Nutrition Q&A

What is nutrition?

Nutrition refers to the foods and beverages you consume and their effect on your health, energy levels, and overall quality of life. 

If you eat a healthy, balanced diet, your body gets the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it needs to thrive. If you eat a poor diet that contains high levels of sodium or saturated fats, you’re more likely to experience serious health problems, including high cholesterol, weight gain, and fatigue.

Nutrition provides a foundation for better living. If you want to lose weight and live a more active lifestyle, restore balance throughout your body, or fight back against chronic health problems, the team at Miami Center for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine can help.

How does Chinese medicine utilize nutrition?

Nutrition plays a central role in Chinese medicine. Sun Si-Miao, one of the greatest Chinese doctors of all time, believed that healthy dietary changes were crucial to an improved quality of life. 

At Miami Center for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, the team takes an integrative, holistic approach to nutrition treatment. They believe that the foods you eat and the beverages you drink affect everything from your energy levels to your quality of sleep. 

After you chew and swallow, food makes its way to your stomach, where it breaks down and enters your bloodstream. If you eat a healthy diet, those foods contain vitamins and minerals that help power your body. If you eat an unhealthy diet, toxins can build up in your muscles and organs, negatively affecting your health.

The team at Miami Center for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine develops custom nutrition plans that align with each individual’s health history and goals for treatment.

Am I a good candidate for nutrition counseling?

Anyone who wants to live a healthier lifestyle can benefit from nutrition counseling. At Miami Center for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, the team works with men and women who want to lose weight, balance their digestion, and speed up their metabolism.

The team also provides nutrition counseling to manage chronic conditions like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Participating in nutrition counseling can also limit the negative effects of the natural aging process, including hormonal imbalance, hot flashes, and low libido.
