Nutritional Counseling

“The Doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.’
-Thomas A. Edison

The goal of acupuncture care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Each food also has a medicinal property if used correctly. Example: Did you know that organic eggs contain every essential vitamin, mineral, and amino acid with the exeption of vitamin C?

Nutritional counseling can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Are you taking food based or synthetic supplements? We can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
We can assisit in conditions such as:

  • Sustainable Weight Loss
  • Eating Disorders
  • Gastrointestinal Disorder
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Infant, Child and Adolescent Nutrition
  • Reducing Inflammation
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Low Energy & Fatigue
  • Hormone Balancing
  • Prenatal & Postnatal
  • Fertility
  • Wellness & Beauty
  • Health at Every Size
  • Sugar Addiction
  • Sports Nutrition

One of the benefit for using supplement is to accelerate healing using nutritional supplements made only from whole food concentrates.

Standard Process Supplements: The Original Whole Food Supplements. At Optimum Health Acupuncture and Wellness we use primarily Standard Process supplements for nutritional patients. With a history dating back to 1929, Standard Process is the first company to make American grown organic, whole food supplements designed for nutritional healing.

The use of organic, whole food nutritional supplements is a vital part of the healing process for our patients. By the time most people come for treatment, their bodies are already in a weakened and battered state. The correct application of nutritional supplements gives their bodies the raw building blocks that it needs to repair itself.
