Dody Chiropractic is a holistic wellness center that takes a “whole person / whole body” approach. One of the ways we implement this is through Functional Nutrition.
At Dody Chiropractic Center for Wholeness, we perform Functional Nutrition Blood Work, and from the results, we can provide customized holistic recommendations to address your individual health and nutrition needs. The ultimate goal is not only to reduce any existing issues but to prevent future ones, allowing you to live a happier and healthier life!
What is Functional Nutrition?
Functional Nutrition is based on the idea of Functional Medicine. It is a unique way of treating and preventing illness by addressing the whole self, not just the symptoms. We look to get to the underlying cause of your symptoms, not just mask the symptoms.
For example, say you went to visit your doctor because you were experiencing flu-like symptoms. They might send you home with a prescription and check in with you after a few days.
But with Functional Nutrition, our doctor tries to address why you developed these symptoms in the first place. Was it stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, or some combination of those things? The doctor would then try to address those underlying issues considering all body systems.
The goal of Functional Nutrition is not only to reduce or eliminate any existing issues but to prevent future ones.
Functional Nutrition is a highly personalized plan for health. It is all about using food as medicine and high-quality, holistic remedies, mainly to increase health and wellness.
