5 Tips on Choosing a Nutritionist that is Right for You

 

 

Dietary advice may be plentiful, but good dietary advice can only be obtained from a professional nutritionist. Don’t be fooled by all of the advertisements that promise quick results, because most of the time you will just waste precious time and establish no healthy habits. You need a good nutritionist that understands your goals and is ready with the knowledge of how you will fulfil them. The only question is: how do you find a nutritionist like that. Here are a few tips to get you started: 

  • Consider your dietary and health needs first – before you even begin searching for a dietitian, you should consider your needs first. Is your primary goal losing weight? Do you have a medical condition that you want to manage? Are there any food sensitivities or allergies that you have to be careful with? There is a lot that nutritionists can help you with, and some of them have certain specialisations, which are better suited for your goals. Once you have considered your goal, it is time to look for an expert to get on your case. 

  • Check their credentials – nowadays everyone can claim they are an ‘expert’ on something, especially nutritional health and dieting. However, because of this reality, it is very important to make certain the expert you are consulting with is trained and has the knowledge in the field you are interested in. You should always check their credentials, see if they are members of a professional body and how much experience they have had with people like you. If possible, check for references and even ask some of their previous clients about their work process and results. 

  • What is their motivation for working with you? – there is no denying the bad reputation that some of the elements of the wellness industry have. Many of the so-called experts only want to sell their protein shakes, nutrition bars and other products with very little proven effect to the public. That is why you should always consider the business model of your nutritionist. If they are focused on selling you expensive products, maybe you are better off looking elsewhere. Avoid multi-level marketing schemes, because you may end up being provided with dietary products that don’t work. A reputable nutritionist will be more interested in providing you with good menu plans, and a list of whole foods and will take the time to understand your issues, like cravings, emotional eating, obesity, etc. In other words, they should be more of a coach than a marketer of questionable products. 

  • Check their experience – a good dietitian will be open and transparent about what they have to offer and what qualifications they have. You can tell a lot about them just by checking out their website or Linkedin profile. When it comes to nutrition, many things expand the knowledge of a professional in the field. Namely, you should be interested if they have a degree in health science or sport. 

  • Learn the difference between a nutritionist and a dietitian – on some levels, these are interchangeable words. However, there is sometimes a subtle difference. A nutritionist is someone who has a tertiary qualification and provides a range of services that all relate to nutrition. A dietitian delivers these same services, in addition to addressing certain medical conditions. They can even provide medical nutrition therapy if need be. 

Following all of these tips can help you find the best nutritionist for your needs and benefit from their services.

What is Integrative Medicine and What Do you Need to Know about It?

 

Integrative medicine is all about creating the best possible reality regarding wellness for those struggling with complex diseases and chronic conditions. 

As an approach to medicine, integrative medicine combines conventional medicine with its potential for surgery, use of medications and lifestyle changes along with complementary medicine, which involves therapies and treatments like yoga, meditation, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc. 

What sort of provider delivers integrative medicine?

Normally, an individual will work with a team of providers, and in rare cases an individual practitioner who has both the traditional medicine knowledge base and also uses complementary medicine. 

In regards to traditional western medicine, providers include individuals who have undergone formal medical training and have knowledge of conventional therapies. They practice evidence-based care. There are many options for experts who provide this sort of care: nurse practitioners, doctors of osteopathy, medical doctors, physician assistants, etc. 

In regards to complementary medicine, the experts can have a very diverse backgrounds. They may include board-certified practitioners who have gone through a series of exams, and other licensed therapists, like acupuncturists, massage therapists, doctors of naturopathic medicine and chiropractic practitioners. 

How does integrative medicine help an individual? 

Integrative medicine is all about utilising the strengths and effects of different techniques, to deliver that essential whole-person care. The goal is to always work on the mind, body and spirit with the aid of conventional medicine and complementary therapies. None of the complementary therapies replaces conventional treatments, however. Their goal is to further aid in the treatment of complications and symptoms of the condition. 

Who can rely on integrative medicine? 

A lot of individuals can benefit from integrative medicine. Mainly people with chronic (long-lasting) medical conditions or complex illnesses can be top recipients of the benefits this medical approach has to offer. The physical ailments that common users of integrative medicine are struggling with include cancer, asthma, diabetes, chronic pain, joint pain, nausea, sciatica, neck pain, irritable bowel syndrome, infertility, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, etc. There are also mental illnesses that one may wish to address with integrative medicine: insomnia, depression, addiction, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), etc. 

What sort of complementary therapies are usually recommended? 

The complementary therapies encompass a wide range of potential treatments and categories. Here are a few of the most popular ones: 

  • Natural remedies – the basis of this treatment involves the use of substances found in nature to help with nutrient levels. Diet therapy is a common example, which includes going on a specific diet. A doctor can also recommend herbal supplements derived from seeds, berries, flowers oils, roots, etc. 

  • Mind-body practices – these are practices that strengthen the connection between physical and mental dimensions of health. Common examples include hypnotherapy, meditation, biofeedback and yoga practices. All of them are aimed at providing better self-awareness and mindfulness to better deal with things like racing thoughts, anxiety and stress. 

  • Bodywork – these therapies are aimed at improving wellbeing and physical health. They include acupuncture, reflexology chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massage. 

What benefits does integrative medicine hold? 

The main benefit is that this approach to treatment unifies the disease-focused therapies of Western medicine with the healing potential of the complementary therapies described above. This approach can help people with complex illnesses and conditions achieve better appetite, peace of mind, pain relief, better sleep, better cognitive function, etc. 

Are there any downsides? 

The only potential downside to integrative medicine is that appointments will often include seeing more than one doctor, which means it takes special scheduling and timing.

5 Ways to Improve Your Heart Health according to Traditional Chinese Medicine

 

 

When it comes to traditional Chinese medicine, the heart is considered central to your body’s health. Ancient Chinese texts of the past, such as Huainanzi and Guanzi, Daoist classics, consider the heart “the ruler of the five organ networks”, also known as the “emperor of the human body”.

 

The Heart According to Traditional Chinese Medicine

 

The heart is known as one of the five Zang organs, together with the spleen, kidneys, lungs and liver. They are also known as the yin organs, as they produce, regulate and store the vital substances of the body, such as bodily fluids, blood and qi. The Zang organs are vital to the regulation of the body’s internal functions.

 

Each of the Zang organs is paired with a fu organ, also known as a yang organ. The yang organs include the small intestine, the gallbladder, stomach bladder and large intestine. They help you digest food, absorb its nutrients and get rid of bodily waste. The fu organs are busy with external functions.

 

If you keep your heart healthy, you can keep your body healthy as well. If you are taking good care of the organs that generate qi, then your heart will be protected and well-nourished.

 

How to Keep Your Heart Healthy

 

Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death all around the world. Some of the risk factors surrounding it include inactivity and an unhealthy diet, as well smoking or inadequate amounts of sleep and stress. Each of these risks can be addressed, according to traditional Chinese medicine. You can stay motivated by following the examples below:

 

  • The Risks of Inactivity

The solutions to this particular problem can be found with Tai Chi, Yoga or other activities that promote movement and flexibility. Set a regular schedule, stick to it and alternate activities together with friends or alone if need be.

 

  • The Risks of Unhealthy Diets

According to traditional Chinese medicine, red foods help strengthen the heart by making up for the loss of the yang from the body, the fire energy. Some of the red foods in question are cherries, tomatoes, red beans, apples, watermelon, strawberries, beef and more.

 

  • The Risks of Smoking

You should let people know you’re planning on quitting smoking, making it easier to stick to it by having people keeping you in check. YOu can also look for astragalus with your herbalist, which helps reduce the anxiety of quitting. If you feel withdrawal symptoms, you should look to friends and family for help. You can also join a support group for former smokers if you feel it’s necessary.

 

  • The Risks of Inadequate Sleep

Poor sleep is caused by imbalances in your yin and yang energies. Depending on your type of problem, your herbalist might give you a customized formula that works for your specific needs. You need to practice good sleeping habits, such as having a specific bedtime schedule, turning off your electronic devices before bed and making the room comfortable for sleep, among other things. You need a way to remind yourself to stick to that habit, so set alarms and stick to your schedule.

 

  • The Risks of Stress

You can find a solution by practising meditation, tai chi, qigong, whatever works to calm your nerves. Drinking calming teas recommended by your herbalist also helps, as well as practising deep breathing before stressful situations bring you down. You need to understand that stress is the body’s natural reflex to threats, real and perceived. Take a deep breath once the danger has passed and repeat a mantra that helps you shed the fear.
