Call 510-527-0244

What if you could impact not only the health of your teeth and gums but also your bones, skin, immune system, mood, and much more with something as simple as the food on your plate?

With nutrition therapy, you can!

Targeted, individualized nutrition support is an excellent tool for anyone interested in taking an active role in their health and supporting their body through whole foods and nutritional supplements.

Nutrition therapy is especially effective in supporting:

• Blood sugar regulation
• Weight loss and fitness goals
• Digestive support and leaky gut
• Allergies and inflammation
• Autoimmune conditions
• Bone and teeth health
• Improving energy and mood
• Healthy sleep and stress management
• Detoxification and general wellbeing


Our Integrative Approach

We believe that healthy teeth and healthy bodies start with the food on your plate. By making healthy dietary decisions, you can support your long-term and short-term health and fitness goals. Good food supports your overall well-being, energy and mood, and can minimize existing symptoms.

Nutrition is an excellent adjunct to approaching and addressing health concerns (or minimizing risk of future health issues) and we encourage you to add whole foods and targeted nutrition recommendations to your health journey!

Jessie Black NC, our on-site certified nutritionist, has a background in integrative nutrition and tailors her recommendations to every individual. A graduate of Bauman College's nutrition program, she is in the process of completing her M.S. in Nutrition and Integrative Health.

We believe that there is no single dietary approach that is ideal for every person. Rather, your individual and cultural background, medical history, personal health goals, and dietary preferences are ESSENTIAL to crafting the best plan for you. Our needs and preferences change over time, so we want to give you the tools, education, and resources to create long-lasting and sustainable habits that support your own unique needs.

Mercury Detoxification Support

For patients seeking nutritional support in preparing for amalgam removal, we offer nutrition therapy and an office mercury detoxification protocol. 

This involves a review of dietary and lifestyle habits as well as therapeutic supplement recommendations in order to:

  • Maximize your body's ability to gently and naturally detoxify from heavy metal exposure
  • Support healthy liver and GI function
  • Improve natural chelation and elimination of mercury from the body
  • Boost immune function in preparation for amalgam removal
  • Reduce or eliminate additional burdens to your immune system in your diet and environment
  • Minimize symptoms associated with mercury exposure and boost overall health and vitality through whole foods and targeted supplementation

If you are interested in nutritional detoxification in preparation for your amalgam replacements, please reach out to our office to schedule a visit with our nutritionist, Jessie.

We recommend going through this protocol a month or so before you replace your amalgam fillings for maximum benefit, but it can support your health and detoxification at any stage.
