About Nutritional Therapy
So, what is Nutritional Therapy and how does it work?
Food is so much more than just fuel! It is information that can influence and control our bodies’ key metabolic processes and genetic expression.
Nutritional Therapy is based on the scientific principle that food, as nature intended it, provides the nutrients needed to heal the body and to help bring us back to a state of optimum health and vitality. This is achieved through maintaining a balance in energy to sustain the function, structure and development of our bodies.
Although many health complaints require particular medication, it has been repeatedly shown that nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare supports the health of all the major systems of the body. These include, but are not limited to, the following systems: digestive, endocrine, reproductive, excretory, skeletal, immune, muscular, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular and integumentary (your skin, hair and nails).
Nutritional Therapy isn’t a magic one-pill-fits-all solution. It can take time for the body to respond and to come back into balance. It is about resolving the underlying factors involved and so it is a more comprehensive therapy than one that only treats symptoms. It will vary according to the individual, but some people do see significant improvements straight away, whereas others may need more time for their bodies to respond, which is why I tailor my packages around you.
