Optimal nutrition is more than the food we need to get by. Nutrition gives our bodies the components necessary to build and maintain health and resistance to disease. Even marginal deficiencies can, over time, compromise our ability to resist diseases and to function our best.
Diet and Nutrition form the building blocks of healthy cell function and are the foundation of natural medicine. Therefore, I evaluate your unique metabolic type and recommend the appropriate food and diet to achieve and maintain optimum health, a strong immune system, a sharp mind, stable mood and normal weight.
Most people do not consume an optimal level of nutrients in their daily diet. Many conditions such as cancer, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, arthritis, inflammatory bowel syndrome, acne and eczema, menstrual distress, and migraine headache, respond very well to changes in diet and food choices. Patients with chronic illness can see dramatic changes in their conditions, decreases in symptoms, and return to health by following a personalized dietary plan.
There is an expanding body of knowledge that supports the use of whole foods and nutritional supplements in the maintenance of health and treatment of disease. Nutritional therapy focuses on using a plant-base diet and nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. When necessary, I recommend high quality nutritional supplements to provide optimal levels of vitamins, minerals and co-factors to create and support a high level of function. By providing all of the nutrients needed by our cells every day, we build a strong system and are able to prevent illness, regain health, and slow down the aging process.
