What is nutritional medicine?
Nutritional deficiencies are responsible for many imbalances and medical conditions. That’s why nutritional medicine focuses on replenishing your body with essential nutrients and minerals. By doing that, nutritional therapy helps restore balance and alleviate issues caused by those imbalances.
Dr. Johnson offers dietary counseling and education about food pairings that boost nutrient absorption. After the initial scans, she can recommend foods, supplements, and nutritional preparations to restore your body’s balance and achieve optimal health.
Do You Have a Question?
How Does Nutrition Affect My Health?
Proper nutrition is vital if you want to achieve optimal health. What you eat affects your energy levels, metabolism speed, hormone levels, inflammation status, and immune system.
A poor diet and lack of activity can contribute to:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Cardiovascular disease
- High blood pressure
- Certain cancers
- Degenerative bone disease
How Can I Eat Healthier?
Nutritional science focuses on finding the best approaches to eating healthy and maintaining optimal health. It is complex and requires a lot of time to discuss different aspects. So instead, we want to give you three quick fixes you can do today to improve your nutrition.
Buy unprocessed food
Processed foods contain chemicals and refined ingredients that are harmful to our bodies. Instead, you should base your diet on whole vegetables, fruits, legumes, grains, and nuts, as they give our bodies exactly what we need.
Eating too much sugar, especially refined sugar, wreaks havoc on our bodies, causing damage to your metabolism, insulin resistance, weight gain, and liver overload. That’s why you should reduce the amount of refined sugar in your diet, and you’ll see a tremendous change.
USDA organic certification means that a particular food is grown without using artificial pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemicals. That’s why buying and eating organic food should be among your top priorities.
What Conditions Benefit From Proper Nutrition?
Your body needs proper nutrition for optimal health and functioning. However, some medical conditions require dietary adjustments, and Dr. Johnson can recommend nutritional remedies to help manage the symptoms. That includes:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Autoimmune disorders (fibromyalgia, lupus, etc.)
During a nutritional consultation, Dr. Johnson will ask you about your current eating patterns, your goals, and how you can use nutrition to improve your health. For example, she may recommend avoiding certain inflammatory foods if you have an autoimmune disorder or limiting carb intake if you have diabetes.
