Nutritional Medicine

As individuals we all have our own special relationship with food, specific to our culture, tastes, family programming, and our psychology. We eat different foods, exercise at different rates and times, and consume different amounts of vitamins and minerals. We all require the same basic foods such as proteins, carbohydrates, fats and vitamins, minerals and enzymes; yet it is determining the right balance for each individual that constitutes a complete nutritional plan.

At Total Healthcare Naturally, we focus on the role of proper nutrition in relation to health. Given the individuality of patients' genetic disposition and the interaction of the environment, sometimes the universal recommended dietary allowances of nutrients could be inadequate. In fact the recommended daily requirements (RDA) are the minimum required intake to prevent deficiency states, so if we want optimal health our bodies often need a lot more than the RDA.

Clinical nutrition helps you to learn more about what you should be eating or avoiding, and the specific nutritional needs of your body to promote optimal health. At times this will involve simply some dietary changes, other times it will need to be a total revamp of your dietary habits, and supplementation to balance all of the systems in your body.

We will do an assessment of your diet, and also assess types and amounts of the nutrients using blood tests, urine analysis, and other tests for nutrient levels. Concepts from both nutritional therapy and diet therapy are then used to help patients achieve optimum health.
