Just because Dr Oz features a supplement on his show doesn’t mean it’s right for you! And, just because a product is natural doesn’t mean it’s safe. Our Clinical Nutritionist and other expert staff are trained to advise you, oversee your supplement regimen, and steer you on the right path.
Nutritional Counseling & Diet Planning
Our acupuncturist Chelsey Dodd, AP holds a second Master’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition. For patients wishing to lose weight, or simply clean up their diet, Chelsey will devise a plan to meet your goals. Her nutritional and weight loss plans include sample menus, recipes, shopping lists, and advice on which brands to buy at the grocery store. During your consultation, she may suggest blood work or other testing to determine your metabolic state, food sensitivities and level of inflammation in your gut. If you’re battling low metabolism or inflammation, diet alone won’t result in weight loss.
Cleansing & Detoxification
Cleansing can be done as a routine way to eliminate toxins from the body, or may be incorporated into a weight loss program. We offer whole body detoxification and metabolic cleanses, liver cleanses, GI (gastrointestinal) cleanses, and candida cleanses to meet your needs.
Nutritional supplements are an essential component of a healthy living regimen. There are many nutrients that we cannot get adequate amounts of through our diet. Vitamin D, Omega 3’s, and probiotics are a few examples. When used properly, nutritional supplements are powerful tools to help you maintain good health as you age.
Supplements are not regulated by the FDA, so it is crucial that you buy quality products with trusted sourcing for purity and potency. All too often, patients buy inferior products to save money, but the truth is that money could very well be wasted.
Suppose you want to buy turmeric because you’ve heard it’s good for inflammation. If you go to a drugstore, or even a health food store, a product may list simply “turmeric” as the ingredient on the label, and a serving may contain 200mg. Yet research studies show that turmeric has the best anti-inflammatory effect when the herb is standardized to contain 95% curcuminoids at a dose of 750mg. Our practitioners stay abreast of this research to ensure you’ll receive therapeutic benefit from your supplements.
We carry pharmaceutical grade supplements from Douglas Labs, Xymogen, Biotics, MD Prescriptives, and Premier Labs. This means that the vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, and other active ingredients have been tested for purity and potency and are the best quality available. We are constantly hand-selecting products that will give you maximum benefit at the best price.
