Our mission at Carolina Integrative Medicine is to provide for the health, vitality and wellness of our patients. We strive to create a therapeutic relationship with our patients often described as Functional Medicine. We certainly treat patients with traditional diseases, but move beyond that focus to a more whole-system, patient-centered approach. We are looking not just at a set of isolated symptoms, but at the interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that influence long-term health and quality of life, as well as complex chronic disease.
One of the most important aspects of this functional or integrative approach to medicine is the use of therapeutic products known as nutraceuticals. This portmanteau of the words nutrition and pharmaceutical was coined 25 years ago in order to give identity to an area of health, medicine and research into natural substances that provide medical or health benefits including prevention and treatment of disease as well as providing general vitality. These natural substances are formulated to provide supplements to a basic diet which may be lacking in critical nutrients.
Not All Supplements are Created Equal
There are supplements available everywhere. You see them advertised; your friends and neighbors take something that they suggest you try. You pick up something at the grocery store because it is on sale and it sounds good. Knowing that there is a wide variety of supplements to choose from, I have been continuously researching for the best, most effective, most natural nutraceutical products available. I have always recommended pharmaceutical grade supplements formulated through research and physician consultation.
Recently, research has led me to products from XYMOGEN, an independent health sciences company which has a reputation for introducing numerous innovations to the Functional Medicine community. They have an impressive medical board of advisors which has enabled them to develop a very clinically relevant and exclusively professional formula line. Their research based therapeutic doses of nutrients are the highest quality available.
Their products are academically researched in partnerships with well-known institutions such as John Hopkins University. Their research and development initiatives are led by neurologist, Dr. David Perlmutter. Their leadership in areas such as the modulation of neurological disorders and other cutting-edge medical areas is very impressive.
But I am also impressed by the quality of their products which many of us need on an on-going basis because of our standard American diets, the environmental toxins we encounter daily, and a life-style that keeps us inside and often under stress.
