Adding Better Nutrition Can Help Subtract Stress & More

With our nutrition support, we want to help relieve both physical and emotional stress and help address other health concerns with dietary changes.

Start With an Elimination Diet

“With this diet, we’re taking out foods shown in science to cause systemic inflammation. First, we pull those foods out. Then after we’ve done that, we can reintroduce foods—usually one at a time. Or if we’ve done a foods test, we know that these 12 foods, or however many, are problem foods, so we can reintroduce the other foods back in.”, according to Dr. Case.

There are lots of different diets out there, but the most important thing is if you’re going to do one of those diets (e.g. keto, paleo, Mediterranean or intermittent fasting), you have to do it correctly.

Prep Your Plate Right

“It’s also important to educate a patient about what their plate should look like, what their portions should look like, and whether that diet is the right one for them,” said Dr. Case. If you have a blood sugar issue, for example, intermittent fasting might not be the best thing for you. Instead, you may need six small meals a day, instead of eating within a 4-hour window.

Our goal is to work with each patient and determine what their individual needs are—
Physiologically and/or emotionally.

Where’s All the Stress Coming From?

“Stress likely causes a lot of people’s complaints these days. Stress on the body could be from foods, toxins, hormones, environmental stresses, you name it…”, said Dr. Case.

A person could experience emotional or physical stress. When stress gets out of control, other things start to malfunction, and sickness can set in. We are here to help!

What to Expect

Dr. Case will sit down with you and have you complete an extensive history that asks many questions that could reveal why you could be under stress. In addition, she may recommend testing to determine if you have a virus, fungus, bacteria, pathogen or even the presence of heavy metals.

Once she gathers all the necessary information, Dr. Case will craft a customized nutrition plan to address your particular health concern. She typically recommends an anti-inflammatory diet she has created using research that supports each element, and incorporates the best options that will benefit you.
