Nutrition Q & A

What is nutrition?

Nutrition is the study of the nutrients in your food and the science of putting food to use in your body. At Pain To Wellness Healthcare, Dr. Helen is passionate about using nutrition to cure sickness and disease and prevent future problems.

What are the types of nutrients?

Your body requires essential nutrients that it can’t make on its own. The only way to get these essential nutrients is through the foods you eat.

Adequate intake of these vital nutrients, categorized as macronutrients and micronutrients, helps prevent disease and support growth:

  • Fats
  • Carbohydrates
  • Protein
  • Minerals
  • Vitamins
  • Water

By eating a colorful and varied diet that’s rich in vegetables, fruit, healthy fats, and diverse protein, you ensure your body is getting the essential nutrients it needs to serve you well.

Why is nutrition important?

To live your best life and optimize your health, you need to focus on nutrition. A well-rounded diet ensures you get the right nutrients in optimal amounts.

Dr. Helen’s understanding of nutrition’s critical role in overall health is what propelled her to open her private practice in Madison. To help you extend your longevity and live vibrantly, Dr. Helen uses an integrative approach that blends best practices from both alternative and traditional medicine.

What is included in a nutritional program?

Dr. Helen and her team of nutrition and wellness coaches help you transform your health through healthy food choices and lifestyle changes. Equipped with Hippocrates’ famous mantra, “Let Food Be Thy Medicine,” she customizes an eating plan that focuses on plant-based, whole foods that come directly from nature.
