When it comes to how nutrition relates to dentistry, we all know the basic staples: avoid sugary foods and sodas in order to prevent cavities, be careful when eating any hard or sticky candies if you want to avoid damage, and so on. But are you aware that eating healthy, nutritious foods on a regular basis can actually improve your oral health and help you recover from potentially dangerous conditions such as gum disease? At Dr. DiGiallorenzo’s Philadelphia area practices, we focus on warm, wholesome care that bolsters the health of your entire being, not just your pearly whites. That’s why whenever you come in to receive oral healthcare, we’re happy to provide nutritional therapy in order to help you support the beautiful, renewed results you received under our care!
Why is nutritional therapy important?
As we’ve seen with the use of homeopathic medicine, your body is remarkably good at healing itself – all you need to do is give it the right tools! Nutritional therapy is one of the ways you can accomplish this. When you come into either our Collegeville or Williamsport offices, Dr. DiGiallorenzo will make personalized recommendations that could include the following:
- Eating whole grain more often
- Adding variety to the vegetables you eat on a daily basis
- Focusing on fruit with meals
- Eating foods that are rich in calcium and lean on protein
- Making sure to balance a good diet with physical activity
- Quitting smoking with the help of our support system
Contact our Collegeville or Williamsport office today to learn more about the holistic therapies we can provide you with, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment with Dr. DiGiallorenzo. We welcome patients from all over the Philadelphia area and beyond to participate in our thorough, comfortable care.
