Nutrition is an extremely important part of your overall health and is something that we take very seriously. We believe that you literally “are what you eat” and we will provide specific recommendations and protocols on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient’s return to optimal health.
For our patients who would like to explore this area in more detail, we offer a very comprehensive test which is called the Health Appraisal Questionnaire (HAQ).
This is a unique, nutritional evaluation which consists of over 200 questions that will assess every system in the body and make recommendations accordingly. Based upon your responses, we will be able to recognize potential systemic dysfunction that you are exhibiting that may be contributing to sub-optimal health.
• The HAQ is a comprehensive review of 28 combined organ and glandular systems typically disturbed by diet, medications, stressful lifestyles and unhealthy habits.
• The HAQ focuses on discovering system distress that may lead to organ dysfunction. The number of symptoms associated with each system is broader in range than normally encountered in typical health histories, assuring that potentially important symptoms are not overlooked.
• The HAQ bar graph provides a visual format that will enable us to easily visualize and prioritize your nutritional therapy.
• The HAQ results will customize your nutritional program to help us to specifically determine which vitamins are necessary for your unique nutritional needs.
