Nutritional Medicine

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, stated "Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food."

At Cape Porpoise Integrative Health, in conjunction with your physical history, we'll also go through an in depth diet history.  We'll discuss how what you're eating may be radically influencing your health and how we may adjust your diet to improve your health. 

 

As an example, your microbiome (the microorganisms that that exists in your intestinal tract) is strongly influenced by the foods we eat and this in turn, can have direct effects on your digestive health. This, in turn, may then influence the potential risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, anxiety, depression, and even Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.  

 

There are numerous additional ways, however, changing your diet may influence your health and mitigate disease acquisition.   Please call today to see how customising your diet will improve your current health and prevent disease.
