Nutritional Guidance

Nutritional guidance is one of the many services offered at Above & Beyond Acupuncture. We believe that individuals who are aware of what they eat, when they eat and how they eat have the ability to better resist illness and maintain internal harmony.

Our practitioners can provide information as to which foods would be beneficial for specific conditions, as well as which foods should be avoided. For example, patients who suffer from excess mucous or phlegm as well as fatigue, foggy head, poor memory, and loose stool should try removing dairy from their diet. This is due to how dairy promotes dampness in the body that can lead to adverse symptoms.

One tool that is often used with nutritional guidance is a food diary. This log can be employed to help better analyze and keep track of nutritional consumption as well as assisting in the creation of a nutritional plan to promote health and resolve illness.

The ultimate goal is to provide the necessary support so that patients can make educated dietary decisions that will enrich their lives.
