Salad-edgedThe U.S. government reports that 70% of all Americans are not getting the nutrients they need in order to avoid long-term nutrient deficiency, let alone enough of the proper nutrients to ensure a happy, healthy, well-balanced life.

The only nutritional formulations we carry in our office are whole food, organic.  It is vital that the supplements be whole food as that is the only way to ensure the body is able to assimilate and utilize all the nutrients contained within the formulation.  You simply  cannot get that kind of assimilation from a supplement that is manufactured in a lab.  Additionally, vitamins that are not whole food are “fractionalized” by using petroleum products or even acetone in the production process.  The body can absorb the lab-made vitamins, but cannot utilize them and they frequently cause unpleasant side effects, such as abdominal discomfort, headaches or they simply, ” don’t work.”

We have come to define health as the, “absence of disease,” or the, “absence of symptoms.”  This is not the body’s definition of health.  The body wants to be balanced and function in a state of homeostasis.  It can only accomplish this by being fed a diet of nutritious foods in their most natural state as possible, ample water, no prepackaged or prepared foods and be exposed to as few chemical toxins as possible. This does not reflect the typical American diet…high in sodium, sugars, artificial coloring, saturated fats and junk food and very low in healthy vegetables, fruits and good-fat proteins.  Eating a poor, American-type diet over a period of time has led to childhood and early adult-onset type 2 diabetes, rampant cardiovascular disease, ADHD in our children (and, ever- more adults), various types of intestinal disorders and diseases and, perhaps the most insidious of all, stress-related disorders, not the least of which is depression.  One cannot look at a person and see any results of most of these diseases….therefore, we think we’re a healthy population while we are sinking under the weight of physiological imbalances and breakdown.

Dr. Hersh offers physiological nutritional therapy to those who desire to live a whole, healthy and balanced life.  Many of the chronic conditions that plague us can be helped through identifying the system or systems that are imbalanced, thus inhibiting our body from functioning properly.  Once the imbalances are identified, through a complete nutritional, physiological work-up, individualized protocols are begun, utilizing whole food, organic formulations.  As the body usually takes from 9 months to 2 years to completely heal, Dr. Hersh meets with the patient once a month in order to facilitate the healing process from the acute stage, through the supportive/healing stage, into the wellness stage.  Dr. Hersh also offers phone consultations with those who are unable to come into the office.  You may find the information located on the, “First Visit,” page under the “Phone Consultation,” section for those who wish to choose this option.
