Help your body heal itself...
Metabolic and Nutritional Assessments (M.A.N.A.) is a Kerrville-based, national nutritional consulting company. We custom design nutrition/lifestyle programs for individuals looking to obtain, regain, or simply maintain a state of dynamic health and vitality. Our programs are designed to support people of all ages and with different types of nutrition/health related issues. From common symptoms such as fatigue or exhaustion (after a long day at the office), depression, hormone imbalances, blood sugar imbalances, obesity, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure to more chronic issues such as Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, and cancer are just a few of the many problems we see on a regular basis. In addition, we work with athletes (both amateur and professional) to help them reach optimal performance and achieve their personal goals.
We utilize the latest advances in functional medicine testing to assess metabolic pathways within a person to help determine underlying causes of their symptoms. Serum blood tests, Salivary hormone testing, Neurotransmitter testing, Organic Acids testing and Heavy Metals testing are just a few of these. Improving one’s overall health and preventing disease processes in the future can be accomplished once these laboratory variations are identified and corrected. Custom nutritional programming from laboratory data provides a tremendous opportunity for your overall health and vitality by taking the “guess work” out of nutritional supplementation. We continue to seek out new tests for more specific programming as the field of functional medicine testing progresses.
To promote overall health and vitality...
Our mission at Metabolic and Nutritional Assessments is to partner with you, the client, to promote overall health and vitality, optimize aging, and to help your body heal itself from any disease conditions, presently or in your future. We strongly feel that this can be accomplished through customized, drug-free, diet and nutrition based programs while taking into account the concept of biochemical individuality and utilizing the best and latest in the field of function medicine testing.
The highest level of customized, well-researched, and effective clinical nutrition support...
At Metabolic and Nutritional Assessments, our commitment to you is that you will receive the highest level of customized, well-researched, and effective clinical nutrition support, paired with excellent customer service, in a comfortable, easy going environment that will truly support the entire process of your health and healing. Our goal is to provide the best possible care and to advance the recognition and acceptance of the field of Clinical Nutrition and effective Functional Medicine modalities.
Focus On The Cause
Addressing the underlying cause of health challenges...
We offer comprehensive, diet/supplement/lifestyle programs for men, women and children of all ages based on the concept of biochemical individuality. Our focus is on addressing the underlying cause of health challenges instead of masking or suppressing symptoms. Most people, for example, have no idea that their symptoms of aches, pains, fatigue, obesity, diabetes, depression, attention deficit disorder, fibromyalgia, or even cardiovascular issues are actually just the “tip of the iceberg”. They fail to notice or even understand what may be lying just beneath the surface of these symptoms. Our approach is to seek out and find the underlying causative factors and then begin addressing these factors from a nutritional perspective in order to support the total healing process of the individual and to ultimately help alleviate the original symptom(s) they may have presented with. By taking this approach, we are able to address the “root cause(s)” of their condition rather then masking or suppressing the symptom with potentially damaging chemicals.
Focus On Prevention
Optimizing your health and sense of well-being...
Metabolic and Nutritional Assessments specializes in prevention of disease and in optimizing your health and sense of well-being through drug-free, diet/nutrition based, custom designed programs. While we do work with many patients with chronic health issues, our real focus is on identifying your unique strengths and weaknesses and then developing a customized health and lifestyle program that supports your ability to regain and/or maintain optimal health and aging. These plans may include some or all of the following support tools: customized diet, detoxification protocols, hormone balancing, customized nutritional supplementation, and exercise and body work. To determine an individual’s needs and areas for improvement we use a variety of cutting edge laboratory tests and analyses from numerous labs and questionnaires to help us develop a protocol that is specifically designed for your unique body. This protocol naturally changes over time as the overall health and function of your body improves.
