Diet and Nutrition


Dr. Gil Alvarado, N.D., L.Ac., Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM) is a naturopathic physician and acupuncturist with over 35 years experience helping people improve their health.

Twenty years ago one of Dr. Gil’s patients brought him a video of a television show where a so called expert was telling people that what a person ate had no effect on their health and was irrelevant for their healing. Since this patient had already received so much benefit from the dietary help Dr. Gil had given her, she was stunned by the level of this “experts” ignorance.

Today most people are aware that diet has an effect on their health. Often people who come to Dr. Gil for care have previoiusly tried one or more approaches to improving their way of eating, but it either hasn’t helped them, or hasn’t helped them enough.

In the last fifty-plus years nutritional science has made many advancements. These advancements confirm the absolute necessity of properly prepared nutritionally rich foods and balanced meals. These advancements also conclusively demonstrate the benefits of specific nutrients for different conditions that people suffer from. The proper use of these nutrients can and has saved countless people from unnecessary suffering and disease.

Dr. Gil evaluates the nutritional needs of everyone who comes to him for care and offers each person a personalized dietary and nutritional program. By following this program along with the other treatments that Dr. Gil offers to them, most people have eliminated their symptoms, corrected the cause of their problems, and restored their good health.

Anything that you do every day will have an effect on your life. You eat every day. By receiving and following a dietary and nutritional program that is right for you every day, you will help yourself to be well.
