Integrative nutrition aims to “preserve health and treat diseases by administering the optimal amount of molecules that are necessary for the organism and that are normally found in it” (in the words of Linus Paulin, Nobel Prize in Chemistry and Peace Prize, in 1957 and 1962, respectively).
Nutrition or integrative medicine uses substances that exist naturally in the human body and are necessary for life, with the purpose of restoring the nutritional balance of the individual. These substances are usually administered orally, but they can also be administered intravenously.
Thus, nutrition or integrative medicine is the part of medicine dedicated to cellular rehabilitation or, in other words, to the restoration of the chemical balance of the organism. By giving the right molecule at the right time, we regulate the biochemical alterations that appear in the organism, allowing not only to treat but also to prevent the appearance of diseases.
This objective is achieved through the use of natural substances and elements, such as vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids, prebiotics, coenzymes, which will allow a biochemical rebalancing, neutralizing toxic effects and improving the quality of life.
At Clínica Rigo we adapt nutrition or integrative medicine to each patient, always accompanied by a personalized nutritional program. In our protocol, we choose to provide nutrients with the highest bioavailability possible, accepting that each person has a metabolic balance and integrative nutrition has the mission that each individual reaches their best form of health from their biochemical individuality.
