The answer to this is a resounding … YES!
Most people think about seeing a nutritionist when they are experiencing chronic and uncomfortable digestive symptoms or wish to shed some weight.
But did you know that your diet can influence SO MANY ADDITIONAL symptoms that you may be experiencing?
Some Symptoms that Your Food Choices Can Improve
- Chronic joint pain
- Headaches or migraines
- Anxiety and depression
- Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis or acne
- Autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto’s (thyroid condition) or rheumatoid arthritis
- Fatigue, brain fog and the inability to get a good night’s sleep
It’s important to remember that no particular diet is going to work for everyone. And that can make finding the right solution for you challenging because there is no blanket “black and white” answer. It’s about the right food for the right person at the right time in the right quantity.
That’s not too much to ask, is it??
I know it may seem overwhelming. And, when we feel overwhelmed, it’s tempting to throw in the towel and say, “well, if I can’t find the answer quickly, I won’t do anything… it’s too much for me to think about right now.”
Imagine Achieving Your Goal
But imagine how you would feel if you started to explore making one change at a time? If you got yourself the support you needed to make it happen? How great would it be if, in a year’s (or two’s) time, your symptoms were significantly reduced or gone?
If you believed that would happen, then you would be pretty motivated to make a start now, wouldn’t you? Well, it’s true. Changes will make a difference in the long run! And the best way to get started is to get started.
There is one thing that is relevant for everyone. And that is that the issues that led to your symptoms are closely connected to the food you are eating. Because the health of our digestive tract influences the health around our body.

How to Get Started
The 2 key starting points are to eat an anti-inflammatory diet and remove food sensitivities.
You can get started on the first by removing the processed junk… candy, pop, chips. You know the stuff that everyone is clear is bad for you. You don’t have to do something radical. Just pick something you know is bad and replace it with something you know is good. Then, when it becomes routine, move on to the next thing.
Removing food sensitivities can involve an elimination diet or food sensitivity testing or a combination of both. This is key because a healthy food that is good for one person might be the root of inflammation for another. And these can sometimes be hard to identify if our reactions to the food are delayed.
