Nutrition & Weight Loss at Integrated Health Clinic.
Eat well and boost your body’s ability to fight disease.
Supporting your body’s natural immune system is pivotal to the success of any main stream or integrative treatment program. Through the management of diet and the educated use of natural supplements, your body’s immune system can be engaged as a primary treatment mechanism in the fight against disease. The physicians and practitioners at Integrated Health Clinic possess the knowledge and experience to guide you in understanding your body, understanding its unique capacity for healing, and understanding what works for you as part of an individualized treatment regimen.
Patients will receive guidance from our Naturopathic Doctors specific to addressing your individual needs. Not all illnesses behave the same and consequently, diet plans need to be adapted to target the idiosyncrasies of each circumstance and the immune system boosting needs of each patient. Integrated Health Clinic physicians will take the time to help you understand this difference and implement a plan that is right for you.
Diet and your immune system play as big a role in prevention as they do in treatment. Naturopathic medicine is as much about preventing disease as it is conquering it. With a focused diet strategy, your immune system and your whole body can be strengthened to better ward off illness.
