What Is Functional Nutrition?

fruits and veggies

Few people realize the true effect our lifestyles have on our overall health!

Poor diet (nutrient deficiencies and chemical toxicities) and lack of movement (exercise) are the leading causes of premature aging and chronic disease including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmunity,hypertension and other disorders.

In addition, there are thousands of people suffering from: Diabetes, Crohn’s disease, IBS, Multiple Sclerosis, GERD, Hashimoto Thyroiditis, Arthritis, Allergies and many other conditions which can be helped through the use of dietary changes and supplementation.

At Core Therapies we offer a unique program that can be defined as Functional Nutrition. It is a clinically proven method of analyzing

  • your lifestyle habits
  • your overall symptom pattern
  • your diet and exercise routines and
  • other tests including blood panels and salivary indexes to create a specific nutritional treatment that meets your needs.

This program is completely tailored to you based on the initial consultation and a variety of tests we perform. The recommendations will change over time as your symptoms and function begin to improve. The purpose of this therapy is to improve your quality of life!

The truth is, the body will do everything it can to heal itself. We just need to help create a healing environment with the proper resources and nutrients. With functional nutrition programs we are able to show people how to improve their health, not just control their symptoms with medications. Many of our patients choose to work with their medical doctor and reduce their long-term pharmaceutical drug use.

With the proper modification of diet and exercise, you can rebuild and maintain the integrity of your immune system, your digestive system, your nervous system, and your endocrine system resulting in a reduction, or entire elimination of the symptoms from many disorders we often assume cannot be healed or controlled. When you make proper and scientific lifestyle choices, you can prevent many chronic illnesses and/or decrease their negative effects if you already have them.

These conditions include diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, irritable bowel syndromes, food allergies, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases, cancer, ear infections, frequent colds/flu, and many others.
