Clinical nutrition is a key treatment modality in naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic doctors study nutrition throughout the 4 years of naturopathic medical school. Beginning with bio-chemistry, we are trained in how key nutrients affect physiology, the basis of food intolerance and true food allergies, as well as dietary modification to suit the medical needs of our patients.
Message from Dr. Kelly Parcell:
I utilize clinical nutrition with every patient. Food is a foundation of health and educating patients on how to use food for medicine is paramount in my practice. Food as medicine has been a main practice in my own life as well and as I have stated before, I always practice what I preach. As a child, food as medicine was enforced in our house. My twin sister and I had medical concerns which required my parents to modify our dietary intake at a young age. Throughout my years of competitive athletics, I experimented with various dietary regimes to enhance my performance. I have walked the spectrum of food bandwagons from veganism to the Zone diet in my own life and with patients over the past 13 years. I will help you find the most tailored food plan to elicit optimal health and healing.
