Here at First Step, we adopt a multidimensional approach to treatment. We believe that Nutrition in conjunction with Therapy will augment an individual’s Emotional and Physical Health enabling them to function better and make healthier lifestyle choices in both their personal lives and professional careers.
A healthy symbiotic relationship between Therapy and Nutrition should coexist and be considered when evaluating a person’s Emotional and Physical Health. Science and Research is heavily weighted in support that Nutrition is a key factor that affects Brain Health and Physical Wellbeing. First Step Therapy & Wellness is a strong proponent of science that is rich in evidentiary value and the facts are indisputable that Social and Emotional Wellbeing along with Diet and Exercise have a direct impact on Brain Power & Physical Health.
