Nutrients and other food components influence the function of the body, protect against disease, restore health, and influence general wellbeing.
Nutritional therapy is the application of nutritional science to identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how they contribute to an individuals symptoms and general health. This approach allows therapists to work with individuals to address their nutritional balance and improve their wellbeing.
Hippocrates stated over 2,000 years ago that ‘all disease begins in the gut’. We now have evidence from numerous studies to show how this may be true. Through our modern high stress, high toxin, and low nutrient lifestyles our gut health is suffering and it’s having a knock on effect to our entire bodies.
When our microbiome (the balance of beneficial bacteria) is out of sync (known as dysbiosis) this can trigger a surprising number of health conditions such as: Autoimmune diseases, skin conditions, mental health and mood disorders, CFS, type 2 diabetes, acid reflux, IBS and weight gain. The good news is that through nutritional intervention the gut can recover. There are many environmental factors that can improve your gut health such as getting the right exercise, good sleep patterns and reducing stress. However, the most important factor is the right personalised nutrition plan.
Your nutritional consultation involves an analysis of all your food intake over a week and a thorough lifestyle and health questionnaire, allowing all recommendations to be tailored to your individual needs.
