Nutrition and the therapeutic use of foods have always been a cornerstone of naturopathic medicine.
In 500 B.C., Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said “Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food.”
Huang ti—the yellow emperor back in ancient China—said that “treating a patient once they have a full-blown illness is like digging a well when you are already thirsty.”
A healthy body relies on healthy food, eaten in the proper proportions and combined properly. And just like there are no two individuals who are the same, there is no one diet that will suit each person’s individual needs.
Unlike medical doctors who receive between one and three hours of clinical nutrition in medical schools like Harvard and Stanford, naturopathic physicians receive 220 hours of clinical nutrition in the classroom during their four years in their accredited medical school. That is why, when you visit Dr. Ostroff at the Center for Natural Healing, she will guide you in selecting the most advantageous foods for you to build healthy blood, cleanse your body and regain maximal efficiency in your body’s organs. This translates into more utilizable energy for you to do what you love to do.
Your complete diet will be evaluated, and Dr. Ostroff from Honolulu, Hawaii, on the island of Oahu, will slowly insert recommendations on how you can make easy and delicious changes that will ensure greater results with your overall health program, getting you closer to your ideal weight and a beautiful and healthy body. (Yes, even more beautiful than it is now!)
