Top 5 Benefits of Investing in Nutritional Therapy, North Hempstead, New York

Poor nutrition impacts health, potentially contributing to the development or worsening of chronic diseases. Nutritional therapy, along with stress management and better lifestyle choices can prevent, treat, or minimize symptoms of many conditions and is integral to regenerative medicine. The Integrative Medicine of New York, PLLC, serving Long Island, New York City, and the Tri-State Area, discusses some of the advantages of this approach.

Why Choose Nutritional Therapy?

1. Customizable

There is no one-size-fits-all diet or eating plan. Nutritional therapy tailors basic practices to your specific needs and goals. For instance, if you are intolerant to certain ingredients, a gluten- or dairy-free approach may be right for you. The idea is to start with a plant-based diet based on organic fruits and vegetables. Choices about animal products, grains, sugars, and carbohydrates, as well as how food should be cooked and prepared, are then explored on a case-by-case basis.

2. DIY at Home

Regenerative medicineAfter initial assistance from a regenerative medicine professional, nutritional therapy can be done from the comfort of your home. You do not have to stay in a spa or hospital to implement dietary changes. There are also plenty of resources, such as books, videos, programs, and integrative medical centers to help you get started.

3. Immune Support

Regenerative medicine focuses on building a healthy immune system, and proper nutrition supports that by decreasing inflammation and strengthening the body’s defense mechanisms. Vitamins A, C, and E, for instance, strengthen various tissues and organs and boost the production of white blood cells. Protein is a basic building block of tissues and organs, such as the liver and spleen, which play a vital role in detoxifying the body.

4. Improve Gut Health

When the digestive system isn’t functioning properly, the body can’t absorb and benefit from the nutrients you consume. Probiotics, alkaline foods, and nutrient-dense, non-processed items improve the health of your gut and boost your energy, enhancing cognitive abilities as well as overall wellness and immunity.

5. Maintain Healthy Weight
