Functional Nutrition emphasizes the importance of high quality foods and phytonutrient diversity, meaning plenty of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, to address clinical imbalances and move individuals toward the highest expression of health.
We’ve all heard “eat more vegetables”, but when it comes to Integrated and Functional Medicine, applying very specific diet recommendations, teaching people advanced nutrition and incorporating powerful herbal remedies can seriously boost the healing process and set you up for a lifetime of health.
Most people feel their diet is relatively healthy, by placing a cup of vegetables on their plate. In reality they are unaware of how the other foods they are eating in large quantities like gluten, dairy, high carbohydrate items, packaged foods, are harming them and creating regular inflammation. Sadly, new cutting-edge nutritional advances rarely make the news, in fact old health myths are still being circulated, and conventional medicine does not keep abreast of emerging nutritional science.
Our advanced nutrition assessment, at the core of Functional Medicine, includes looking far deeper into the nutritional needs of the individual, by running specialized testing that goes well beyond just your standard blood panel, to treat the unique biological make-up of the patient and address their specific illnesses. Once testing results are reviewed, your practitioner can create a highly personalized therapeutic eating and supplement plan to correct deficiencies that are most likely causing the illness or energy drain and then help you to promote optimal health by adapting new lifestyle changes.
These advanced practice skills are essential for preventing and managing today’s chronic disorders and is one of the reasons our protocol is so comprehensive. Here at Carpathia Collaborative, our Master’s level nutritionists each bring these skills along with unique areas of specialty in various diet modalities. Learn more about them.
