A BIOCHEMICAL AND NUTRIENT APPROACH

The body and brain are made of nutrients not magic substances or drugs.  We approach health conditions

by looking at the underlying causes of the problems, and how to correct biochemical imbalances with

nutrients.

WHAT IS “MEDICAL NUTRITION THERAPY”?

MNT is defined by the AMA medical CPT code book as:

“Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is the assessment of nutritional status followed by nutritional therapy.

The nutrition assessment includes review and analysis of 1) medical, nutrition and medication histories, 2)

physical examination, 3) anthropometric measurements, and 4) laboratory test values.  Nutrition therapy

may include 1) diet modification, 2) counseling and education, 3) disease self-management skills training,

and 4) administration of specialized therapies such as medical foods, intravenous or tube

feedings.”  [American Medical Association, Current Procedural Terminology code book.]   [CPT Codes:

97802, 97803, 97804.]

ADDITIONAL SPECIALTIES

OPTIMAL HEALTH

Focus on achieving optimal health through proper diet, supplements and lifestyle.

(1) DIET: Eat an individualized diet based on your taste preferences, digestive capabilities, food allergies

and intolerances, nutrient needs, lifestyle, biotype, and any disease conditions.

(2) SUPPLEMENTS: Take individualized supplements based on your nutrient deficiencies.

(3) LIFE-STYLE: Learn about food supplies, contaminants, meal timing, exercise, and sleep.

ANTI-AGING

Counseling to: (1) Identify genetic, aging and disease patterns in your family;  (2) Detoxify;  (3) Eat an

optimal diet;  (4) Control health conditions with needed supplements;  (5) Balance strong and weak

endocrine glands;  (6) Regenerate mitochondria for optimal organ function and energy;  (7) Exercise to

build muscle and bone;  (8) Promote healthy vibrant skin inside and out.

AUTOIMMUNE CONDITIONS  

Testing, diet modification and nutritional support for: Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis,

fibromyalgia, Crohn’s, Addison's Disease, Sjorgren's Syndrome, endometriosis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.

Integration of nutritional, digestive, and food allergy factors.

CARDIOVASCULAR

Cardiovascular risk-profile testing.  Counseling for lifestyle change.  Diet modification and nutritional

support for heart and vascular disease, hypertension, high blood cholesterol and triglycerides, inflammatory

factors, and clot risk factors.  Also see mitochondrial function.

DERMATOLOGICAL

Diet modification and nutritional support for acne, rashes, eczema, hives, slow-healing wounds, chapped or

scaly skin, and other skin problems. Evaluation, testing, and therapies for skin-related diet factors,

including dietary components, food allergies, and nutrient deficiencies.

DETOXIFICATION

Diet and nutrient support includes: aid liver Phase 1 & 2 detoxification; neutralize acidosis and free-radical

damage; reduce inflammation; eliminate water retention; release toxins from fat cells; release heavy metals

from brain; neutralize toxic halides in thyroid; avoid food allergens.

DIABETES & HYPOGLYCEMIA

Diet modification and nutritional support for blood sugar control.  Testing for: glucose, insulin, leptin,

adiponectin, thyroid and adrenal hormones, 5 B-vitamins, 6 trace minerals, and lipoic acid that play key

roles.  Metabolism therapies: diet, exercise, supplements.  Also see mitochondria.

ENDOCRINE & HORMONES

Testing, diet modification and nutritional support for: fatty liver disease, gall stones, disorders of the

thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, pineal, pancreas, thymus, and gonads.  Also fat-cell hormones (adiponectin and

leptin).  Diet and supplement therapies.

IMMUNITY

Testing, diet modification and nutritional support for balancing poor immunity, including: Chronic Fatigue

Syndrome, chronic recurrent flu, colds, virus, yeast, fungus, Candida albicans, & bacterial infections.

Testing for immune factors: antibodies, T-cell balance, and allergies.

MITOCHONDRIAL FUNCTION

Diet modification and nutritional support for Mitochondria.  These are the tiny batteries in the cells that

produce ATP energy.  They are vital for all organs, especially heart, muscles, and brain.  They decline with

age, and can be damaged by toxins, allergens, infections, and inflammation.

MUSCULO-SKELETAL

Diet modification and nutritional support for osteoporosis, osteomalacia, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid

arthritis, fibromyalgia, joint, muscle & ligament disorders.  Testing for related nutrient deficiencies and food

allergies.  Also see mitochondrial function.

nutrients for menopause, adrenals, thyroid, hot flashes, fatigue, insomnia, HRT.

WEIGHT LOSS

Diet and supplements for weight loss.  Includes:  (1) calorie control, (2) exercise for muscle gain, (3)

supplements for fat loss, (4) balancing metabolism, (5) and detox, appetite control, meal timing, food

allergens.  Lab testing for metabolism factors: leptin, adiponectin, thyroid, adrenals.

WEIGHT GAIN: Anorexia or Malnutrition

For the chronically underweight, malnourished or anorexic.  Testing for metabolism factors, hormones, and

nutrient deficiencies.  Supplements to improve appetite, enzymes & probiotics to increase food absorption,

meal-timing, and protein-calorie supplements for weight gain.
