Nutrition Q & A

What is holistic nutrition?

Nutrition is the foundation that supports your body’s ability to produce energy, maintain brain and organ function, and regenerate tissues for healing. In other words, the road to optimal health begins by evaluating your nutritional status.

Dr. Atkins takes a holistic approach to nutrition, which means he considers all the unique variables in your life that affect your diet, metabolism, and overall health. Every challenge you face, from emotional issues to the quality of your sleep to your daily environment, have an impact on your nutritional status.

If you deal with daily stress, you have a chronic disease, or you’ve just suffered an injury, your body needs more nutrients and uses more energy than normal. As a result, you can be low on essential nutrients even if you eat a balanced diet.

Using your nutritional profile and the results of micronutrient testing, Dr. Atkins creates a bio-individual plan to support your health. Your plan may include a whole food diet, high-quality supplements, phytoembryotherapy, or all these options.

What are nutrient-dense foods?

Nutrient-dense foods are packed with nutrients but are relatively low in calories. Including nutrient-dense foods in your diet is the only way to get all the nutrients you need. Plus they have the added advantage of helping to manage your weight.

Whole, organically-grown foods are as nutrient-dense as you can find because they’re not processed and they’re free from additives. Dr. Atkins often recommends a Mediterranean diet, which is based on whole, nutrient-dense foods such as fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, whole grains, fish, and olive oil.

What types of supplements might I need?

Even when you’re careful about your diet, you may need a supplement to replace deficiencies and to help your body heal from diseases, injuries, and illnesses. These are a few of the products Dr. Atkins provides for his patients:
