It may sound cliché, but it's true. You are what you eat. Unfortunately, what most Americans eat are processed, nutrient-poor foods. From packaged microwavable dinners to greasy fast food, ours is a culture dangerously lacking in proper nutrition. Heart disease, stroke, diabetes and even cancer are all linked to our neglect of a healthy, balanced diet.
Yet the key to nutritious eating goes beyond simply knowing what not to eat. The combination of fresh foods, herbs, vitamins and minerals best for you depends on your own unique set of circumstances. After all, you could have serious deficiencies that are responsible for medical complications, now or later down the road. So identifying and addressing those deficiencies right away is essential.
Here at Southwest Integrative Medicine, we can help you create a personalized diet plan - no temporary remedy for just a few weeks, but a complete lifestyle change so full of variety and good nutrition that eating at least three balanced meals a day will be easy and enjoyable too.
Beyond food recommendations, our doctors help you go a step further. Though changing to a healthier diet is essential, sometimes lack of proper nutrition takes such a detrimental toll on your body that you need solutions with more immediate results. IV nutrient therapy and vitamin injections can be especially effective, both of which our doctors are specially trained to provide.
