FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION FOR PERFORMANCE

Functional nutrition is an integrative, or whole body, approach to assist you with finding out what your body needs to feel it’s best. In Sports Nutrition we focus on ways to optimize before, during and after your exercise training, race or competition. When we apply the art and science of functional nutrition, we expand that lens to consider what is happening inside your body on a daily basis that could be influencing energy, mood, digestion, and immune function.

We know that stress (chronic or acute), lack of sleep, changes in hormones, and food sensitivities over time begin to affect the way our body works. We don’t feel “sick” in the conventional way, but we do notice that something about the way our body is working is not the way it used to. The challenge in feeling better is that conventional or allopathic medicine was created on the foundation of specific symptoms to meet the criteria of specific diseases.

However, if you are an athlete who knows their body very well and doesn’t want to wait until you are sick enough with obvious symptoms that can be diagnosed in a medical clinic, you haven’t had many options to figure out what is “off” in your body.

Over the past decade, the options for consumers and patients to take control in finding answers to their health concerns has increased. Now many labs offer a multitude of tests that can purchased with the guidance of integrative or functional licensed healthcare practitioners.
