Your Next Steps on your wellness and healing journey
What do I do next?
Use a copy of the food list you may have been provided with to plan for your shopping. It is important to have the correct foods available in order to succeed.
Try and buy fresh produce and fresh food. If possible, seek out organic food (or specifically food that has had limited or no exposure to conventional herbicides and pesticides)
You can ask our team for some guidance in this area.
If you have other people in the home, who will be eating a different diet, please ask someone else (perhaps another adult) to buy those other food items that you will not be eating.
When you arrive home, let the people you know what you will be doing and ask for their support. Do not try to force or convince everyone to join you but encourage them to learn how to eat and live better
If you live alone, clear out your refrigerator and food store/pantry and get rid of all foods that will be a distraction or that may cause temptations. If you live with other people, create a space that is for your things and if possible, create a “healthy cabinet” that will be for the healthy food.
We recommend that you get yourself the following items to help you on your journey.
A high-power blender/nutrient extractor to help you make health drinks and smoothies. We recommend one called a Nutribullet.
A water bottle. This can help you improve the amount of water you drink
Read your food and prescription plan
It outlines what foods to eat and what foods to avoid. You do NOT need to count calories, weigh or measure your food. A suggested meal plan may have been given to you to follow.
Remember that your eating guide is meant to help you eat better and not necessarily less. We do not want you to feel hungry as you go through your eating plan. Eat always until you are satisfied or almost satisfied at each meal.
Do not leave any meal hungry. If at any time you feel hungry, feel free to eat provided you are eating with the guidance provided by your plan Do not eat beyond satisfaction as this is not good for your body.
Learn to eat mindfully. This includes sitting down as you eat and chewing your food slowly. Avoid eating on the move, at your desk, while watching TV or while on your computer or your phone. Chewing the food slowly and mindfully always helps you to digest your food better and to avoid over eating
Nutritional Supplements and Medication
Nutritional supplements and herbal remedies may have been prescribed for you at your visit. Please note they are not pharmaceutical medicines. If a supplement has been prescribed, we encourage you to take it as they are meant to help you with your care and healing plan.
We endeavor to source the highest quality supplements. Although they do not usually cause side effects, occasionally, some people experience some side effects. If you do, please stop using the product and let us know.
Please do not stop or make any changes to any medications you are taking unless asked by a health professional. Note that sometimes it may be necessary to change or stop your medication as you continue your care with us. However only make changes to your medications or prescriptions after consulting a medical professional. Always let your primary care doctor know about any proposed or prescribed changes and get their consent. Let us know if you or they have any concerns before making any changes.
