"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." - Hippocrates
The theories of Hippocrates have shaped medicine as we know it. All healthcare practitioners even take the Hippocratic Oath to "first do no harm" before they can become licensed. With greater innovation and technological advances in medical care, however, we have lost sight of the most basic, and possibly most important medical theory of all: that food is medicine. Every time we sit down for a meal there is an opportunity to satisfy our taste buds as well as fuel our bodies. Megan honors this truth by providing customized nutritional counseling that is based on each individual patient's needs. Using a whole foods approach, Megan incorporates modern research on food biochemistry with the fundamentals of oriental medicine nutritional therapy. She helps patients discover their metabolic type so that food choices can be made to optimize brain and body function, while helping to alleviate acute medical conditions. Her holistic approach addresses the "when", "where" and "why" of eating habits as much as the "what" of food. This style of counseling empowers patients to effect life-long changes that not only address their current condition, but also act as powerful prevention.
