Dr. Michael Forman, DOM, is a clinical nutritionist who restores organ functions with food-based medicines.
He performs a rare type of medical service, one you may never have heard of, Applied Clinical Nutrition (specifically, Nutrition Response Testing) a form of integrative medicine that combines scientific and physiological findings with a holistic viewpoint toward health management.
He says “the clinically proven system is different from other healing practices in that it integrates diet, lifestyle and supplementation and is able to tap into what your body tells us it needs.”
Not to be confused with what a nutritionist does, Dr. Forman does not prescribe diets, only food-based medicines that solely help conditions. His patients range from age 2 to 75.
“I don’t look at organs like car parts, I look at them in a synergistic way,” Dr. Forman said. And in regards to his alternative to pharmaceuticals, he said, “I do not suppress symptoms of an organ — that continues the problem. I look at the body’s condition in a holistic and synergistic way.”
The most common conditions Dr. Forman sees are high blood sugar, chronic asthma and hyper or hypo thyroid issues. And among all his patients, the majority were never given a proper diagnosis from their doctor or they developed side effects from pharmaceutical drugs. Dr. Forman attempts to cure medical issues, not mask them.
Dr Forman says, “eating a better diet is not enough to correct the problem. Because of soil erosion, pesticides and genetic modifications irreversible applied to crops, even the best food does not provide the nutrients required to restore the long term degeneration causing symptoms and disease.”
He added, “Our approach to correcting the underlying causes to correct health problems is to identify the specific organ dysfunctions and nutritional deficiencies that lie at the cause of the symptoms and handling those deficiencies with the appropriate supplementation to fix it.
These supplements are specific concentrated whole food medicines available only through a physician. They are made to address specific clinical nutritional deficiencies.”
Todd Goodwin, a former patient of Dr. Forman, said, “I came to Dr. Forman with several seemingly unrelated symptoms that, while certainly not very serious, were annoying and getting worse, and apparently shared a common cause. Dr. Forman’s use of precisely dosed whole food nutritional supplements as a complementary treatment to acupuncture has helped to resolve these issues at the cause, so now the symptoms and root problems are eliminated.”
Dr. Forman is located at 195 Giralda Ave., Coral Gables, FL 33134; telephone 305-741-2102.
