We live in a world that is very different to the one in which we evolved. Conditions such as obesity, diabetes and digestive issues have had a dramatic impact on our health and are on the rise. In the workplace, stress and anxiety are leading causes of absenteeism. The connection between these disorders and an unbalanced diet and lifestyle is becoming increasingly evident.
Nutritional therapy is a holistic approach to healthcare that examines the interplay between the individual, environment and their genes. Nutritional therapy pays particular attention to the following:
Central pillars of optimal health
- A nutrient dense diet
- A healthy gut
- An environment that's low in toxins
- Hormones that are in balance
- A strong immune system
- Favourable gene expression
These central pillars are strongly influenced by our internal and external environment. If one of these pillars is weakened it can create a cascade of future health problems.
Conventional medicine is fantastic for acute injuries or disease. However, chronic health issues can often be attributed to a failure in one of the central pillars of health. In Nutritional Therapy discovering the cause of the symptoms is the primary focus.
Nutritional therapy is not only concerned with ensuring you eat a diet high in plant foods, high-quality protein and healthy fats but it is also about making sure your diet fits into your lifestyle. Eating in a way that is right for you and your body is the first stage in maintaining and regaining health. Nutritional therapy lays out a guided roadmap to health that focuses on strengthening and supporting each of the central pillars of health.
Nutritional Therapy aims to:
- Optimize your health through dietary and lifestyle interventions
- Uncover underlying causes of ill-health
- Provide specific recommendations to optimise the function of areas of concern such as the digestive system, boost energy levels or to balance hormones
- Return the body back to balance
Nutritional therapy is focused on regaining health to allow the body to do what it needs to in order to get you back to your best.
