At Atlantic Medicine & Wellness, nutritional supplementation is a corner stone of our treatment. The majority of adults in the United States take one or more dietary supplements either every day or occasionally. Today’s dietary supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbals and botanicals, amino acids, enzymes, and many other products.
Dietary supplements come in a variety of forms: traditional tablets, capsules, chewables, liquids and powders, as well as drinks and energy bars. If you don’t eat a nutritious variety of foods, some supplements might help you get adequate amounts of essential nutrients.
However, today’s complex and recurring conditions, as well as the aging process and responses to stress, often require an approach that includes treating nervous, endocrine and immune systems functions as an integrated approach. At Atlantic Medicine & Wellness, we test our patients with sophisticated blood analysis as well as neurotransmitter and adrenal testing. In this way, we can uncover nutritional imbalances which can affect many body systems. Once our physicians have the individual, integrated information from a patient’s lab results, we can better address these underlying imbalances.
At Atlantic Medicine & Wellness, we offer only exclusive nutritional supplementation that is medicinal grade only and not generally available to the public at health food chains and stores. Brands such as Perque®, Metagenics®, Neuroscience®, Orthomolecular®, Thorne®, Pure Encapsulations®, Designs for Health® and others are offered to our patients under our physicians’ careful supervision.
We have found that the result is increased effectiveness and decreased expense. Often patients begin to reach their optimal wellness through our thorough, sound plan of nutritional supplementation.
