You have heard it before. You are what you eat. That is only partially true. You are what you are able to digest. That means, what you are able to absorb from your intestine determines your health and wellness. Many people have intestinal issues: bloating, heartburn, constipation and diarrhea. These conditions can be signs of inadequate enzyme production or inflammation affecting the function of the intestine. Eating foods that you may be sensitive too, can affect the health of the colon.
The standard American diet does not provide most of us with nutrient rich food that nourishes our body. Many of us have nutritional deficiencies. Our office offers nutritional testing and therapies to help you achieve optimal health and wellness. These include nutritional assessments with blood and or urine to determine if you are deficient in vitamins and other nutrients. Based on this testing, we will recommend the most appropriate diet for you as well as targeted supplementation specific for you.
Having optimal nutrition can support your body’s ability to produce hormones:adrenal, thyroid and sex hormones. Before starting any hormone replacement, you should make sure that you have optimized your nutrition and detoxified your body.
Some of the testing offered includes:
- Body Bio Wellness Report
- ALCAT Food Sensitivity testing
- Red blood cell Fatty Acid tests
- Oxidative stress testing
- Testing for prediabetes and insulin resistance
Some of our nutritional therapies include B12 shots and energy shots. We also offer parasite cleanses and liver detoxification programs. Gluten sensitivity seems to be more common. Eliminating gluten can help improve bowel function and total body inflammation.
