How does Dr. Andy Marrone go about treating his patients?

Dr. Andy Marrone treats stress in the body. Stress can be mechanical, nutritional, or emotional. Mechanical stress is referred for Chiropractic Adjustments; Nutritional Stress will be treated by dietary modification and the use of the proper type and quality of supplements. Patients with emotional stress are referred to the proper provider for emotional stress treatment.

Why isn't my doctor experienced with Nutritional Supplements?

Medical doctors are experts in the treatment and management of disease. Most medical doctors do not have the training and expertise in nutritional matters, which is why they refer their patients to a nutritionist, dietician, or practitioner such as myself.

Are supplements considered safe and can they be used with children?

All supplements are classified under the FDA classifications as food extracts and therefore are considered to be extremely safe. The nutrients from these supplements are supposed to be obtained by eating a diet of raw food. Because we have to cook our food to kill bacteria, and because of the processing and chemical contamination of our food, many of the essential food nutrients are destroyed. The supplements that we utilize are designed to replace those essential nutrients in a supplemental form so they are safe for children too. If you have any concerns please check with your medical doctor before beginning enzyme replacement nutrition.

How long will it take me to feel better?

That depends on how long you have had the problem, your age, and if there are any other complicating factors such as disease processes. Most people start to experience positive changes within a few days to a few weeks, but everyone is different.

Will I ever be referred to another doctor?

If you are found to be in a state of disease, a referral to the proper health discipline will be made.
