Nutritional Medicine Q&A

What is nutritional medicine?

Nutritional medicine is an approach to care that uses nutrition as the foundation for achieving and maintaining optimal health. It involves identifying and addressing nutrient deficiencies along with assessing your individual needs to create personalized nutrition that optimizes your health, prevents diseases, and restores your bodily function. 


Based on the premise that your body has the innate ability to heal itself, nutritional medicine uses whole foods and supplements to boost your physiological functions, from metabolism to energy production.


As a functional medicine specialist, your provider at Dr. G Family Medical and Wellness Center can incorporate nutrition into your preventive care plan to enhance your health and wellness.

What are some conditions nutritional medicine can treat?


Nutritional medicine can help prevent, manage, and treat many acute and chronic health concerns, such as:


  • Type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance 
  • Digestive disorders
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Allergies
  • Food sensitivities
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Metabolic disorders


Using nutritional medicine as your foundation for care can also help manage your weight and facilitate healthy aging.

How can nutritional medicine help with weight loss?


Nutritional medicine supports healthy, sustainable weight loss. Unlike fad diets, which focus on restriction, nutritional medicine encourages you to build a healthy relationship with food that emphasizes the importance of nutrient-dense meals.

  • Intravenous (IV) therapy with Olympia Compounding Pharmacy

The practice provides comprehensive nutritional consultations to identify your specific nutritional needs and create a customized plan to help you reach your goals. Through nutritional medicine, you can achieve a healthier body without resorting to crash diets or harmful weight loss methods.

What role can nutritional medicine play in preventing disease?


Nutritional medicine addresses nutritional deficiencies and promotes healthy eating habits to reduce inflammation and prevent disease. Following a balanced diet also provides your body with the essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients it needs to strengthen your immune system.
