Clinical Nutrition focuses on dietary counselling and nutritional supplementation to treat and prevent illness. Foundations of healthy eating are established with all patients. This is achieved by correcting nutritional deficiencies and removing any food sensitivities. What you eat can directly affect physical, mental and emotional health. Naturopathic Doctors are trained to assess nutritional status and needs, to customize a dietary plan that works best for you and your health concerns.
Naturopathic Doctors are also trained in the safe and effective use of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids to help correct any imbalances. Supplementation is often used when optimal dose cannot be achieved from the food directly.
