Nutrition for all

Unravel the nutrition myths

There are many health myths in the media and food industry that often lead to confusion. Do eggs lead to raised cholesterol? Will dairy give me strong bones? Do nuts make me fat? Are high protein diets a friend or fo? Should I avoid certain carbohydrates? Do supplements help?

Confused? I bet! As we are all bio chemically unique a personal dietary plan is vital. An appointment with myself will result in an individually tailored food and supplement program that enables you to stay fit and healthy.

Key areas that Nutritional therapy can help with:

  • Achieve optimum health and wellbeing
  • Promote mental and physical wellness
  • Maintain ideal weight
  • Optimise the immune system and avoid frequent colds and flu
  • Healthy digestive system
  • Hormonal wellness (including adrenal, thyroid and sex hormones)
  • Help reach your peak sports performance

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is natural medicine based on scientific research aiming to achieve optimum health. By using food and supplements one may strengthen the immune system, maintain good liver function and digestive system, support the body’s resistance to disease and assist in functions like memory, intellect, concentration, digestion, cleansing and physical peformance.

It is unrealistic to expect long-term health without good quality and fresh food – this is the raw material that provide the ingredients for health. Basically, what you eat may have a significant impact on your wellbeing.

Many of today’s health problems (physical and mental) are often not due to ‘wrong genes’ but based on underlying biochemical problems. There are several recent research papers that show that many of today’s health problems such as obesity, diabetes, cancers, allergies, reproductive problems to name a few may be caused by the environment we live in and the abundance of toxic chemicals and pollutants. It therefore seems logical to overlook all areas of health such as diet, work, where we live, modern pressures, physical activity, house-hold and beauty products. Managing these areas better may be an investement for life.

Natural medicine rather than synthetic medicine

Surely it must be ideal to prevent and manage health with natural medicine, i.e. with food and supplements. With natural, first class supplements you support the body and may experience far fewer side effects. However, there are vast differences between the quality of supplements and it can often be difficult to choose amongst the numerous brands. A good Nutritional Therapist will know about these differences and guide you in the right direction. I believe that supplements as any medicine should be treated with respect and it is advisable that you are first seen by a qualified Nutritional Therapist before you start taking them.

Nutrition for everyone

All people have something to gain from Nutritional Therapy. If your food intake is already good and you only need a general diet check, then one session may be enough. However, if you have specific goals in mind then you may need several consultations. Unlike conventional medicine Nutritional Therapy takes longer before the benefits kick in, as the body has to adopt on a cellular level.

My advice is safe and can also be used to manage health in babies, children and as well as adults. As nutrition works on a cellular level and provide vital ingredients to the body the nutrition protocol often has far fewer side effects than conventional medicine.

How effective is Nutritional therapy?

The effectiveness of nutrition is mostly up to yourself. The more committed and consistent your are the more effective it is. Nutritional Therapy is a life time commitment and there are no short cuts to success.
