The foods we eat fuel our bodies and the nutrients we consume each day act as our body’s source of raw materials. A shortage of any nutrient can shut down the “assembly lines” that are our body’s biochemical pathways.
Each person’s body has unique needs called bio-individuality. We customize diet, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to fit your body’s unique metabolic needs. At Living Well Dallas, we use nutritional intervention to optimize wellness and help prevent disease states from occurring and may reverse the cellular and metabolic aging process.
Aging, fatigue, disease, weight gain, headaches, low libido, autoimmunity, and many other conditions can be reversed with optimized, individualized nutritional support that boosts your metabolic cellular function. The link between diet and health is clear: getting the nutrition that is right for your individual body will help prevent and treat suboptimal health. Functional Medicine Nutrition uses your unique biochemistry to set the stage for nutrition and lifestyle change. Clinical Nutrition helps you create your own metabolic blueprint. Your Metabolic Blueprint targets specific needs by integrating powerful nutritional metabolic testing, customized and compounded nutrients, and customized food guidelines into a single innovative tool offering customized intervention options.
Get Maximum Results by Customizing Your Nutrition to Your Individual Needs
Our team of Functional Medicine certified nutritionists provide in-depth information and assessments of each patient’s nutritional status and digestive health.
We use the Functional Medicine model and have numerous nutritional assessments available to determine optimal nutrition for you. Nutritional assessment testing is not meant to diagnose or treat any disease; the information provided is intended to assist you in making healthy eating and supplement choices. Functional Medicine Nutrition goes way beyond just eating plans and menus, we help you evaluate your metabolism, nutrient levels, and reserves and how well your digestion is working so you can take bio-individual actions to maximize your nutrition.
Why You Should Examine Your Biochemical Activities
Nutritional testing reveals your body’s unique needs by combining information from measurements of digestion, nutrients and vitamin and mineral deficiency as well as cell and organ dysfunction.
For instance, the Metabolic Blueprint evaluates your ability to burn fuel (foods) and create energy at the cellular level. To burn carbohydrates, fats and metabolize protein requires nutrients such as B-vitamins, CO Q10, lipoic acid, minerals and carnitine to name a few. All of these nutrients come from foods but may be in short supply based on your personal metabolic blueprint. Nutrient needs are highly individualized — just like you.
The Metabolic Blueprint can determine where you might be missing nutrients that affect your unique ability to burn fat or fight fatigue. The Metabolic Blueprint evaluates your amino acid profile. Amino acids are the “building blocks” of proteins that factor in chemical processes affecting physical, mental and emotional biochemical reactions such as improving serotonin levels and cellular energy.
The Metabolic Blueprint includes an evaluation of the top 30 foods that are associated with “delayed” food reactions that can worsen or may contribute to many different health problems, such as:
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Skin Problems
- Migraine/Headaches and more.
Based on your Metabolic Blueprint lab test, you will receive a comprehensive report and program to optimize your nutrition, supplementation, lifestyle, and diet to correct your metabolic issues resulting in optimal health. No more one-size-fits-all diets and supplements. The Metabolic Blueprint is tailored specifically to your body and your metabolic needs.
