What is Integrative and Functional Nutrition?
Integrative and Functional Nutrition is a leading-edge and evidenced-based approach to nutrition care that will significantly improve health outcomes. It combines the very best of modern science, clinical wisdom and critical thinking.
Let's break it down:
Functional Nutrition focuses on the "root causes" of disease. It looks at inflammatory imbalances, detoxification imbalances, hormonal imbalances, mitochondrial dysfunction, immune imbalances, toxic emotions, digestive, absorptive and microbiological imbalances that create disease.
Integrative Nutrition refers to the integration of multiple therapeutic modalities that support health. In addition to specialized diets and targeted nutrient therapies, it uses mind-body techniques such as meditation, yoga, breathing techniques and other stress reduction practices.
The tools of Integrative and Functional Nutrition include: nutrition-focused physical assessment; therapeutic elimination diets; conventional and functional labs and diagnostics including nutrigenetic testing; art and science of dietary supplements; mind-body modalities.
The power of Integrative and Functional Nutrition lies in its therapeutic benefit. It recognizes that each individual is biological and genetically unique. The best way to maximize health and get results is to address diet and nutrition, and all its contributing factors. Contact Misa today to set up a consultation.
