A Better Approach to Health and Wellness
Whole Food Is Medicine emphasizes treating the whole person rather than the disease.
Whole Food Is Medicine is guided by the following whole person principles:
Whole food first: Eating whole food is the cornerstone of preventing common ailments such as diabetes, heart disease, and excess weight.
Lifestyle factors: Life stressors, anxiety, physical activity, amount of sitting, amount of sleep, use of tobacco and alcohol, social connectivity, and spirituality all contribute to health and well-being.
Environmental factors: Lifetime environmental exposures affecting health include occupational exposures as well as physical environments such as where we live and work.
Mind-body practices: Meditation, mindfulness, and yoga are a few types of health promoting mind-body practices that may be combined with a whole food first approach to improve health and well-being.
Dietary supplements if indicated: Dietary supplements never replace whole food. However, some individuals may benefit from specific supplements based on genetics, age, medical conditions and symptoms. Dr. Amy does not sell nutritional supplements, but may make recommendations for supplementation if appropriate.
