Nutritional Medicine Q & A

What is nutritional medicine?

Nutritional medicine focuses on replenishing your body’s nutrients and minerals to help it function properly. Since underlying nutritional deficiencies are responsible for specific medical issues, fixing those shortcomings helps alleviate those issues.

Dr. Johnson starts the replenishment process with food and supplements; she may provide nutritional remedies as well. She also educates you about food pairings that aid nutrient absorption.

How does nutrition affect my health?

Proper nutrition allows your body to operate at peak performance. What you eat affects your hormone levels, your ability to fight disease, and your body’s inflammation levels.

Over time, poor nutrition and exercise habits can contribute to:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Degenerative bone diseases
  • Certain Cancers

How can I eat healthier?

The subject of proper nutrition extends far beyond the pages of this website. However, you can make a few simple choices today that contribute to a healthier diet.

Choose organic

USDA-certified organic specifications state that foods must be free of chemicals and pesticides. Organic options allow you to prevent those harmful chemicals from entering your system.

Buy unprocessed food

Processed foods contain chemicals and refined ingredients that our bodies don’t recognize. On the other hand, foods like whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains give our bodies what they need to work.

Limit sugar

Excess sugar in the body, especially from unnatural sources, causes damage to your metabolism, insulin resistance, weight gain, and liver overload. Cutting back on the amount of refined sugar in your diet keeps your system humming.

What conditions benefit from proper nutrition?

The condition of your entire body benefits from proper nutrition. However, some issues respond favorably to dietary adjustments. Dr. Johnson uses diet and nutritional remedies to help you manage:

  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune diseases (e.g., lupus and fibromyalgia)
  • Allergies
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Migraines

During a nutritional consultation, Dr. Johnson sits down with you to discuss your outcome goals, your current diet, and ways to improve your health through nutrition. For example, she may recommend adjusting your carbohydrate intake if you have diabetes or limiting inflammatory foods if you have an autoimmune disease.
