What is Clinical Nutrition?

Are you suffering from the effects of nutritional deficiencies or imbalances? Nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes are the building blocks of your body. They provide energy, support metabolism and are required for many biochemical reactions to sustain health. Key nutrients may become deficient for various reasons.

Clinical nutrition focuses on disease prevention and chronic disease management.

Why are You Deficient?

Key nutrients may become deficient for various reasons:

When key nutrients become deficient, many metabolic processes are affected. The body may initially try to compensate for such imbalances. However, if they are prolonged, they may contribute to hormonal issues, metabolic disorders, increase in toxic load, oxidative stress and organ weakness. Many symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, and irritability may be effectively addressed with proper nutritional considerations.

Clinical nutrition aims to establish a clear picture of any existing imbalances in your body and hence should be the foundation for any effective and comprehensive health regime. Before formulating a diet/supplementation plan, Dr. Autoimmune utilizes laboratory assessments to establish your current health status.

Every day, billions of molecules from different sources enter our body though voluntary or involuntary ingestion. These chemicals come from food, beverages, medicines, personal care, additives, and toxins in the environment.

Whenever a system- whether living or mechanical- becomes polluted, normal functioning becomes affected. Excessive pollution in a system may result in malfunctioning or serious degeneration of that system. You might have experienced this occurrence with the mechanics of your car. Every so often you need to change your oil, air filter, etc., in order to keep the system clean so the car will run efficiently and prevent a breakdown. That is why when your car’s engine needs repair, the mechanic first cleans the engine before any attempt to fix it.

Detoxification nutrition programs work to enhance and support your bodies’ natural ability to detoxify substances that it creates along with the overwhelming toxins that it faces every day. Therefore, detoxification programs are used to rid our system of toxins and enhance our organs’ ability to better absorb nutrients and improve biological functions, which, in turn, accelerates the healing process.

Healthy detoxification is of utmost importance in a variety of medical conditions and therapeutic procedures. The first step is to detox!

Leaky Gut Support

The small intestines are a large portion of the gut, spanning 20 feet long. Its surface area is comparable to a tennis court! This is where most of the nutrients from the digested food is absorbed into the bloodstream. Over time, the factors that impair digestion (environment, state of being, nutrient density, assimilation) lead to intestinal permeability. This is when the small intestine walls are worn down by the undigested, putrefied and toxic food. These toxic substances enter the bloodstream and contribute to widespread inflammation, leaky gut, food sensitivities, and more stress on the immune system leading to autoimmune disorders, Diabetes Type 2, and more.

Leaky gut is one of the three common factors found in all autoimmune diseases. Healing leaky gut is imperative for managing autoimmune conditions.

Gut healing refers to the nutrition and supplement protocols we recommend to help reverse the process causing intestinal permeability. We aim to improve stomach acidity, enzyme production, fat digestion, reseal the junctions of the small intestine, and improve bowel movements and motility. In supporting these fundamental functions of the digestive tract we aim to reverse inflammation.

Weight Loss Results Through Optimizing Biochemistry

Today, we are facing an epidemic of obesity and chronic disease unheard of in any culture’s history. Over 65% of all Americans are overweight and weight loss has become a multi-billion dollar industry.

A healthy weight is important for good health and feeling good about yourself. If you’re like most people, you’ve tried every diet plan out there and maybe you’ve lost a few pounds here and there, but chances are, you’ve gained them all back – multiple times. This is because when weight loss is the sole focus, there are often root causes that remain overlooked. There is typically a biochemical metabolic reason that must be addressed in order for you to reach your ideal weight and stay there.

After uncovering your current health biochemical imbalances, understanding your own individual body type, and by having all your body’s systems in balance, losing and maintaining healthy weight can actually be quite easy and effortless. Most of our patients are surprised by how readily their bodies shed weight once they are introduced to the correct diet for their individual body.

Our customized nutrition protocols are designed to first and foremost for you to reach optimal wellness, which will lead to you reaching your optimal weight.
