Nutrition refers to the food and drinks you consume to get the nutrients your body needs to function at its best. Good nutrition means eating a balanced diet that includes a variety of foods from all the food groups and meets your energy and nutrient needs.
At Pollard Concierge Health & Wellness, Dr. Pollard believes all health starts from the gut, or the gastrointestinal tract, and works its way out. Your gut helps breakdown and absorb nutrients from the food you eat. When your gut is working like it should, your body is getting everything it needs.
Many conditions affect gastrointestinal health. Additionally, poor gut health puts you at risk of developing chronic diseases. You and your gut health depend on the balance of microorganisms that live in the large intestine ― called the microbiome.
Your microbiome makes nutrients, regulates energy, supports immune health, and delivers hormonal cues to the brain that control hunger and mood. Diet, stress, and the environment may disrupt the balance of microorganisms in your gut, affecting these health benefits.
Dr. Pollard understands the connection between nutrition, gut health, and overall health and designs programs that provide your body what it needs for better overall health and disease prevention.
