Replenishing the Body’s Resources
At Gracer Medical Center, we use nutrition as an adjunct therapy to help treat most pain and chronic infection conditions.
Chronic pain or infection, and diseases such as diabetes, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome tax the body and deplete its resources. Providing extra nutritional support helps the body regenerate and activate its own healing systems.
What is nutrition therapy? It is the modification of your diet and the addition of supplements to help correct many conditions. Many of our other therapies at GMG are enhanced with the addition of nutrition therapy. Reducing carbohydrates in the diets of those with insulin resistance, consuming highly purified fish oil to provide critical omega-3 fatty acids (EPA) for people with inflammation, and the use of glucasomine and chodroitin to help rebuild cartilage in joints are examples of nutritional therapies that complement other therapies.
The results – For chronic pain, high quality individualized nutritional supplements can help modify inflammation and stimulate repair. For chronic infection and other conditions that involve immune that system problems, these treatments can help reconstitute and regulate this important system. They also support the body’s ability to make and control important hormones.
Key Benefits of Nutrition Therapy:
- Reduced inflammation that causes pain
- Support for the bodies own healing and immune systems
- Correction of underlying hormone deficiencies
