What is Functional Nutrition?
Functional Nutrition via Science Based Nutrition™ is an innovative, science-based look at nutritional strengths and weaknesses through an individual’s blood test as well as other objective diagnostic tools. This objective approach can offer a clear plan for determining and monitoring nutritional recommendations.
The first step in your road to better health is a consultation. We will determine what objective tests would be most beneficial in your case.
Then we will combine these results with other diagnostic tools, we are able to perform an in-depth analysis of your body.
This analysis will outline any problem areas, minor & major conditions that, if left untreated, may lead to serious illness, disease and more.
Your detailed report will clearly explain specific dietary, lifestyle and nutrient recommendations based on your individual results.
Food Sensitivity Testing
Medical research has shown that sensitivities to food and food-chemicals can be involved in a wide array of painful symptoms and chronic health problems
Sensitivities are types of inflammatory reactions that is entirely different than food allergy and most doctors are unaware they are different
If foods and additives in your diet are contributing to your illness, whatever medications you take will ultimately fail because they only mask the symptoms. They don’t treat the underlying cause of the symptoms – hidden inflammation caused by sensitivity reactions to foods and food-chemicals
And as is too often the case, many medications have side effects that can lead to other health problems
What Is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is safe, minimally discomforting and often an effective technique for patients with certain musculoskeletal presentations. A thin monofilament needle penetrates the skin and treats underlying muscular trigger points for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.
Dry needling treats muscle tissue, and its goal is to reduce pain, inactivate trigger points and restore function. Dry needling can be used for a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues, such as shoulder, neck, heel, hip and back pain. While research indicates dry needling is a safe and effective approach for treating and managing pain, some insurance companies may not reimburse for the procedure.
