Addressing Nutritional Deficiencies:
In today’s world, the prevalence of toxins and exogenous hormones in our environment and food sources has led to an increase in health problems and infertility related to nutritional deficiencies. At Midtown AcuCare, we analyze these deficiencies on an individual basis and prescribe tailored diets to reverse their effects, promoting healing and improved reproductive health.
Personalized Nutritional Guidance:
During your office visit for acupuncture treatment, our acupuncturists will gladly discuss various foods and provide you with a nutritional guideline handout. We are committed to offering only the highest quality nutritional supplements and organic food supplements to support your overall well-being.
General Nutritional Guidelines:
To ensure optimal hormone metabolism, it is essential to consume an adequate number of calories throughout the day. Lightly cook all foods, excluding fruit, to enhance digestibility. Consume food and drinks at room temperature or warmer for improved balance. Prioritize organically grown food whenever possible to maximize nutritional value and minimize toxin exposure. Incorporate plenty of organic fruits and dark green vegetables into your diet for essential nutrients. Maintain a moderate intake of high-quality protein from animal or vegetable sources, including high-grade protein shakes. Include oily, wild-caught fish such as salmon, mackerel, and sardines for their beneficial properties. Limit consumption of high-mercury content fish such as tuna, halibut, seabass, and swordfish. Incorporate nuts and seeds into your meals for added nutrition. Choose complex carbohydrates or whole grains like brown rice, millet, quinoa, oats, and barley for sustained energy.
Foods to Avoid:
Mung beans, excess caffeine, alcohol, junk food / processed foods, non-organic or nitrate-containing luncheon meat, nutmeg, hibiscus, penny royal, goldenseal, echinacea, shellfish
