WAGS of SCI: The Podcast
WAGS of SCI: The Podcast - Ep.12 - Nutrition After Paralysis with Fatimah Fakhoury

Let’s face it – proper nutrition for your body after Spinal Cord Injury is a complete mystery – yet SO important. Your partners body is different, and there are so many secondary conditions to think about when it comes to proper diet, vitamins and meal planning. We wanted to help lessen the confusion when it comes to SCI and eating, so we brought in the help of Fatimah Fakhoury, a board licensed Nutritionist and Dietitian from New York City. Fatimah is a #QuadWife herself, and knows first hand the life of someone affected by paralysis. She is an incredible resource in our community!

In this podcast we examine nutrition after paralysis, and ask Fatimah YOUR questions about everything from eating for bowel health, to fad diets like Keto, to preventing UTI’s using food and appropriate nutrients – and eating for caregivers. This is a great podcast for anyone who wants to understand more about nutrition relating directly to SCI!
