If the body has certain hormonal and dietary deficiencies, then it can not perform the proper functions needed to maintain optimal health. Due to the natural aging process and lack of quality foods in the average american diet, there is a mass epidemic of diseases and health concerns within our nation. Many people suffer from toxic overload caused from the by products that are put in our foods such as synthetic hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, and processed chemicals. These toxic burdens and dietary deficiencies can lead to an array of health conditions.
We can also help you create a weight loss program. After discussing your personal goals we can determine what program is best suited for you. As most people have heard a balanced diet is essential to your health, but even a healthy diet can't usually counteract years of hormonal imbalances within the body. We can help address these hormonal imbalances that most people suffer from as they begin to age. Natural bio-topical hormone cremes may be recommended to help balance out the natural hormone levels and allow your body to begin producing these hormones on its own. Information on creating a healthy balanced diet will also be discussed during your course of treatment. Due to the toxic burden created by many of our foods, we often have trouble losing weight and staying healthy. If this is the case for you, we may chose to start your 30 day weight loss program. We will determine which hormones and foods may be contributing to your weight gain and inform you on how we can help you lose that stubborn belly fat.
When you come in for a nutritional consultation we will go over your typically daily diet. We will try to determine what foods may be causing issues within your body. Often times people have been eating certain food allergens unknowingly for years without realizing they are causing problems. Food allergens are considered any food that causes an allergic reaction inside the body. These reactions can present as mild symptoms such as hives, eczema, nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain, runny nose, and sneezing. More severe symptoms may present as shortness of breath, drop in blood pressure, chest pain, weakened pulse, loss of consciousness, and trouble swallowing due to swelling of the throat and tongue. The 8 main food allergens that account for 90% of all food related reactions include dairy (lactose/casein), wheat (gluten), eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, fish, and shellfish. Our goal is to help you identify these allergens and eliminate them from your diet.
Another form of nutritional support we provide is through the use of dietary supplements. We use organic whole food based supplements that give your body the proper support needed. These supplements can help to stabilize and correct the vitamin, mineral, and nutrient deficiencies within the body. Because no two people are the same we will come up with a nutritional program that is tailored towards your individual needs. Often times we will tweak your supplement regimen through the course of treatment as we notice different changes within the body.
This process of improving your overall health through nutrition is a team effort. We will give you our best recommendations and it is up to you whether or not you want to follow through with them. Dietary habits are often hard to break in the beginning, but they are sometimes needed in order to get you back on track to great health. We are here to help you through this process and give you guidance along the way.
