Fun Facts About Nutrition:

 

Nutrition plays a significant role in our daily life. Food or liquids affect our body and health because each food or beverage contains particular nutrition, which is very necessary for our physical and mental growth. A specific level of any particular nutrition is essential for our body. So, we should know what food we have to take, how much, and what type of nutrition contains a particular food. There is a lot of controversy in nutrition, and it often seems like people cannot agree on anything. But there are a few exceptions to this.

Why Do Physical Therapists Care About Your Health?

 

Physical therapists treat their patients using a holistic approach that considers the impact of exercise on the whole person. Nutrition plays a pivotal role in the healing process and can either enhance or hinder a patient’s recovery from musculoskeletal injury. Conversely, the entire person (including diet) can have a significant impact on exercise. Diet can influence the risk of chronic disorders such as type II diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. Being aware of the role of dietary factors in patient outcomes will enhance the physical therapy practice.

 

 Thomas Edison once predicted that “the doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.”
