In an age when the allure of highly processed foods can be irresistible, we all need to understand just how damaging these foods can be to our individual biochemistry – and even the “healthiest” of diets can be low in some key nutrients.
Without the right nutrients in the proper balance for our unique personal needs, we simply fail to function optimally. Over time this deficit becomes apparent through symptoms such as
> Energy slumps
> Sugar cravings
> Digestive symptoms
> Joint pains
> Skin complaints
> Constant infections
> Low mood
> Poor sleep and more
If allowed to become critical, nutritional deficiency can play a major role in common chronic disease such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, mental health problems, auto-immune conditions, cancers and infertility.
Nutritional Therapy applies nutrition science in the promotion of health, utilising dietary intervention where appropriate and the sensible use of dietary supplements. It supports recovery from ill health and alleviates a wide range of conditions. Nutritional Therapists work alongside numerous other healthcare practitioners and G.P.s, always referring a client to a medical practitioner where necessary.
Applying Nutritional Therapy is a process that takes a long as it needs to, depending on individual circumstances, constraints on time, personal likes and dislikes, genetics, age. It is rarely a quick fix but the benefits are lifelong and unquestionably worth it.
