Orthomolecular medicine describes the use of nutraceuticals and supplements to enhance metabolic pathways and support metabolic function.
Vitamin and mineral supplements can be used to correct deficiencies, support neurological function, normalize brain chemistry, balance neurotransmitters, and mitigate the physical impacts of mental health complications such as sleep disturbances, physical and mental fatigue, and hormonal dysregulation.
Botanical and plant derivatives contain medicinally active constituents that are the basis for the vast majority of modern day pharmaceuticals. Their clinical use is supported by a wealth of scientific research, particularly in relation to supporting the nervous system, balancing the endocrine system and repairing the digestive system.
Medical nutritional therapy is a targeted nutritional intervention that uses medicinal foods and macronutrients to support hormonal rhythms, reduce inflammation, balance immune processes, and support neurological functioning.
Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient medical system grounded in the understanding that health and wellbeing represent a balanced energetic state within the body. From a TCM perspective, energy (or Qi) travels through our body along meridians, much like blood courses through our veins. And just as our veins can become blocked and cause decreased blood flow and cardiovascular disease, our meridians can become blocked, leading to energetic imbalances and illness. Such imbalances are treated with traditional Chinese herbs and acupuncture.
From a modern, scientific perspective, acupuncture has been shown to balance the nervous system, causing the release of chemical transmitters in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain that can alleviate pain, affect hormones and neurotransmitters, and influence the body’s internal regulatory systems.
