Nutritionist Offers Free Talk on Sports Nutrition and Injury Prevention
Kristine Bahr, of Cutting-Edge Wellness, will offer a free talk on sports nutrition this month. The presentation, “Enhance Your Workout; Stay Free of Injury,” will be held from noon to 1 p.m. on February 9 at Get in Shape for Women, in Brookline.
Bahr’s talk will discuss supplements, food and guidelines to enhance athletic performance and promote good health—and stay injury-free. Participants will receive handouts to help individualize their workout plans.
Bahr is a clinical nutritionist and counselor with offices in Brookline, Great Barrington, East Boston and Pittsfield. She specializes in identifying the underlying issues and imbalances that contribute to people’s health challenges. Such factors include nutritional deficiencies, food sensitivities, heavy-metal burdens, genetics, hormonal imbalances and bacterial, yeast or parasite problems in the gut.
“I am uniquely trained to detect these root causes of many medical problems, and I can help people to avoid unnecessary supplements and medications that may adversely affect their health and pocketbooks,” says Bahr. “Most insurance companies now pay for this kind of testing, which allows clients to have their own individualized treatment plan.”
