Nutrition and Diet Therapy

Read More About Nutrition and Diet Therapy

There is a revolution in health care which is based on the scientific understanding that the types of foods we eat may be intimately linked to our state of health. Nutrition/Diet Therapy is a practice of evaluating an individual's nutritional deficiencies and then replacing those essential nutrients through diet modification and nutritional supplementation with vitamins and minerals and other substances. Our main focus with diet modification is based on the work of Peter J. D'Adamo, who spells out the effect foods have on our bodies based on our blood type. Dr. Johnson is a Practitioners who is IfHI Certified. This means Dr. Johnson has attended an IfHI certification conference, completed a course of study and have passed a certification exam. These individuals who are IfHi certified have been personally trained by Dr. D'Adamo and are fully accredited practitioners and educators.

Both Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) and Contact Reflex Analysis (CRA) are utilized to find and correct underlying nutritional inadequacies using whole food and full spectrum herbal supplements. In addition, dietary guidance based on the blood type concept developed by Peter J. D’Adamo, are utilized in this part of our service to our practice members. Dr. Johnson studied and became a fellow of the Institute for Human Individuality. The Institute for Human Individuality (IfHI), a non-profit organization under the auspices of Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, has as its prime goal the fostering of research in the expanding area of human nutrigenomics and epigenetics. These emerging sciences seek to provide a molecular understanding for how common dietary chemicals affect health by altering the expression or structure of an individual’s genetic makeup.

The five basic tenets of nutrigenomics are:

  • Improper diets are risk factors for disease.
  • Dietary chemicals alter gene expression and/or change genome structure
  • The degree to which diet influences the balance between healthy and disease states may depend on an individual’s genetic makeup.
  • Some diet-regulated genes (and their normal, common variants) are likely to play a role in the onset, incidence, progression, and/or severity of chronic diseases.
  • "Intelligent nutrition" - that is, diets based upon genetics, nutritional requirements and status - prevents and mitigates chronic diseases
