Few people realize the impact that diet has on the body’s inflammatory response system. Much of the American adult population suffers from chronic inflammation, and more often than not, this inflammation is a result of poor diet and inadequate nutrition. Chronic inflammation is also responsible for the manifestation of most diseases, and we’re seeing an alarming increase of chronic disease diagnoses among the adult U.S. population. At Rejuvenation Health in East Hampton, NY, our team of naturopathic doctors and holistic nutritionists work one-on-one with each patient to develop customized dietary plans that minimize inflammation, improve wellness, and decrease risk potential for disease manifestation.
Inflammation is the root cause of most oral and systemic disease in the body. To maintain wellness and prevent disease, patients need to be in tune with their personal dietary needs, which is where the importance of nutritional counseling in East Hampton, NY and customized meal plans comes in! With more than 30 years of clinical practice experience, acclaimed author and holistic healthcare practitioner Dr. Gerry Curatola goes above and beyond the dietary standards and stereotypes that define most holistic wellness models.
Dr. Curatola and the Rejuvenation Health teamwork with each patient to identify dietary-related sources of inflammation in the body, many of which manifest in the mouth. By isolating causal disease chains and eliminating oral inflammation through optimized nutrition plans, we help patients get on a balanced path to auto-regulation and self-healing – without the need for medication or prescription drugs! Among other things, a holistic diet helps to:
The average Western diet is severely lacking in a variety of key vitamins and minerals, including vitamins C, D and E. Boosting vitamin and mineral intake through supplements is not always sufficient, however, since mineral uptake is often lost due to cofactors that affect bioavailability. For this reason, it is important to work with a registered holistic nutritionist that will be able to create a dietary plan that accounts for – and optimizes – your unique metabolic demands.
To optimize the anti-inflammatory properties of vitamin D, for example, it is often necessary to supplement diets with vitamin K2. Other key anti-inflammatory vitamins and nutrients include omega fatty acids, vitamins B6 and B12 (for immune health), and microminerals such as manganese, chromium and zinc, which acts as a “microbial scavenger” to eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses.
