Proper nutrition forms the foundation on which good health can be built. Many conditions can be improved through changes in diet alone. Others respond well to supplementation of specific nutrients. Food intolerance testing is also an important choice for patients.
Historically is the first cornerstone upon which Naturopathic Medicine was first established and there is good reason for this.
Proper nutrition forms the foundation upon which good health can be built. Without proper nutrition and good digestion the body is being set up as a breeding ground for pathogens and disease. Without proper assimilation of nutrients through a strong digestive tract, health cannot be promoted or maintained.
Agribusiness and modern farming practices leave our foods more depleted than ever, making supplementation a viable alternative. Many conditions can be improved through changes in diet alone while others respond well to supplementation of specific nutrients. As Naturopathic Doctors we are trained in how to use specific diets or fasts as cleansing as well as for what might be the optimal diet most suited to you.
There are dietary changes that can really help with diabetes, weight management, insulin resistance, leptin resistance, arthritis, inflammation and many more health concerns. Food testing can be used to help pinpoint problems as well.
For instance, one of the dietary regimes utilized is the Metabolism Reset Diet which may benefit people with fatty liver as well as other abnormal test parameters, while also helping to ‘reset’ the metabolism and help in maintaining a healthy weight.
