“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human body, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
— Thomas Edison
Functional Nutrition is an emerging new specialty within the field of nutrition that compliments Functional Medicine.
Where Functional Medicine approaches the body from the perspective of treating the root cause of disease, Functional Nutrition looks at the foundational way that food affects your body at the cellular level.
Food is more than calories, in every morsel of food that you eat there are millions of molecules of information delivered to your body!
This information effects how your cells behave and how you feel.
Research shows that food can be your poison, especially if you make poor choices and are consuming foods that you are unaware of as harming your body.
On the other hand eating the right foods for your body is essential for both preventing illness and for recovering from disease. The right nutrients for example help you detoxify, sleep better, give you more energy and help overall well-being.
