Welcome to Precision Nutrition Consultants – our Functional Medicine approach to overcome and heal chronic pain. This is a systems-oriented, patient-centered approach that aims to address the underlying causes of chronic disease. This approach engages both the patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership that emphasizes prevention and healing through nutrition and lifestyle changes.
Our extensive laboratory panels look to see how your body is physiologically performing, rather than looking for a disease state. We use state-of-the-art specific testing systems: advanced blood testing, urine testing, genetic testing and stool testing if appropriate to evaluate our patients with chronic pain, inflammation, autoimmune and endocrine deficiencies.
Lab testing is important because it shows not only the full blown disease, but also a trend toward disease. Lab testing tracks progress and serves as a measure of success for our therapies. Lab testing also improves compliance and support.
Stool Testing for Gut Issues:
Painful inflammation is a body’s response to toxins as it works to purify itself. Chronic inflammation not only causes pain in the body but also, over time, it can also trigger chronic disease. There are many ways to treat inflammation. One of the most exciting, all natural therapy, is adopting an anti-inflammatory diet.
An anti-inflammatory diet eliminates the unpleasant side effects of some medications. Following an anti-inflammatory diet is a powerful therapy for pain control, with many beneficial side effects. The anti-inflammatory diet is considered an integrative approach to pain management, along with a healthy lifestyle.
Nutrition that supports a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods is the key to neutralizing inflammation and chronic pain management. Although there are no magic foods, putting the right combination of foods in your diet can produce remarkable results.
It’s possible for a person to address autoimmunity through dietary modifications. Dietary and lifestyle changes can decrease the severity of autoimmune conditions, halt the progression of disease and possibly prevent the problem from occurring from the start.
