“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

Hippocrates

Few people fully realize the major role nutrition has in their health and wellbeing. Your diet is the ammunition your body needs to fight injury and infection, so being mindful about how you eat is often a key part of effective healing.

Today more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise. At Functional Health we partner with you to create healthy eating habits to boost your overall health. For more information, call the office or request an appointment online.

 

Why is nutrition so important for healing?

Even when you’re at your best, good nutrition is key to looking and feeling good. However, when you’re sick or injured it becomes even more vital. Following a diet of healthy grains, lean proteins and lots of vegetables play an important role in the healing process.
When fighting infection or inflammation, your body expends a lot of energy to heal itself. It’s important to take this into account when planning your meals. In addition, pain or discomfort can make it difficult to get excited about eating, especially healthy foods.

What steps can I take to improve my nutrition?

The team at Functional Health can help you make real improvements in how you fuel yourself. From small dietary tweaks to more comprehensive nutritional planning, Functional Health is invested in providing the guidance and support you need.

As part of this effort, our team offers our patients the medically supervised weight-loss program 8 Weeks to Wellness. This program is used by doctors worldwide and is effective for both men and women.
Combining the insights of this program with the accountability and support of the doctors at Functional Health means that you receive both a guide and a roadmap to weight loss.

What about nutritional supplements?

Nutritional supplements can be a good way to give your diet a healthy boost, but choosing the right ones can be tricky. Nutritional supplements aren’t subject to the same regulations and oversight as medications. Some supplements can be ineffective or contain ingredients other than what is promoted on the label.
At Functional Health, our team trusts and recommends the NutriDyn line of products who have multiple GMP registrations, organic, and non-GMO certifications.

NutriDyn helps boost everything from cardiovascular health to Muscle, Bone & Joint Health to Blood Sugar Balance and are available for sale at Functional Health. Ask for more information to find the right one for you.
