“If diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. If diet is right, medicine is of no need.”
Amy holds a bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Science with a focus in holistic nutrition. Since obtaining her degree, Amy is counseling people in making nutritional changes through various stages of their lives. Much of Amy’s focus and dedication the past two years has been spent working with those who wish to start a family, who are choosing to expand their family, as well as with women who are pregnant, who are post-partum, and who are breast-feeding. A nutritious lifestyle is advantageous especially during these particular stages of life.
Amy is passionate about using education and counseling to help individuals make and implement changes to their diet and ultimately their lifestyle. She recognizes that each individual has unique needs; there is not one particular protocol or “set of rules” that will work for everyone. Using fresh, whole foods to obtain vital nutrients, Amy will partner with you to ensure your nutritional choices help you achieve your desired level of wellness.
Our diet and nutrition program at Care Wellness Center offers the scientific application of nutritional principles based upon complete knowledge of the individual. Great care is taken to examine all aspects of lifestyle which affect health including diet, supplementation, exercise, and physiological/psychological factors.
In a private office setting we are able to provide care which is both personal and accessible. We customize and tailor weight loss diets that help you lose weight fast.
The Link Between Diet and Disease
The information available in recent years regarding the relationship between diet and disease has affected the nutritional trends of the American consumer, especially since this relationship concerns the incidence of common chronic and deadly diseases. Currently, cardiovascular disease, cancer and obesity rank as major health problems facing our society.
Studies conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics reveal that significant portions of the American population, including children, are overweight. Epidemiological studies also indicate that being overweight, even slightly, increases the risk of developing hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. With the facts so apparent, it is not surprising to find that interest in the prevention and treatment of these conditions with alternative methods is on the rise.
Nutritional management is the science of applying diet and supplementation toward attaining optimal health. Most common health problems are created by an imbalance within the body. When blood chemistry is viewed from an optimal perspective, problem areas can be detected and the proper steps taken to correct the underlying imbalance. Once normalized, the body can then return to a state of improved health. Nutritional management has had success with the following conditions:
- Heart Problems/High Cholesterol
- Natural Weight (Fat) loss
- Chronic Fatigue/Low Energy
- PMS Circulatory Problems
- Irritable Bowel & Colitis
- High Blood Pressure
- Yeast Infections
- Prostate Trouble
- Sports Nutrition/Endurance Enhancement
