In the case of many of the functional diseases, nutrition and diet therapy plays an important role to set a path to recovery.
For example, what you eat can affect the speed of your body’s healing and can also impact on inflammation in the body, which contributes to some types of chronic pain conditions.
A dietitian can help you optimize your diet to help you build a lifestyle you enjoy. When making changes to your eating, you likely need to try out some different approaches for several weeks to start feeling the changes. An expert can help you with this process.
1. Find a Trained Professional
All of the research on the diet and nutritional therapy indicates that best results are possible when you get support from a qualified dietary professional who is well-versed in the diet.
2. Gather Your Resources and start a food diary
Start to keep track of everything eaten, the timing interval of the eating hours.
3. Notice patterns
Are there times of the day when you feel your best and other times when you get a little hangry? The types of foods, timing and the amount may play a role!
4. Start making small changes
Little changes add up over time. There’s no one-size-fits-all diet that works for everyone. A dietitian can help you gain the skills to make changes that work for you. The important thing is to choose behaviour changes that you can live with rather than quick-fixes and short-term diets that you can’t keep up in the long-run.
