Nutritional Assessment

Foods are our building blocks. Only the chemical elements from foods can rebuild cells and correct defects in cells. That old saying “you are what you eat” may be starting to resonate with you. The right kinds of foods build tissue, and when a sufficient amount of building has taken place, the body heals itself by virtue of natural laws.

Each one of us is a unique individual based on our genetics and lifestyle. Nutritional requirements must match our biochemical individuality and be precise in quantity and balanced in intake to achieve ideal weight, promote optimal health and improve the way we feel.

A nutritional assessment will include a dietary history and daily food intake questionnaire. The need for testing is determined on a case-by-case basis. Metabolic type evaluation or biochemical laboratory tests might be suggested to determine the unique biochemical needs for your body, identify deficiencies or excesses of vitamin, mineral, essential fats and amino acids, or determine allergenic foods. The health of the mucosal membrane may be assessed to reveal absorption strength and integrity of the digestive system lining.

Following assessment, a therapeutic nutritional protocol is created consisting of diet suggestions and supplementation for proper metabolic function. Testing for and avoiding allergenic foods may be necessary.

We can develop a program for the management of weight, diabetes, cholesterol, hypertension, Syndrome X, fatigue, menopause, yeast overgrowth or constipation, as well as nutrition for special needs like IBS, constipation, food allergy, gastritis, ADHD or PMS, among others.
