Functional Medicine Nutrition Counseling For Montana
The nCenter has a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist that provides functional medicine nutrition counseling services. These counseling services are offered online for Montana’s residents. Our functional medicine nutrition practitioner is here to educate and support clients with a variety of nutrition-related and mental health-related health concerns.
What is Nutrition and Nutrition Counseling?
Nutrition Counseling is defined here as “a process developed by a specially trained health professional to help individuals make healthy food and supplement choices and form healthy eating habits and better overall health.” Because our nutritionist is a functional medicine nutritionist, she also considers every client’s mental health along with their physical health. Nutrition can impact anxiety, depression, focus and sleep, and the gut/brain connection is real. When the gut is healthy the brain is healthy.
Nutrition is defined as the study of the foods we take in and how that food is utilized for our overall well-being. Functional medicine nutritional counseling takes that knowledge and tailors it to your individual nutritional counseling needs for both your mental health and your physical health.
Why Nutrition Counseling Services?
Functional medicine nutrition counseling is a personalized approach to maintaining a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Nutritional imbalances are a leading cause of the obesity epidemic exploding throughout Montana and many countries of the world today. Nutrition counseling services can help you make healthier choices about what to put in your body.
Towns in Montana often provide poor food choices and a lack of understanding of what the body needs (and what it needs to avoid) to their community members. Busy Montanans may rely on junk food, fast food, and easy-to-prepare processed products to help them keep up with their crazy schedules. Sadly this has a downside, because these foods harm overall health, productivity, and wellness—both physical and mental. Our Montana based functional medicine nutrition counseling services can help determine what is best for you. Can’t access Montana-based nutritional counseling services at a clinic near you? No problem. We are proud to offer convenient online functional medicine counseling services.
Not maintaining a nutritionally balanced lifestyle can lead Montanans to Obesity and raised BMI (Body Mass Index). Obesity and a raised BMI are major risk factors for diseases such as:
- Heart disease and stroke, the leading causes of death in 2017
- Joint pain and joint damage from excess weight bearing
- Some cancers (including endometrial, breast, ovarian, prostate, liver, gallbladder, kidney, and colon)
- Hormonal imbalances
- Food allergies
- Digestive disorders including Irritable Bowel Syndrome
The more highly-processed foods you eat, the more likely you are to gain weight and the more challenging it becomes to lose those extra pounds. Functional medicine nutrition counseling can help you understand your mind and body’s needs so you can live a healthier, happier life in Montana.
