"We specialize in treating Cardio-Metabolic Disorders. We help you assist your patients with  achieving  Cardio-metabolic resilience"

Chronic Kidney Disease

Stages 1 - 3

Do you or someone you know have any of the following:

  • Chronic Kidney Disease

  • Diabetes

  • Hypertension / High Blood Pressure

  • Overweight / Obesity

  • Sleep Apnea

  • Hypothyroidism 

  • Elevated cholesterol level

If you answered yes to any of these you, it is imperative that you take your health into your hands and immediately adjust your dietary, medication and lifestyle routines in order to improve and/or reverse these disorders in order to reduce the risk of developing kidney disease and or slow the progression of kidney disease if you in fact have it. 

We specialize in identifying and addressing sub-clinical markers of cardi-ometobolic disorders that are the drivers of cardiovascular damage and loss of renal function.

17 Functional Nutrition Strategies We Use:

We Utilize Functional Strategies for Improving Cardio-Metabolic Resilience by Addressing the Following:

  2. Improve the bodies ability to use insulin 

  3. Reduce inflammatory signaling

  4. Protect and improving pancreatic beta cell functioning (key for glucose management)

  5. Reduce postprandial hyper-insulinemia

  6. Reduce lipoprotein atherogenicity

  7. Improve endothelial function

  8. Reducing glycation and the formation and accumulation of advanced glycation endproducts (In Glycation sugars bind to proteins. The proteins then change structure and loose function).

  9. Modulate and balance coagulation (clotting) capacity 

  10. Improve mitochondrial efficiency (the body's ability to produce and use energy)

  11. Reduce oxidative burden (Oxidative stress is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body).

  12. Restore metabolically favorable gut microbiota

  13. Reduce circulating free fatty acids

  14. Improve appropriate endocrine signaling
