Nutritional therapy optimizes your body’s ability to find its natural balance and to function at its highest level by adjusting the foods you eat, the foods you avoid and nutrient supplementation. This combination of food intake changes and nutrient supplementation enhances your life by improving your mood, energy levels and vitality, in turn allowing your best self to emerge. Because your metabolic needs are unique, nutritional therapy is individualized.
Since you only have one body, it is crucial that it is fueled properly to run efficiently. Although the damage you may be creating within your body from improper nutrition may not be immediately obvious, illness and disease may become part of your aging process. Think about it this way: putting unleaded fuel in a diesel car’s tank contaminates the fuel delivery system resulting in damage to the engine.
Conventional wisdom says that weight gain, fatigue and chronic disease are part of the natural aging process. In reality, many of these symptoms are simply the result of your body giving up after consistently defending itself against poor nutrition, stress, and environmental toxins over the course of your lifetime.
Many chronic health disturbances are positively affected by nutritional therapy including, but not limited to:
- Gastro-intestinal issues (IBS, IBD, Crohn’s disease, GERD)
- Low energy/fatigue
- Weight gain
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol)
- Metabolic syndrome
- Autoimmune disorders (Rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, Hoshimoto’s)
- Food sensitivities/allergies
- Parkinson’s disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Weakened immune system
