Healthy Aging for our Veterans
Our diet has a direct impact on our health. Fuel Your Life Dietitians use this impact to assist in the management of a range health conditions such as diabetes, blood pressure and heart disease to name a few. The Dietitians at Fuel Your Life promote wellness, disease prevention and management through evidence-based nutritional services while seamlessly catering to suit your lifestyle.
Managing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety and depression with diet
People often ask, “Does diet and nutrition matter when it comes to managing the symptoms of PTSD?” In short, it certainly does.
Mental health conditions interplay with the diet as they worsen the symptoms and can also help to reduce and even prevent them. Depression, anxiety or PTSD can impact your appetite in many ways, both increasing and/or reducing your appetite leading to erratic eating patterns, associating feelings with particular foods and then subsequently making poor nutrition decisions. Studies suggest that many foods may help reduce stress, ease anxiety and fight depression.
The specialist Dietitians at Fuel Your Life are trained to help you manage these symptoms through the development of a customised nutrition plan and regain balance in your life while still enjoying the food and lifestyle you love.
