Food As Medicine


“Let thy food be thy medicine,” according to one of the first physicians, Hippocrates. Questions about organic foods? Gluten-free diets? Dairy Free? Paleo? When and what to feed your baby? Wondering about fish oil and vitamin D? How can I prevent anemia if I am exclusively breastfeeding? During your well child checks we will be discussing prevention of diseases and how certain foods/supplements can optimize ones potential.

Perhaps more than anything else in our lives, the foods we regularly eat help determine whether or not we will become ill or remain healthy. Whether vegetables, fruits, meat, oils or grains, food contain influential substances including antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and much more.

The expanding field of Nutigenomics is devoted to study food influences gene expression; how genes play a role in disease development and prevention;
nutrient deficiencies and toxic chemicals in low-quality foods have an effect on human gene expression. Our experienced integrated nutritionist will work
with you individually to unlock these mysteries.
