Everyone wants to be healthy but living a healthy lifestyle and realizing your diet and lifestyle goals do not just happen overnight. Most of the time, once we’ve decided we want to make a change – we make a ton of extreme changes all at once without much of a support system in place and it’s not sustainable. Health and wellness can be achieved and maintained but the most effective way to do so is through various small and big lifestyle and diet changes, along with a good support system. Though there are many fad diets and healthy lifestyle trends, working with a naturopathic practitioner can be a total game changer for those that want to make permanent healthy changes.
A healthy lifestyle is about much more than weight, but we cannot deny that weight and nutrition are vital components. At Health for Life ND, our practitioners take time to counsel and educate patients on food as medicine, proper nutrition that fuels a healthy mind and body, food allergies and sensitivities, and the unique components of your health so you can understand how these things work synergistically together. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle if your nutrition is not in alignment which is why having a plan tailored to your unique needs and health goals can make all the difference.
Our practitioners will help you create a customized dietary plan and if you have specific weight loss goals, we also use a program called First Line Therapy™. First Line Therapy™ takes the guesswork and unsustainable methods out of weight loss with its methodical and natural approach to achieving the balanced and healthy lifestyle you want. The program promotes eating whole foods with an emphasis on moderate proteins and fats along with low glycemic carbohydrates. Additionally, it helps you build important healthy habits that also support weight loss including exercise, optimal sleep, high-quality nutritional supplementation, and stress management techniques. These habits will help you both achieve and maintain your weight loss and healthy lifestyle goals.
In addition to nutrition, the other important component of the health and wellness you desire is an active lifestyle. An active lifestyle can look different for different people depending on what they enjoy and will actually want to do. An active lifestyle may include yoga, running, hiking, strength training, swimming, walking, or many other things that help you move your body. Let us help you achieve and maintain your health and wellness goals so that you can live your best life.
