What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional therapy is about much more than just 'eating healthy'. It uses food as a medicine to bring the body's natural systems back into balance and promote it's natural healing capabilities. This can be a very effective way of dealing with a wide range of health issues:

Nutritional Therapy also offers many general health improvements:

  • Boost immunity

  • Improve energy

  • Reduce cravings

  • Better  digestion

  • Detoxification

  • Protect joints

  • Improve mobility

  • Overcome stress

  • Reduce mental fatigue

  • Improve sleep

  • Reduce pain

  • Calm inflammation

  • Balance hormones

  • Enhance fertility

  • Increase libido

  • Support pregnancy

  • Clear skin

  • Reduce cholesterol

  • Lift mood

  • Protect against ageing

Nutritional Therapy's 'holistic approach' incorporates the whole person, their environment and their circumstances and combines it with the science of the body's biochemistry and disease processes. The fundamental view of Nutritional Therapy is that many common diseases arise from imbalances in the biochemistry of the body's natural systems, and that, in principle, balance can be restored by careful tailoring of the natural substances in the diet.

In many cases the root cause of a health issue lies with the digestive system. One's diet may be adequate, but improper function of the digestive system can cause an imbalance in other systems and consequent health issues. Such dysfunctions include: incomplete break down of foods, inadequate absorption of nutrients, ineffective removal of waste by-products of metabolism, and hidden food sensitivities. 

In other words, Nutritional Therapy focuses not only on good nutrition but also on how the body deals with the food it is given. 

Heredity, environment and even the influence of the mind itself makes us biochemically unique, so 'rebalancing' the body's systems through diet needs an understanding of the whole person. That's why one-on-one consultation lies at the heart of the Nutritional Therapy.
