Our Approach to Clinical Nutrition
Have you taken a look recently at the abundance of information that is available in books and over the Internet on the subject of nutrition and your health? Adding complexity, much of the research performed on clinical nutrition is contradictory. While this self-help type of information may be helpful, it can also be problematic. Ultimately, there is no substitute for the advice of an experienced professional, because the fact is, “one size does not fit all”!
Each of us is unique and will have varying nutritional needs based on a variety of circumstances and individual health factors. Understanding these factors and combining them holistically is the difference between hit and miss nutrition and receiving the nutrient support that your body truly needs to heal itself. – Dr Ron Cherubino

Our Nutritional Approach
by Dr. Ron Cherubino
We have been working with nutrition in our center since the early 1980’s. My wife Linda, and I had the privilege of studying under Dr. M.T. Morter, Jr., one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of clinical nutrition. Nutrition remains an integral part of our holistic approach and we continue to add to our body of knowledge.
When we first began using clinical nutrition and nutritional analysis, our approach, which utilized acid / alkaline balancing, was considered radical. I remember how unpopular a concept it was that nutrition and disease were related at all. I know that may be hard to imagine as we view it from a 21st-century perspective, however I assure you the resistance was overwhelming. Unfortunately, there still exists today a widespread ignorance and resistance when it comes to nutrition and health.
Today, we have begun to move significantly in a more natural direction in the field of clinical nutrition. We now hear how processed sugar is indeed toxic. We are warned to eat our vegetables because they are linked to the prevention of cancer. In actuality, these and many other simple but profound facts have been known to naturalists worldwide for hundreds of years. Jethro Kloss, an early 20th century naturalist, healer and author of the book Back to Eden, documented the use of herbs and other foods in the successful treatment of dozens of diseases, including cancer.
It has been very difficult, especially in this country, to get this knowledge into the hands of the population in general, and even more difficult to reach the people who are sick and hurting and in critical need of this information. The problem has, in part, been resistance to the dissemination of these facts by profit driven food manufacturers and lobbyists, government agencies, such as the FDA, and the pharmaceutically-oriented western medical establishment.
Hopefully, in the years to come, knowledge will grow, attitudes will change and we will again be able to look back comically at some of the currently held positions on clinical nutrition. In the meantime, we at Cherubino Health Center, will continue to pioneer the use of clinical nutrition and nutritional testing to combat disease and improve health.
Is there a relationship between your health and your nutritional intake?
Yes, most certainly!
With the application of functional medicine principles – imbalances are identified, your individual health status is established, and there is a wealth of nutritional knowledge that we can help you apply to the benefit of your health. During a clinical nutrition evaluation we use live foods, detoxification, enzyme therapy, vitamin and mineral supplementation, nutraceuticals, herbs and homeopathics to help your body heal.
