Our body is made up of 100 trillion cells and relies on us to deliver proper nutrients to the cells and allow the waste products to be released. A hefty order! Without all of the proper nutrients, our cells cannot function optimally, and this can result in a compromise of tissue and organ function. If the toxins and waste products do not leave our bodies efficiently, our overall health and energy will be compromised. At the Santa Monica Wellness Center, we have a passion for good food and nutrition, not fad diets!
Our nutritional counseling does not consist of giving you a diet to follow. It is about finding out what your lifestyle and health concerns are and educating you about food choices that are reasonable for you. It is about finding out what is realistic for your lifestyle. For example, if you aren't able to cook at home, we need to help you find the best ways to eat out or at your office. It is about being realistic, setting reasonable goals to help to you achieve your nutritional goals. Good nutrition is not a diet that you are doomed to go off of, it is a delicious lifestyle that can be enjoyed guilt free.
