What is Local Nutritionist

If you’re managing an inflammatory condition such as lupus, gout, arthritis or osteoarthritis, following an anti-inflammatory diet is incredibly important. Anti-inflammatory foods include leafy greens such as kale and spinach, fatty fish, nuts and fruits such as blueberries, strawberries and oranges and high-fibre foods such as whole grains. A person with an inflammatory condition will likely work with a local rheumatologist. Many people with diseases such as arthritis and fibromyalgia or recovering from an orthopedic surgery may also benefit from working with a local nutritionist.

A local nutritionist is a healthcare provider who is trained in nutritional science, which includes everything from understanding plant sterols and using food as medicine to how various supplements affect the body. A local nutritionist may work in a school, hospital, nursing home or private practice.  In addition to helping you plan meals, a local nutritionist can educate you about potential food and medication interactions and how to fuel your body for exercise. If you’re interested in learning more about how a local nutritionist can help you, start by speaking to your local family physician or local rheumatologist

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when your body's immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. The inflammation can affect numerous body systems, from your joints to your lungs. It can be a challenging disease to diagnose as its signs and symptoms mimic those of other ailments.
