Dr. Mort Neek who has a ground in food science and nutrition also offers nutritional therapy to his patients.
He can guide patients as how to modify their diets and eating habits to better help their healing process. You can also request a nutritional assessment. In that case you will be given a questionaire to fill out, and answer the questions, and he will use a computerized software, to assess your nutritional needs or deficiencies.
Dr. Neek, also uses nutritional supplements along with herbal medicine or alone to address nutritional needs of the patients.
We use antioxidants, extra strength EPA-DHA (Fish oil with Norwegian source), low dose multivitamin-multiminerals, certain minerals in highly absorption form and so forth. Nutritional therapy is a system of healing based on the belief that food, as nature intended, provides the medicine we need to obtain and maintain a state of health: our food is our medicine and our medicine is our food.
Although some health problems require specific medication, many conditions can be relieved effectively with nutritional therapy. These include disorders ranging from chronic fatigue, energy loss, insomnia and depression, to backache, skin complaints, asthma, and headaches. Nutritional therapy will also benefit you if you have no specific illness, but want to maintain a state of optimum health. It is safe for babies and children as well as adults, and the change of eating patterns that is typically prescribed usually has far fewer side effects than synthetic medicines.
Nutritional therapy is a holistic discipline; nutrition as the key to good health is the all-embracing fundamental principle used since the time of the famous Greek doctor and founder of western medicine, Hippocrates, to help people of all ages to stay at their personal peak of energy and vitality. Today, new insights of food scientists play a significant role in the practice of nutritional therapy as preventative medicine.
