Clinical Nutrition

At Delaware Acupuncture & Nutrition we take pride in our care for our patient’s health. In addition to Chinese medicine we also believe that nutrition is an essential aspect of good health. The successful treatment of having a balanced nutritional state is essential for achieving and maintaining optimal health.

Nutrition deficiency and chronic degenerative changes have become common in this modern world. Due to increased stress, a diet that no longer resembles what our genetic coding was designed to utilize, and toxic exposure that exceeds normal abilities nutritional therapy has developed as a way to support the human in today’s landscape.

The premier classic of Chinese medicine, the Nei Jing (Inner Classic), says that treating disease after it arises is like beginning to dig a well after one has become thirsty.

In Chinese Medicine optimum nutrition is extremely important, because of its effects on the whole body’s mechanism and metabolism. That’s why each patient is evaluated individually and receives a dietary prescription based on their needs. Some of our patients want to lose weight so we combine diet with other necessary treatment options; while others need to balance digestion or their metabolism. We help patients reduce their cholesterol level, lower high blood pressure, reduce any hormonal unbalances and much more. We can help you achieve these benefits just by changing your diet

In Chinese History the Tang Dynasty (618-907 CE) was known as the golden age of reform and cultural advancement, and is considered the greatest dynasty of ancient China.

Sun Si-miao was a famous doctor of his time who was very interested in health and longevity. His studies lead him to a special interest in dietary therapy for maintaining good health and a long life.

Sun Si-miao said that when a person is sick, the Chinese medicine doctors should first modify the patient’s diet and lifestyle and only if these changes are not enough should the doctor administer other interventions, believing that in most cases, these changes are enough to effect change in the body over time.

Considering that he believed this a few thousand years ago it is a pretty strong statement even today. The importance of good nutrition today is vital for health and well-being.

Food is the building blocks of everything in our body, whatever we eat or drink will be transformed into our blood stream and will spread into each cell of our body. Eating and drinking the right things will help the body, but putting the wrong things in can cause harm. All our muscles are full of blood and when we accumulate too many toxins they, as well as our organs, will be affected.

“My patients expect the very best care from me, and I only use the highest quality nutritional supplements available on the market today.

We advocate organic, whole food nutrition(s) that are made from the highest quality real foods. These products contain all the synergistic components including vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, amino acids, and hundreds of organic compounds. These nutritional supplements are digested, absorbed, and utilized extremely efficiently. In essence we are feeding the body nutrition where we are usually devoid in our diets. No one has the optimal diet anymore due to the depletion of our nutritive soils.

In my practice we only trust the outstanding reputation of Standard Process and believe their products will help improve the quality of my patients’ lives.”

Standard Process is a company located in Palmyra, WI that was founded by Dr. Royal Lee in 1929. Dr. Lee fought endlessly against the FDA, ADA, AMA and commercial food giants to combat the likes of high fructose corn syrup, trans fat, devitalized food products, fluoride, and other important topics.

Standard Process uses only “whole-food” supplements that provide nutrition though natural organic sources, as opposed to synthetic manufactured vitamins. These supplements are only available to healthcare providers and are developed based on years of research.

What is the Wrong Nutrition?

Unfortunately, people have no clue! 99% of “nutritional” products sold and used in the U.S.A. are made from synthetic chemicals that are formulated in some laboratory. They are fractionated, and devoid of any nutrients. They cause an imbalance and can deplete the body of important elements and do more harm then good. We consume more “vitamin and mineral supplements” than all other countries in the world combined yet we rank 37th in overall health!

“One of the biggest tragedies of human civilization is the precedence of chemical therapy over nutrition. It’s a substitution of artificial therapy over natural, of poisons over food, in which we are feeding people poison in trying to correct the reactions of starvation.”
-Dr. Royal Lee 1951
