Nutrition

Why is nutrition an essential area of focus for new parents?

New parents want to do everything in their power to create a happy and healthy environment for their growing family. 

When your body is feeding a newborn, food and health, become central areas of focus. Unfortunately, far too many parents direct most of their focus on their baby’s nutrition and don’t pay close enough attention to fueling their own bodies. 

The best way to feel and function at peak levels is to give your body what it needs to thrive. Enhancing your nutrition benefits everyone in your household and can deliver improved focus, increased energy, and better sleep.

How can I boost my nutrition after becoming a parent?

Breastfeeding mothers should focus on staying hydrated, as your body requires more hydration than normal. Getting the right blend of nutrients is also important. 

Many parents become overwhelmed while adjusting to their new family structure, and feeding the family can become an afterthought. Your practitioner helps you add more fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats into your diet and cut down on highly processed “convenience” foods. 

Bringing a new baby home is a great opportunity for families with older children to incorporate healthier habits. When everyone is on board with healthier nutrition, maintaining new habits is easier all around.

What are some ways to extend my nutritional enhancement?

Once you begin to see the benefits of boosting your nutrition, you want to do all you can to extend those results. Your practitioner is here to explore the options and help you create a nutrition plan. 

Supplements might be part of your long-term nutritional planning. While you can certainly get all of the nutrients you need through food sources alone, supplements offer a way to fill any gaps in your nutritional needs. 

It’s important to understand that not all supplements share the same quality standards. Some are made with fillers and binders that offer no benefit and can be difficult for your body to break down properly.  

IV hydration is another tool to help fuel your body at the cellular level. This approach delivers a carefully blended solution of nutrients directly into your bloodstream, where your body can access those nutrients immediately.
