Nutrition

Conventional medicine has finally acknowledged the diet's central role in our overall health. But achieving a healthy diet is not as simple as it sounds.
More & more conflicting information is bombarding us everyday. Today this is good for you tommorrow it is bad and then it is gound to be good after all.
It is easy to get lost in the maze of all this conflicting information. Patients in our office have help and a resource to make common sense healthy choices when it comes to diet & nutrition. We try to keep current in the fields of vitamin/mineral and herbal therapy.

Dr. Joseph Kappes is also board certified in clinical nutrition. He has a masters degree and a post-doctoral degree in clinical nutrition.


Not only do our diets lead to many lifestyle induced diseases, our poor diets slow the healing process and place unnatural demands on our bodies. Your body has the amazing ability to turn the foods you eat into the energy it needs to power muscles, regulate organs, fuel the brain, and heal itself. Like a car's engine that "pings" with a low octane fuel, your body can show signs of poor fuel, too. Your hair, skin, energy level, and the state of your overall health can reveal signs of poor nutrition.
Today, with so many prepackaged convenience foods with high levels of salt, sugar, fats, and preservatives, you must be careful. It's easy to get used to the taste of these processed foods. This can make it hard to switch to the simple flavors of natural foods that are better for you. If you're committed to improving your nutrition, remember that like any new habit, it takes time. At first, these simple foods with their fiber, trace minerals, and vitamins intact can seem less , exciting than processed foods. Give it time. Soon you will prefer the taste, texture, and good health that proper nutrition can offer.
