Nutrition is the key to Improved Health
As an Applied Clinical Nutritionist, Dr. Fullerton uses functional medicine to test for body system and nutritional imbalances. She addresses your issues using whole food nutrition as well as whole food supplementation, which can support the systems in the body, facilitating healing and health. Research shows that given proper nutrition, the right nutrients, the human body has an amazing ability to repair and heal itself. Whole food supplements supply our bodies with nutrients we are not getting from our diet and fill in the nutritional gap.
Whole Food Nutrition
In today’s world it can be very confusing for people to make good nutritional choices. Food labels are deceiving, appearing to be healthy when indeed they are not. Dr. Fullerton finds it so rewarding to inform and educate patients on reading food labels and directing them to eat delicious whole foods custom to their needs to increase nutrient absorption, health and well-being. Food is a powerful tool in aiding the healing process.
We are all exposed to environmental toxins: pollutants, cosmetics, heavy metals, household cleaning products, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, trans fats and preservatives, and internal toxins: ammonia, carbon dioxide and free radicals, which research has shown can disrupt our immune, endocrine, nervous and reproductive systems. Purification, also known as detoxification, offers your body additional support to expel and metabolize these toxins and helps you maintain a healthy weight. Dr. Fullerton offers a 21-day purification cleanse that not only detoxifies but also teaches you what foods to eat. The process also acts as an elimination diet with food groups reintroduced to the diet following the cleanse to check for food allergies or intolerances.
At times, it is necessary to take whole food or herbal supplements to balance the systems of the body. Dr. Fullerton uses Standard Process whole food supplements in her practice. Their high standards set them apart from other supplements because they organically farm their foods, use techniques such as vacuum dehydrating (rather than freeze drying, using chemicals or heat) and run quantitative and qualitative tests to assure the integrity of the vitamins, minerals, micronutrients and phytochemicals in each supplement. Dr. Fullerton has spent over 15 years becoming educated on the use of Standard Process products and their applications to best address the needs of her patient’s health issues.
What you put in your body is vital to your health and well-being. Just as a car cannot run on soda, our bodies are made to run best when we eat real food that God intended for us. Eating healthy is rewarding as you will feel your best doing so. Making healthy food choices now will increase your chances of enjoying a long, rich quality life later.
