Dr. Kulp’s philosophy has always been to treat the whole person. When the body experiences symptoms it can be a sign of a greater problem, something lying under the surface. Symptoms are signals that the body is out of balance. If we only treat the symptoms, the underlying causes may remain.
Dr. Kulp offers full-service, comprehensive nutritional consulting. Through a Functional Medicine approach, she believes in treating the whole person. Because every unique individual deserves a unique level of care.
Clinical nutrition is the linking of health and wellness with foods. Our bodies need many specific nutrients to stay healthy. When our body's are depleted of nutrients, we become ill. Sometimes these illnesses are not visible, and may not even be apparent to the individual. Clinical nutrition looks at how the body handles foods and nutrients. Does the body absorb these nutrients properly? Is the body digesting and metabolizing these nutrients? Remember, each individual person is unique in their specific nutritional needs. Therefore, it is always best to have a physician with nutritional knowledge evaluate you and your needs!
What are Supplements?
Supplements are natural vitamins and minerals that are used to support your body's needs and boost optimal health and wellness. Although the greatest way to receive the nutrients that you need are through good food choices, for some that may not be enough. Supplements can aid a person in making sure that their body is getting the amount of vitamins and nutrients that it needs to stay healthy. The benefits of supplements become even greater when combined with healthy foods and exercise. Again, although supplements are a wonderful source of vitamins and nutrients, taking too much of certain supplements can cause toxicity in the body and decrease the potency of any prescription drugs that one may be taking. Always have a physician with nutritional knowledge evaluate you to find out what supplements, and how much, is appropriate for you!
