Nutrition Q & A

How does nutrition help heal disease?

Personalized nutrition is a powerful way to combat illness and prevent health problems. Dr. Levan and her team help individuals uncover the cause of their problems and discover which foods or supplements can provide therapeutic support.

When the body is getting the right nutrients — and can assimilate them properly — good health is the natural outcome. A diet that addresses your immune health, hormone balance, genetic factors, and other aspects of your unique physiology can offer healing from:

  • Gastrointestinal issues: Examples of these include acid reflux, constipation, and irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Autoimmune problems: These include issues like celiac disease, psoriasis, or rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Chronic conditions: Diabetes, obesity, or high cholesterol fall under this category.

Which personalized nutrition services are offered?

Whether you’re trying to recover from a chronic condition or complete a weight loss goal, Dr. Levan and her team offer effective personalized nutrition plans.

Your treatment starts with an in-depth examination and consultation. During this appointment, Dr. Levan assesses your health history, runs diagnostic tests, examines your body, and discusses any symptoms you’re experiencing. She then creates a customized diet plan to address your health problems or goals.

For many people, treatment involves the FODMAP diet protocol, which refers to specific carbohydrates and sugar alcohols that many people have trouble digesting. The FODMAP diet includes foods to eat and foods to avoid to reduce symptoms like gas, abdominal bloating, or gastrointestinal pain.

Your personalized nutrition plan might also include vitamins, minerals, or herbal supplements to support your health.

What results can I expect?

When you start eating the right foods -- and avoiding the wrong ones -- it’s common to experience immediate symptom relief, increased energy, better mood, and fewer aches and pains.

You’ll check in periodically with Dr. Levan and the team to discuss your progress or make adjustments to your plan. 

As the foundation for healthy living, good nutrition can help you reverse health problems and keep you energized and strong for life.
