Nutritional Counseling Q & A

Why is optimal nutritional intake so important?

The food you eat feeds your internal organs and drives their proper function. Nutrition also directly affects the health of your hair, skin, bones, and cells of every organ system in your body. Nutritious foods contain vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates, healthy fats, and antioxidants that boost your body’s function.

What you eat directly affects your weight and your health status. The right diet can promote a disease-free life and ensure quality energy.

What is nutrition counseling?

The team offers nutrition counseling to help optimize your diet and boost your health. They may request you keep a food log to see what you’re eating now and where you can make changes to improve your health. They also evaluate your symptoms and can run blood work and other tests to determine where you may be deficient in certain nutrients and how these deficiencies affect your well-being.

When making recommendations, the team takes into account any chronic conditions you have as well as your schedule and personal preferences.

What types of health concerns can be addressed with nutrition counseling?

Through nutrition counseling, you’re able to learn what foods and supplements support better body function, immunity, and energy. The team can help you if you suspect you have food sensitivities by identifying symptoms associated with these intolerances and teaching you how to avoid the offending foods.

Other issues that nutrition counseling can address include:

  • Weight issues
  • High cholesterol
  • Cardiovascular disease

The team at The Miami Center for Holistic Healing helps you achieve your health goals with nutrition rather than by relying only on medications.

What supplements are available?

Knowing what supplements to take and which offerings are most reputable can be challenging. As a part of this functional medicine practice, Dr. Eklund offers a variety of nutritional supplements, including the well-respected XYMOGENⓇ products and Ortho Molecular ProductsⓇ. She has actually been a member of XYMOGEN’s Medical Board of Advisors, and as part of that group has offered input in designing the nutritional formulas.
