Much of the nutritional and dietary counseling in my office centers around individualizing a lifestyle based on a person’s body type, genetics, lifesyle, symptymotology, family history, and present symptoms and complaints. Over the 26 years of practise, I have discovered many ways to help patients make the transition towards a healthy lifestyle that supports the movement towards a vital, energetic and symptom free life. Many patients have cured their type 2 Diabetes. To change one’s food choices is a process, yet often patients comment at our 2nd visit that their energy is improved, that their foggy thinking is gone and that they enjoy the food that they are eating, and the changes they are seeing in themselves.
I also work extensively with food allergy identification and elimination. Food allergies can cause obvious problems or they can be much more subtle. If you have a health issue (asthma, eczema, migraines, A.D.D./A.D.H.D.), food allergies will almost always worsen the overlying condition by increasing inflammation, preventing the natural healing response.
Allergy testing is generally done via elimination and challenge diets or through a laboratory generated blood test known as an ELISA panel. Specific dietary plans for conditions such as autoimmune, diabetes, high cholesterol, weight loss and many other conditions are addressed at my clinic.
