How Can Holistic Treatments Help with Metabolic Disorders?


Metabolic disorders are all too common in the United States. These conditions affect how your body takes in and uses nutrients, causing it to have too much or too few of the substances the body needs to stay healthy and function properly.

Since metabolic disorders are very complex and cause myriads of symptoms that can affect your quality of life, such as vomiting, lethargy, poor appetite, abdominal pain, and weight loss, they require a comprehensive and multi-faced approach, like a holistic medicine approach.

Let’s talk about how holistic treatment helps with metabolic disorders and where you can go for outstanding treatment of your metabolic disorder in Weatherford, TX.

Holistic Treatments

As an excellent adjunctive treatment for metabolic disorders, holistic treatments integrate the best practices of Western medicine and traditional medicine while taking a whole-person approach to improving the overall health of the clients.

Holistic treatments take into account the individual needs of the clients and consider different aspects of their health: physical, social, emotional, and spiritual health, to provide a life-changing solution to metabolic disorders.

To develop a holistic treatment plan, first,a comprehensive assessment is carried out. During the assessment, various client factors such as family history, health history, current health status, diet, and lifestyle are evaluated to see how these may have an effect on their metabolic processes. Functional medicine testing may also be done to find out where metabolic functions may have gone awry.

Initial assessment and functional metabolic testing also provide insights into the origin of the metabolic disorder, which helps devise a tailored holistic treatment plan.

The most suitable holistic treatment plan for the metabolic disorder may use any (or combination) of the following approaches.

Nutritional Counseling and Lifestyle Approaches

A healthy and balanced diet that provides your body with all the required nutrients can help mitigate the symptoms of metabolic disorders (such as inherited metabolic disorders that result from a missing or defective enzyme in the body)and prevent the complications of the disorders.

In addition to dietary adjustments, holistic treatment may also include lifestyle changes, such as doing exercises or physical activity and taming stress with meditation and other approaches.


Nutraceuticals are medical-grade supplements that can also help manage metabolic disorders,such as diabetes. Advanced studies have supported the idea that since diabetic clients are deficient in chromium, taking chromium supplements may improve their glucose intolerance and increase insulin sensitivity.

Metabolic Detoxification Program

Metabolic detoxification is a pathway through which unnecessary foreign chemicals (that comes from processed foods, chemical products, and car exhaust and fumes) and unnecessary chemicals produced by the body are excreted from the body.

Metabolic disorders, such as Gaucher disease (an inherited metabolic disorder in which fatty substances build up in the liver, spleen, and bone marrow), may respond well to metabolic detox programs.
