Medical Assisted Nutrition

what is good nutritional health?

Sometimes when you think you eat right, you exercise enough … things still feel “off.” Sometimes your body needs a little help and the only way to find that out that is to get some tests done. At the Osteopathic Center, we can perform specific testing to identify your individual deficiencies and health challenges.

Eight times out of ten when people go to see a doctor, it is because they have a chronic condition. Simply throwing a pharmaceutical in the mix is often not not able to resolve the body’s issues long-term. The human body is a very complex and elegant entity. It takes detective work to find the missing pieces of the puzzle that could ultimately be the key to getting your health back. For example, nutrition is not emphasized in medical school curriculum, so it is not often talked about in the typical doctor’s appointment. But nutrition can be a huge piece of the puzzle and we ignore it at our peril — diabetes, obesity, heart disease, Crohn’s disease, and many other chronic diseases are rooted in nutritional deficiencies.

At the Osteopathic Center, we can measure “what’s in your gas tank” and often identify what is needed to give your body the tools to get to a healthier level.

Nutrition is the process of taking in food and using it for growth, metabolism, and repair. Problem is, the kinds of edibles many people eat today simply don’t supply enough quality “gas in the tank” for those jobs. And in time, that catches up with people. Did you know that at least 75% of Americans are thought to be deficient in vitamins C and D; and the minerals magnesium, zinc, and iodine?

Feel a cold or flu coming on or just generally run down? A nutritional IV called a Myer’s Cocktail is full of vitamins and immune boosters that can often help your body get on top of things again fast.

According to reports from The Lancet’s Global Burden of Disease, poor diet now generates more disease worldwide than physical inactivity, alcohol, and smoking combined. Malnutrition is rampant; we eat a lot of calories but don’t take in a lot of minerals, vitamins, enzymes, phytonutrients and other gifts from nature the human body needs to stay healthy.

With testing, we can get a much clearer picture of where you stand and what steps to take to get back to a healthier you.
