Nutritional Consults and Functional Food Supplements
"You are what you eat" is a wise-old saying repeated by many who recognize the connection between nutrition and health. Nutrition impacts what diseases you may or may not get. We eat a healthy diet to feel great and have lots of energy, but do we consider reversing disease and treating our illnesses with nutrition or functional food supplements? This is the field of nutritional medicine, a growing area of medicine that is positively influencing the agricultural and food industry practices in America.
In our office, our doctor performs nutritional evaluations that measure precise nutrient deficiencies, i.e., amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. These are highly sophisticated biochemical tests using a single, fasting blood and/or urine sample. These nutritional tests also measure the degree of oxidative stress in our cells and the metabolic efficiency of our cell’s energy production. Our doctor interprets the test results and develops an individualized treatment plan for each patient. Our selection of functional food supplements are researched and tested by certified GMP laboratories and are based on years of clinical experience and scientific studies. Implementation of the treatment plan for each patient is facilitated by our certified nutritional consultant and office visits include a one-on-one consultation designed to maximize compliance.
