What is Diet Counselling?
Diet Counselling is the supportive methodology that boosts your recovery from a disease, boosts immunity, heals damaged cells, and even replaces the dead ones with new cells. In consultation with a dietician at Stem Cell Care India, they will thoroughly go through your medical reports and curate a customized healthcare plan for the patient’s unique condition. This healthcare plan will assist the treatment of the patient and help them return to their best health faster.
At Stem Cell Care India, dieticians are highly trained to create customized meal plans that not only cater to each patient’s specific needs and likes but also their food preferences. This is necessary for the wellness of our patients because it takes into account everything from their medical history to any possible allergies they might have. However, we understand that sometimes what may be good for you diet-wise isn’t necessarily feasible from a time or budget point of view, so our dieticians try to at least get you started on a healthy meal plan that is as convenient as it could be.
How does Diet Counselling work?
Diet and nutrition play a huge role in how the human body works, particularly when it comes to carrying out processes such as neurological development. If appropriate nutrition is not being provided, especially during crucial stages of development, the individual might suffer greatly and possibly be unable to develop fully or properly as this is so important in regards to proper brain development. For example, during the infant stage, milk contains many nutrients that will help children develop fully and maintain good health throughout their life.
Elimination diets can be prescribed to patients who have neurological conditions like autism or cerebral palsy. The idea behind an elimination diet is that eliminating certain elements from the diet, such as gluten or casein, allows the patient’s gut bacteria, which produce toxic compounds that could affect their immune system, to regenerate and metabolize. A study from UCLA performed in 2001 showed that 37 out of 45 kids with gastrointestinal disorders were able to benefit from a gluten-free diet. Elimination diets could even work for Parkinson’s disease, which affects the motor system of the brain by causing tremors, stiffness, and difficulties with walking and gait.
Why is following the diet plan recommended after Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy is based around activating the bodies healing capabilities and therefore overcoming the injury or disease. A good diet that has been customized for the patient undergoing stem cell treatment will not only be able to secure the effects of the treatment to their fullest by removing any unnecessary or unfavorable components but also will a good diet be able to boost the recuperative capabilities of the body by providing it with all the required nutrients.
Who can get Diet Counselling?
Diet counseling is primarily recommended for individuals who suffer from, or are at risk of developing, a medical condition that results in malnutrition or is undergoing a treatment such as a stem cell therapy which is benefitted from a healthy body. The treatment will focus on assessing and improving eating habits. If you need diet counseling because of a diagnosed condition like celiac disease, it’s important to bring it up—you may be in need of more specific precautions than others.
