clinical nutrition for optimal health

Clinical Nutrition

Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body is in the process of replacing itself every day, month, and year. Their health depends on having enough of the correct nutrients in balance with the day-to-day stressors. When your body is not getting the tools it needs—and/or getting bombarded by toxic substances—your cells, tissues, and organs cannot properly function; they break down and you age. After enough time, you experience symptoms.

While allopathic medicine is the most effective system for acute medical and surgical emergencies, it has only a limited ability to change the course of most degenerative diseases. A collection of lifestyle effects and environmental factors accumulate over the years and develop into lifestyle diseases, or diseases of civilization. Lifestyle diseases are different from other diseases because they are are quite preventable.

Are you looking to live a more energized life but don’t know where to start?

Struggling with weight loss or maintaining your vitality?

I’ve been in your shoes.

The truth is, traditional doctors do not have extensive training in nutrition. Although they can tell you to change your diet, they are not able to talk with you in-depth about what your diet and lifestyle should be during those short visits. It’s not their fault. It’s simply outside the scope of their practice. They expect you to take charge and even find an expert if you need help.

So most people turn to the internet or mountains of books on holistic health, nutrition and healing—the most conflicting and confusing “do this” “try that” ever.

My Clinical Nutrition program unravels the confusion.

Dr. Ed Childers D.O. - Natural Family Medine in Albuquerque NM

I felt I was on the path to stroke and diabetes but didn’t quite know what to do about it. I knew I needed to lower my cholesterol and glycemic levels, but wanted to avoid medications and their problems.

Phyllis is so nurturing; she guided me to discover for myself how nutrition could work to achieve my health goals. My blood tests are so much more improved and I’m making much healthier choices. I’ve discovered that healthy foods can be delicious. I’m no longer crave sugary snacks and in fact have no problem resisting them. Overall I feel so much better about myself.

I highly recommend Phyllis to anyone who wants to develop a more healthy way of living or anyone who fears the harm of high blood sugar or is concerned with cholesterol levels, stroke, or diabetes.

Thank you so much for your support and encouragement! –Alice Haley

As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and you’ll be able to implement lasting changes that will improve your energy and health.

Each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, ancestral background and even your budget. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!

And usually there are other factors present; factors contributing to unwanted symptoms and that are outside the realm of “diet”. In fact, these factors can sometimes limit the results of shifting to more nourishing foods.

Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

Hands On Healthcare helped me manage a serious change in my body last year. It took the medical doctors 5 months to come up with a diagnosis. Rheumatoid arthritis inflammation was attacking different body organs.

Dr. Childers and Phyllis helped me handle this 5 month ordeal with dietary changes, acupuncture, and cranial sacral therapy. Their PEP talks kept me fighting to get control back of my body. They gave me hope that I could defeat what was going on.

After the 5 months my body did a rapid change back to normal. I will continue to control the RA flares with the diet and lifestyle changes that Dr. Childers and Phyllis have taught me. I am so happy that I was referred to them. —Pat Moorman
