"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates
Nutritional therapy is a system of healing based on the belief that food, as nature intended, provides the nutrients we need to obtain and maintain a state of health.
Nutritional therapy can help you achieve optimum health, increased energy, mental clarity, a positive mood, a healthy weight, clear skin and greater resistance to disease.
Due to modern lifestyles and food choices, our diets often lack good quality nutrients sufficient for the body's needs.
The environments we live in and the lifestyles we lead also affect our bodies, placing stresses and strains on us both physically and mentally, and these too have an impact on the nutrition that our bodies need in order to cope.
Nutritional therapy is about finding out what a person’s nutritional needs are, either to achieve peak performance or to heal an illness caused, partially or wholly, by nutritional imbalance and then to devise a set of adjustments to diet and lifestyle in order to achieve better health.
By stimulating the body’s own healing capabilities Nutritional therapy aims to address the underlying causes of poor health, not just symptoms. Often just small changes to diet and lifestyle can bring improvements.
