Certified Clinical Nutritionistís Role in Nutrition:
Certified Clinical Nutritionists (CCNís) are a growing group of dedicated professionals who hold degrees in science and nutrition. CCNís are required to pass a rigorous examination provided by the Clinical Nutrition Certification Board (CNCB), maintain 40 hours of continuing education every two years and be re-certified by examination every 5 years.
Certified Clinical Nutritionists offer their services in private
practice or in collaboration with other licensed health care professionals
who recognize that nutritional dysfunction is at the core of most
illnesses today. As educators, researchers and authors, they provide
training to professionals, and often enhance community awareness
through lectures and other media venues.
Americans Suffer From Nutrition-Related Diseases:
Do you know that more than 1 in 2 Americans are overweight at a cost of 100 billion dollars per year in health costs due to diabetes, heart disease, colon cancer, etc.?
Despite that, 50% of Americans are nutritionally deficient, especially those over age 55. Changing your diet can increase your life span and help slow your aging process.
Diet vs. Nutrition:
Diet is what on eats and drinks and Nutrition is what happens inside the body as a result of what one eats and drinks.
Good nutrition happens when we provide ourselves
with all the nutrients we need in adequate amounts and in a form
the body can absorb and utilize. Much of what we need to achieve
good nutrition is acquired from the food, but increasingly, nutritional
supplements are needed to keep us healthy in the midst of the stresses
and circumstances of lives, including environmental pollution,
excessive food refinement, loss of sleep, exhaustion, emotional
strain, dieting and illness.
The Role Nutrition Plays in Disease:
deficiency is one of the basic reasons for aging and disease. The
Surgeon General’s Nutrition and Health Report of 1998 stated
that 685 of all deaths (2-3million per year) are nutrition related. Embracing
good dietary and supplemental nutrition increases our chances of
preventing or postponing many of the diseases that can so negatively
impact our quality of life such as heart disease, some cancer,
diabetes, and others. Good nutritional support can often
provide the foundation for successful treatment.
If you are not
starving yourself, can you be nutritionally deficient? Yes!
Sugar, to give one example, is an anti-nutrient; it robs the body
of essential nutrients such as B vitamins and zinc and it also
decreases the ability of your body’s immune system to function. As
we age, our body’s
ability to properly digest the food we eat decreases. It
is recommended that anyone over the age of 55 take nutritional
supplements because of this nutritional deficiency.
Nutrition Based Research:
Consumers are benefiting
from the exploding field of nutrition-based research. Scientists
are increasing the study of the effects that nutrition has on many
aspects of human health.
From nutrition research, we have
learned the necessity of choosing whole (and wholesome) foods
as well as the benefits of food supplements. We are identifying
the roles of nutrition in such seemingly unrelated problems as
birth defects, stamina, heart disease, and mental illness. We
are unveiling the roles of substances not yet recognized as nutrients
such as lipoic acid and conjugated linoleic acid, now found to
benefit diabetes. The healing powers of certain fats and
the detrimental effects of other fats are being defined.
