In order for your body to function properly and for you to live a long and satisfying life, you need to get certain amounts of nutrients through your diet. The field of study about these nutrients and how they affect your body is called nutrition.
Eating a nutritious diet helps you in more ways than you might think. Some nutrients give you the energy to go about your day, while others keep your skin, hair, and nails healthy and strong. Proper nutrition also helps your body repair and regenerate in cases of sickness and injury.
Nutrients also play a vital role in preventing disease and illness. Vitamin deficiencies can cause fatigue and immune system malfunction. They can also worsen diseases like diabetes and fibromyalgia.
Unfortunately, most people’s diets are lacking some of the nutrients they need. Dr. Allende can help you learn how to incorporate essential nutrients into your diet in reasonable amounts.
If you have a deficit of a certain nutrient, he may recommend IV therapy to deliver it into your system quickly or through other methods that you won’t easily find in a store.
If you’re not getting proper nutrition through your diet, you may notice some unusual symptoms that affect your daily life. Improper nutrition can lead to:
Your diet might not be your first thought when it comes to the cause of these symptoms. If you’ve noticed a change in the way you feel or function, talk to Dr. Allende to find out if you need to improve your nutrition.
Your body needs countless nutrients, some in large quantities (macronutrients) and others in small quantities (micronutrients). The seven major classes of nutrients are:
There are other micronutrients that you may not be aware of, but their deficit may cause signs and symptoms. If you’re missing these, Dr. Allende can identify them and offer alternative ways of getting them into your system.
Missing macronutrients like water, proteins, and carbohydrates are usually easier to identify. If you’re lacking protein in your diet, for example, it can be difficult to gain muscle and repair injuries. If you’re dehydrated from a lack of water, you feel thirsty.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are harder to identify and may require a diagnosis from Dr. Allende.
Dr. Allende teaches you how to improve the nutritional content of your diet and identifies areas where it’s lacking. He also recommends supplements if you can’t get enough of some nutrients from your diet alone.
To combat the effects of vitamin and mineral deficiencies, Dr. Allende offers vitamin infusion via IV therapy.
During your vitamin infusion treatment, he delivers the nutrients you need directly into your bloodstream, which allows for quicker absorption by avoiding the slow process of your digestive system.
NAD therapy can also improve the following medical conditions, as shown from medical research:
In addition, it provides benefits in people in general good health, such as:
