Have you ever thought about seeing a Registered Dietitian to help you feel better?
You might not know what role a dietitian can help in your gut health. We are actually the best professional to help you with managing your pain that is associated with eating.
A typical appointment begins with getting to know each other. Discussing any relevant medical conditions, listening to symptoms, lifestyle patterns, diet recall, and patient goals. Then, your dietitian uses all of this information and my knowledge base to look as the person as a whole entity to decide which first steps would be best for the client, whether it would be food sensitivity testing, low FODMAP diet, stool test, SIBO testing, or simply keeping a food log to identify patterns. At times, there are 2 things to do as first steps! A diet first approach is the best way to intervene and restore all bodily symptoms, and only after that will your dietitian use supplementations such as probiotics, digestive enzymes, multivitamins etc.
Each person is unique, and there is no one size fits all, and each person’s body is extremely unique. One approach may work better for a certain client, so assessing symptom improvement and progress during this time is crucial.
