Sometimes it is difficult to evaluate what is happening within the body without bloodwork, therefore we have the ability to draw blood within our office in order to gain a greater understanding of each individuals health. The blood panel is just one element of our Wellness Panel, within the Wellness panel we also evaluate the toxic metals within your hair, elements of a urinalysis and stool sample. By cross-corilating all of these results we can then form a clear picture of your health on a metabolic level.

Nutrition is the provision, to cells and organisms, of the materials necessary (in the form of food) to support life. Many common health problems can be prevented or alleviated with a healthy diet.
The diet of an organism is what it eats, which is largely determined by the perceived palatability of foods. Dietitians are health professionals who specialize in human nutrition, meal planning, economics, and preparation. They are trained to provide safe, evidence-based dietary advice and management to individuals (in health and disease), as well as to institutions.
A poor diet can have an injurious impact on health, causing deficiency diseases such as scurvy, beriberi, and kwashiorkor; health-threatening conditions like obesity and metabolic syndrome; and such common chronic systemic diseases as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
Our office carries a full line of high quality nutritional supplements from over 10 companies; from these we can find the perfect supplement for your body!
