HEALTHY AND LONG LIFE WITH MEMORIAL WELLNESS
The state of well-being is not just the state of having no diseases or injuries but also includes a person being “WELL” from a physical, spiritual and social way in a whole. On the contrary to the expectations, as technology advances people decline with respect to the status of “well-being” and this condition also introduces serious societal problems as well. Numerous ever increasing diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, obesity – especially obesity in children mean the ever worsening deterioration of the health of both the individual and the society. One of the most important reasons of this is the changing nutritional habits.
In our day where everything is progressing and changing at an incredible pace, people who struggle to catch up to life may steal time from their healthy meals or exercise routines, and get further away from their core selves. On top of this, trust in healthy food has decreased to an all-time low, with even the very water we drink became a suspected item.
When we look back 20 years to the times when access to information was not as easy as it is today, our times in comparison has a significant difficulty of “reaching the right information”. And this phenomenon is causing a great deal of confusion in the minds of people who need support in this area.
The ever rising rate of obesity despite having so many people are talking about nutrition is the irony of the century for us all. In fact, obtaining the right information from people who are experts in their fields should be the main objective. Only through this can we create permanent solutions and be helpful for humanity.
Memorial Wellness aims to reach a state of complete well-being through a holistic approach including the required health areas. Our Nutrition & Dietetics Department takes measurements to make body and nutritional status evaluations. The obtained results can be used to give trainings on food and nutrition, healthy nutrition programs can be prepared to create plans to maintain optimal weights for individuals, and further consultancy can be given for special circumstances such as nutrition as a change of life style, nutrition while training and nutrition for athletes, pregnancy nutrition and nutrition while suffering from specific conditions.
Medical history, conditions or disease risks, genetic tendencies, bodily findings, biochemistry, macronutrition and micronutrition elemental sufficiency levels, food consumption habits, physical activity level, rate of metabolism and other various elements will be guiding data for the nutritional planning phase. When necessary, the individual can be referred to other specialists in order to get more support.
Following this analysis, the individuals are provided with suitable targets, with exemplary titles such as: “How can I eat more healthy?” ”How can I use nutrition to slow down cellular aging?” ”What should I consume to strengthen my immune system?” ”What sort of feeding tips do I need during special circumstances?”.
Nutrition or diet support is not just for losing weight. These are also useful guidance material for people during times of diseases as well as health. The importance of this is being better understood through the negative outcomes of incorrect diet applications that are becoming rampant in our times.
