NUTRITION AND FITNESS FOR TOTAL WELLNESS

Good nutrition and fitness play a critical role in effective anti-aging integrative medicine and total wellness, regardless of age.  In fact, a proper diet and the right exercise go hand in hand to help create and maintain wellness. We work with you in both areas to determine your personal needs and then to customize a program to meet your goals.

DIET & NUTRITION

We believe that good nutrition increases your ability to stay healthy and feel youthful.  Helping you develop good eating habits is a crucial part of our anti-aging program.  Our 2 step program involves:  1) thorough diagnostic testing to determine your body’s deficiencies and excesses.  Tests include metabolic screening, cholesterol measurement, digestive system analysis, hormone tests, nutritional and metabolic profiling, lipid and omega 3 profiling and measures of body fat and lean body mass.  2) We develop a dynamic program, a custom food prescription based on your test results, specific to your needs and goals.

BALANCED NUTRITION & TOTAL HEALTH

Nutrition is defined as: the taking in and metabolism of food material whereby tissue is built up and energy liberated. (Stedman’s)  A nutrient is a substance needed by the body to maintain life and health.

Eating the right foods provides the fuel your body needs for energy, mental and physical health.  A balanced diet of “fresh living foods” bursting with live enzymes nourishes the cells that are essential to life itself.  A good diet coupled with the right nutritional supplements, balancing protein, carbohydrates and fats can effectively support your health and lifestyle with amazing results.  Our nutrition experts tailor your program to achieve the results you need…be it weight loss, maintaining muscle mass and energy or a solid anti aging nutritional approach.

FITNESS, EXERCISE & TOTAL WELLNESS
