‘Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food’
What is Personalised Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is a holistic healthcare discipline in which individualised recommendations for diet, eating habits and lifestyle are advised.
Who can benefit from Nutritional Therapy?
Put quite simply, you are what you eat and digest! Our bodies and brains are entirely made from molecules derived from food, water and air. Everything we eat affects our well-being. Despite the amazing choice of food available today, most people choose their food for reasons of taste, cost, convenience and psychological gratification.
Unfortunately, the modern diet is calorie rich and nutrient poor. The increased consumption of processed junk food and sugar, a decrease of nutrients in the soil, chemical farming methods, global pollution and high stress lifestyles all contribute to nutritional deficiencies.
