3 Reasons to see a Registered Dietitian in 2023
You're unsure of what to eat because many foods don't make you 'feel good'.
Most people have 'trigger' foods, have you identified yours? If there are certain foods that cause you bloating, gas, loose stools, headaches, fatigue, skin rashes, acne, joint pain etc., you might have developed a food sensitivity which is more common than you might think. Food sensitivities can appear due to a "leaky" or compromised gut lining and can virtually be ANY food. What causes a "leaky" gut? Unfortunately, LIFE.. Poor diet, lack of physical activity, high stress, medications, toxins from our food, air, water, cosmetics, cleaning products, and more! But the good news is, food sensitivities are not like food allergies, you don't have to avoid them forever. You just need to work with a practitioner who can help you identify those food triggers and strengthen your gut lining through a personalized elimination diet (following a re-introduction phase), supplementation, and lifestyle changes!
You're sick of feeling "foggy", fatigue, and unmotivated.
If you're always feeling "foggy", reliant on caffeine, and have constant low energy, you might have some imbalances going on. Could it be a hormone imbalance? Thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, insulin, and cortisol to name a few.
Signs and symptoms
Weight loss resistance despite healthy diet and exercise, chronic fatigue, unbearable PMS, abnormal hair growth, dry hair and skin, imbalanced blood sugar, low libido, extra weight around mid section, chronic acne, extreme sugar and salt cravings, chronic constipation, and more.
Could it be a gut imbalance?
When there are more "bad" bacteria in your gut in relation to "good", it not only causes trouble with your digestion, but also with your brain/mental health. The gut and brain are connected through the longest nerve in the body, the vagus nerve. So what affects the gut will in fact affect the brain. Hormonal and gut imbalances need to be identified first before being treated with diet, lifestyle, and supplementation.
You want to feel more comfortable in your skin but you don't know where to start.
Whether you are looking for 'Nutrition Basics' or dealing with a chronic health condition, a dietitian can help. Think about how many foods and beverages you consume in a day.. are the foods you're consuming fueling and nourishing your body? Or do they contain unhealthy ingredients and additives that are negatively affecting your health? Tidying up your diet and truly understanding why certain foods and ingredients are unhealthy is vital! Because the foods we consume (or do not consume) daily is a major determinate of our health and wellness during our lifetime. Not to mention a 'healthy food' for one person can be unhealthy for another. Food preferences, allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities need to be taken into consideration. So, don't settle for a cookie cutter diet on the internet when you can receive a personalized nutrition care plan from a licensed professional.
Are you ready to become the healthiest version of yourself?
"Yen has been an amazing help in getting me to the place I’ve tried to get to for years and really understanding my body. My appointments with her were more thorough than any other doctor or specialist I’ve ever seen before. It’s very rare for a doctor to spend over an hour with you, going over your entire lifestyle and history in order to make a perfectly catered action plan for your goals. Yen has listened to me like a therapist while providing such knowledgeable input that I really have never experienced elsewhere. And an extra plus - all of our communication was through an app and she was able to do virtual appointments!"
