Nutrition Counseling

round-purple-icon-01Our approach to nutrition education is designing a specific program made just for you. We utilize different testing procedures to determine your nutritional needs, toxic stress level and your ability to digest food. Telling someone to eat a certain food or take a certain vitamin is pointless if their body is not in a position to break down and utilize that nutrition. We take measures to treat each patient as an individual therefore our nutritional plans and counseling are never cookie cutter; each plan is designed for the specific needs of each patient.

The doctors may also recommend additional therapies to expedite your healing process such as food-based nutritional supplements, herbal remedies, enzyme therapy or a purification program.

Food Allergy Sensitivity Testing

round-purple-icon-02Could the foods you love and eat every day be making you sick? Very often, the foods we eat the most are the same foods to which we have sensitivities. Sensitivities to foods can lead to allergic reactions, skin irritations, auto-immune conditions and a decrease in immunity. The most common food sensitivities are corn, wheat, soy, and dairy…basically the staples of the American diet. Testing to see which foods we are sensitive to and systematically rotating them out of the diet can be the start of a more vibrant, healthier you.

Hormonal Saliva Testing

round-purple-icon-03Did you know that hormones largely determine your state of health and how you feel? If you’ve been suffering from symptoms of PMS, menopause, fatigue, sleep disorders, anxiety/depression, unexplained weight loss or gain you may have a hormone imbalance.

Remarkable insights into health and disease are offered through analysis of saliva. It is the most accurate way of testing hormones at a cellular level. Experts agree that diagnosis and prevention of disease using saliva are about to enter a period of explosive growth. Unlike blood testing, saliva analysis is looking at how your body functions at the cellular level. Saliva is therefore truly representative of what is going on inside your body.

Doctors experienced in saliva analysis are able to predict, diagnose or prevent many health problems and diseases. Saliva testing is convenient and noninvasive. There is no pain involved, and an individual can take a sample in the privacy of his or her own home.

Supplements

Standard Process

round-purple-icon-06We believe in providing nutrients as they’re found in nature. When nutrients are given in a food based vitamin the body recognizes it as food and is more likely to utilize it. Synthetic vitamins boasting tens of nutrients in one pill, taken once a day such as those commonly found in grocery stores are created in a laboratory and are not the best way to supplement your diet.

Standard Process is a company that provides food-based and primarily organic supplements. It is a company that has been around since 1929 and is the gold standard in food based nutrition. We are proud to be able to offer these quality supplements at an affordable price.

21 Day Nutritional Cleanse

round-purple-icon-08Purification is also known as detoxification or cleansing and is the process of neutralizing and eliminating toxins in the body. There are many reasons why a periodic detoxification is necessary. Typically what alerts us is our body. If you suffer from any of the following it may be time to begin a purification program:

  • Weight Gain or inability to lose weight
  • Unexplained and/or chronic fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Reduced mental clarity
  • Food cravings
  • Poor digestion – bloating, gas, IBS
  • Fatigue after exercise
  • Dependence on medication
  • Depression/Anxiety

If you think you would like to begin a cleanse under a doctor’s supervision, contact our office and schedule a consultation.

Chirozyme

round-purple-icon-09Eating well or taking supplements is pointless if you can’t digest them. The key to good digestion is enzymes. There are enzymes in the food you eat if you eat it raw and there are enzymes in your body. If all you ever eat is cooked, processed and/or packaged foods chances are you are deficient in enzymes. The most common sign of enzyme deficiency is “heartburn” also known as gastric reflux or GERD. Enzyme deficiency can also present as Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS, gas, bloating, constipation and other chronic illnesses.

At the Khoury Centre, we believe one of the keys to good nutrition is good digestion with enzyme supplementation.
