Holistic medicine respects the unique characteristics of every individual and thus everyone is approached differently. Naturopathic nutrition and diet therapy consists of choosing high quality food, individualizing a dietary plan for each person, and when needed adding vitamin and/or mineral supplementation to aid in repair of tissues.

There is no one diet that is suitable for all people. However, there are basic principles that can be followed that will help all people. A clean source of food will be helpful for all people, and this includes foods free from pesticides, antibiotics, and growth hormones. These foods are readily available as organically grown foods. In addition, foods that are eaten as close to their natural form are often more nutritious. For example, brown rice with the whole fiber is more nutritious and healthier for the digestive function, as opposed to white rice which often has B vitamins added to make up for the deficiencies caused by refining and milling.

Individualizing a diet requires knowing the basic metabolic nature of the person. This is dependent on several factors such as one’s stage of life (such as infancy, adolescence, pregnancy, menopause, etc),
level of physical activity, and one’s genetic predispositions. Guidelines for a regular dietary plan can be determined by one’s metabolic tendency, however it will be up to experimentation to fine tune the diet according to individual needs. This requires trial and error on the part of the person, with guidance from the doctor. As the person becomes more aware of his/her body and develops a higher degree of sensitivity, it becomes very simple to determine if certain foods are beneficial or harmful at any given time.

Dr. SuHu is first and foremost a family care doctor. He has repeatedly seen how individuals and families can truly help themselves with minimal medical intervention and mostly through health education and positive encouragement. Change takes time and watching how an individual and family blossom together over time brings Dr. SuHu the greatest joy.

Dr. SuHu honors the presence of a client and approaches the therapeutic relationship with the highest sanctity. He avoids all moral judgements and views every individual as an equal human being. Everyone has a talent and calling in life, and there is not one better than the other. He sees himself as a friend, with a particular talent and calling. Thus, he likes to think of himself as a therapeutic friend.

Dr. SuHu is known for his empathetic presence and honesty. Through his own experience with healing physical and emotional pains and the wisdom imparted to him through his clients, he has been able to show people how to successfully embrace their own journeys and overcome pain and suffering.

Dr.SuHu has been broadly educated with formal degrees with Bachelors in Chemistry from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Masters in Nutrition from New York University, Diplomate in Acupuncture from Tri-State College of Acupuncture, and Doctor of Naturopathy from the University of Bridgeport, College of Naturopathic Medicine.
