Nutrition Counseling for IBS and Digestion Issues
Why I love working with digestive health clients
By Registered Dietitian Kate Chury, (Online Dietitian, Digestive Health Nutritionist and IBS Dietitian Calgary)
As a Registered Dietitian, I talk a lot about food. I also talk a lot about what happens to the food when it leaves our body. When I first started out studying nutrition, I didn’t think that I’d talk so much about bowel movements but somehow my job has morphed into just that. And you know what? I don’t mind.
Digestive health is so very important. Actually, it’s one of my favourite things to talk about. Why? I’ll give you 3 reasons…
- The gut (aka – the digestive tract) is really interesting. I’ve always been fascinated about how the body works, the digestive tract is no exception. Although we know a lot about the digestive tract already, we are still learning more about how important a healthy gut is to our entire health…and that’s pretty cool, don’t you think?
- I like a good mystery, I always have. Sometimes when clients come to me with digestive issues, a little sleuthing and ‘trial and error’ testing needs to be done to uncover what’s really causing their digestive woes. Digestive issues aren’t always a clear cut issue, and I enjoy trying to figure out what’s going on.
- This is, by far, my most important reason for enjoying working with digestive health – the impact solving digestive issues has on my client’s well being. Getting to the bottom of digestive woes can make a huge impact on someone’s quality of life.
