When you have diabetes, diet is incredibly important to maintaining healthy blood sugar levels, controlling symptoms, and reducing your risk of complications. Therapeutic nutrition offers you the support you need in putting together an eating plan.
What you eat literally controls almost every function of your body and mind. Food connects us to one another and to our bodies. Food can reinvigorate our health, bring families together, restore vibrant communities, improve the economy and the environment, reduce pollution, and help our children get better grades.
In other words, food is powerful medicine. It is information. What we eat can have a profound effect on our lives. At the same time, what we eat is only one “ingredient” needed to make a healthy human.
You see, we need real, whole, fresh food, but we also need things like movement, connection, meaning, and purpose to create balance.Your body knows how to create health from those ingredients.
The New Year is a great opportunity to reflect on your growth of the previous year. It’s a good time to review what you’ve learned and how you’ve grown through the inevitable challenges life presents, then set your intentions for the next chapter.
By setting intentions and keeping them close, we can facilitate the path that we choose. Setting intentions directs the mind and gives us purpose. Focusing on your heart and what’s important to you creates clarity and self-discovery.
