During this pandemic situation, it is proven that built-in immunity helps in fighting most of the diseases including COVID-19. The old saying "Prevention is better than cure" is immortal and always stand test of time. And, who can help in inculcating immunity by good eating habits and healthy diet...the NUTRITIONIST...
 
Nutrition is the study of nutrients in food, how the body uses them, and the relationship between diet, health, and disease. Nutritionists use ideas from molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics to understand how nutrients affect human body. Nutrition also focuses on how people can use dietary choices to reduce risk of disease, what happens if a person has too much or too little of a nutrient, and how allergies work. Nutrients provide nourishment. Proteins, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, minerals, fibre, and water are all nutrients. If people do not have the right balance of nutrients in their diet, their risk of developing certain health conditions increases.
 
Most people know good nutrition and physical activity can help maintain a healthy weight. But the benefits of good nutrition go beyond weight. Good nutrition can help:
 
ü  Reduce the risk of some diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, some cancers, and osteoporosis
ü  Reduce high blood pressure
ü  Lower high cholesterol
ü  Improve Skin Health
ü  Boost Immune System
ü  Improve well-being
ü  Improve ability to fight off illness
ü  Improve ability to recover from illness or injury
ü  Increase energy level
ü  Delay effects of aging
ü  Positively affect mood
ü  Healthy diet may lengthen lifespan
 
Nutrition is an important aspect of each individual’s life. It is imperative to ensure that each one of us gets a balanced nutritional diet with all components that are needed in our stage of life. Hence it is important to consult a nutrition expertto ensure that you are on the right nutritional track. It is expensive to be unhealthy. YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.
 
Though Nutritionist play a critical role in healthy life, it is often most neglected section of the health-care profession. They are deprived of respect they deserve. Most often once health goals are achieved (usually weight management), the Nutritionistis forgotten. Rewards what Nutritionists get is many times less than equally educated individuals. The disparity in remuneration between equally important Health-Care Professionals and Nutritionists is huge. Even in Gyms, gap between salaries of trainers and Nutritionists is wide. We need to bridge such disparity, we need to narrow these gaps. Nutritionists should get proper respect and recognition they deserve in society.
 
If you agree, please sign this petition in support of Nutritionists, their status, their deserving recognition and their deserving reward. Let us create awareness and importance of nutrition in everyone’s lifestyle. As Hippocrates said LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE and not make medicine as your food. Let Nutritionists support you to make this happen. Thank you so much for your support.
