We see many patients who have never had any nutritional guidance and, as a result, are dealing with the onset of conditions caused by too much processed food and not enough quality nutrition in their diets. We understand the biochemistry involved in metabolic processes and conditions, and work with patients to achieve rapid results with lasting, long-term benefits.

Nutritional and Illness

Many illnesses have been found to have nutritional components.

Consider the following examples:

  • We know that many people who deal with thyroid disease, fibrocystic disease, hormonal imbalances, and some forms of cancer, may experience these conditions due to deficiency in the nutrient iodine.
  • Vitamin D deficiency has been seen in a large number of people and tied very strongly to conditions such as diabetes, immune deficiency and cancer.
  • Zinc is an underlying concern for people with acne, immune deficiency, and anorexia.
  • Magnesium deficiency is widespread and is related to conditions such as osteoporosis, muscle cramping, and immune deficiency.
  • Vitamin B12 deficiency has been assosiated with various conditions such as fatigue, neurological diseases, asthma, and depression.

We become nutritionally deficient because of poor nutritional intake, adulterated and depleted foods, and difficulty absorbing nutrients due to underlying digestive problems. It is strongly believed that nutritional deficiencies are connected with the majority of illnesses we see day to day.

We can test for nutrional status with standard laboratory testing and state-of-the-art testing alike. For example, organic acids can be assessed using a simple urine sample. What we learn from these and other laboratory tests allows us to individualize a treatment program for you.

We provide therapies which include the use dietary modification, nutritional supplementation, and intravenous and intramuscular nutritional supplements. These treatments can help the body to recover from illness and establish a foundation for optimal health.
