We are highly trained in Functional Medicine and Clinical Nutrition

Beyond the general applications of how diet affects your health and well-being we look at how well your diet is providing the optimum nourishment for your health.

You may benefit from a specialized diet tailored to your particular body chemistry and genetics. Your diet that can slow the aging process, improve energy and vitality, reduce your inflammation, ward off diseases such as cancer, diabetes, stroke and heart disease to name a few.

We recommend advanced laboratory testing for accurately assessing what your nutritional and dietary requirements are for realizing your maximum health potential. This targets specifically the specific nutrients your body is lacking, your recommended amounts of the nutrients and foods containing that nutrient. Advanced testing also saves you from taking supplements that your body does not need!  

Immune system diseases may be triggered by food particles in your diet penetrating the lining of your intestine and causing your own antibodies to attack your own tissues. This can result in Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Celiac, Neurodegenerative Diseases, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Cardiac Disease and over 52 others.

Pesticides, herbicides, chemical exhausts and byproducts from our food, air and water can build up in your body and rob you of your health and vitality. How would you know without the cutting edge science behind our clinical laboratory testing? View the short informative video The Gut-Brain-Immune Connection for more information.
