Nutritional/ Digestive Therapies
Nutrition and the food a person puts into their body plays a large part in their health condition. As we meet with each new patient we perform a metabolic test to determine their metabolic type. From these results we determine what diet will be most suitable to you the patient and ultimately what will help you to be the healthiest. There is a lot of information that is scattered about what food is the best for you and what fad diet might be playing out right now but the reality is there is no one diet for everyone.
There are three main types of metabolism or way the body takes in energy and they are grouped in thirds. One third of the population needs lots of green vegetables and should have minimal meat or animal proteins, one third of the population that needs a balance of meat and veggies and the last is the third of the population with the fastest metabolism which needs to eat meat in general at about every meal. At Equilibrium Natural Health our starting point with everyone is diet as it is your poison or your best healthy energy source 3 times daily.
Help with Food Allergies and Sensitivities
We advise patients on a diet that help manage food sensitivities or allergies. We perform patient food sensitivity tests to identify foods that cause digestive inflammation, irritation and other reactions; dramatic or subtle. Trigger foods vary as each person is different. When it comes to food sensitivities many are not aware of what foods cause reactions for them. As patients learn to avoid these foods they can see their reactions dissipate. We also determine a patient's metabolic type through the metabolic test. Results from both tests help us define a tailored diet allowing their digestive system to react less.
Nutrition Response Testing
We perform tests to determine the nutritional needs of the patient. This technique analyzes systems of the body that correlate with different points on the body's surface. From what we see in the patient's bodily response we can determine what nutrients are needed to heal those areas of the body that are deficient.
