The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.
~ Thomas A Edison
At Optimal Health, we encourage each of our patients to consider our nutritional consultations as a way for them to stay healthy, avoid unnecessary doctor’s appointments, and maintain balance and harmony in their own lives. We have several treatment plans to get you on your way to a healthy lifestyle.
What we eat on a daily basis has a profound influence on our health. Nutrition is fully integrated into the theories of Chinese Medicine and is integral to maintaining the success of treatments. Specific foods are recommended for specific patterns of imbalance, as well as for individual constitutions. Although patients are not required to make dietary changes, health improvements from acupuncture and herbal treatments are greatly augmented by following dietary advice offered by your practitioner. Nutrition is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Without proper nutrition, one does not have enough energy to make it through the day. Health declines without proper nutrition, making one more susceptible to illness and disease. The foods you choose make your new cells come alive and keep your existing cells active and able to do their job!

Get Healthy Today!
We highly encourage our patients to shop for local, organic produce at our amazing farmers markets. We offer guided tours of the markets to familiarize and educate you on the benefits of all the different vegetables.
Additionally, we offer in-home services such as “Cupboard Cleanout” where we come to your home and go through your pantry to eliminate all of the foods that are not supporting your vibrant health.
Not sure what to buy at the supermarket? Don’t really know what to look for on a food label regarding ingredients and nutrition? Let us take you on a supermarket tour to show you what you need to know!
Each month we also offer classes and lectures on nutrition, weight loss, breathing and more. We encourage you to take advantage of these resources so you can have a true understanding why your health is the most important asset you can have.
