We have drifted into this deplorable position of national malnutrition quite inadvertently. It is the result of scientific research with the objective of finding the best ways to create foods that are non-perishable that can be made by mass-production methods in central factories and distributed cheaply.

Nutritional therapy is designed to restore health and increase energy by diagnosing and regulating imbalances within the body's nervous and digestive systems. Through the use of consultations, case and family histories, and diagnostic tests, we can determine nutritional deficiencies caused by genetic traits, disease, poor diet, and emotional stress. Testing of the autonomic nervous system can identify food sensitivities, mineral deficiencies, and decreased organ functions, as well as reveal environmental toxins within the body.
Lack of sleep, little and/or no exercise, and poor nutrition can affect your body's performance and increases the chance of physical maladies. For example, patients with weak adrenal glands typically suffer from low blood pressure, fatigue, dizziness, and exhaustion. Patients with deficiencies in livers and gallbladders tend to experience queasiness and headaches and suffer a variety of ailments from sneezing attacks to frequent skin rashes. Nutritional therapy is designed to improve the functioning of these glands and organs and restore the body's natural energy to return it to optimum health.
An evaluation begins with a symptom survey form as well as Dr. Saltman taking a case history regarding your diet and lifestyle choices. This helps him discern whether or not your body is functioning normally or at a diminished level. The diagnostic process can also reveal whether you are healthier than your age or aging more rapidly than is normal for your number of years. Muscle testing, an acoustic cardiograph, and an analysis of body fat composition are then employed to identify the key areas within the body that need support and determine the proper protocol to repair nutritional deficiencies.
Nutritional therapy includes dietary changes and the use of safe, pure, and potent whole food and herbal supplements. Vitamins are digested, absorbed and used more effectively by the body when they are obtained from whole foods instead of from synthesized chemicals. Even for healthy eaters, the nutrients in foods alone are insufficient to deal with increased nutritional demands due to stress. The supplements from Standard Process are “real replacement parts”. For over 75 years these specialized nutrients have been shown to be highly effective in aiding in healing, improving emotions, balancing hormones, and replenishing energy. They are the benchmark in the industry. www.standardprocess.com.
