At The Wellness Way, we eat, sleep, and drink good nutrition! It is a fact now that optimal health is linked to a high quality, nutritious diet. The importance of good nutrition is the main preventive measure against a high number of human diseases! It can literally be a matter of enjoying life to the fullest, or a life of pain, disease, and “just coping.” Many people, although they may not realize it, are committing nutritional suicide. By eating bad foods low in nutrition and high in harmful ingredients, they are robbing their body of life . . . one mouthful at a time.
A poor diet equals poor function. If you are have symptoms or some kind of illness, it is obvious that some system or part of your body is not functioning properly. Our desire is to assist you in restoring that proper function so that you can regain and maintain abundant health.

Why do you eat?
Do you ever think about why you eat? Well, the easy answers are because you are hungry and your stomach is rumbling. Sometimes you might also eat because you are tired, bored, sad or happy. Or maybe it’s because that chocolate candy bar looks so good!
Those are some of the emotional and physical reasons why you eat, but do you ever put much thought into why your body needs food? Not just any food, by the way, but healthy, good-for-you food? The foods you eat provide the energy your body needs to function. Just like you need to put fuel in your car or recharge your cell phone battery, your body needs to be fed energy-providing foods every day. A healthy diet will give your body plenty of energy and raw materials you need to stay healthy.
The Amazing Body
The human body is truly remarkable. Yes, we all get sick at some time or another, but if you give the body all the nutrients it craves, it will heal itself. There are a few processes that make us sick, bad genes, inflammation, oxidation, and a poor immune system. The good news is good food will alter these processes and positively affect health.
Hippocrates got it right.
Science is constantly demonstrating how a good diet boosts our immune systems and reduces inflammation and oxidation and turns off bad genes. Sticking to a nutritious, high quality diet will go a long way in curing illnesses and preventing diseases. Hippocrates had the right idea more than 2000 years ago when he said, “Let thy food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.”
Our nutrition programs are customized for each patient based on their test results.
We offer a number of tests that can determine what part of the body is breaking down and not functioning properly. These diagnostics can also reveal what may be causing the breakdown (heavy metal toxicity, biotoxins, etc.). Once we know that, we can offer a very specific nutritional protocol to detoxify and/or rebuild the body. When it begins to function properly, your symptoms will go away.
“Good nutrition provides energy and enthusiasm for life!”
What are the nutrition programs like?
The plan you will be given will be targeted for your condition. Each nutrition program is designed to restore function. Depending on your test results, you may need to avoid certain foods for a period of time. We give you a specific, easy-to-follow plan so that you are not left floundering. You will have recipes that you can make that are both nutritious and delicious.
Do I have to eat lettuce for the rest of my life?
Yes! Okay, we are just kidding! You will be surprised at how good healthy food can taste! When you go through one of our nutrition programs, you will be given a specific nutrition plan that includes many easy to make and tasty recipes. Our staff has “tested” all of the recipes. If it didn’t taste good, we didn’t include it! Of course, everybody’s palate is different, but you will be sure to find recipes you enjoy in the program you are given.
