A healthy diet is the foundation of good health. Every tissue, cell, hormone and molecule of your body is made from the nutrients that you absorb from your diet. But what is the healthiest diet for you? Medical Nutrition Therapy will decipher this for you.
Individualized Nutritional Therapy
Naturopathic Doctors are experts in Clinical Nutrition. They recognize that every person is an individual and that your ideal diet will be as unique as you are. Using food as medicine, Dr. Camille Nghiem-Phu, ND will be your nutrition consultant and will create the healthiest possible foundation for your body and mind through individualized food choices and meal planning.

Naturally Sustainable Weight Loss with Nutritional Therapy
A naturopathic approach to weight loss is about learning how to live a healthy balance in body, mind and spirit. To help you end your struggle with your weight, Dr. Nghiem-Phu may suggest a “blood test” (internal link to “Food Allergies vs. Food Intolerances” webpage) to identify which foods increase your metabolism, or which foods produce inflammation in the immune system to hold onto body fat. She will also work with you to identify the hormonal, environmental, nutritional and mental-emotional factors that are involved and help you learn lifelong skills to overcome them. As your Nutritional Consultant Markham, Dr. Nghiem-Phu will teach you why popular strategies like calorie-cutting, low-fat diets, excessive cardio or using artificial sweeteners are ineffective. These methods can actually cause you to gain more weight, and can create additional health problems. You’ll receive expert nutritional knowledge, the appropriate diagnostic testing and unconditional support for your journey toward achieving a healthy body weight and body composition for life.
To optimize your results, we’ll think beyond conventional concepts to identify:
- Nutritional deficiencies that may be contributing your symptoms

- Digestive organs need special attention to resolve inflammation and improve your absorption of important nutrients
- Ways to prevent the development of chronic disease through simple food choices
- Healing foods and herbs that will help to resolve symptoms, have more energy and feel better in the long-term
- The role of toxins and hormone imbalances that are preventing you from losing weight

- Individualized strategies for weight loss and achieving and maintaining a healthy, strong body
- Ways to maximize the benefits of your exercise plan or athletic workouts with the right foods and supplements at the right times
