Nutrition-Based Approach

A nutrition-based approach considers all aspects of someone’s diet, health, and lifestyle while incorporating the science of nutrition to use food as information. A nutrition-based approach helps individuals support their body’s natural ability to heal itself through diet and lifestyle modification. Similar to any other vessel, to maintain function, the body needs maintenance and support for optimal health. Factors that influence a person’s health can include diet, genetics, hormone health, microbiome makeup, stress, sleep, and physical activity, all of which we believe vary person to person.

A nutrition-based approach can support disfunction and optimize:


    • Heart Health

    • Weight Loss

    • Metabolic Health

    • Gastrointestinal Imbalance

    • Endocrine Health


Through addressing nutrient deficiencies and eating a whole foods diet you support the body’s natural healing processes.

The Impact of Food on CVD Prevention

“Broader adherence to recommendations for daily intake of fruit, vegetables, fish and fatty acid composition may take away as much as 20-30% of the burden of cardiovascular disease and result in approximately 1 extra life year for a 40-year-old individual.


Promotion of a healthy diet should be given more emphasis in the prevention of cardiovascular disease.”
