Functional Nutrition

What is Functional Nutrition and How Can it Help You?

Functional nutrition is an approach to health that takes the body as a whole into consideration. When there is a lack of health functional nutrition looks for the root cause or main contributing factors. Objective tests are used and may include blood, saliva, stool or muscle tests in addition to a comprehensive history and physical exam. Once the results are analyzed the doctor creates a detailed plan to help support the function of the involved systems. Interventions can include supplements, dietary and lifestyle modifications.
According to the National Health Council a chronic condition is a disease lasting three months or longer. Currently chronic diseases affect approximately 133 million Americans, more than 40% of the population. This number is estimated to grow to 157 million Americans by 2020 with many of those having multiple conditions. We are constantly bombarded with choices, choices of what to put IN and ON our bodies and HOW to respond to situations or stress. The easy options are often the worst for us in terms of how they impact our health. We catch ourselves reaching for the soda or energy drink instead of water and a 10 minute walk outside, or reacting angrily to a stressful situation instead of taking a moment to let emotions settle. Functional nutrition helps people learn to choose the healthier options and develop healthier habits.
