Staying energetic and mentally sharp through winter:
A Better Body by Steve

A Better Body by Steve 

Q: As the days get shorter, how do I maintain my energy level and mental sharpness?

A: Studies have shown that exercise and nutrition can greatly impact mood and focus. Start with exercises that are fun and interesting. The best program will challenge you enough so you can earn a feeling of success when you’re done. It should also have enough variety to keep you mentally engaged. A personal trainer is a great tool to help with this. Next, learn about the food you’re eating. Does it have hidden sugars that cause a crash later or lots of fat that can sap your energy? When choosing food, it’s important to not only understand what is good for you but why it’s good. With so much varying information out there, it’s helpful to have a nutritional coach who can talk to you one-on-one about your specific needs.

Q: What should I eat in order to reach my weight goals, optimize my gut health, and boost my immune system? I’m tired of the abundance of mixed messages concerning nutrition. Is there a credible resource that can help me?

A: There is a reason why nutrition misinformation exists: it all depends on the individual. Multiple factors should be considered such as: medical conditions, food preferences, your digestive system function, activity level, and lifestyle. That’s why it is essential to have a personalized plan curated by your own registered dietitian nutritionist who interprets the research and provides you with the most up-to-date nutrition recommendations. At Amenta Nutrition, our customized nutrition counseling is practical, sustainable, and specific to your needs. After all, it’s an investment in your future self!

Restoring your sensational smile: The Center for Cosmetic Dentistry

Center for Cosmetic Dentistry

Q: What can I do if all my teeth are completely worn down and broken?

A: Tooth wear and acid erosion are a very serious problem. Severely broken and worn teeth can lead to joint problems (TMJ), premature aging, and a sunken and collapsed lower third of the face. In many cases, a solution can be reached through careful planning and computer-generated projections, where a patient’s worn-down teeth can be crowned and restored to their original height. This type of dentistry is called full mouth rehabilitation and should be performed by a dentist with special training in this area of expertise.
