Advancing Medicine with Food and Nutrients

Food and nutrients have historically served as the cornerstone of medicine, with modern medical practices being built upon these foundations.

Unfortunately, over the years there has been a separation between food and medicine due to technical advancements overshadowing natural remedies. The healing powers of food have been overshadowed by progress in technology.

Ingrid Kohlstadt, MD, MPH - a board-certified physician in General Preventive Medicine has been selected for the prestigious honor of Fellow by both the American College of Nutrition and the American College of Preventive Medicine.

With the guidance of Dr. Kohlstadt, this authoritative reference arms clinicians with all the knowledge they need to most effectively use nutritional medicine in their work environment today.

Dreadful exposures like molds, microbe invasions, xenoestrogens, heavy metals, and non-reactive nanoparticles can all be disastrous.

For individuals with preexisting medical conditions, food safety is an essential element of their health. People must be aware of the potential adverse effects that artificial sweeteners can have on them; they should also pay attention to labels for allergens like gluten.

Furthermore, if someone has undergone bariatric surgery or been exposed to ionizing radiation from foods, there are critical dietary restrictions that need to be followed at all times - not only in eating out but also when preparing meals at home.

Lastly, mycotoxins found in food must always remain a top priority for people looking to maintain good health and nutrition standards.

Consumer advocacy has never been more important when it comes to navigating the claims of medical foods and dietary supplements. With the right knowledge and support, consumers can be empowered to make informed decisions about their health needs.

Nutritionists have long known that physical forces, such as ultraviolet light kickstarting vitamin D production and non-ionizing radiation influencing brain glucose metabolism, can significantly impact one's dietary needs.

Additionally, overeating or an excessive body fat percentage has been linked to chronic inflammation and dehydration.

Establishing resilience both at the individual and public health levels requires preventive medicine.
