Nutrition and Diet Therapy

"Out of 2.1 million deaths a year in the United States, 1.6 million are related to poor nutrition." -- C. Everett Koop, Former Surgeon General

What is Nutrition/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.

Could a nutritional deficiency be causing my health problem?
There are many scientists and health professionals who believe that diet and carefully chosen supplementation will successfully help many health problems that are usually treated with drugs or surgery. A deficiency in just one essential nutrient can cause significant health problems. For instance: a potassium deficiency will cause a person's heart to race uncontrollably, a condition known as tachycardia.

Should you take supplements?
There is overwhelming scientific evidence that our modern day food supply does not contain the vital nutrients to sustain a healthy body. Polluted air, chemicals and pesticides, modern processing methods and refinement of food have led to the depletion of essential nutrients in or food supply.

How does Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson employ nutritional analysis in your treatment protocol?
I use one or more of a variety of tests designed to identify if nutrition is part of your health concerns. These methods may include a computerized nutritional assessment, 7 day dietary analysis, Heart Rate Variability Test (HRVT) and Functional Neurological Muscle Testing (FNMT).

How does functional neurological muscle testing help determine your nutritional needs ?
Traditional Applied Kinesiologists test specific muscles after the patient tastes a food or nutrition supplement. There will be a change in muscle strength depending on the need for that particular nutrition. Probably the least effective method of evaluating the need for nutrition is reading a label. Not all nutritional supplements are the same. The FNMT is an objective way of determining what your body needs.
