Clinical Nutrition

Michelle Miller, MSACN
Clinical Nutritionist

The Clinical Nutrition approach at Physio Logic views health not as the absence of disease, but as a state of maintaining balance in all organs and systems of the body.

This type of balance allows for the body to function optimally as one whole unit. We consider symptoms as the body’s way of communicating with us. Instead of silencing that communication, the Clinical Nutrition program at Physio Logic is designed to determine the underlying causes of disease and dysfunction in the body.

Our Clinical nutrition programs include a metabolic assessment, state of the art body composition analysis, personalized diagnostic testing, and a customized nutrient, diet, and lifestyle plan.

We strive to make our recommendations unique and specific for each patient. By working closely with our acupuncturist, chiropractor, and physical therapists, we ensure a thorough, patient-centered approach.

Education is a significant part of our Clinical Nutrition program. We schedule workshops bi-monthly to help increase awareness on relevant issues. These free workshops and lectures are open to our patients and their friends and family. Our past workshop topics have ranged from chronic inflammation, understanding autoimmune diseases, and safe, effective detoxification.

Our clinical nutritionist is a key member of the FRESH Integrative Medicine team at Physio Logic.

What should I expect on my first consult with the clinical nutritionist?

 

Your first nutrition visit.

The initial Clinical Nutrition consult allows one hour to review your main complaints and goals, discuss overall health, family and medical/gynecologic histories, medications and supplement history, toxicity exposure, current dietary intake, potential issues with certain foods, allergies, sleep hygiene, physical activity, and other forms of therapy utilized. The initial consult will also involve a metabolic assessment and body composition analysis to help target potential imbalances or stressed areas of the body.

Body Composition Assessment

An individual’s muscle, fat, and water content are measured through our state of the art InBody 570 composition scale. The InBody technology allows us to assess percent body fat, basal metabolic rate, visceral fat level, and other essential health markers with reliable accuracy in less than 45 seconds. The InBody 570 plays a major role in our physical assessment, but is also used to assess progress throughout the clinical nutrition program. Learn more about this reliable form of assessment.

Blood Work Assessment

In order to assess the body as one integrated system, it is necessary for us to analyze specific markers in the blood. It is not unusual for us to request comprehensive blood work that includes a full thyroid panel, liver and kidney enzymes, inflammatory markers, immune system markers, electrolytes, cholesterol, and iron levels, along with other markers specific to your condition. We offer the convenience of having blood draws right in the office, and work with most major insurance plans to cover this blood work. Additionally, we are able to work with specialty labs that have developed top diagnostic tests for hormone levels, cortisol levels for adrenal function, autoimmune antibodies, food sensitivities, micronutrient levels, toxic metals and stool analysis.

Review of Findings

Once all test results are received, we will review all findings and explain the interconnection between health history, diet, your current symptoms, and lab results. Education is a significant part of our Clinical Nutrition program. It is important to us that we explain your test results to you in a way that is scientific, yet easy to understand. We strive to provide clients with the most up-to-date research and top of the line products when making recommendations.
