Who would benefit from working with a Nutritionist?

Children and older adults with a variety of conditions or symptoms, including:

  • Fatigue, stress and poor sleep
  • Pain (back, neck, neuropathic, acute, chronic)
  • Impaired focus/concentration
  • Depression, anxiety and impaired cognition
  • Overweight/Underweight
  • Impaired performance in sport and work
  • Prenatal/Postnatal
  • Post-Concussion
  • Cancers
  • Acquired Brain Injury, Stroke and Spinal Cord Injury
  • Change in bladder function
  • Skin changes

What can I expect from Nutrition sessions at Neurocore?

  • A review of your food consumption, medications, supplements, and mood
  • Implementation of a food diary to monitor your eating habits and symptoms
  • Follow-up appointments to address trends, food sensitives or triggers related to your symptoms
  • A personalized nutritional meal plan (including ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, hydration options and, if needed, appropriate supplements)
  • Follow-up to track progress and make any needed adjustments after adopting a nutritional meal plan

I have a neurological condition; why am I at increased risk of nutrient deficiencies?

  • Compromised digestive function
  • Physical, emotional, psychological stress
  • The intake of certain medications
  • Decreased energy and reduced mobility
  • Impaired dexterity to prepare healthy meals on a consistent basis

Furthermore, neurological injuries place one at a high risk of developing recurring and potentially life-threatening secondary health complications such as:

  • Pressure sores
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Type 2 diabetes

These secondary health conditions, in turn, place additional demand on the body for nutrients.
