Clinical Nutrition is concerned with the relationship between diet and disease. Nutrition is a cornerstone of naturopathic medicine. Many medical conditions can be treated more effectively with dietary changes and nutritional supplementation than they can by other means. Many of the chronic health problems that plague people today are the result of poor dietary and lifestyle choices. Illnesses such as diabetes, depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease, cancer and gastrointestinal problems develop as a consequence of the food we choose. Naturopathic Doctors help patients make better food choices and a complete nutritional program may also involve vitamin, mineral, and enzyme supplementation. By changing our diet and adopting a healthy lifestyle, we can often change or reverse the course of an illness and restore health.
“Let your food be your medicine and medicine your food.” ~ Hippocrates
