How Does Nutritional Counseling Apply To My Mental Health?

One in five adults in the United States will experience a mental illness this year. That is 46.6 million Americans. In the fast paced world we live in today, we don’t have much time to think about every meal we eat or don’t eat. That’s why Makin Wellness has dedicated a portion of our counseling and therapies to nutrition. Our complex human bodies are machines that demand certain nutrients and in order to function properly, we must follow the specific directions set forth by our biology.

Whether you are trying to lose weight, plan family meals, or maintain a healthier lifestyle, your nutrition is a main component. But nutrition is more than just that. It plays a major role in mental well being also. Makin Wellness specializes in nutritional counseling for adults, children, and families. An unchecked diet is easily unnoticed and our bodies will find ways to regulate which leaves the doors open to issues such as:

  • Weight problems
  • Digestive issues
  • Decreased focus
  • Fatigue

With all of these, and other issues associated with a diet less maintained, comes the mental frustrations they pair with including:

  • Short temper
  • Lowered Self-Worth
  • Emotional transference

Nutrition can be linked to numerous mental illnesses such as:

“I really enjoy working with Laura on my nutritional and health goals. She’s very knowledgeable and professional. She has helped me so much. I really liked how balanced she is about what foods to eat. I used to feel bad about eating carbs but she has helped me realize that not all carbs are bad and actually they can be beneficial. I definitely have more energy following her food plan. She never makes you feel bad when you do give into foods you shouldn’t eat. Her protocol is easy to follow. I like how she recommends supplements to take, which is very helpful in boosting my mood and helping with SIBO. Laura has also made me essential oil blends to help with sleep and anxiety. Again that’s another helpful tool. Thanks Laura! You’re awesome! ”
