Nutritional Counseling Q&A

What is nutritional counseling?

Nutritional counseling is a service available at P3, and it’s one of the simplest and most natural ways to improve your wellness. You might not think much about the foods you eat, but they can have more of an impact than you might expect on how you feel and function. 

You learn more about the micro and macronutrients that your body needs and their individual benefits. The experts at P3 analyze your current dietary habits and account for other components influencing your nutrition, like the amount of exercise you get and any health conditions affecting you. 

Then, your clinician builds a personalized plan around your health goals. You come in for regular follow-up visits and assessments. With the results of your assessments, you see real-time improvements in your body functions and measurable nutrient levels. 

When should I consider nutritional counseling?

Nutritional counseling can improve your health and well-being at any age. Even if you try your best to eat healthy foods and exercise on your own time, it’s possible you’re not meeting your body’s requirements. You should consider coming in for a nutritional counseling consultation if you have:

  • Questions or uncertainties about your diet
  • Prediabetes or diabetes
  • Digestive issues
  • Unusual or poor eating patterns
  • Obesity
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Food allergies or dietary restrictions
  • Cancer
  • Nutrient deficiencies

Even if you’re perfectly healthy, you can benefit from increasing your understanding of nutrition through nutritional counseling. 

What are the benefits of improving my nutrition?

Nutritional counseling focuses on the foundation of your well-being — meeting your body’s needs. A few of the many benefits you might experience with nutritional counseling at P3 are:

Lower inflammation

Inflammation is the natural result of immune responses throughout your body. Chronic inflammation, however, is often a sign of immune dysfunction and can cause permanent damage to your DNA. 

It can even increase your risk of cancer. By working with a nutritionist, you can lower your levels of inflammation. 

Hormone balancing

Your hormones influence every process that takes place naturally in your body. Your nutrition influences those hormones, and when you’re not getting the nutrients you need, a hormone imbalance can result. Balancing your hormones can improve your mood, energy, metabolism, and fertility. 

Weight management

Whether you’re overweight or underweight, a tailored nutrition plan from a nutritionist or dietician can help you return to a healthy weight range.
