Would you benefit seeing a dietitian?

Eating healthful foods and eating well used to be easier. Food was less refined, processed and complicated. Nutrition remains an important factor for Canadians when selecting foods, with 71% rating it important according to the National Institute of Nutrition's latest survey Tracking Nutrition Trends V. Given the vast choice of foods available and the many conflicting nutrition messages, many of us are understandably confused and frustrated about what it means to eat to a healthy diet and may be tempted to just give up. But consider this:

You will eat over 82,000 meals in your lifetime!

Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food

— Hippocrates

Food and therefore nutrition is an important part of being and staying healthy. The choices you make will impact your health either in a negative or positive way; Hippocrates knew this when he said “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”. With this in mind, Dietitians are your trusted nutrition experts and can be a great ally in coaching you to reach your personal nutritional goals!

If you want to lose or gain weight, if you have an allergy or illness that restricts your food intake, if you are considering vegetarianism or want to fine tune your vegetarian diet, if you have a need for medical nutrition therapy or if you just want to eat better to improve your energy, well-being and overall health, then I can help you plan to ensure you get enough nutrients and in the proper ratio to stay healthy. This involves gaining a clear understanding of your eating habits, identifying areas of strength in your current eating patterns and areas for improvement, and setting up a specific plan, taking into account what you like to eat and your daily schedule/lifestyle.

Save Money with Home Made Anti Aging Natural Treatments

Modern research methods have finally revealed the secret to reversing skin aging. Every individual especially women get to be worried about wrinkles, age spots and dark spots that appear on the skin. Who isn't? You no longer have to spend thousands of dollars on cosmetic products which not only damage your skin further but provide no meaningful results.

This is because they are manufactured with artificial ingredients which are composed of dangerous and unhealthy elements. What you need to know is that you don't have to spend thousands of dollars or expose your skin to dangerous chemicals in order to have a youthful skin when aging.

You can finally look good with different anti aging natural treatments made at the comfort of your home. Below are examples of anti aging home remedies you can prepare.

Cucumber Aloe Cold Cream

As you age, your skin gets drier and duller but thanks to this super hydrating homemade cream, you can finally look radiant and youthful. You need the following:

a.1/2 a cup of plain organic Greek yoghurt

b.i/4 cup of chopped and seeded cucumber

c.1/4 aloe fresh peeled and chopped

d.1/2 a cup lemon juice

How to Make

Start with a line mesh strainer and place a few layers of cheese cloth. Set it over a bowl and pour the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Once you have blended the mixture, you can pour it in the strainer. This will remove the solid particles and ensure you have a smooth mixture in the end. Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator for a few hours or even overnight. In the morning, you can transfer the thickened yoghurt mixture to a clean bowl. Discard the remaining liquid or you can mix it with almond meal to make a quick facial scrub.

To apply, use your hands and ensure you cover the areas of the skin which are vulnerable like the face and the arms. Let it sit for 30 minutes before removing the mixture using a washcloth. Follow up with toner.

Avocado Wheat Grass Mask

Avocado is known to be rich in omega 3 fats which are known to help in moisturizing the skin ensuring that it stays healthy and radiant. It contains Vitamin E which makes it a perfect anti aging natural treatment that can be prepared at home. Vitamin E helps to improve the texture of the skin as well as fighting the free radicals which are known to cause damage to the skin. This ultimately leads to skin aging causing wrinkles and age spots among others. The avocado is mixed with plain yoghurt which contains lactic acid that helps to loosen dead skin cells giving one's complexion a fresher and brighter appearance. Wheat grass juice helps to punch anti-aging powerhouses Vitamin A and E into the mixture.

What You Need

a.1/2 ripe avocado

b.2 tablespoons of plain organic Greek yoghurt

c.1 tablespoon wheat grass juice.

How to Prepare

Pour all the ingredients in a blender, blend for a couple of minutes before pouring it out in a clean bowl. Once you have done so, you can apply a thick layer of the mixture on your face and allow it to dry for 15 to 20 minutes. Proceed to rinse your skin with tepid water and follow with a toner.

Final Thoughts

You no longer have to spend thousands of dollars in order to purchase cosmetic products from stores in order to fight aging. You can save you money and get to fight skin aging thanks to home prepared anti aging natural treatments. They are full of nutrients; they are natural and provide the required results.
