“You are what you eat.” Nutrition is at the core of health and the naturopathic approach. How we eat, chew and digest, absorb, utilize, and excrete food helps us to understand how to remain healthy, avoid illness, and heal from conditions. Currently, 60% of Americans are overweight, 500,000 die annually from cardiac disease, 24 million have diabetes, and other issues associated with poor diets abound. Ironically, while so many are overweight, they are also undernourished based on the fact that many of us are eating high-calorie yet low-nutrition foods.
Nutrition does not have to be complicated. Naturopathic physicians are highly trained in nutrition and understand how foods affect basic biochemistry, mind chemistry, hormonal balancing, intestinal health, and inflammation in the body. By working closely with you and learning more about your diet, we can better ascertain what is helping and what is hurting your health. We will help you improve your diet and, when necessary, prescribe therapies so you can gain control of your health and diet; often, such modifications result in the ability to decrease or stop medications or even avoid surgical procedures.
Remember, it all starts with nutrition. If you don’t feel as well as you think you should, let’s figure out what’s limiting you from reaching your potential.
