What is nutrition?

In general terms, nutrition means nourishment. Good nutrition means you’re getting the right balance of calories and nutrients from the food you eat to meet the needs of your body.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet filled with a variety of nutritious foods improves wellness and vitality, makes it easier for you to maintain a healthy weight, and may prevent onset of chronic disease.

However, even if you eat a healthy diet, your body may not get all the nutrients it needs for optimal health. The food you eat may even be a source of illness if you have a food sensitivity.

The team at Resplendence MedSpa takes a holistic approach to health and considers nutrition an important part of health, wellness, and anti-aging.

What are nutrition services?

Resplendence MedSpa offers comprehensive nutrition services. When you come in for an evaluation, the team conducts an in-depth clinical exam to fully understand your health and wellness needs.

They also perform advanced lab testing to look for nutrient deficiencies and food sensitivities.

Nutrient deficiencies

Despite having an abundance of food options, nutrient deficiencies are common. An inadequate supply of micronutrients may affect organ function and health. Nutrient deficiencies are especially common in people struggling with their weight.

The team at Resplendence MedSpa offers nutrient deficiency testing to assess your nutritional status and health.

Food sensitivities

What you eat may be the source of your chronic inflammation, joint pain, migraines, dermatitis, or fatigue.

To assess for food sensitivities, the team at Resplendence MedSpa uses the Alcat Test panel from Cell Science Systems. The Alcat Test measures your cellular reaction to more than 450 substances, including various foods, food additives, and molds.

How do I improve my nutrition?

After your nutrient deficiency and food sensitivity testing, the team has you return to the office to discuss the results. Then, they work with you to design a nutrition plan to optimize your health and wellness.

To improve your nutrition, the team may recommend:

  • Diet modification
  • ProLon® diet
  • Nutrition supplements
  • IV nutrition therapy
  • Peptide therapy

Improving your nutrition not only improves your health, but may also improve your energy and slow down your body’s aging process.
