Nutrition

A nutritional consultation offers an holistic, individually-tailored approach for your specific symptoms.

It is often assumed that the modern diet is perfectly adequate. However, research* shows that many people today are suffering from lack of essential nutrients such as vital vitamins and minerals. This can lead to the general feeling of being unwell, and in the long term, may lead to serious illness.

* Holford P, The Optimum Nutrition Bible (1997)

Additionally, there may be inherited genetic requirements for extra nutrients. Stress also creates a need for extra nutrients, as does illness. If antibiotics have been prescribed, these can upset the intestinal flora and lead to overgrowth of yeast and bacteria that can cause digestive problems. A nutritional therapist will work closely with you to resolve these problems.

A definition of 'Nutrition' by Youngson, Robert M, Collins Dictionary of Medicine, (1999)
"It is the study of our dietary requirements of the body and the amounts of water, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and fibre is needed to maintain good health."
