What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy focuses on the basics of nutrition to help improve your nutritional status.  Many health problems result from weakness in the body’s physiological foundations due to poor nutrition.  A key to enhancing your health through nutrition is recognizing the uniqueness of each individual’s body chemistry.

At Spinal & Sports Care, our goal is to help you work with your body to function at optimal levels.  This starts with improving your body’s digestion.  If you cannot digest the food you eat, you cannot absorb the essential vitamins and nutrients you need to be healthy.  It is not “you are what you eat,” but “you are what you absorb.”

Nutritional therapy can utilize many tools, most notably diet and supplementation, to help you feel better and enhance your energy.  Sometimes a simple dietary change or supplement can make a world of difference!
