Diet therapy also refers to nutrient modification for therapeutic purposes. A diet type described as “low” would minimize a certain nutrient or nutrients. A low-fiber diet, for example, might be prescribed for a patient after stomach or intestinal surgery to reduce the amount of digestion taking place after a meal. Other diet therapy types that minimize nutrients include a low-cholesterol diet, a low-sodium diet or a low-oxalate diet.
Certain conditions require an increase in nutrient intake. Pregnancy diets are prescribed to supply the mother and fetus with extra calories, protein, iron and folate. A high-fiber diet might be recommended for patients suffering from constipation, which is a side effect of many pain medications.
A comprehensive diet plan, prescribed for patients with multiple issues, might increase certain nutrients and minimize others. Patients who suffer from heart disease, diabetes or obesity might be prescribed a plan that reduces the amount of calories, fats and sugars in the diet but increases fiber and protein intake for satiety. For a person to ensure that a diet therapy regimen is sound and appropriate for a particular medical condition, it is important for him or her discuss nutritional intake, including the use of alternative therapies such as dietary supplements, with a licensed healthcare provider
I have been coming to Yoga Sol for about 6 months and it’s been a life-changing experience. The studio is always clean and that includes the bathrooms. There are lockers there so you can stow your belongings safely.
Yoga Sol is a community of teachers and students deeply interested in self improvement. The staff really does care about their students and you can see the dedication the teachers have in sharing their love of Yoga.
