Dietitians at Mind Body Health use an evidence-based approach in order to assess the multi-faceted reasons that clients are experiencing nutritional concerns. Beyond knowing what one ‘needs’ to it, there are several factors that affect an individual’s relationship with food and how the body responds to what is ingested.
Given that there is a large amount of nutrition information that is so easily accessible to the public, it is difficult to understand and implement what we may perceive as an ideal eating approach. Dietitians at Mind Body and Health assess a client’s relationship with food from a physical, psychological, emotional, medical and social perspective. Despite popular belief, one recommendation is not the best fit for everyone.
Whether you have been fighting with your weight, have struggled with an eating disorder or simply feel confused about the abundance of nutrition information that is available, meeting with a dietitian may be helpful. Our dietitians will provide you with scientific evidence, psycho-education and nutrition knowledge that will help you understand where your relationship with food stems from. Through the application of mindful eating and intuitive eating principles, the goal of the dietitian is to reconnect you with your body, make peace with food and challenge the food rules and judgments that you have developed over time.
If you are someone who has been diagnosed with a medical condition and need medical nutrition therapy, our dietitians also have experience working with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diabetes, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and high blood pressure.
The goal of nutrition therapy is not to teach you about good and bad foods and tell you what you can and can’t eat. It’s about imparting knowledge and skills that you can maintain long term in order to develop a positive relationship with food and your body.
