Nutrition Q&A

Why is nutrition important?

Unhealthy eating habits contribute to the prevalence of serious diseases and health conditions, such as obesity, heart disease, and certain gastrointestinal disorders. Making improvements to your diet can minimize your risk of developing many of these diseases for a long, healthy life.

Which conditions are associated with poor nutrition?

Poor nutrition increases your risk of many chronic conditions that can negatively affect your health, such as:

Type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is caused by high blood sugar levels, which can be exacerbated by obesity and poor nutrition. When combined with regular exercise, a healthy diet that’s low in sodium, fat, and sugar can help lower your blood sugar levels and reduce your chances of diabetes complications, like heart disease, vision loss, and stroke.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a “wear and tear” type of arthritis, or joint inflammation, that causes a degeneration of the cushiony cartilage that protects your joints. Poor nutrition puts you at risk of obesity, which can put pressure on your joints, particularly your knee joints, and leads to the progression of osteoarthritis.

Colorectal cancer

Colorectal cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the colon, the lower part of the digestive tract. A high fat, low fiber diet can raise your risk of both obesity and colorectal cancer.

How can a personalized nutrition plan improve my health?

Dr. Granger is trained in Nutrition Response Testing®, a noninvasive test that relies on reflex responses to identify nutritional deficiencies in your body. Dr. Granger uses nutrition response testing to determine whether the connection of nerves from your brain to your organs is functioning properly.

The first step of this process is targeting your nutritional deficiencies, while the second focuses on supplements and dietary changes that can improve your health. A personalized plan can help improve your energy levels, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve digestion.

After the team has performed your individualized Nutrition Response Test, they can design a dietary plan that helps improve your overall health while reducing your risk of serious chronic conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.
