Diet Therapy

One of the most commonly asked questions by patients is, “What should I be eating to get well and stay healthy?” Diet therapy is the therapeutic use of foods and food plans to treat a medical condition and assist the body in achieving better health.

Modern research has shown that certain diets and eating habits may cause or benefit a variety of diseases. Most people are aware of “Low Saturated Fat Diets” for high cholesterol conditions or “Low Carbohydrate / Sugar Diets” for the treatment of diabetes.

At KNC, individualized diet programs are prescribed for the specific need of the patient. This is very important as “One man’s food is another man’s poison”. Some examples include Food Allergy/Elimination, Intermittent Fasting, Low Carbohydrate/High Protein, Food Combining, Blood Type, Metabolic Typing, Vegetarian Based Diets and Weight Loss diets. Diet therapy is a core principle at KNC and we believe in the old saying, “You are what you eat”.
