Natural Health, the Paleo Diet and Targeted Nutritional Supplements
As a San Antonio Clinical Nutritionist with a natural health point of view, my approach to health care is unique. First, REMOVE anything causing the body stress and harm. Second, ADD high quality foods, supplements and other support to help the body repair itself. All living cells want to live and be well – our job is to remove impediments to progress and offer the nutrients needed to fix things.
“Food First” is my basic guideline, as what we eat and drink is our biggest piece of controllable chemistry. So, first upgrade to a Paleo Diet (my Diet For Human Beings) to get enough protein, fats and vegetables. This will stabilize your blood sugar and immediately improve mood, sleep, attention, weight gain and food cravings.
Second, we look at lifestyle issues such as lack of sleep, stress levels at work, anxiety, and exercise choices. These must be changed if you expect your body to reverse its downhill slide!
Third, eliminate foods which you cannot tolerate, such as sugar, dairy, gluten and other starches. This reduces pain and inflammation in the body, allowing the intestines to heal and produce more immune fighters and neurotransmitters. There are many Paleo Recipes offering gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free options.
Fourth, reduce toxicity levels, balance hormones using bio-identical hormones, and fight chronic infections. This is where you need focused guidance from a Naturopathic practitioner. As an Integrative Nutritionist, I find and follow state-of-the-art natural health information to help show you the path to better health. Whether you have Celiac disease, diabetes, auto-immune issues or need weight loss, this approach works! Welcome!
