As a chiropractic internist, Dr. Nardi focus is in Functional Medicine. Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease using a patient-focused approach that doesn’t simply focus on the symptoms. Our approach at Advanced Chiropractic is to address the whole person by engaging the patient, doctor and staff members as a team coordinated by the doctor. This 21st century approach that shifts away from disease-centered care supports health as a unique expression of the individual by examining the underlying causes of disease.
Chiropractic internists spend time with their patients, listening to the story and looking at environmental, genetic, nutritional, and lifestyle factors that influence health. This enables the doctor to make a personalized, focused care plan that allows patients to attain a better expression of health.
Clinical nutrition involves studying what nutrients are necessary for your body to function best and how the foods you eat affects your health. More specifically, it is the science of nutrients and how they are digested, absorbed, transported, metabolized, stored, and eliminated by the body. Clinical nutritionists also help clients in choosing the diet right for them by assessing their current health challenges and goals. This is very helpful for people who are currently struggling with health issues like heart disease and even cancer. Disease processes, as well as conventional medical treatments like drugs and chemotherapy, take a toll on the body and deplete important nutrients. A clinical nutritionist can help determine what those deficits are and help correct them.
