Nutritional medicine is a core modality at VitalShip.

In this holistic approach to the interactions of both nutrition and its effects on our physical bodies, we work to ensure your body is supplied with the correct balance of foods, vitamins, and minerals. When we use this medicine in the treatment of sickness or diseases we look for the underlying causes tied to genetics, current nutrition program, and environmental factors.

What is this type of medicine?

Nutritional Medicine is based on the principle that nutrients, including essential micronutrients, are required for the proper functioning of all the biochemical processes on which our bodies depend. Therefore, when treating symptoms or diseases, we look for the underlying causes which, although often partly genetic, are usually very much tied up with nutritional and environmental factors. This is in contrast to the tendency in the conventional medical approach to treat symptoms by means of drugs or surgery.
