The age-old phrase, “You are what you eat,” is a wise one. Of course, the health challenges we face have many causes, but chief among them is diet and eating disorders. That’s why nutritional education and one-on-one counseling with our certified clinical nutritionist is an integral part of our rehab. Who could benefit from this holistic therapy? Perhaps the question should really be, who couldn’t?
America has the dubious distinction of being the fattest country in the world. Two-thirds of us are overweight and one-third are clinically obese. Poor diet is a primary contributor to our epidemic of obesity—and the surest solution to weight loss is to correct dietary indiscretions and incorporate regular exercise into the equation. A significant percent of overweight people have diabetes, and unless they can get a handle on their weight, millions more are heading toward this degenerative condition. The good news is, most of our patients have been able to control their weight and their blood sugar at our luxury rehab, without drugs, simply by changing their diet and exercising regularly.
There is no question that a poor diet increases the risk and severity of cardiovascular and that dietary changes can reverse disease markers such as high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. It has also been clearly established that diet plays a role in cancer digestive disorders, and many other diseases. No matter what your health concern, our center has the nutritional education programs and personalized counseling you need. The Holistic Sanctuary is a significant step for anyone toward optimal health.
