NUTRITION
Good nutrition can help prevent disease, promote health and help individuals achieve general health and well-being. There are six categories of nutrients that the body needs to acquire from food: protein, carbohydrates, fat, fibers, vitamins and minerals, and water.

To maintain a healthy lifestyle the USDA recommends adults consume 80% vegetables, fruits and grains and 20% meat, eggs, and dairy products.

Nutritional therapy and dietary modifications can be prescribed for a variety of complaints including allergies, anemia, arthritis, colds, depressions, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, high or low blood pressure, insomnia, headaches, obesity, pregnancy, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), respiratory conditions, and stress.

ORGANIX DYSBIOSIS PROFILE TESTING
Dysbiosis is an imbalance in the microecology of the digestive tract. At Worden Wellness Center, we test for Dysbiosis using the “Organix Dysbiosis Profile“ to measure the by-products of bacterial and yeast metabolism that are excreted in urine. The Organix Dysbiosis Profile is particularly useful in detecting the presence of pathogenic microbial overgrowth and monitoring therapy. When the microbial balance of the gut is disturbed, opportunistic, or "bad," bacteria can overgrow and mitigate the effects of the "good," predominant bacteria needed for a healthy gut. Intestinal Dysbiosis can be a significant factor in many health problems such as chronic fatigue syndrome, auto-immune diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic digestive problems and weight gain.

FOOD ALLERGIES AND GLUTEN TESTING
A food allergy is an abnormal response to food that is triggered by a specific reaction in the immune system and expressed by certain, often characteristic, symptoms. Allergens can induce an array of symptoms including hives or eczema, and when they reach the airways, they can cause asthma. In some cases, delayed food allergies could be the cause of many symptoms such as migraines, joint pains, and blood sugar alterations. We test for food allergies and create a customized program for eliminating food allergies and strengthening the immune system.

HEAVY METAL TOXICITY
Testing and elimination of heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, that cause oxidative damage, which can result in fatigue, autoimmune diseases, learning disabilities, nervous system disorders and cardiovascular disease.

ANTI – AGING PROGRAMS
Aging is not inevitable. To live 100 years in a healthy state is not out of the question if we just take care of ourselves. At Worden Wellness Center, we customize programs for each patient to maximize a healthy life span using many different modalities such as diet, exercise, and nutritional supplementation and hormone balancing.
