Common health conditions that benefit from S.N.A.C.K.S. Nutrition:
Weight Loss: Excess weight is often due to an imbalance of hormones, a stressed and inflamed immune system, and a compromised liver. Moderating exercise while focusing on providing nutrient-rich foods and supplements to support weakened organs will result in a successful restoration of health, including reaching a healthy weight.
Metabolic syndrome / pre-diabetes: These conditions are wake-up calls to some people who do not want to develop diabetes or have a heart attack or stroke. Often the people with these conditions are prescribed by their doctor(s) one medication for high blood pressure, another one for high cholesterol, one for high blood sugar, and are put on a restrictive, low-calorie diet. Holistic nutrition approaches these lifestyle conditions in a more health-promoting manner by focusing on providing all of the nutrients the body needs to restore functionality and eliminate lifestyle factors that are contributing to the health concerns.
Depression / apathy: Nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, and food allergies are often associated with depression. Supportive supplementation, dietary modifications, and an exercise routine will help to create psychological stabilization.
Food Allergies: Unknown food allergies can be directly and indirectly associated with other health concerns such as headaches, sinusitis, gastrointestinal distress, fatigue, increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut), systemic inflammation, high cholesterol, arthritis and depression. Autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s or Rheumatiod Arthritis also often occur in individuals with food allergies.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): Assessing digestive function, food sensitivities, and possible fungal/parasitic/bacterial infections are very important with IBS. Often dysbiosis (an imbalance of intestinal flora) is associated with IBS. Correcting the cause of the dysbiosis, supporting with probiotics and gastrointestinal lining supportive nutrients will relieve symptoms.
Arthritis: Exercise additions/modifications, food sensitivity testing, and improved digestive function can often relieve arthritis. Nutrients to rebuild cartilage, a metabolic cleansing regimen, and an alkalizing diet to remove calcium build-up in joints will be addressed by the holistic nutrition approach.
