Functional Medicine & Nutrition in Solana Beach
Functional Medicine & Nutrition in Solana Beach, CA: Unlike traditional medically-based nutritional counseling, the dietary counseling provided by Dr. Dawn Liu and Dr. Jim Chialtas at Action Performance Care utilizes advanced metabolic testing to personalize a dietary lifestyle plan for recovery of chronic conditions and peak energy production of the body.
Functional medicine treatments focus on nutrition, lifestyle, stress management, herbals and neutraceuticals/supplements. We look to uncover factors that may be contributing to your health through a detailed look into your history and lifestyle. In addition to standard tests, we utilize evidence-based lab testing not done by conventional practitioners to open the doors for a wider array of personalized treatment and recommendations. These can include detailed stool analysis, food allergy and sensitivity, heavy metal toxicity, functional nutritional assessments, adrenal evaluation, inflammatory and autoimmune panels, advanced cholesterol subparticle profiles, sex hormone metabolism, expanded thyroid profiles, genetic markers and neurotransmitter levels.
The results of these different types of analysis help Jim Chialtas create a custom nutritional and supplementation program designed to meet the needs and goals of each individual patient.

I have been consistently working with Jim Chialtas for my wellness over the past 5 years. I've known him an an acupuncturist for a long time but I sought out to explore his specialty, Functional Medicine. I generally only use Holistic and natural medicine for my health care so when my Naturopath diagnosed me with 9 uterine fibroids, but then went on to tell me that my blood hormone panel was ``normal`` it seemed inaccurate to me. I went to see Jim and when he looked over my hormone panel, and compared my blood tests to ``functional levels`` is was far from ``normal``. Over a years time as we worked together my fibroids shrunk and I could no longer feel them! Since then I've used Jim's work for Adrenal repair and function, periomenopausal issues, and food sensitivity testing and guidance. There is nothing quite like functional medicine for restoring health and Jim's approach is centered, practical, easy and well supported!
