Nutrition and Disorders Q & A

Rogers Medical Ltd.

What is nutrition medicine?

Appropriate nutrition is crucial for managing symptoms of certain diseases or healing from chronic conditions.

With nutrition medicine, Dr. Rogers first aims to understand the profile of your health history and your symptoms. When she accomplishes this, she can determine the underlying cause of the problem and how nutritional changes can help.

While there’s no shortage of diets to follow or nutritional advice to find, nutrition therapy is most effective when done with an individualized approach. Considering your lifestyle, preferences, and needs, Dr. Rogers can come up with a plan that works for you.  

Nutrition medicine can also easily complement other healing modalities.

What problems can be caused by nutrition?

Your nutrition habits can cause or worsen many health issues. What you eat could cause common conditions, such as:

  • Crohn’s disease
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Chronic diarrhea or constipation
  • Bloating
  • Eczema
  • Grave’s disease
  • Hashimoto’s
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Celiac disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Diabetes

While every person is different, many people can benefit from eliminating or reducing the presence of inflammatory foods in their diet. These may include foods that contain gluten, processed sugars, unhealthy fats, dairy, or red meat.

How will I benefit from treatment?
