Nutrition plays an important role in controlling our moods and mental health. Understanding your relationship with food is essential for coping with your health, and the better we eat, the healthier we tend to be. Although there is a vast amount of diets to choose from, one often less understood approach is functional nutrition. At The Generative Therapy Center, we’re here to help you understand this method of food consumption, as it can benefit you on the path towards mental well-being.

How Functional Nutrition Can Change Your Life
What Is Functional Nutrition?
Functional nutrition is a dieting method that focuses on the connection between the brain and other functions affected by food consumption — such as the guts, stomach, and heart. Functional nutrition teaches us how to eat the right foods to keep our bodies from decaying and aging prematurely while providing strength and health. This method helps maintain the body's 12 systems which must be nourished adequately to function well!
Functional Nutrition Coaching
The Generative Therapy Center offers functional nutrition coaching that takes into account the complex relationship between mental and nutritional health. This is based on the idea that all mental conditions correlate with psychological and physical symptoms — such as anxiety and gastric issues.

Factors That Can Benefit from Functional Nutrition

Nutritional factors that undermine mental health well-being include:
Eating while stressed or to cope with stress
Food allergies, sensitivities, and inflammations
Diet not adapted to metabolism
Eating too much of one type of food
