The Importance of Nutrition

Posted on February 28th, 2013 by | 4 views

You are what you eat!” We’ve heard it plenty of times throughout our lives; maybe there's actually something to it…

There is!!!

Diet is one of the most important factors in a person’s health. It is directly related to our blood sugar levels, which is directly linked to our hormone system, which affects our reproductive health… and on and on. Changing one’s diet can sometimes be the key to increasing fertility and maintaining a healthypregnancy. Making sure the right nutrients and supplements are included in a pregnant woman’s diet is of the greatest importance, as what she eats influences almost every health aspect of her unborn child, especially its brain and nervous system. Even getting plenty of the right foods and avoiding others can make the difference between a happy or a fussy baby when breastfeeding, since some breastfed babies are extremely sensitive to what their mother eats.

Finding nutritional help may be a necessary step for those battling fertility issues, those who are pregnant and unsure about what they should and should not be eating or taking, and mothers with babies who are restless, unhappy, or unhealthy. To find a nutritionist who can help in one of these or related areas, search through our Directory of Nutritionists.
