What is wellness?

Wellness means something different to everyone. In general, this term relates to your optimal health and fitness. 

Physical wellness

  • Strength

Equally important, mental wellness relates to happiness, contentment, and concentration. 

Mental wellness also relates to cognitive functioning or the way your brain works to help you carry out regular functions and relate to the world around you.

What is a nutritionist?

A nutritionist is a person who specializes in food and how it relates to health, disease, and quality of life. At Synergy Physicians, you can visit an onsite nutritionist who offers nutritional counseling, meal planning, and wellness programs. 

Nutritional counseling and diet plans help you in a number of ways. Not only can healthy eating help you lose weight, but it also helps your mental and emotional health. 

It can also help you control health issues like:

  • Food sensitivities
  • Effects of chemotherapy
  • Diabetes
  • Blood pressure

When you meet with a nutritionist, you can discuss your personal goals and health issues.

How does nutrition play a role in my overall wellness?

Your body needs six main nutrients to function, which you gain mostly by eating foods rich in them. They play different roles, like giving you energy, boosting your immune system, improving your memory, and protecting your heart. These nutrients are:

  • Carbohydrates
  • Fat
  • Fiber
  • Minerals
  • Protein
  • Water

Your body also requires smaller doses of other naturally occurring nutrients, such as: 

  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium 

The best way to fuel your body is by eating healthy, unprocessed, nutrient-rich foods. Examples of nutrient-dense foods include: 

  • Eggs
  • Salmon 
  • Kale
  • Garlic
  • Seaweed
  • Shellfish
  • Potatoes
  • Liver
  • Blueberries
  • Dark chocolate
  • Deeply colored vegetables

It’s important that you consume these foods in a healthy way, so make sure to discuss with your nutritionist the best times to eat and ways to prepare these foods.
