We're entering the great debate.
When it comes to nutrition, there is a lot of information out there that can be overwhelming and confusing. At Treeo, we believe in taking a well-rounded approach to health and wellness, which includes considering the role of diet in overall health. While some diets may be marketed as "the best," it's important to remember that everyone's nutritional needs are unique. In addition, diets can often lead to unhealthy eating patterns and mindsets, and we are not in the business of encouraging them. These days, it seems like advice regarding diet can fit into one of two boxes: eat lots of fruits and vegetables, or follow X diet for X results. None of these resources talk about the downsides of following a diet long-term, or go into specifics about why you should prioritize eating certain foods.
So no. We don't believe in dieting.
At Treeo, we treat disease through a preventative medicine lens. That involves addressing lifestyle, as well as other social determinants of health that contribute to heart disease.
We do, however, believe in the power of lifestyle and its ability to reverse certain chronic conditions. We will always encourage focusing on nutrient-dense foods above following a macronutrient-restricted eating pattern. Depending on the chronic condition, eating certain foods over others can prove to be highly beneficial and can lead to dramatic results. There is no one-size-fits-all approach that works for everyone. While some diets may have benefits for certain individuals, they may not be appropriate or effective for others. It's important to approach diets with a critical eye and to consider the potential long-term effects on your overall health and well-being. We'll share our thoughts on specific diets, such as keto, in a separate article.
At Treeo, we treat disease through a preventative medicine lens. That involves addressing lifestyle, as well as other social determinants of health that contribute to heart disease. Lifestyle medicine has been proven to be an effective approach for treating and preventing heart disease. This type of medicine involves making healthy lifestyle choices, like increasing fiber intake, getting regular exercise, reducing stress, and avoiding tobacco and alcohol. By implementing these changes, individuals can significantly improve their cardiovascular health and decrease their risk of heart disease. Moreover, lifestyle medicine can also help to reverse the effects of heart disease by promoting the body's natural healing processes and improving overall health and well-being. Depending on the individual, the plans we develop contain specific changes that target a member's independent risk factors.
Whole, plant foods provide winning results.
Research has consistently shown that choosing more whole plant foods can reduce the risk of various chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. These findings, along with the observation that individuals living in blue zones tend to follow a similar dietary pattern, emphasize the potential benefits of consuming whole plant foods. At Treeo, we take things a step further to increase your chances of reversing chronic disease. We believe that by incorporating these foods, alongside of other lifestyle changes, we can eliminate the chances of experiencing chronic disease in the future. We're working on this by developing technology that will provide us with the right data to offer highly specific advice and help individual visualize their long-term health.
By utilizing our powerful cocktail of technology, community, and preventative medicine, we aim to help individuals achieve greater longevity and overall well-being. With the support and guidance provided by Treeo, making the transition to a healthier lifestyle can be a smooth and sustainable process.
