Nutrition

Why Your Health is the Most Important Investment You Can Make:

I’m sure that you need no explanation these days about how your nutrition can affect your state of health. What may surprise you, though, is that our bodies often do not respond well to the brutal directness of modern science. For example, many patients’ bone density tests show low calcium levels in their bones, even when their diet provides sufficient levels of calcium. Sometimes, the human organism simply does not absorb all the nutrients it needs, or when it does some nutrients do not reach their intended targets and destination. This is one of the main reasons why the practitioners at the Advanced Holistic Center’s Miami Beach nutrition and Downtown Miami nutrition branches strongly believe that a holistic approach isn’t just a good idea but a necessity. Instead of merely recommending the patients with low calcium in their bones to take calcium as nutritional supplements, we combine nutrition with other methods, primarily from the rich arsenal of traditional Chinese medicine, to try to restore individual organism’s optimal function, which, in turn, should improve any specific issues with absorption of the needed nutrients.

Our Approach

As you probably guessed, at the Advanced Holistic Center’s Miami Beach nutrition and Downtown Miami nutrition branches, our approach is holistic. While our main expertise is the methods of traditional Chinese medicine, our practitioners often work with medical doctors, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, dieticians, and other medical providers. Fortunately, research conducted during the last several decades helped evolve traditional Chinese medicine into a flexible supporting system that can be useful in many circumstances that patients go through, and our therapists at Advanced Holistic Center’s Miami Beach nutrition and Downtown Miami nutrition branches are prepared to provide the services that would fit your immediate and/or future needs. For example, a lot of patients turned to us with requests to help them lose weight, and we designed a therapeutic diet system that helps regulate weight while maintain the optimal state of health. Instead of merely prescribing a specific diet, our therapists work with each patient to make sure that the diet fits each patient’s personal preferences and cultural foods, thus making keeping the diet as easy and natural as it can be.

Services

During the first consultation, our practitioners conduct an hour-long interview with each patient, to become familiar with his or her lifestyle, food preferences, family history, personal circumstances, so the treatment that our therapists will develop would fit each patient’s lifestyle as smoothly as possible, because we want our patients to take the most benefit out of their visits to the Advanced Holistic Center’s Miami Beach nutrition and Downtown Miami nutrition branches, and our practitioners will adjust any difficult areas in our patients’ diets as issues arise. To increase the quality of treatment, our practitioners often combine personally designed diets with exercises, acupuncture, manual therapy, or/and other modalities, or other methods, such as psychotherapy, medications, and so on, depending on individual patient’s life circumstances, including even your cravings and habits.

Traditional Chinese Medicine & Nutrition

Similarly to herbal medicine, acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, and other modalities, traditional Chinese nutrition is based on the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, and it can work as a stand-alone therapy and in conjunction with other methods and/or modalities. When used alone, the practitioner first needs to establish a pattern of organ imbalance causes the symptoms that individual patient is concerned about. All foods, from traditional Chinese nutritional standpoint, are categorized according to five tastes, corresponding to five zang (solid) organ and five elements from the Taoist concepts, and the food’s temperature, some warm and some cold (yin and yang foods). Chinese nutrition’s link to traditional Chinese medicine makes the integration with other modalities from traditional Chinese medical system seamless, but it is also flexible enough to work well together with various western medical therapies, and the practitioners at the Advanced Holistic Center’s Miami Beach nutrition and Downtown Miami nutrition branches stay up to date with the latest research developments, to ensure that each patient receives the best available care at our center.
