You need an approach that nourishes your body so it can function the way it’s supposed to
My name is Jennifer Brand and I am a clinical nutritionist. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics, a Master’s Degree in Public Health, a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition, I am a Certified Nutrition Specialist, gut health expert, and anti-diet advocate.
Your body runs on nutrients from foods you eat. When nutrients are missing, imbalances develop and symptoms and health problems follow, including your digestive symptoms, skin rashes, chronic fatigue, autoimmune disease, food sensitivities, and other health problems you can’t find relief from.
Three common reasons nutrients are missing are:
They are not being included in your diet. If you are on an elimination diet to manage your symptoms and health problems, if your diet is getting smaller and smaller, or if you are on a ‘healthy’ diet that restricts or eliminates whole, real foods, food groups, or categories of foods you are at risk. This can be particularly problematic in children because they are growing and developing at a quick pace and need nourishment to meet metabolic needs (so they can grow, develop, repair, function, and thrive ).
Your gut health is impaired so you’re not able to digest, absorb and use nutrients from the foods you eat. You aren’t what you eat, you are what your body can do with what you eat.
Chronic physical, chemical, and emotional stress burns through nutrients and steals them from other needs your body has.
Examples of physical stress include restricted diets, over exercise, physical trauma, impaired gut health, illness and disease of any kind
Examples of chemical stress include prescription medication use, environmental pollutants, pesticides and processed foods
Examples of emotional stress include personal, financial, and work related concerns
