Nutrition

Nutrition is the science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food, in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of an organism. It includes food intake, absorption, assimilation, biosynthesis, catabolism and excretion.

The diet of an organism is what it eats, which is largely determined by the availability, processing and palatability of foods. A healthy diet includes preparation of food and storage methods that preserve nutrients from oxidation, heat or leaching, and that reduce risk of food-born illnesses.

Nutrition should help balance the internal body chemistry (homeostasis), so your body can adapt to its constantly changing external environment. I advocate whole food and whole food supplements for my patients. My exam involves the patient history, observation, a systems survey questionnaire, and food intake diary for one week. I then progress to reflex and/or pulse tests. Traditional lab work may be utilized. For those with more intricate problems, there is now genetic nutritional testing.
Group presentations are available by appointment.
