How can you achieve your optimal health and wellness?
Clinical nutrition applies nutrition therapeutically considering your individual nutritional needs with the goal of your optimal health and wellness. Conventional therapies typically address symptoms, rather than the true underlying issue in the body. A clinical nutritionist can help you customize and define your individual nutritional palette, taking into account your unique health profile. Nutritional therapy can allow you to flourish in an imperfect world, rather than simply sustain you.
Optimal health and wellness is experienced when the body functions in balance. Many variables take us off course from this path – our lifestyle, the content of the foods we eat and the continual changes our bodies’ experience over time are a few. Supporting your unique nutritional needs allows your body to function effectively and efficiently and maintain a balanced state of health and wellness.
“Like a pebble in the water, ripples are created by everything we introduce to our bodies. As a clinical nutritionist I understand the ripples, and more importantly the pebbles which create them. Nutrition is a vast supply of pebbles we can use to affect those ripples- creating ones we desire and eliminating ones we don’t.”Learn More
Lifestyle & Food
Complicating our attempts to achieve health and wellness, the world we live in and our lifestyles increase our bodies’ demand for specific nutrients needed to fuel “detoxification” pathways, yet our food sources are less nutrient dense due to soil depletion, sterilization, processing and cooking practices. Specific nutrition protocols can support the body’s natural detoxification processes.Learn More
You are Unique
It is important to understand that everyone’s optimal health and wellness varies, just as our genetic makeup, age, environment, commitment level and other factors differ so will our individual health and wellness. With clinical nutrition, your nutritional protocol is individualized and considers your body’s unique metabolic needs.
Body Changes Over Time
With the passage of time our bodies change, challenging our biochemistry to react to these changes and adapt without affecting our health and wellness. Though in most cases our bodies are able to adapt and keep moving forward, this progression does not occur seamlessly and we often experience adverse effects in the process. Using nutrition therapeutically can help your body re-achieve its balance so that you may experience true wellness free of adverse health complications.Learn More
Did you know the majority of your immune system is tied to the gastrointestinal system? Key to optimal health is healthy gastrointestinal function. With numerous food sensitivities and intolerances, GI disorders and high stress lifestyles, gastrointestinal dysfunction is sadly quite common. Gastrointestinal integrity and wellness is key to a strong immune system and achieving optimal health and wellness. A key focus of nutritional therapy is to support healthy gastrointestinal function.Learn More
Beyond Symptom Management
Often common medications are relied on to manage chronic symptoms, yet never really move us any closer to true health and wellness. Some commonly used medications may also lead to undesirable secondary effects such as nutrient depletions, gastrointestinal disturbances and further burdens to our bodies’ detoxification pathways. Nutritional therapy may be used cooperatively and may even reduce reliance on conventional medications.
