“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” ― Hippocrates
The best foundation for health and disease prevention is good nutrition. The use of whole organic foods and nutritional supplements in a health-promoting diet can help to prevent the onset of many chronic diseases, maintain optimal health, and manage existing chronic illness.
Clinical Nutrition is a form of natural, holistic, integrative and functional medicine that utilizes food as medicine in the prevention, management and diagnosis of pathology and seeks to apply nutritional changes toward patient health and wellness goals.
Clinical nutrition applies a study and analysis of an individual’s food consumed in relationship to their health and well-being to educate the patient and form necessary healthful diet approaches to create nutritional guidelines or regimen to improve health naturally.
Clinical nutrition is grounded in disease prevention, health maintenance, and general wellness.
Clinical nutrition can be used in primary health care, preventative healthcare, and chronic disease treatment plans.
“Leave thy drugs in the chemist's pot if you can heal the patient with food.”
