Why should I be concerned about my nutrition?

You are a direct product of the food you eat. When you focus on good nutrition, your internal organs function properly, your cells thrive, and your outward appearance looks vibrant, including your hair and skin.

What you eat directly affects your health status and your weight. You benefit from knowing how to get the right balance of vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, micronutrients, carbohydrates, and protein.

With proper nutrition, you can promote a disease-free life and ensure robust energy levels.

What is nutrition counseling?

Nutrition counseling helps you make better decisions about what to eat and how to boost your health. Dr. Rich-Mazzeo may ask you to keep a food log to see what your diet looks like now and to help her determine how you can make changes to improve your health.

She may also run blood work and other tests to assess where you may be deficient in specific nutrients so she can better coach you on dietary changes and supplements. You’ll learn how certain foods and nutrients affect your digestive health and sense of wellness.

Dr. Rich-Mazzeo also considers any chronic conditions you may have when providing nutrition counseling. Her recommendations can help ease symptoms and, in some cases, reverse disease altogether.

How can nutrition counseling help my health?

Nutrition counseling helps you learn which foods and supplements support better body function, energy, and immunity. Dr. Rich-Mazzeo and her team can help you identify any food intolerances or allergies that are negatively affecting your quality of life. She can teach you how to read labels to avoid these foods in the future.

Additional issues that nutrition counseling at Alma Vida can help with include:

  • Weight loss or maintenance
  • High cholesterol, high blood pressure, or high glucose levels
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Arthritis symptoms
  • Cardiovascular disease

In many cases, good nutrition can help you reach your health goals. Our goal is to help you rely less, or not at all, on medications for symptom management.
