It’s simple really. Healthy food choices lead to a healthier you. But sometimes it’s difficult to know what those choices should be at a given moment. At Beyond Limits Nutrition, we have the clinical background and expertise to help you identify which foods react with certain medications, trigger allergic responses, irritate or fatigue the digestive system, deplete calcium resources, block nutrient absorption, and in general, counteract the good intentions behind your meals.
When treating an illness or injury, food can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Sure, everyone knows that junk food is bad … but did you know that consuming nightshades, such as tomatoes and potatoes, may be exacerbating your arthritis symptoms by inducing inflammation? Were you aware that drinking black tea during meals can interfere with iron absorption? Could your morning cup of coffee be sabotaging your important company presentation by triggering acid reflux and damaging your voice? Or that eating a Mediterranean diet may help with your dementia?
At Beyond Limits, our nutritional team can offer practical dietary strategies and help you integrate better, healthier foods into your daily life.
