Designed Nutrition for Your Personal Needs

Have you read about certain vitamins or minerals that are good for you but are confused because “what’s good for you” changes all the time? Are you carrying around grocery bags full of vitamins but unsure if they are working for you? I understand your confusion and want to help. I can help you with a personalized health and nutrition program. This program will be custom designed for you.

The whole food vitamin supplements that I use in my office are nature’s own medicine whose purpose is to give your body the nourishment it needs not only to function optimally but also to help your repair and rebuild itself. The body is a self healing organism and is designed to be well! Wellness is our natural state.

How do I know what your body needs? I use a detailed health history form plus I do a comprehensive health exam that incorporates the body’s own neurological reflexes to help me identify your body’s health priorities and needs. These reflexes convey information on energy flow and vitality (or lack) for every organ and function of the body. I am not looking for diseases but functional imbalances that are preventing you from feeling good.

With the information learned from the health exam, I am able to make detailed and specific nutritional recommendations for you. This eliminates confusion surrounding what supplements you should take. I may also ask you to keep a food diary because even the best nutritional program can be derailed with a poor diet.

It’s important to distinguish between “over the counter” vitamins and whole food vitamins. “Over the counter” vitamins are synthetic, dead chemicals created in a lab and are only fractions of the vitamin. Vitamins are living complexes that contain cofactors, enzymes, phytonutrients and mineral activators in them that allow the body to process and use them. Because “over the counter” vitamins are only fractions of vitamins, they lack these synergistic components. Since your body can’t process the fractionated vitamin without the synergistic components, your body has to supply them. This can result in further depleting your body and essentially robbing it of what it needs to function.

It’s important to remember that the body is dynamic and ever changing. Also, as the body is increasingly nourished with improved function, your body’s needs may change. Therefore, it is important to be monitored on a regular basis.
