Discover the benefits of a dietary therapy plan that’s customized to suit your needs

Good health starts with a wholesome diet. It only makes sense that fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins — nutritious foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals — can improve your well-being. Unfortunately, many modern diets are filled with processed foods that are loaded with sugars and trans fats. These empty calories can cause rampant inflammation throughout the body, which means they may be contributing to your underlying health issues.

Alternative medicine treats the body from a holistic perspective, in which each system is invariably and inextricably linked to all of the others. One of the many facets of alternative medicine is dietary therapy, a complementary treatment method that involves examining the diet more closely to determine how much it may be contributing to a patient’s mental and physical dysfunction. If you’ve been struggling with a chronic condition for years without making much progress in your recovery, dietary therapy could be the linchpin of your entire treatment plan.

The foods you eat have a direct impact on your health. By making a few careful adjustments to your daily diet, you can reduce inflammation, allowing you to experience less pain, and enjoy more energy.

Dietary therapy is a customized treatment approach that can involve a variety of strategies depending on your individual needs. It could mean avoiding gluten or cutting dairy out of your diet. It could also mean adding a green smoothie to your daily meal plan to increase the amount of fiber you receive. Regardless of which changes are recommended for your health needs, focusing on fresh foods, and eating those foods more mindfully, is always a good idea.

Dietary therapy can be used alone, or in tandem with a variety of other alternative therapies. For instance, if you’re suffering from a sports-related injury, dietary therapy may be recommended in addition to acupuncture to help reduce inflammation. Similarly, if you’re struggling with a digestive disorder, like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), dietary therapy can be advised in conjunction with dry needling and herbal medicine to improve your symptoms. Addressing your health concerns from several angles at once allows us to treat your condition more effectively.

The prospect of changing your entire diet can be overwhelming. But, often, only small dietary changes are needed to produce tangible results. Identifying which foods are contributing to your health woes and avoiding them can result in a dramatic improvement in your symptoms in a surprisingly short amount of time. Of course, avoiding the wrong foods is only half of the picture. Eating the right foods is equally important, as it provides your body with the raw materials it needs to fight inflammation, prevent disease, and promote healing.
