What is nutrition?
Nutrition refers to the nutrient contents in the foods you eat. This includes macronutrients like carbohydrates, protein, and fat, as well as micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
Your body needs certain amounts of each nutrient to function the best it possibly can. Being deficient in a certain nutrient or more than one can lead to widespread symptoms that are challenging to diagnose without blood tests.
Heaven & Earth Acupuncture offers nutrition services so you can re-evaluate your diet and include more nutritious foods in your meal planning. The team can also direct you to supplements that can make up for a lack of any nutrients in your diet or trouble absorbing them.
What are some symptoms of nutrient deficiencies?
The symptoms of nutrient deficiencies are ambiguous. In fact, you might at first just think they’re regular fluctuations in your well-being or that you’re simply hungry or need more sleep.
You might benefit from nutrition counseling at Heaven & Earth Acupuncture if you have a chronic condition, have a nutrient deficiency, have a digestive disorder, or are just interested in optimizing your wellness on your own accord. These symptoms may indicate a nutrient deficiency of some sort:
- Hair loss
- Heart palpitations
- Bone pain
- Mood fluctuations
- Muscle weakness
- Cold hands and feet
- Brittle hair and nails
It’s important to undergo tests to rule out possible causes of these symptoms and assess your nutrient levels. The team at Heaven & Earth Acupuncture performs an evaluation to discover if you have any nutrient deficiencies that need to be addressed.
How can I improve my nutrition?
The team at Heaven & Earth Acupunctures can create an individualized nutrition plan for you that gets you the nutrients you need for better functioning and wellness. They can account for any special diets, allergies, and sensitivities while forming your plan.
Your first visit includes a comprehensive assessment of your overall health that can highlight areas needing improvement. The team might ask you to keep a journal of the foods you eat or describe your current diet and supplement use.
You’ll receive customized nutritional planning and advice as well as recommendations for supplements to take if you need them.
