Nutrition is a way of using food and supplements to encourage the body's ability to naturally heal itself. It does this by detoxifying the body; correcting vitamin and mineral deficiencies; restoring healthy digestion; developing a positive attitude.
On your first visit to the office, we will ask you questions about your medical history, dietary choices, family history, menstrual history, digestion, energy levels and exercise habits. This will assist your physician in recognizing any nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, toxic overload, or general nutritional concerns.
In addition, we may advise you to take a hair analysis, hormone testing, food allergy tests, heavy metal screening, digestive bowel studies, etc. in order to get a better understanding of your current health status. Specific foods will be recommended that you can eat, while other foods may be suggested to avoid. A dietary plan suited to your needs will be recommended along with vitamins and supplements to encourage your body to heal itself.
