Nutrition Therapy and Supplementation
The foundation of optimal health and vitality comes from nutrients ingested in the form of food. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, stated 2400 years ago, "Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food". Naturopathic medicine excels in resolving many illnesses and chronic conditions by simply evaluating a person's nutritional status, removing offending foods, and recommending foods abundant in the necessary nutrients to restore proper physiology, function and vitality. It is essential to consume foods in the right balance, along with nutritional recommendations that are specific to the patient's complaints. As an example, Dr. Luhar may recommend to a patient suffering from prostate inflammation to consume foods higher in zinc (pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, oysters).
The role of proper nutrition is very important in one's health, as is the first building block for every initial consultation with Faryal. When supplements are required for specific actions, those will be included in the treatment protocol.
