The Power of Food
Nutritional therapy focuses on the biochemical processes which contribute to the healthy functioning of our body. It takes into account not only how food effects these processes, but also the strong influences of our environment and emotional health. It's important to know how a healthy body works in order to understand what happens when these processes don't work as efficiently.
The aim of nutritional therapy is to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances, through looking at diet and lifestyle, in order to understand how they may be contributing to your symptoms and health concerns. I use food and nutritional supplements and to help restore balance between your body systems with the aim of supporting overall health and joie de vivre! I also usually recommend essential oils as part of your support plan, as I've found them to be a powerful tool in supporting both physical and emotional well being.
Although change isn't always easy and doesn't happen overnight, it doesn't have to feel like deprivation. There are specific conditions and symptoms that can need more radical changes, but in general I try and avoid this as I feel extreme and rigid diets are counterproductive for most people.
What I do notice is that the more you learn about how your diet effects your health, making lasting changes will feel like a natural result of your increased understanding. These days it's very easy to access healthy and delicious meals and snacks, whether you like to cook from scratch or buy your meals. So you don't need to worry that you'll be on a permanent diet of mung bean salad!
