The Foods You Eat Will Have A Big Impact On Your Teeth

How an Improper Diet Could Prolong Rehabilitation

Category : Diet , General

The role of exercise and proper rest is well understood when it comes to rehabilitation, but what is often overlooked is the role food and diet plays as well.

If you are not eating enough food, and in the right proportions, you could be delaying your rehabilitation process.

What can bodybuilders teach us about rehabilitation?

How an Improper Diet Could Prolong Rehabilitation

Many people might not realize that bodybuilders spent more time in the kitchen that they do the weight room. This is because they know that their bodies will not grow unless they provide it with the proper amount of resources.

The same principle applies to therapy as well. You could be performing all the right exercises and getting your eight hours of sleep a night, but if your body is not getting enough food it will not heal itself as quickly as it could.

Physiotherapy clinics in Ontario such as Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Centres of Ontario (PARC) understand this as well. PARC want to provide you not only with the care that you need, but also the knowledge you will need to get back to being your old self again.

Isn’t counting calories only for weight loss?

How an Improper Diet Could Prolong Rehabilitation

Calorie counting for weight loss is a common misconception. Counting calories is just a method to ensure you are getting the right amount of energy and resources for your particular set of needs.

Your body will burn off a certain amount of calories over the course of the day. This is what is known as your maintenance level. If you eat at exactly maintenance you will neither gain nor lose weight.

The extra calories will allow your body to heal itself as quickly as it possibly can.

On the other hand, though, if you consume too much food your body will not be able to put it all to good use and convert some of it to fat. The extra can also hinder the rehabilitation process.

Be sure to check in with PARC so they can help you understand what is the best diet for your individual needs.

You can just eat whatever you want then?

If only it were that simple! Your body can intake calories from three different dietary sources:

  • Protein
  • Carbohydrates
  • Fat

High protein diets are recommended in order to maximize your body’s ability to recover

This diet can be broken down into a ratio of calories consumed from these three different sources.

How an Improper Diet Could Prolong Rehabilitation

One common high protein diet ratio might look like this:

  • Protein: 30%
  • Carbohydrates: 45%
  • Fat: 25%

A simplified way of thinking about this breakdown is that fats and carbohydrates provide your body with the energy it needs to perform various tasks. While protein is the actual building blocks that make up your body and are what is needed to repair the damage.

If you aren’t getting the right amount of carbohydrates or fat, the body might not have the energy to heal you as quickly as it could. And if you are not consuming enough protein then your body might not have enough resources with which to carry out repairs.

So, be sure you are eating the proper amount of food and in the proper ratios so your body can optimize the healing process.

Five Foods Linked to Migraines

Category : Diet , General

Do you find yourself prone to migraines and headaches? Your diet just might be the culprit.

Foods containing alcohol, caffeine, and chocolate have been found by several studies to trigger headaches. According to Dr. Noah Rosen of the Headache Institute at North Shore-LIJ Health System in Long Island, N.Y., it’s not at all uncommon for food to be the cause of certain types of headaches—like migraines.

Although many different foods are known to cause headaches in certain people, there are still a few classic examples known to be a trigger in many individuals. If this sounds like you, it’s important to keep a food diary to keep track of your diet, as well as your own Head FX All-in-One Kit for fast headache relief.

I know because I endured this condition for so long and it was only when I was introduced to physical therapy that I experienced great relief from pain, discomfort, and all the other symptoms. And if there was one thing that I learned during my excellent physical therapy at Oriole Physiotherapy, it was the importance of having the proper diet to go along with your rehabilitation.

4 secrets to whole-day energy revealed in this article

Even at my age, I still consider myself as a man on the go. And I do not rely on caffeine or sport drinks to give me that energy boost or to maintain my high activity all day long. Only recently, I was able to drive what seemed as endless hours without feeling fatigued or the need for rest. Of course, credit must also be given to Gerry’s Automotive for keeping the vehicle in tip-top condition, allowing me that non-stop trip in great comfort and with confidence that no untoward incident may occur.

To my simple thinking, the extraordinary growth in the number of massage clinics is a testament to the benefits that massage therapy may offer a person. I have learned that massage therapy, based on scientific data, contributes hugely in the management of serious medical diseases such as cancer, fibromyalgia, heart-related diseases, and many other more. This is in addition to the recognized benefits that include the promotion of relaxation, relief from pain and muscle soreness, reduction of stress and tension, improvement of joint movement, and boosting of the immune system. While I myself have acknowledged these benefits, it was quite heartening to note that massage therapy can also be of great help in the digestion of foods.
