There are many clinical and scientific studies that support the fact that there are very low and in some cases even no good quality nutrients in our diet today. The modern diet is usually characterized by an abundance of refined sugars, additives, preservatives, chemicals, colorants, unhealthy saturated fats, and highly refined corn syrup. This is accompanied by a lack of basic essential nutrients and fiber. The typical value and convenience driven diet is a recipe for daily nutritional deficiency. This can easily become the trigger point for chronic disease conditions to appear and even flourish.
Nutritional experts and medical professionals have been recommending for a long time that a healthy diet should include a supplementation regime, however for ultimate effectiveness it is vital to move beyond the over-the-counter approach.
At Angeles hospital your supplementation program will use only pharmaceutical grade supplements and will be designed by a team of medical professionals that actively take into consideration key factors like your genetic background, physical state, daily lifestyle, age, gender, and the absence or presence of disease.
As chronic disease conditions create a very challenging environment for meeting a patient’s daily nutritional needs through diet alone, professionally crafted and supervised supplementation prescription is often essential.
Using your medical history, lab work and specific medical tests, your Functional Medicine team will develop a supplement regimen optimized for your specific health needs and challenges. Your supplementation plan will be continuously reviewed and altered as your body moves towards healing, balance and health.
