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.
