What is Nutritional Therapy? Header image for What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy uses foods and nutrients in an holistic way
to assist the body’s natural healing process. Your body is your best doctor.

Self healing, Self regulatory and Self renewing.

The foods that we eat are the body’s raw materials to use for building, repair,
protection, energy and growth in the case of children
and pregnant women.

The choice and quality of those foods will determine what
nutrients are in your tissues.

Optimum nutrition enables optimum cell function.
This affects all organs and systems, so the body is in good working order
and able to cope with everyday stresses and strains.

Nutritional Therapy can target weaknesses or conditions that
have developed due to nutritional deficiencies.

The day to day way we eat defines our health and vitality.
The food we eat for breakfast dictates our energy for most of the day.
The foods we snack on decide whether we feel tired or alert by the afternoon.
The amount of fresh fruit and vegetables we eat may affect our immunity.
The type of fats and proteins that we eat can encourage disease later in life.

The right nourishment for your body is very important. Doctors are vital,
but you as an individual are the ones that have the true power over your health.

Nutritional Therapy is not just about day to day health, but also about preserving
your skin, your mental alertness and your bone, muscle and joint strength.
This is not just for older people – many conditions can be improved or supported
in old age by nutrition, but it is much better help to prevent many age related problems
by protecting yourself when you are younger through a healthy diet.

There are many problems that besiege young people because of unhealthy diet and
lifestyle too. Fatigue, digestive upsets, poor skin appearance, rashes, weak hair and nails, hormone problems, weight gain, allergies and lowered immunity being some.

Nutritional Therapy is not just about telling you what foods are good to eat,
it looks at the individuality of the person – what foods are okay for some may
not be right for others.

The foods that you do or don’t put into your body play a
huge part in your health and well-being.
