional habits
  • Identify your macronutrient breakdown
  • Identify areas of nutritional deficiencies
  • Identify and understand which foods are contributing to your dental issues
  • Identify short term and long term goals
  • Understand portion control
  • Weight management
  • Improved mental clarity and performance
  • Improved activity levels

We will work together to review your medical history and contributing lifestyle information paired with a dietary record to provide a nutritional analysis. We will identify areas of strengths and weaknesses and implement goals and nutritional strategies that you can apply to your daily life.  We then follow-up with you throughout the process to ensure you are making progress that is in line with your goals, and help you keep motivated in the implementation of your nutritional strategy.
