During the first visit, a detailed anamnesis is performed in order to evaluate the patient’s metabolic and energetic status. After that, a body analysis is runthrough an InBody 520 impedance machine that has an error margin of only 3%. The impedance is run every visit to measure the patient’s evolution.
Depending on the patient’s goals and needs, a diet is discussed. The diet is formulated based on food combinations according to its absorption (acid or alkaline) in order to provide more energy and well-being to the patient. A very heterogeneous digestion causes unnecessary energy waste, compromising the body metabolism.
Another dietary factor addressed is biological rhythm. In the principles of Chronobiology, food is one of the three most important factors in the timing system of the biological clock, and can be a great ally in sleep disorders.
As a healthcare professional, I guide patients by considering their individuality and goals, preferences as well as needs. Therefore, I reaffirm that Diet and Prescription Supplements are prescribed according to each patient.
