Dr. Blerta Dimo is our in-house Functional Nutritionist at South Jersey Holistic. As an integrative and functional nutritionist with medical background, her mission is not only to help and educate patients in the short term, but give them the right tools to live healthy.
Functional nutrition is the science that takes into consideration the fundamental role our gut plays in health. It recognizes that food is much more than calories and can be either a slow acting poison or the most cost-effective medicine. The latest research clearly shows that impaired gut health is connected to a wide range of untreatable medical conditions, such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, IBS, depression, asthma, allergies, eczema, psoriasis, unexplained infertility etc. One of the major shortcomings of conventional medicine, is that it views the body simplistically as a sum of separate parts; we have different doctors for each of these parts—cardiologists for the heart, gastroenterologists for the GI system, pulmonologists for the lungs, etc. On the contrary Homeopathy, as part of integrative medicine, is holistic because it treats the person as a whole rather than focusing on a labeled sickness and appreciates that the majority of chronic diseases are rooted in the gut. In that concept treatment provided by a functional nutritionist is crucial in holistic approach towards reversing disease and optimizing health.
