Disease Nutrition

“It’s far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has.”
– Hippocrates

Disease nutrition is a cornerstone of holistic and naturopathic approaches to healing the body (often regardless of what kind of disease the body has.) Supporting the assimilation and elimination process in both the GI track and at the cellular level cannot be overlooked when attempting to achieve and maintain balance. Once digestion is normalized, I usually look to maximizing hepatic detoxification and proper brain function/circulation.

Over the last decade I have been asked a great deal of questions about disease nutrition support in four main areas:

  1. Autoimmune diet
  2. Kidney failure diet
  3. Diet for arthritis
  4. Diet for colitis

Of course there is a larger conversation to have about disease nutrition support for heartburn, obesity, diabetes, cholesterol and cancer but I want to focus more on these in greater detail in a later article.
