Personalized Nutritional Assessments
Personalized Nutrition recognizes that each person is a biochemical individual. This means that each person has a biochemical uniqueness. We make nutritional recommendations to match with a person’s individual variability. These health recommendations are nothing new and have uncovered a way of eating based on 100,000 years of forensic anthropological studies from cultures around the world focusing on the level of health and longevity enjoyed during their lives. Biochemical individuality means we are all unique individuals with different health needs. The net sum of our unique metabolic imbalances is expressed in our current level of health.
Your Blood Type and Genotype
Your blood type not only determines what foods you should eat and how you should exercise, but it also determines your energy levels and the efficiency with which you “burn” calories. Although there are four blood types-O, A, B and AB-it would be an oversimplification to suggest that there are only four types of people in the world.
The reality is far more intricate and complex. Subtyping your blood type provides even greater specificity. An additional set of simple genetic tests further individualize your needs and formalize a final diet plan for you. The final product is a 38 page diet plan telling you the foods you CAN eat, with helpful recipes. No two diets are exactly the same. Additionally, we provide the types of exercises that will benefit you most to help you maintain good health and appearance.
When it comes to diet one size DOES NOT fit all, which is the dogma advanced by diet gurus, governments and agribusiness corporations. Eating for your blood type and genotype answers the premier question at the heart of dietary problems: “Why do some people do better with certain foods than others?” For some people a paleolithic diet can re-establish an overall sense of health and well being. For others, it can leave a person feeling lethargic and mentally agitated with digestive problems and high blood protein levels. Discover how eating for your blood type and genotype can provide powerful individualized opportunities for better health.
Our health assessment also focuses on the fundamental physiological processes which include:
- Oxidative-reduction imbalances.
- Cellular communication
- Bioenergetics- the transformation of food into energy
- Replication, repair, and maintenance of the entire body’s structural integrity
- Detoxification and the elimination of waste
- Protection and regulation by the immune system
- Transport and circulation of nutrients and hormones
Our Integrative Functional Medicine approach also looks at environmental and dietary factors that can contribute to nutritional deficiencies, which can leave a person feeling sub-optimal, lacking vitality and other negative issues. Oftentimes this can be attributed to a change in body chemistry where nutritional deficiencies occur as a result of taking prescription drugs.
