Customized Nutrition

What is customized nutrition?

Like your fingerprints, your metabolic and biological profile is unique to you. To optimize your personal health and wellness, you need to provide your body with the nutrients it needs to run at its best. True Health Center understands no one way of eating works for everyone and uses objective data, including a blood spot test and food sensitivity panel, to create a customized nutrition plan.

What is a blood spot test?

Dried blood spot tests aren’t new, but are primarily used for infants to identify diseases that can’t be diagnosed from a physical exam. The test looks for genetic abnormalities to assess for diseases such as:

  • Maple syrup urine disease
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Congenital hypothyroidism
  • Cystic fibrosis

But the blood spot test isn’t limited to infants. True Health Center uses the specialized test to help create your customized nutrition plan based on your genetic profile. Certain genetic traits increase your risk of chronic diseases, and your food choices can trigger the gene and the disease.

What is a food sensitivity panel?

To assess tolerance to various foods in order to create your custom nutrition plan, True Health Center offers a food sensitivity panel. These tests look at how your body responds to various foods.

Eating foods your body can’t tolerate may lead to a number of symptoms, such as:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Muscle cramps or leg numbness

Identifying foods your body can’t tolerate and eliminating them from your diet may help you feel better and improve your health.

What can I expect with a customized nutrition plan?

The health professionals at True Health Center create custom nutrition plans based on the information obtained from your blood spot and food sensitivity testing. Your eating plan includes foods you should eat and foods to avoid. It may also include when to eat and how much to help keep energy levels up and weight under control.

True Health Center also offers supplementation to ensure your body gets all the nutrients it needs to optimize health and nutrition.
