Did you know that 90% of people suffering a health malady have a nutritionally based issue and do not know it?

Doctor Robert Cowan, a certified Diplomate in Clinical Nutrition, can help you achieve optimal wellness by uncovering your hidden nutritional problems.

Your nutritional evaluation at Acupuncture and Chiropractic Center of Pensacola will consist of these important steps:

  • Evaluation of the health information you provide to us on your intake forms.
  • Review of all outside information that may assist in the evaluation such as previous testing that has been performed. Such tests are important and must to accompany your intake forms.
  • A Biomeridian study to evaluate the organ systems of the body.
    (The Biomeridian is used to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your energetic health and balance. This process involves measuring the electrical conductivity at responsive “meridian points” on the skin—typically on the hands and feet. The locations of the test points generally correspond to those of acupuncture points. These measurements are recorded using the Biomeridian to help provide a profile of your current health status.)
  • A one-on-one consultation to determine if any further information is needed.

During the course of the consultation, Dr. Cowan may determine that additional information is needed to complete the evaluation. If so, he will consider the following tests:

  • Blood work to evaluate the organ systems of your body.
    Conventional laboratory reference ranges are designed to identify and diagnose disease states and pathology. We use “Optimal Functional Ranges” that are tighter than the conventional reference ranges to increase sensitivity and reveal trends in patterns of dysfunction.
  • Saliva testing for male and female hormones
  • Comprehensive Stool Analysis to assess digestive function and find possible stealth infections.

Lastly, Dr. Cowan will employ a rigorous approach in changing your body’s compensated physiology, or in another way of saying, “rebooting your body’s health” with a customized nutritional program.
