“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” Thomas Edison
How your body performs, both physically and mentally, is directly related to what you eat.
Food is your body’s fuel and is broken down to make raw materials such as hormones, enzymes and neurotransmitters that make your body work – so we really are what we eat!
If you lack good quality fuel your body will struggle to function properly and this could cause a reduction in overall health and increase your vulnerability to infections and other health problems.
Nutritional therapy is about promoting optimum health and treating disease through a diet of organic, whole foods, as well as natural supplements. It’s about helping you feel as good as you possibly can.
The main principles of nutritional therapy are:-
– To identify and treat the cause rather than the symptoms.
– A back to basics approach – the more natural the food you eat, the
better. The natural and fresh food is likely to retain more nutrients.
– Recognising that we are complex organisms and need a wide range of
nutrients for the body to stay fit and well. In the short-term the body
may cope with any short-falls but longer-term the imbalances are likely
to be expressed as various symptoms and start causing us problems.
