Here at Wiseman Family Practice we believe it is important to be at the forefront of medical nutrition to fight and prevent disease. We believe that many pharmaceutical medications can be replaced with safer nutraceutical options. We also believe that the increasing amount of toxins in our food, water, and environment are the root cause of many of the disease processes we are seeing today. To address this, we focus on prevention and when necessary use effective, safer, and more natural therapies that address the core of the problem, which are an alternative to many of the toxic pharmaceutical options given by traditional medicine today. Our goal is simple – identify the root cause of the problem, eliminate it, and allow the body to naturally heal. In many cases we augment this healing process through various supplements, herbs, and nutraceuticals that are effective and natural.
With an increasing number of disease processes being caused by being overweight, we believe that proper nutritional and dietary counseling is paramount to maintaining one’s optimal weight and thus one’s total internal wellness. Our dietary philosophy is centered around “real” food choices – organic, non-processed food that is sustainable for both the individual and the environment. When food is approached this way, most “diets” become obsolete and patients understand the meaning of true health and energy.
Below is a sample list of symptoms our medical nutrition practice may help patients overcome or manage effectively:
- Cancer Nutrition
- Chronic Fatigue
- Weight Loss/Weight Maintenance
- Arthritis and other Joint Problems
- ADHD in both Adults and Children
- Chronic Dermatological Issues
- Mood Disorders including Anxiety and Depression
- Allergy Disorders/Asthma
- Perimenopause/Menopause and other Hormonal Disorders
- Learning Disabilities
- Chronic Pain
- Developmental Disorders including Autism
- Autoimmune Disorders
- Chronic Headaches
Patient education is outstanding! The practice provides articles and YouTube videos on their website of things we discuss during visits. Having a dedicated NP like Meagan Wempe is awesome, too, because she’s always interested in any questions I have about diet, taking supplements, or really any way that I want to improve my health. The fact that they connect their patients with natural foods from farms around Austin is pretty amazing.
