Nutritional Counseling & Supplements
Food is medicine and the most effective way to heal is from the inside out. That makes what we put into our mouths on a daily basis the most important choices we can make. Many disorders of the stomach and intestines, not to mention autoimmune issues, stem from our diet.
According to Oriental Medicine, each food has a specific function in the body. Foods are classified by their thermal temperature and tastes which have different therapeutic actions to balance and heal the body. Certain foods are selected depending on the individual's constitution, pattern of disharmony, and diagnosis.
Due to our current over-use of pesticides, herbicides, and other toxins sprayed onto our food supply and diminishing the minerals in our soil, using natural vitamin/minerals and supplements are a necessity to help the body reach optimal health. It is critical to utilize only the highest quality pharmaceutical grade supplements. This type of supplement is manufactured in a lab that is certified by the FDA and these products are available only to licensed healthcare providers. Since the FDA does not regulate the supplement industry, care must be exercised to use products from reputable companies or licensed practitioners that carry only the best. The word or concept of “natural” does not mean it cannot harm you, nor does it prevent deceptive marketing. It is important to work with Professionals trained to treat your individual needs. Supplements can include vitamins, minerals, nutrients, homeopathics and both Chinese and Western herbs.
