We all know that nutrition is important, but yet it’s very easy to go through our daily lives and not pay much attention to what we eat and drink. Dr. Stephen Center of BodyLogicMD of San Diego has seen firsthand the amazing difference that a change in diet can make in someone’s overall wellness. He believes that every patient deserves a diet that is individualized for their needs, for their body and their chemistry.
In some cases, certain foods need to be eliminated because one is allergic to them or intolerant of them. Often specific foods need to be added to make up for deficiencies or imbalances, for their therapeutic benefits or to reduce risk factors for future diseases. Diagnostic testing may be advised to evaluate metabolism, toxicity and cellular function to determine need for essential vitamins and minerals or to identify food allergies and/or intolerance.
Once this valuable information is obtained corrective treatment can be implemented and improvements are typically noticeable right away. Dr. Center will carefully evaluate your medical history, lifestyle, and lab results and recommend a customized dietary plan for you, assisted by targeted nutritional supplements as needed. Specific dietary plans will address areas of concerns such as blood sugar regulation, weight and fat concerns, intestinal irregularity, inflammation, cardiovascular disease prevention, and brain function and memory — to name a few.*
Your weight loss plan will often be preceded by a 2 or more week detoxification program, an important intervention to help clear toxins from the liver. It is also one of the first steps in optimizing GI health, often combined to specific steps to enhance digestion and absorption of essential nutrients from your diet, if indicated, to keep your metabolism humming.
BodyLogicMD of San Diego also utilizes amino acid supplement therapy, proven in controlled clinical studies to be extremely effective in correcting causes of many forms of chronic fatigue, mood disorders, and neurological conditions.*
Dr. Center has been trained and is highly experienced in the use of amino acid therapy, as reported in ongoing clinical studies supported by major universities. This cutting edge protocol can correct neurotransmitter imbalances, eliminating or improving fatigue, adrenal burnout, depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. etc. It also shows significant benefits for patients who have ADD, ADHD, restless leg syndrome, and Parkinson’s disease.*
Dr. Center has been able to help patients taper and ultimately eliminate prescription drug use for mood disorders and assist patients with substance dependencies and addictions, including alcohol and cigarettes. His therapeutic options for weight loss, diet and nutrition are combined with an integrative medicine program that go far beyond the conventional choices offered to patients by their primary care doctors. Dr. Center has 30 years of experience in family practice and integrative medicine and his knowledge base is very diverse. He also participates in continuing medical education (including 108 hours in 2014), which supports his ability to offer wide range of diagnostic and treatment options. His current treatment plans are based on his education, practical experience and observation of his patients’ outcomes and are supported by clinical studies. Dr. Center modifies his practice on frequent basis to reflect what he believes is the most logical and sensible approach to helping his patients.
