The Importance of a Personalized Diet

At Hunt Naturopathic Clinic a patient’s appropriate diet is based on their biochemical individuality. Just as each person is unique, so too is their dietary plan.

There are diets that are “generally healthy,” but it is just that. They are general and not specific for the individual person.

The ways to assess the correct diet for each patient is based upon the patient’s health condition (pathology) and laboratory test information.

A patient with specific health conditions such as gout, obesity, high blood pressure, skin issues (eczema, psoriasis), inflammatory bowel disease, atonic constipation, anemia, etc. may receive a diet plan that is individualized to their disease.

Other ways of assessing the proper diet may be through complete blood count, ferritin, food allergy testing, blood typing, stool testing for infectious microbes such as candida, low levels of short chain fatty acids and malabsorption.

With diet being such a critical factor in a person’s health, we invest a great deal of time to make sure we have the correct food plan/diet for each patient.
