The Benefits of Healthy Eating
Why should you talk to Dr. Muzzi about nutrition? The reason is simple: A healthy diet is the cornerstone of lifelong wellness. For instance, maintaining an optimal diet can:
- Support your body’s immune system
- Lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Reduce your risk of infection
- Preserve your lean muscle mass
- Promote the healing of damaged tissues
- Increase your energy level
- Help you achieve and maintain a healthy body weight
In addition, many potentially serious health conditions, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, can be prevented or treated by improving what you eat. In this way, food can serve as medicine.
The Challenges of Our Culture
Even after receiving practical advice on how to develop and maintain healthy eating habits, most people in the U.S. return to an environment where food is readily available, processed, convenient, and highly palatable. As a result, that sage advice often goes unheeded, despite the best intentions. Dr. Muzzi understands this, and while she believes it is important to teach people about good nutrition, she believes it is equally important to teach them how to prepare meals at home using healthy ingredients.
If you’re ready to take your first step toward cleaning up your diet, become a member of Optimum Direct Care and allow Dr. Muzzi to translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions that fit into your healthy lifestyle. She can provide personalized education and recommendations on how to keep yourself nourished with a well-balanced diet that includes all of the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to ensure peak performance.
