Clinical Nutrition and Diet Therapy at Seattle Naturopathic Center
Naturopathic philosophy is rooted in the belief that food is medicine. Food allergy and sensitivity, digestive support, immune support and weight changes are areas for which dietary adjustments can be particularly helpful. Many types of diets are prescribed, but an emphasis on a whole foods diet is the common denominator. Specific nutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fats, amino acids, and injectable vitamins) might be also used to control inflammation, support the body’s response to stress, and enhance detoxification.
