Nutritional Approaches to Health

Foods and occasionally also nutritional supplements can help your body to maintain optimal health or regain health by addressing deficiencies or imbalances. Nutritional requirements can change at different life stages, and a different emphasis may be more appropriate depending on health conditions a person is experiencing. For many people it can be useful at times to speak with a knowledgeable clinician about the possible connections between food and physical symptoms or health goals.

In general, Maryland Holistics recommends methods for our patients to get their nutrients from food rather than from supplements. For patients who are taking medications, one of our highest priorities is to avoid recommending any foods or supplements which might be likely to interfere with absorption or metabolism of the medication. Similarly, when patients are known or suspected to have certain genetic conditions, we take care to not recommend foods or supplements which conflict with the condition.

Sometimes during our initial consultation we may learn that a patient is using a large amount of supplements. If the patient is interested, we may be able to help simplify that list to the most useful items. We have seen some cases in which the removal of a particular supplement was all that was needed to help the patient's symptoms to resolve.
