Nutritional Medicine is founded on the principle that nutrients, especially essential micronutrients, are necessary for the proper functioning of all our bodies biochemical processes. Holistic #nutritionists look for the underlying causes when treating symptoms or disease, frequently caused by the interaction of both nutritional imbalances within our internal health and the impact of the external environmental that surrounds us (pesticides, fertilisers & air pollution). Our #health and #wellbeing is a reflection of our individual lifestyles, encompassing not just what we eat and drink but the ability of our bodies to process it, eliminate toxins and cope with stress both physically and mentally.
Nutrition is pivotal to obtaining optimal health and wellbeing. The therapeutic benefits aid in the prevention and management of a wide range of acute, chronic and complex health conditions, including #stress and #mood disorders, #fatigue and #sleep problems, digestive troubles, #pain and #inflammation, skin issues, allergies, #autoimmune diseases, #cardiovascular disease, #endocrine issues and reproductive concerns including hormonal imbalances.
Improving your #diet by eating a variety of #wholefoods including #seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables, organic wholegrains, quality non-processed vegetarian proteins and/or grass fed meats, free range eggs and chicken, wild caught fish and plenty of fresh water is a good start. Aiming to get a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate exercise (an activity that you enjoy), fresh air & safe sun exposure, quality sleep and relaxation each day will ensure you are on the track to longevity and a healthy, happy life.
