Whole foods plant-based diet therapy has been central to Chinese medical practice since at least the 21st century B.C.. This consists of providing your body with the nutrients it needs to heal itself, using high quality, nutrient-dense whole plant foods and whole-foods based supplements when/if necessary.
The body is designed/adapted to obtaining nutrients from complex whole foods. These are the basis of functional nutrition therapy.
Chinese (Taoist) medicine recommends that your daily diet consist of grains (preferable whole grains), beans, vegetables, seeds, nuts and fruits for prevention and treatment of disease and maintenance of health.
As a general rule, we recommend that whole grains and starchy vegetables provide the base and main fuel of a health-promoting diet, while non-starchy vegetables, fruits and microbial products provide critical micronutrients.
As mentioned, the body is designed/adapted to obtain nutrients from whole foods, not isolated chemicals found in most supplements. The latter can add to the toxic load and create imbalances.
Concentrated whole foods supplements supply the body with vitamins, minerals, and accessory compounds in forms created by Nature.
We provide our patients with individualized whole food recommendations based on clinical evaluation of your signs and symptoms with physical examination.
We can also evaluate blood test results when additional clarification is needed. We are trained to evaluate such tests, but don't order blood tests ourselves. You can bring us tests that you have had ordered by other providers.
