Nutrition Q & A

Why do I need a nutrition evaluation?

Most people don’t get all the nutrients they need through the foods they eat. For this reason, everyone can benefit from a nutritional evaluation to determine whether they have any deficiencies.

Certain people have a higher risk of being deficient. You should especially consider a nutrition evaluation if you:

  • Are an athlete following an intensive training regimen
  • Experienced an acute illness, accident, or injury recently
  • Have a chronic pain condition such as low back pain
  • Recently had a surgical procedure
  • Are considering getting pregnant
  • Are over the age of 50
  • Are overweight

Any time your body is under stress, it uses extra nutrients. Whether your stress is due to sickness, injury, intensive physical exertion, or surgery, your nutrient intake may not be enough to meet your body’s increased needs.

Patients over the age of 50 develop gastrointestinal changes that affect their ability to absorb nutrients. Nutritional deficiencies are also common in patients who are overweight.

Finally, if you’re thinking about getting pregnant, it’s essential to start taking extra nutrients, including folate, long before you get pregnant.

What should I expect during my nutrition consultation?

During your nutritional consultation, you’ll fill out a questionnaire that helps Dr. Sandahl identify potential nutritional deficiencies.

Depending on your age, overall health, and the results of your questionnaire, Dr. Sandahl may recommend a physical exam or order blood tests to identify nutritional problems. Then the doctor works with you to develop a nutrition plan.

What treatments support my nutritional health?

The team at Tier Wellness Center believes in the beginning with a clean detox protocol so that you get a fresh start.

They also make sure that everyone is well-hydrated and drinking clean water. Optimal hydration is essential for your body to operate at full energy.

Dr. Sandahl follows a holistic approach, which includes everything that goes in your body, including coffee. The doctor recommends organic Purity Coffee®, which is high in antioxidants and free of contaminants.

Your plan also includes supplements based on your unique nutritional needs. For example, you may receive supplements to boost energy, support your digestive tract, or help relieve aches and pains.

The team at Tier Wellness Center recommends organic, whole-food supplements, such as the products from Standard Process®.

There’s nothing more important for your health and energy than giving your body the nutrition it needs. Call Tier Wellness Center or book an appointment online for your nutrition consultation.
