Functional Nutrition is not the work of a dietitian who develops meal plans based on sickness or disease. Functional Nutrition is a new term for a historical philosophy and common-sense practice that food is medicine. Everybody requires vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, enzymes, protein, and lipids to build and maintain optimal health. With Functional Nutrition, we believe that a nutrient rich diet is key to optimal health and the most efficient way to receive nutrients is in a way that nature intended, in a whole food form. Standard Process has been growing and providing nutrient rich supplements made with organic whole food ingredients since 1929.
What Happens at A Functional Nutrition Visit?
The first part of a Functional Nutrition Visit is assessing the problems and goals of the patient. We look at health history. We use an online Body Systems Survey to clarify details on past and current symptoms. We incorporate a food diary to help us understand the eating pattern and food choices that contribute to health or to illness. For chronic or stubborn health issues we may recommend that we dig for deeper understanding of the causes of health issues with lab testing.
After inquiring into health through Functional Nutrition assessments, a Report of Findings is made, and a daily diet and supplement schedule is recommended. We prescribe nutrient rich supplements made from whole food ingredients by Standard Process and herbal medicine from Mediherb. Patients receive a supplement schedule based on Functional Nutrition Report of Findings, their health goals and budget. Follow-up visits can be 30, 60 or 90 days.
