Our nutrition program helps you understand how to eat healthier for your body type, physiology and goals. Certain diets can also support the healing of specific mental health issues such as anxiety, stress, or depression.
Many neurotransmitters are produced in the gut, so having a healthy gut and diet is important to the treatment and management of mental health issues. In addition, stress, energy, and mood can all be impacted by diet in significant ways, making a nutrition plan a key part of achieving optimal health and wellbeing.
It has been said that food is medicine, and while we may occasionally need treatment beyond food, it is true that we ingest food every day, and understanding how those nutrients are impacting your physical and mental function can be a game changer.
Our dietician, Adrien Paczosa, RD, is an expert at helping you achieve a healthy diet for your goals and body based on sound dietary science. We resist the urge to buy into the latest fad, and instead rely on tried and true principles of understanding biochemistry, physiology, macronutrients and body processes. That doesn’t mean we don’t embrace approaches like keto, health at every size, paleo, intuitive eating, or intermittent fasting, it just means we help you be smart about how you’re implementing those approaches in order to make consistent, sustainable gains to support your health.
When you meet with Adrien, she will assess your current eating habits and nutrition profile to determine if you’re getting enough of the right kinds of nutrients for your optimal well-being. You get to set your own goals, whether that be weight loss, healthier eating, more energy or strength, a better relationship with food, less body image issues, or eating to support specific diagnoses like depression and anxiety.
Working with a dietician supports your healing program and life goals by addressing physical and mental issues naturally with food, nutrients, and supplements, helping to get your body and mind working together for optimal living.
