Customized Nutrition

Dr. Fred Arnold NMD, DC provides customized nutritional recommendations based upon individualized testing that involves a variety of different analysis methods: detailed patient history, nutrition questionnaire, specialized testing: blood, urine or saliva. Individualized treatment recommendations are based on the results of the different analysis methods to balance and correct imbalances in the body that contribute to each patient’s unique health condition.

This method of analysis and specific treatment is called Functional Medicine. Many health conditions are related to excesses or deficiencies in the body that can be improved upon and corrected with specific nutritional recommendations. Some of the more common health conditions that are related to imbalances in the body include:

  • Cardiovascular Disease: elevated cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, elevated homocysteine, elevated cardiac C-reactive protein
  • Osteoporosis: primary calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin K or manganese insufficiency or insufficiency secondary to hypochlorhydria
  • Constipation: insufficient water intake, lack of exercise, hypochlorhydria, hypothyroid
  • Blood Sugar Increased: trace mineral deficiency, obesity, lack of exercise, hormone dysfunction, excess carbohydrates and lack of fiber

As a Diplomate with the American Academy of Health Care providers, Dr. Fred Arnold incorporates traditional and specialized testing methods to identify imbalances in the body. Dependent upon each patient’s insurance coverage, the traditional laboratory testing is usually covered by their insurance. Non insurance lab prices are also available when the patient does not have insurance. Some of the specialized nutritional testing companies include SpectraCell, Genovia Diagnostics, and Mederian Valley Labs. Reduced pricing is also available for specialized lab testing.

Since no two patients are ever exactly alike, there is no “one size fits all” mentality when it comes to customized nutrition.
