Good nutrition is important for many different reasons. Not only can good nutrition help you maintain a healthy weight, but it can also help to prevent various health problems, such as type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, and heart disease. If you already have one of these illnesses, good nutrition may even help you reverse the course of the disease or stop it from getting any worse.
Some of the benefits of improved nutrition include:
Many patients simply don’t know how to eat healthy. Western society often works against a healthy lifestyle, leading patients to consume processed foods and excess sugar. Dr. Paul Grewal and Dr. Sowa can help you understand what good nutrition means and make the right choices on a daily basis.
If you come to MyMD Medical Group for nutritional counseling, Dr. Paul Grewal or Dr. Sowa will begin by performing a thorough physical exam and evaluating your current diet.
They will then help you develop a plan to improve your nutrition by eating the right foods each day.
If you’re struggling with an addiction to sugar — a common problem in the United States — they will help you overcome it.
In addition to helping you plan meals and improve your diet, Dr. Paul Grewal and Dr. Sowa will also discuss other aspects of your lifestyle. For example, they may discuss your sleep habits and make recommendations for improving them. They may also recommend reducing stress or adopting an exercise program.
All of these changes are designed to help you on your journey to better health.
