Condition Based Nutrition

What

Condition based nutritional medicine is the use of nutritional interventions to modify a disease or disorder process. An easy example of nutritional medicine is using vitamin D3 at 4000-5000 iu/day to correct vitamin D deficiency or treat seasonal affective disorder. Another might be using nicotinic acid (a form of Niacin) in therapeutic dosage to lower LDL cholesterol.

Why

About three to four decades ago, the United States invested much of its health care dollar into researching and producing drug-based interventions for treatment of health issues. The boost was the development of vaccines and then antibiotics which were seen as the cure all. Unfortunately, we are in the rebound phase of over investment and confidence in the thought that this approach was going to be the silver bullet. In the meantime, pharmaceutical companies are scrounging around old drugs for new revenue while just slightly modifying them in order to give them new profits. We need to shift towards helping our bodies heal themselves rather than the idea of controlling them by making certain organ systems produce outcomes we want (IE: antidepressants suppress or facilitate for the brain instead of the brain learning to do it by itself).

Who

Dr. Nick Rapp works with people who have chronic conditions like ulcerative colitis, or osteoporosis. He has many hours of continuing education in nutrition and disease management. Dr. Rapp works with people who are looking to take a proactive approach to their health and are wondering about maintaining a healthy lifestyle or have a specific condition and are tired of the same answers from doctors who get their treatment options from a single source, pharmaceutical or medical device corporations.

Testimonials

  • "This is an amazing clinic! Dr. Curt helped me with my low back and hip pain brought on by pregnancy, and made me feel completely comfortable the minute I met him. Very nice, knowledgeable, and truly interested in any issues I have going on. Best of all, there was NEVER any pressure to set up future appointments or sales pressure from anyone there. This is the only clinic I will ever go to from now on!
    Amazing doctors!"
    - Jolene / Rosemount, MN
  • "AMAZING DOCTORS! I had terrible pain in my knee for weeks. It hurt to go up and down the stairs, it hurt and ached driving to work and even just sitting. I was in constant pain. I went in to see Dr. Nick and he knew exactly what I needed and put me back in place. Dr. Nick does a wonderful and thorough job.
    Loved going to these guys"
    - DRT, Rosemount, MN
  • "I have loved going to these guys for years but failed to consult them on a big problem from last summer. I went to my physician who had me go through many tests and had no answers or relief! At my last appointment I mentioned it to Dr. Nick who asked me why I hadn't come in earlier. Good question! After one appointment I felt great relief, not to mention finally getting an answer!

    My problem: Pain in the muscle under my left breast. It was constantly bothering me. I made changes in my clothing, had a mammogram, an ultra sound and numerous consultations. Never once did they recommend a chiropractor. Dr. Nick traced the rib to my back and located the problem area in one appointment!

    Recommendation-Don't wait to get a second opinion! These guys are amazing and I highly recommend them!
    Great people and great doctors"
    - Brenda H., Rosemount, MN
  • "Great people and great doctors, I have seen Dr. Nicholas for two different problems, this last one was giving me so much pain! He is great after one visit there has been alot of improvement with my arm and alot less pain. He and his dad have taken great care in finding the correct way to take care of me. If you have never been to a chiropractor or have had a bad experience please give them a try you will never go anywhere else!

    WORTH YOUR TIME, MONEY AND THE RELIEF YOU CAME FOR!"
