What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?

IBS is a functional gastrointestinal disorder characterized by a group of symptoms accompanied together that include abdominal pain and changes in the consistency of bowel movements.

IBS is classified into four main types depending on whether constipation or diarrhea is common, both are common, or none occur very often (IBS-D, IBS-C, IBS-M, or IBS-U, respectively). The negative affects of IBS may result in missed school, work or other social opportunities, essentially lowering one’s quality of life .

What is Nutrition?

Nutrition as a discipline is the study of nutrients found in human food, how the body uses these nutrients, and the relationship between health, diet, and ailments. The kind of food we eat is connected to our health and has the ability to fight diseases. CARESPACE Registered Dietitians are trained professionals using evidence-based methods to work with you to achieve your goals with long-lasting sustainable results. Dietitians use their knowledge of food, biology, biochemistry, and genetics to decipher how nutrients influence the human body.

Dietitians educate and counsel individuals on how their food and nutrient choices can be optimized to reduce the risk of non-communicable diseases. For certain ailments, proper nutrition can hasten the healing process by limiting the intake of harmful foods and increasing the intake of helpful portions. Basically, nutrition comprises proteins, carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and water. The human body requires a balance of these elements as an imbalance could lead to a decline in your health and wellbeing.

What are some benefits of proper Nutrition?

Nutrition has immense benefits to the human body. Good nutrition is essential as it fuels our bodies to perform our daily activities. The human body comprises of cells, tissues, and muscles, all of which require a constant supply of nutrients to function properly. Consistent lack of these nutrients can eventually have an impact on how the body responds to work and possible disease. ​

Good nutrition helps us cope with stress, frustrations, and fatigue. This is because proper nutrition nourishes our brains to become more adaptable to various emotions. Moreover, lack of proper nutrients can lead to bad moods. Proper nutrition also boosts our immunity to diseases. When we eat well, our bodies become better armed to fight pathogens that may infiltrate our system. ​

Proper nutrition is not just important for adults. It is even more essential in children. Children who are still actively growing need proper nutrition to grow and meet their daily bodily nutritional needs. In addition, feeding children a proper diet enables them to develop their mental faculties.

What’s the difference between Dietitian and Nutritionist?

Dietitians are sometimes called Nutritionists, but Nutritionists cannot call themselves a Dietitian. Dietitian is a protected title in Canada similar to other regulated healthcare professions such as Pharmacist, Nurse, Naturopathic Doctor or Physiotherapist. Dietitians have earned a degree from an accredited university and have comprehensive and rigorous training.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
