Nutrition & Wellness

Nutrition is a most critical and often overlooked part of preventive health and treatment. Your food is your fuel for health and life. The wrong diet can lead to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, high blood pressure and inflammation. Dr. N. Johnson will perform a complete nutritional analysis and test your metabolic rate to see how efficiently your body uses your fuel. The ALCAT200 tests the 200 most common food sensitivities. Food sensitivities are too often overlooked as possible causes for a multitude of health problems. Dr. Johnson will help you eliminate your food sensitivities and the health problems they create. Other tests include:

  • HDL is the advanced lab testing done with your physical and follow-up visits.
  • HDL identifies cholesterol problems, thyroid imbalances, vitamin D deficiencies, low omega 3s, excessive carbohydrate and sugar intake, inadequate exercise levels, genetic folic acid mutations and more.
  • MTHFR is a gene that produces an enzyme designed to convert folic acid (vitamin B9) into forms your body can use to create neurotransmitters that stimulate your brain to think, learn, sleep, move and even express your emotions. Mutations in this gene may be linked to fatigue, foggy thinking, addictions, fibromyalgia, pulmonary embolism, miscarriage, schizophrenia, severe depression, cancer and autism. 
  • BIA is bioelectrical impedance analysis, a method of assessing your body composition, the measurement of body fat in relation to lean body mass and a measurement of fluid and body mass, that are directly related to health.
  • Saliva cheek swab is used to identify the most effective and the ineffective medication choices for you.
  • Heavy metal contamination is a urine test for toxins.
  • Stool testing

Wellness is the Opposite of Illness

Your goal should be wellness. Wellness is the optimal state of health that can keep you from getting sick and contracting disease. Too many people believe that the only time they should ever see a doctor is when they are sick. In fact, that’s really the worst time to see a doctor because illness has already happened, and treatment is typically more costly and uncomfortable than prevention.

Wellness begins with your lifestyle choices:

  • Regular physical exams & testing (blood, body composition, food sensitivity, etc.)
  • A balanced diet of natural, unprocessed foods with plenty of fruits & vegetables
  • Regular exercise, at least three to five times every week
  • Probiotic foods or supplementation
  • Detoxification as needed
