Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy stresses the importance of proper nutrients in one's diet to ensure optimal health.  It is believed by many experts that there is a definite link between poor diet and illness. Emphasis is placed on deficiencies of specific vitamins and minerals, detection of food and allergy intolerances, and factoring in enviromental influences on health as well. Recommended diets for certain conditions may be prescribed such as a detoxification program or vegetarian diet.
