There are many misconceptions about diet and exercise. As a chiropractor I have seen people unnecessarily beat themselves up for gaining weight or getting out of shape. Many of today’s health problems have direct correlations with poor nutrition and diet. This means that many diseases and conditions can be treated by implementing proper nutrition, diet and exercise programs. Nutrition Coaching
Try comparing your nutrition program to an exercise program. How many times have you observed people working out in the gym doing exercises incorrectly? It is usually for one of two reasons. The first is that they simply do not know how to do the exercises correctly. The second can be the result of closed mindedness. They may not be open to learning how to help themselves by taking the advice of others.
These two reasons can also stop you from realizing your true health potential. To implement a proper diet and nutrition program, you need a personal nutrition trainer. Hiring a nutrition coach that uses nutrition response testing enables a diet and nutrition program to be customized just for your needs. Imagine working out as hard as you can at the gym. If you are doing the exercises incorrectly, you are actually working against your goals. If you have a condition that is affected by nutrition, it may be increasing in severity with every day that continues untreated.
It is also important to keep an open mind. If you are not open to learning new ways of doing things, than how can you learn? Often people need to expand their thinking and allow others to helps them. This includes trying new techniques such as nutrition response technique. That is what a nutrition coach can due for you.
Nutrition response testing is a technique that allows the doctor to determine the precise nutrients that you require and the proper amounts to take. A comprehensive exam, questionnaire and reflex testing are used to eliminate the guesswork of which and how often to take nutritional supplements. Healthcare works best with a team approach that utilizes shared responsibility between the patient and the doctor.
