Nutrition & Wellness Q & A

How does nutrition impact your health?

We are made of almost 30 trillion cells doing millions of chemical reactions daily. Our body is made of hundreds of nutrients and many of these are missing in our highly processed, cold storaged and highly cooked food. Every cell in your body is composed of and runs on nutrients from your food, and everything you eat has a direct impact on your immediate and future health. If the nutrients are missing in our diets, the cells start to starve and eventually will fail or not perform at their optimal being.

Heavy meals especially high in carbohydrates can cause roller coaster in energy in the short term and blood vessel arterial damage in the long run.

Your food intake also affects your weight and risks for chronic disease. Poor dietary habits increase your risk for:

  • Obesity
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Mood disorders
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Certain cancers
  • Poor self image

Overeating, undereating, limiting food groups, and eating unhealthy foods can all be problematic. Make an appointment today to learn about proper nutritional and supplemental nutrients with help from your experts at the Anti-Aging & Wellness Center.

Which nutrients are vital for health?

Our bodies need both macronutrients (fats, proteins and carbohydrates) and hundreds of micronutrients to operate at their peak performance.

Macronutrients

Food is composed mostly of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. We need a proper balance of all three to meet the demands of our bodies. Body is made of mainly fats and proteins and very little carbohydrates, and our diets should resemble that.


Micronutrients


Vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and several nutrients are vital to our bodily systems and cells. Since food is lacking in many nutrients for many patients, most people will benefit from several supplements to make up for dietary deficiencies.

What nutritional therapies are offered?

The experts at the Anti-Aging & Wellness Center emphasize holistic methods to improve your health, including nutritional therapy. They help you establish healthy eating habits and replenish inadequate stores of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to restore your optimal health.

The practitioners at the center offer the following services to improve your nutrition profile and prevent disease:

  • Dietary and lifestyle counseling
  • Herbal and nutritional supplementation
  • Intravenous (IV) and Injectable (IM) therapies
  • Detoxification therapy

These services are based on scientific advances in nutritional medicine and the ancient premise that food is our primary form of medicine.

Which nutritional therapies are right for me?

Your doctor will perform a thorough health assessment and panel of tests to evaluate your nutrition profile. The doctor can perform SECA, the ideal way to check your body composition. In proper weight loss, it is important to only lose fat mass and not muscle mass. The doctors can help you decide which nutritional therapies and exercises are right for you based on the results of those assessments and other factors like:

  • Your goals
  • Level of activity
  • Allergies and intolerances
  • Food preferences
  • Your level of participation

Your practitioner discusses the advantages and drawbacks of each protocol and encourages you to take an active role in treatment.
