Importance of Nutritional Medicine

Importance of Nutritional Medicine

Have you ever wondered how what you eat and drink impacts your daily function, immune system, nutrient absorption, and overall health? At Environmental Health & Allergy Center in St. Louis, MO, Dr. Tipu Sultan takes a naturopathic approach to patient care. He places a high value on the nutrients you need for optimal health.

It's what Nature intends

A Diplomate of the American Board of Environmental Medicine, Dr. Tipu Sultan incorporates natural approaches and remedies to foster good health. What we breathe in and consume in the form of food and drink impacts how we feel and operate daily. Even the kind and number of pharmaceuticals we take change well-being and the prospect for recovery from many acute and chronic conditions.

In fact, naturopathic medicine emphasizes prevention, healing, and a strong immune system states the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians. As such, Dr. Sultan holistically approaches each of his patients, striving to fully understand:

  • Symptoms
  • Perceived problems
  • Lifestyle (including work, family, exercise habits, and more)

He wishes to understand underlying causes for poor health, reveal them, and treat them by optimizing body function rather than simply managing or covering up symptoms. He performs a complete history and physical examination on all his patients and is well-known for his compassion, attention to detail, and excellent listening skills.

Nutritional Medicine

As its name implies, nutritional medicine incorporates proper nutrition--healthy foods, supplements, water intake, and more. As ordered by Dr. Sultan, your blood work will reveal key aspects of physiological function and show where your nutritional habits may be failing you. What you consume changes in cholesterol levels, blood sugar, thyroid function, mood, and more.

Also, Dr. Sultan recommends dietary changes and nutritional supplements to increase:

  • Nutrient absorption
  • Water intake
  • Whole food intake without added chemicals or toxins
  • The strength and operation of the immune system
