Better Health through Nutrition

 

Today, chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease have become so common that most people don’t remember what it’s like to be in excellent health. And if they’re not feeling their best, they can’t be their best.

In truth, many chronic health conditions are preventable. They’re the result of years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, and prolonged exposure to stress. And leading health organizations now tell us that by returning to a healthier lifestyle — by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to better manage the stressors in life — many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed.

The solution seems so simple, and yet, the incidence of chronic illness is continuing to rise at an alarming rate.

 

 

:: Addressing Chronic Illness with Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes

The groundbreaking Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC) programs we use at Wellness Springs  have helped tens of thousands of chronic illness sufferers all over the world regain their health — so they can once again enjoy their lives to the fullest. These are not quick, short term fixes.  Instead, these programs work because they’re focused on helping people develop healthy, life-long habits that they can easily incorporate into their busy schedules. Our TLC programs tailor a regimen that’s unique to each individual’s needs.

 

:: Philosophy/Overview of Services

Our goal is to help you understand the benefits and dangers of food.  Although the most common reason to go to a nutritionist is for weight loss, better food choices can help prevent chronic diseases, certain cancers and alleviate many chronic symptoms. We take the time to understand your behaviors and background and work together to help you create a healthier lifestyle.  We help educate and motivate you.  Understanding the basics can go a long way.  One of our simple goals is to teach you to eat more mindfully and to stop mindless eating.   Forget the word diet and rather learn the words behavior modifications.  Our programs will change the way you view food.
