Nutritional Counseling

Nutrition from the Inside Out

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates

Nutrition is one of the most powerful weapons in all of medicine for both treating illness and preventing it. This was true in Ancient Greece during Hippocrates’ lifetime and it is still true today, in our lifetime. Proper nutrition allows the human body to perform miraculous feats of healing and repair. In this way, food, quite literally, IS medicine. While most of us know a healthy diet is something to strive for, we’ve gotten a bit lost on the details of what that means and have forgotten many of the dangers of poor nutrition.

Modern life, with the stress and hectic schedule many deal with each day, has made the fast-food and take-out solution the norm instead of the exception. Even when we do our best to eat healthfully, our efforts can be compromised by pesticides, GMOs, nutrient depletion of the soil food is grown in, and modern farming practices. In fact, researchers estimate that at least 90% of Americans have some level of nutritional deficiency. How do you know if you should be tested for nutrient deficiency? Take a look at the list below. How many of these health issues do you experience?


Skin issues (rashes, eczema, psoriasis, easy bruising) Fatigue or persistent tiredness not resolved by restful sleep Gastrointestinal problems (gas, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, food sensitivity)
Arthritis or joint pain Muscle cramps Hair loss
Depression and/or anxiety Frequent illness or infection Numbness in legs, hands, or feet
Poor wound healing Asthma High blood pressure
Blood sugar issues (including Type 2 Diabetes) Sleep issues (insomnia, trouble staying asleep, needing excessive sleep) Difficulties with memory or concentration


Frequent headaches or migraines Abnormal heart rate or abnormal heart rhythms Gum disease, dry mouth, mouth ulcers
Auto-immune disorders Infertility Anemia
Allergies Restless legs ADD/ADHD


If you experience even one of the health challenges from the list, it’s possible that you may have a nutritional deficiency. You may have noticed that there are health issues listed for nearly every system in the body—muscles, bones, skin, digestion, cardiovascular, fertility, mental health, nerves, and more. Nutrient deficiencies impact the body on the cellular level. Different types of cells in different areas of the body require different sets of key vitamins and minerals to work properly. Dr. Thomas uses various types of testing (salivary, blood serum, urine, or stool) to gather accurate information about your unique nutritional profile. Using this profile, Dr. Thomas creates a comprehensive plan to help address deficiencies and also correct any nutrient levels that are too high.

Depending on your individual needs, your nutritional counseling plan may include specific diet guidelines, elimination of certain foods, supplementation, and for some people, IV infusion treatments as well. At first, changing unhealthy eating habits can be challenging, however, Dr. Thomas works closely with patients during the entire process. She understands that change can be difficult and takes a practical approach to help each patient achieve the most optimal nutrition possible.

Nutritional Imbalances can Affect your Body in Many Ways

Amino Acids

Amino acids are integral to healthy body chemistry. They serve as the bodyʼs basic building blocks and are responsible for the production of bone and muscle. Balance is critical for proper nerve function, metabolism, detoxification, and digestion. When certain amino acids are too high or low, they can cause fatigue, increased cardiovascular risk, and impair mood and cognitive function. Once identified, imbalances can be corrected, which helps to prevent many chronic illnesses before they can cause severe and lasting damage.

Fatty Acids

Fatty acids are essential to the construction of cell membranes. Too little or too much fat can cause health problems. Reduced levels of certain fats can result in depression, hyperactivity, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet, and early senility. In addition, pregnant and lactating mothers should have their fatty acids tested to ensure their children receive the fats needed for proper brain and nerve development. Measurement is the only means to determine your individual needs.

Dietary Minerals

Minerals in our body serve two functions: building blocks and regulators,controlling our bodyʼs processes. Many of these minerals are derived from diet, and sometimes minerals are added to a diet as supplements. Magnesium,copper, and manganese are beneficial. If proper amounts are not obtained, problems such as joint pain, weight problems, depressed libido, depression, or anxiety can occur.

On the other hand, some minerals can be toxic.  Exposure to mercury, lead,arsenic, or other heavy metals can be harmful, causing fatigue, emotional disturbances, and even renal failure. Laboratory testing can provide valuable information about your health.


Antioxidants are protective molecules that reduce free radical damage or oxidative stress. Free radicals are naturally-occurring compounds in our bodies that can cause severe injury to cells. Low levels of antioxidants lessen your protection from these harmful compounds. Antioxidants are essential for the bodyʼs ability to protect against free radicals and for healthy function of the neurological, endocrine, and immune systems.

Oxidative Stress is linked to premature aging, heart disease, neurological diseases, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Dr. Thomas utilizes lab tests that can assess equilibrium between oxidative stress and antioxidant protection.
