Healthy Nutrition for a Healthy Life
Clinical nutrition is easily defined as creating a dietary plan for a healthy life. Naturopathic medicine promotes the importance of using nature to heal and the food you eat plays an integral part of that well-being. An individual’s diet plays a large part in their ability to stay healthy and can also play a part in helping cure ailments such as acute illness, cardiovascular disease, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Our physicians are well educated and can speak to the many types of diets out there including Mediterranean-style diets, Paleo, Atkins, and Specific Carbohydrate Diet. We will also help create customized dietary plans seeking to reduce digestive and intestinal inflammation..
