How does clinical nutrition work?

At Sellwood Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Miller works closely with you by asking detailed questions about your current health status, family and medical history, lifestyle, and nutritional practices. Her aim is to understand what you’re eating and how it’s affecting the way your body processes and stores nutrients. By assessing your overall health and any issues you might have, she can begin to determine how certain foods might be hampering your physical or emotional health.

A major part of clinical nutrition is figuring out if you are getting a healthy balance of nutrients such as:

  • Proteins
  • Glucose
  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Lipids

Once Dr. Miller has a clearer understanding of your diet, she can draw connections and make recommendations to address the root causes of painful physical symptoms, emotional problems, or diseases. For example, she may recommend reduced sugar or fat intake, coupled with ongoing support and monitoring to keep you on track. Clinical nutrition can help limit or prevent your risk of many diseases and other health issues, as well as treat or slow their progression.
