WHY SIGN UP FOR A NUTRITION PROGRAM AT NEOLIFE?

Changes in eating habits and lifestyle have the greatest potential to reduce the risk of disease, and improve life expectancy and quality of life for the population.

What sets us apart, and the key to our success, is the search for results 'with no expiration date', the innovation and experience of our experts, and the application of our comprehensive nutrition method, through which we assess each individual, as a whole.

Each individual’s balance depends on a set of interrelated mechanisms, and we know, that the success of a diet, is not only based on eating less: metabolic and hormonal imbalance plays a key role in the success of weight loss.

At Neolife, we have a multidisciplinary team of doctors and nutritionists, who analyze each individual’s possible imbalances, in order to optimize and enhance the results, all under the strictest monitoring.

WHY DO SO MANY DIETS FAIL, YET AT NEOLIFE WE ARE ALWAYS SUCCESSFUL?

Unrealistic goals are often set, together with general diets that are not tailored to the individual’s needs, leading the person to quit the diet and the change of habits.

At Neolife, we analyze each particular case, and work with the patient on nutritional guidelines, adapted to the person’s specific lifestyle and beliefs, always in an individualized way, and suited to their goals, lifestyle, schedules, tastes, illnesses, intolerances, etc., with realistic, measurable and achievable goals.

While traditional methods seek to meet short-term goals, following menus and diets with poor adherence, and based on insufficient nutritional education, the goal of the nutrition programs

At Neolife, is the prevention of diseases, as well as  the well-being and quality of life of patients, teaching them how to eat, how to change their lifestyle habits eand to make them sustainable over time, which is the true  formula for success. 

The field of health, and in particular, nutrition and dietetics, requires a proper regular updating from the professionals, always guided by the latest advances in science.

At Neolife, our nutrition teams specializes in clinical nutrition and diet therapy. It receives continuous training over time and their professional judgment is based on scientific evidence, which allows us to obtain the best results.

As we age, it is increasingly more difficult to maintain our weight or lose the excess weight we have gained. This makes us feel discouraged and want to ‘throw in the towel’. 

But this has a physiological explanation: it is due in part to the internal metabolic and hormonal imbalance, that comes with age (premenopause, menopause in women and andropause in men). For this reason, it is essential to have a medical team, that can monitor and mitigate these undesirable effects , while at the same time changing nutritional habits.

NEOLIFE NUTRITIONAL TOOLS

CONTINUOUS WORK IN CONSULTATION

In our nutrition consultations, our main objectives are: 

  • The loss of fatty tissue with maintenance of lean tissue (bone and muscle), achieving an improvement in the patient’s health and la physique, in the short and medium term. 
  • The change of nutritional habits, aimed at long-term aging.

MANAGEMENT, CONTROL, AND HANDLING OF EMOTIONS

From a scientific point of view, the analysis of thoughts and behaviors, that determine food intake, makes all the difference when it comes to weight control processes. In order for a person to modify and incorporate a healthy lifestyle, it is often not enough to show them what they can and can’t do. At Neolife, our team of dietitians-nutritionists are professionally trained to accompany patients in the process of changing their habits and lifestyles, in the long term.

ORTHOMOLECULAR NUTRITION

N_P_117Artboard 1 copy 9

Supplementing or complementing the diet is an appropriate strategy, for people with insufficient energy intake, people with poor eating habits, people who have increased energy needs, such as during pregnancy, deficiency situations to boost immunity, people who follow vegan dietary patterns, as well as special circumstances, where individuals have a significant limitation in the functions of digestion, absorption and/or metabolic disorders.

ENDOCRINE-METABOLIC AND HORMONAL BALANCE

Hormonal and metabolic imbalances begin after the age of 35-40, both in men and women, causing, among other symptoms, changes in body composition (gradual increase of fatty tissue and decrease of muscle mass and bone tissue). The proper diet alone, in some cases, would not be enough to solve and/or reverse these problems. That is why at Neolife, we study the patient in a comprehensive and individualized way, in order to provide the appropriate treatment for each person. We work on nutrition together with endocrine-metabolic balance and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), an avant-garde technique and one of the clinic’s programs, essential to managing these situations and improving the quality of life.

LONGITUDINAL MONITORING OF BIOMARKERS

To set realistic and tailored goals in any nutrition program,, wen must begin by measuring. Unlike other centers, at Neolife we take into account not only anthropometric panels or body composition, but also a series of biomarkers, necessary to assess the health, aging, and preventive measures of the individual as a whole. This provides us with very precise information,, that allows us to provide nutritional recommendations and training programs.

MANAGEMENT, CONTROL AND MANAGEMENT OF EMOTIONS

Nutrition consultations are complemented, if necessary, with nutritional coaching. It is a very useful and key learning tool that helps us achieve the proposed weight loss goals and improve lifestyle habits.

It allows us to adopt the attitude and determination necessary to achieve a change in their diet;through self-knowledgetechniquesit is possible to maintain motivation and seek resources in the patient, who even did not know he had. We work for and for the food reeducation of the patient. We carry out different types of follow-ups, adapting to the individual needs of each one. In them we teach, explain, guide and motivate the patient to learn to have established eating and exercise habits so that they last over time.

  • Coaching is a transformation process aimed at awareness, discovery and personal growth, allowing individual goals to be achieved, and, in this case, improving their relationship with food.
  • Mindfulness is defined as the ability to consciously pay attention to the experience of the present moment with interest, curiosity and acceptance, without judgment.

With the use of both disciplines, our professionals can recover the internal emotional balance of patientsand achieve their health goals.

ORTHOMOLECULAR NUTRITION

Another key aspect of Neolife nutrition is the application of Orthomolecular Medicine, defined by Linus Paulin, Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry: it is about “preserving health and treating diseases by administering the optimal amount of molecules that are necessary for the body and that are normally found in the body”.

This objective is achieved through the use of natural substances and elements in the form of food or supplementation, such as vitamins, trace elements, amino acids, prebiotics, coenzymes …, which restore the nutritional balance of the individual, allowing to neutralize toxic effects and improve quality of life.

ENDOCRINE-METABOLIC AND HORMONAL BALANCE

Metabolic and hormonal balance, as well as the presence of cardiometabolic risk factors and the specific needs of each individual., are key aspects in the regulation of each individual’s body weight.. Providing the patient with individualized nutritional guidelines and medical treatments specialized in hormone profile, it is possible to achieve your health and quality of life goals.

IN WOMEN: menopause is an important stage in a woman’s life characterized by a hormonal change that leads to natural physiological changes. It is one of the stages that favors the accumulation of fatty tissue and the decrease in endogenous estrogens. Basal energy expenditure decreases with age and this is generally associated with a progressive reduction in physical activity, with the consequent positive energy balance if intake is maintained.

IN MEN: in men, andropause is the term used to define hormonal changes in middle age, closely related to the aging process, where are frequent clinical manifestations: increase in body fat, progressive decrease in muscle mass, deterioration in general condition, sleep disorders, reduced neurocognitive activity.

Other endocrine-metabolic disorders,as polycystic ovary syndrome, dysregulation of the thyroid gland, or the disease picture of metabolic syndrome, are scenarios where changes in body composition become noticeable, weakness increases and, the fatigue, are produced skin changes and the deterioration of the general state of health.

Therefore, the other differentiating aspect is that the nutrition in Neolife is carried out within the framework of global prevention, relying in each case on the different pillars of preventive medicine.

MEASUREMENT AND LONGITUDINAL MONITORING OF BIOMARKERS
