Nutrition and Dietary Support A Balanced Nutritional State is essential for achieving and maintaining health! Using BOTH Chinese & Western philosophies, we are able to help our patients make changes in their dietary and nutritional habits with the goal to overcome illness, experience more energy and endurance, improve athleticism, improve and enhance reproductive health, improve metabolic function, achieve weight loss &/or maintain a healthy weight, and generally increase overall well-being. Chinese Nutrition & Dietary Therapy determines the energies & therapeutic properties of foods, as well as, takes into consideration such factors as method of food preparation, body type, season, & one's geographical location in determining the appropriate diet. Specific Chinese Dietary recommendations will be prescribed and tailored specifically to the patient's overall diagnosis. Nutritional Deficiencies and Imbalances: -Nutrients such as amino acids, enzymes, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes are the building blocks of the body. They provide energy, support metabolism, and are needed for many biochemical reactions to sustain health. Key nutrients may become deficient for various reasons, which may include: -Disease processes, which may block metabolism -Poor dietary habits -Physical, mental and emotinal stress When key nutrients become deficient, many metabolic processes are affected. The body may initially try to compensate for such imbalances. However, if these imbalances become prolonged, they may contribute to hormonal issues, metabolic disorders, increase in toxic load, oxidative stress, organ weakness, etc. Many symptoms such as tiredness, fatigue, and irritability may be effectively addressed with proper nutritional considerations. If you have Nutritional Imbalances, you may be experiencing any of the following: -Mental/emotional symptoms, including mood swings -Structural/musculoskeletal symptoms -Optical symptoms such as blurry vision, dry, red or easily irritated eyes -Symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, pain, etc. -Cardiovascular health issues -Hormonal Imbalances -Fertilty Issues -Others One of the most scientific ways to identify nutritional imbalances is via Blood Chemistry Analysis by a nutritionally trained doctor or healthcare provider.
