Our bodies are exposed to everyday toxins in our air, water, food and even right in our own homes. Over time, those toxins may build up in the body and affect our overall health. Nutritional conditions affect our health when our body lacks appropriate amounts of vitamins and minerals or suffers an excess of sugar and bad fats (saturated fats).
Good nutrition to which anyone has adapted is both preventive and therapeutic. It prevents the diseases that will inevitably occur if the nutrition is deficient in quantity or quality, and if the diet that had made the people sick is corrected. However, even the best diet is not always adequate because the nutrition content of our food has been depleted, degraded, and contaminated by modern agricultural and food processing practices.
The countless substances’ chemical reactions occurred in cells and mitochondria determine human’s health and well-being. The substances referred to nutrients are required in optimum amounts for the proper chemical reaction. Nutrition provides the foundation for all the bodies’ metabolic reactions and restorative processes. The hormonal systems, the immune system, and the energy production system are dependent upon an adequate supply of nutrients. If the cells of the body are supplied with a less than optimum amount of any nutrient then the efficiency of the body will be impeded in some way. The internal bodily environment that weakens the immune system is due to a combination of multiple causes and conditions such as lack of proper nutrition and increase of deleterious substances. If the causes and conditions of disease are untreated even after removal of the disease symptoms, those are responsible for the high rate of disease recurrence and progression.

This holistic approach where the underlying physical, chemical and emotional stressors are supported to help the body reduce inflammation so the body can start to heal itself.
Nutrition program does not involve treating medical diseases or prescribing medications; rather we utilize homeopathic and botanical medicines, including vitamin supplements, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, nutraceuticals and glandular extracts, as well as diet modification and weight control to address the root cause of poor health and to support our patient’s overall wellness.
Nutrition program is nutrition based care focused on building health by restoring proper functioning in the body. Experiencing multiple symptoms is your body’s way of telling you that it’s NOT functioning optimally. Rather than covering up or suppressing symptoms with medications, nutrition program will evaluate symptoms and test to uncover the root CAUSE of the dysfunction. It requires a customized strategy to achieve and sustain optimal health.
