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.
