Nutrition

Beyond their culinary appeal, these Chicken, Zucchini & Tomato Skewers offer many nutritional benefits. Packed with lean protein from the chicken, vitamins and minerals from the zucchini and tomatoes, and heart-healthy fats from a drizzle of olive oil, this dish is a powerhouse of nutrients. Zucchini, in particular, is a nutrient-rich vegetable known for its high levels of antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C. Additionally, tomatoes provide a burst of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant associated with numerous health benefits.

Furthermore, by grilling the skewers rather than frying or sautéing, you’re able to enjoy a lighter, lower-calorie meal without sacrificing flavor. The grilling process not only enhances the natural sweetness of the vegetables but also gives a smoky flavor.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
