Nutritional Therapy

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutrition is the relationship of food to the health of the human body. Nutritional therapy looks at the individual's diet and lifestyle in order to identify and correct biochemical imbalances that may lead to body dysfunction. It works to locate the root of the problem and help the body heal itself. Nutritional Therapy will make sure you are eating the right foods and correct supplements for your body. Without access to abundant, good quality nutrients, our bodies cannot function properly.

Do you feel you are just getting through each day rather than living life to the full? Do you suffer from any of the following?

More than two thousand years ago, Hippocrates advocated: "Let food be your medicine and let medicine be your food." Nutritional therapy helps you to use the healing powers of food as preventative medicine.

The old saying, "You are what you eat" holds much merit. The typical modern Western diet leads to a condition of being overfed yet undernourished. Modern diets rely heavily on processed convenience foods, hurried snacks, and overcooked meals, which can lack sufficient vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and fibre essential for fitness and good health.

Further, the stresses of modern life, lack of exercise, and over-indulgence in stimulants (such as alcohol, nicotine, caffeine) can all contribute to impaired health.

What are the Benefits of Nutritional Therapy?

There is a direct link between physical health and mental health. As your dietary intake and overall health-promoting habits improve, you will inevitably feel better not only physically but mentally as well.

As you begin to feel better, you will have natural intrinsic motivation to maintain your new healthy lifestyle. You will be pleasantly surprised at how quickly this happens. Studies show that long-term habits can be broken in just three weeks of consistent re-training.

You can have better body functioning, abundant energy, a healthy immune system, and a glowing complexion, leading to an overall feeling of well being.

Don't wait for health problems to occur, take control and use the healing powers of food as preventive medicine. By doing so, you could help to prevent health problems before they occur.
