The old cliché that you are what you eat is truer now than ever.
Our food is littered with artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, pesticides, herbicides, and various biphenyl and PCBs, and much of it is genetically modified. Most diseases and medical conditions have a nutritional component. Gallstones, kidney stones, headaches, gastro-esophageal reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, depression, cancer, hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, arthritis, infertility, gynecological problems, osteoporosis, and acne are only a few conditions strongly influenced by diet.
We believe in the use of food as medicine and that nutrition is a key part of all healing regimens.
Another area concerning nutrition is obesity, which has reached epidemic proportions. Our staff works to assist you in achieving a healthy body composition and we have several weight loss programs available. Please see the section entitled “Weight Reduction” for additional information of our several programs.
Food sensitivities and food allergies are also a growing problem. We can work with you to undergo a GI Detox and or an elimination diet. The goal is to heal the GI tract and to determine which foods should be eliminated from the diet for some period of time. For those who need to be gluten or dairy free, or desire to be on the Paleo Diet, we can work with you to create menus and meals the entire family will enjoy.
