It was the great Hippocrates who first said Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food, and this could not be more true today with the world we live in. The food industry has made several great advances in the last century but with those advances have also come great problems. Having food widely available at any moment seems great in theory until you start to take a closer look at the common foods purchased. In the last few years there have been several studies proving the connection between the health of your mouth and your overall health. We see this new knowledge as a great opportunity to better serve our patients and are now proud to offer nutritional counseling to our patients. Nutritional counseling is individualized and customizable to each patient and allows us to provide our patients with exceptional care.
Inflammation has been shown to be responsible for a wide variety of health symptoms and is related to numerous diseases. As dental care providers we have been tracking and treating inflammation in the mouth for years but now we can use nutritional counseling as an additional tool to provide our patients not only with healthy smiles but tools to live a healthy life.
If you are wondering if you could benefit from nutritional counseling, ask yourself how you feel on a daily basis. Do you have aches and pains, headaches, stomach issues, wake up feeling tired, or have afternoon crashes? Any of these symptoms can relate to food intolerances and with the proper guidance we can assist you into feeling better. Don’t hesitate to make your health a priority give our office a call today to set up an appointment. We are excited to begin this journey to exceptional health and wellness.
