Treating The Root Cause Naturally By San Jose Nutritionists

Are you tired of taking drugs? Here's a classic example of what we see on a daily basis in our practice. A patient comes in complaining of:

  • fatigue
  • trouble sleeping
  • headaches
  • weight gain
  • sore joints
  • seasonal allergies
  • depression

They are taking several medications to treat the discomfort associated with those symptoms. We know that drugs offer only temporary results and come with many, often dangerous, side effects. 

But what should one do when drugs are the only treatment offered? It is a predicament, but not when you know a good clinical nutritionist!

We Treat The Root Cause Naturally

Would you ever think that the long list of complaints listed above could have a common root cause? The beauty of the clinical nutrition provided by our San Jose nutritionists is that it is designed to find and treat the underlying root cause of health problems naturally. No drugs are typically required and the increased feeling of well-being is dramatic.

Do You Need Clinical Nutrition?

If it makes sense to you that having symptoms is NOT normal and masking them is just a temporary measure, then clinical nutrition is a powerful method of optimizing the body’s function. 

Too often we become numb or resigned to having our symptoms, simply because the traditional medical model of taking a pill has not been successful. Your body is designed to function well with good energy and vitality.  If it’s not then it needs help.  We are happy to provide that assistance.

Sign up for a free consultation and we can begin the process.

What About The "Quick Fix" That Drugs Offer?

Research tells us that much of the health problems that Americans suffer from are a direct result of poor diet and lifestyle. Changing diet and lifestyle is not difficult and it requires no drugs or surgery – that’s the good news.  

The bad news is that it doesn't involve the 'quick fix' of simply swallowing a pill. Feeling good again through clinical nutrition is a slower process it's true, but at least it isn't temporary nor does it have dangerous side effects.

Clinical nutrition employs a root cause approach.  Certified clinical nutritionists are trained to discover the underlying root cause of the problem and, whenever possible, treat it with a natural method.

What’s exciting about this is that a single root cause often underlies more than one symptom, meaning that just because you suffer with many different symptoms does not mean that you will require many different treatments. Typically one or two root causes underlie a lifetime of health complaints.

Dr. Vikki Petersen

Why Does Our Government Subsidize Toward Illness? Having been in healthcare for many years, HealthNOW San Jose Health Center certainly knows the industry, which is now changing.

Not a pretty option in my opinion, but it depends on the type of healthcare you want. If you like the standard "here's my symptom, what pill sho .. Read More
