Clinical Nutrition

LONGEVITY EFFECT

Clinical Nutrition

At Longevity Effect, we believe that the most effective way to treat ailments of the body is by uncovering the root of the problem. In this way, we can design an individual’s treatment plan to treat the cause of the health concern, not just the symptoms. In addition to sustainable chiropractic care and other functional medicine practices, we incorporate clinical nutrition as a way to treat many health concerns.

 

Our bodies respond in very specific ways to the nutrients we consume. For example, certain foods commonly cause inflammation, a primary cause of pain, while other foods reduce inflammation. Your body also responds to improper levels of crucial vitamins and minerals. Sufficient levels of these vitamins and minerals are not usually present in your daily food intake. As a part of your individualized treatment plan, we will often incorporate Homeopathic Remedies and Herbs. We believe that focusing on the nutrients that your body requires for healing will result in total body wellness.

 

Contrary to popular believe, Clinical Nutrition is not a standalone treatment. Both Dr. Brandon Washatka and Dr. Sarah Washatka incorporate clinical nutrition into their respective disciplines within the practice. They are strong believers in using natural and alternative approaches to heal the body from the inside out. Partnering with Longevity Effect in the pursuit of health will benefit you in every aspect of life.

Clinical Nutrition | Longevity Effect

Clinical Nutrition is commonly misunderstood. Most people wonder how Clinical Nutrition really works.

A Brief History Of Clinical Nutrition | Longevity Effect

Clinical Nutrition is used in conjunction with the many other services that are offered at Longevity Effect. Oftentimes, an individual’s body responds in negative ways to certain foods. In many cases, we find that our patients also have deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. These are crucial to the body’s natural healing process. Failing to supply your body with what it needs can cause inflammation, discomfort, or even more serious health conditions. Because of this, we believe that providing your body with proper nutrients as well as natural supplements will aid in alleviating numerous health concerns.

 

By incorporating clinical nutrition into your comprehensive treatment plan at Longevity Effect, you will be providing your body with herbs, vitamins, and minerals. The supplements you are given, along with the rest of your treatment plan, are designed to aid your body in reaching an optimal state of complete body health. Treating the underlying cause of a health concern or injury is the best way to achieve effective and long-lasting results.

 

During your initial visits to our office, Dr. Brandon Washatka or Dr. Sarah Washatka will often discuss your nutrition habits. This is because the habits you have established, both healthy and harmful, greatly impact the state of your health. In addition to this, harmful health habits can often inhibit the healing process. In this way, clinical nutrition works hand-in-hand with other types of medical treatment such as functional medicine, holistic medicine, and chiropractic care. Your individualized treatment plan will be designed to incorporate any area of medicine which we believe would be beneficial to your unique situation.

How do doctors assess a patient's specific nutritional needs?

Clinical Nutrition is extremely important, and the doctors who study and practice it have spent significant time educating themselves in order to help others on the path of natural health.

 

Doctors go through a training and accreditation process so that they are able to suggest changes in your diet based on the newest available information, along with their acquired knowledge of when to eat what foods, and what the results of those choices should be.

 

Some patients may decide to implement Clinical Nutrition on top of traditional medical treatment to help speed up the process of recovery and maybe even better the results.
