Balanced Nutrition Program
Dr. Bartnof has a keen interest in the effects of nutrition on health and disease. Every patient becomes a health partner with Dr. Bartnof as he devises a complete, individualized nutritional program called Healthspan Nutrition Plan®. It is tailored to optimize the patient's healthspan and quality of life. This will often include nutrition that has a
- Low glycemic (blood sugar) load and that
- Helps to block "inflammation" (abnormal immune response).
Newer research indicates that inflammation has been associated with many diseases, including heart attacks, stroke, dementia (loss of thinking, memory) and certain types of cancers.
Dr. Bartnof believes that an optimal nutritional program is one that is balanced with protein, "good" carbohydrates, "good" oils and fats, as well as appropriate vitamins, macro-minerals, micro-minerals, trace elements, and supplements--tailored to the individual patient's needs. Drinking clean water daily and avoiding pollutants and toxins in food are both very important.
The emerging field of "nutrigenomics" (how food effects gene products) may also help Dr. Bartnof design an individualized nutrition program for each patient.
