Digestive Health of Aging Patients

Digestion is an extremely important process. Among its many functions, it helps us obtain nutrients and energy. Age, lifestyle, and physical health can all affect your digestion. An imbalance in your digestive tract can cause such problems as gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, stomach pain and cramping. Helping your patients understand elements of digestion can help them avoid digestive problems and take greater pleasure in eating as they age. Here are a few tips for your patients who are working towards healthier digestion. Drink Plenty of Fluids Drinking plenty of water and nutritious fluids that contain fiber can help you avoid problems with constipation, as the combination of liquids and fiber can improve your digestion. Staying hydrated is important for digestive health. At the same time, you should be aware that caffeinated drinks such as tea and coffee can have the opposite effect of dehydrating your body. Make sure to encourage your patients to provide their body with a balance of fluids to make sure they are staying hydrated even after enjoying a caffeinated drink. Eat Healthy Eating unhealthy foods and overeating can be hard on your digestive system, causing indigestion, heartburn and excess weight gain. Eating smaller portions and following […] Read More

6 Essential Fats & Oils Your Client Needs In Their Diets

Healthy fats and oils are an important part of every diet. While some fats and oils work against us by increasing our cholesterol, some help prevent the buildup of artery-clogging cholesterol and can even help promote heart health. Of course, it’s important to teach your clients about the differences between healthy and unhealthy oils, and how to portion them out. Fats and oils can be high in calories, so portion control is critical. Here are our favorite oils and fats to educate your clients about: Avocados Avocados are among the healthiest fruits. Their abundance of monounsaturated fats can help reduce bad cholesterol, while promoting good cholesterol levels.

Help Your Clients Gain Control of Their Metabolism

It can be difficult to understand exactly what is happening with your own, or a client’s, metabolism when trying to lose weight through diet and exercise. Often, metabolism is to blame for people gaining weight, or for not being able to lose weight as quickly as a person would like. The truth of the matter is that metabolism is a very complicated process that occurs in the body that can be difficult to hone in on. Luckily, with supplements such as 7-Keto®, there is now a way to maintain and modulate your own and your client’s metabolism to help increase weight loss. Metabolism summarized is the way that your body can convert food into energy. Sometimes, though, when a metabolism is slow, food is not converted as efficiently as it should be and the food is then turned to fat rather than burned off as energy. There are many factors that can contribute to what level a person’s metabolism is at. Such factors can include age, diet, prior health, and activity level. Even a person’s gender can affect how efficiently the body can transform food and drink into energy. It has been proven that typically males have a higher metabolic […] Read More

Providing An Overall Health Change For Clients

When you’re working with a client who is struggling to lose weight, one of the most important messages you must communicate is how emotions affect their eating habits. Stress and anxiety often lead to mindless eating, which can quickly derail weight loss efforts. Mindless eating often focuses on comfort foods high in added fats, sugars and refined carbohydrates. Stress affects hormonal balance. One of the important hormones in this picture is ghrelin. Known as the hunger hormone, ghrelin has the important task of stimulating appetite. Stress increases the levels of ghrelin, making people think they’re hungry even when they aren’t. Chronic stress also affects cortisol, another hormone involved in the “fight or flight” response, and insulin, the hormone that controls blood sugar. Elevated cortisol and insulin levels can also increase appetite. In addition to increasing appetite, the changes in the hormones tend to drive people toward comfort foods, particularly carbohydrates. Many high-carb foods – think bread, pasta, chips and other processed food snacks – are also loaded with extra fat, sugar and salt. The carbohydrates, fat and sugar in the snacks have a feedback effect on the brain that helps decrease stress and anxiety. Research indicates that women seem to […] Read More

Here are a few snacks you can tell them to add to their grocery list that will help them when they get a craving and help boost their mood. Chocolate Chocolate makes you happy, right?
