What Does a Nutritionist Do – Part 2
After learning how well read my blog was on the role of nutritionists, I thought you might be interested in learning more! It is incredible to watch the rapidly increasing interest in nutrition, as more and more people are having health challenges and not finding the help they need through conventional means.
I remember being asked to go to a couple’s home to teach the father about feeding his children healthily (I have actually done this a few times!). He didn’t know that I was there for him, so when I arrived, he tried to excuse himself from the meeting! I asked him if he could stay, reminding him that the way in which we feed our children for optimal health was as important for him to understand, as it was for his wife. He reluctantly stayed. A little while into our meeting, he said “You nutritionists have just found a new way to make money.” Here was my response: “I wish that there was absolutely no need for nutritionists. Our ancestors didn’t need nutritionists or people to research food and its effects because their food was unadulterated, pure and nutrient rich. The problem is that the almighty dollar and the general increased toxicity in the world has created a whole pile of unhealthy food in this world and as a result of consuming it, we are the most sick of any generation in the history of mankind. This crisis has demanded that we research food and its effects and find healthy food for ourselves because it is no longer omnipresent. And I can tell you that very few nutritionists are in this business for the money.” I then proceeded to tell him how much money I was charging him to come out to his home and that I would only be meeting with him once. I explained that we would set goals for implementing my recommendations and follow up via email, if he so desired. We talked for an hour and a half and at the end of the meeting, the father said “So what you are saying is that if I were to stop feeding my boys all of this packaged stuff, filled with chemicals, and instead fed my children from an organic garden in my backyard (preserving for the winter) and got my eggs and meat from my brother’s natural farm, my children’s ADD will improve?” “That’s exactly what I am saying” I replied.
Nutritionists are really just trying to help society return to the way things used to be done, when it comes to healthy eating. Now, that is not to say that we are all farmers or granolas! But we know where to find the farmers, the granolas and the stores that sell the vitamin and mineral rich foods. And we thoroughly understand how to do things differently than the majority if we want to remain healthy and age gracefully. We also help families learn how to gradually implement great-tasting, healthier ideas into their routine.
And speaking of mineral deficiencies, all those picky eaters out there are often missing a certain mineral that can help them taste their food better! I spend a lot of my time helping convert picky eaters, as well as sick children, into children that enjoy and are nourished by food.
