Treatment Methods and Approach
During the consultation, a nutritional analysis is done to optimize the patient's proper level of proteins, carbohydrates and fat to live, grow and function properly. Only with a wide variety of diverse food can we provide the right amount of nutrients for good health.
Based on an extensive physical exam, followed by an in-depth blood test, we often detect low levels of many vitamins and minerals, the two main types of micronutrients. While we only need these in small amounts, they play a crucial role the regulation of metabolism, heart rate, cellular pH and bone density.
Relying on the blood test's results, hormones are analyzed to treat body functions, from basic needs such as hunger to complex systems like reproduction, emotions and even mood. Hormones are special chemical messengers in the body created in the endocrine glands: understanding them and their role will help patients take control of their health.
Analyzing urine and feces can give crucial information about the patient's gastrointestinal system and general health. Beneficial bacteria in the digestive system are largely responsible for the critical functions of the body’s immune systems. They can affect the body’s vitamin and mineral absorbency, hormone regulation, digestion, vitamin production, immune response, and ability to improve overall, including mental health.
