Metabolic Typing
Based on the work of Dr. Weston Price, it is clear that when people eat foods consistent with their culture’s indigenous diet they stay healthier and live longer. Because modern society is a melting pot of many different heritages, indigenous diets in their true sense no longer exist. The Standard American Diet is far from healthy and certainly not indigenous.

Metabolic Typing...

  • is a very specific and individualized nutritional and dietary system based upon controls in the body that regulate millions of biochemical reactions taking place every day

  • through complex questionnaires and testing, Metabolic Typing helps determine what type of nutrition and which nutritional supplements are necessary for each person to reach their optimal health.

  • is a way to find your own “indigenous diet” in order to heal and maintain good health.

Environmental Medicine
The interdependent relationship between human beings and the environment is well recognized but often ignored. Common sense tells us that the health of all living things depends on the health of our planet. After centuries of polluting our air, water, and soil, people (and other living creatures) are paying the price in the form of toxic exposures. Air we breathe, water we drink, food we grow and harvest, as well as high levels of stress in our daily lives, are all sources of toxic exposure leading to acute and chronic illnesses. These toxic exposures also contribute to the growing ineffectiveness of current medical treatments. Unfortunately, pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and many, many more chemicals are a part of our daily work and lives and are very difficult to avoid, thus exposing all of us to one degree or another. At Oaktree Wellness Center, we recognize this problem and have undergone specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses due to toxic exposures. We are experienced in the various methods of detecting harmful substances in the body and methods to help detoxify and cleanse exposed individuals.

Nutritional Therapies
Many of the chronic health problems that plague Americans today are the result of poor diet and lifestyle choices. Illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cancer, and gastrointestinal problems develop as a consequence of the foods we choose. By changing our diets and adopting a healthy lifestyle, we can often change or reverse the course of an illness and restore health. Our nutritional advice is based on awareness that each person is unique and has different nutritional requirements.

Anti-Aging
Growing older does not have to mean the loss of health, mind and independence. In fact, research seems to indicate the opposite- by paying attention to lifestyle many older individuals can live active, healthy lives. Nutritional investigations are also uncovering the vital role vitamins and minerals play in age related illnesses. Dr. Drost will help you create a healthy living program to maximize your vitality.
