What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional deficiencies, excesses and imbalances in diet can produce negative impacts on health, which may lead to diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity or osteoporosis, as well as psychological and behavioral problems. Many common diseases and their symptoms can often be prevented or alleviated with better nutrition.

Our nutritional therapists will assess your nutritional status and recognising that each personís needs are unique, depending on a number of factors, from inherited strengths and weaknesses to the influence of diet, lifestyle and environment, they will work with you and provide advice on dietary plans, disease prevention and control.

 

Key Principles of Nutritional Therapy:

  • There are six main classes of nutrients that the body needs: carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water. It is important to consume these six nutrients on a daily basis to build and maintain a healthy function for your body.

  • First, food or drink is consumed. Second, the body breaks down the food or drink into nutrients. Third, the nutrients travel through the bloodstream to different parts of the body where they are used as "fuel" and for many other purposes. To give the body proper nutrition, a person has to eat and drink enough of the foods that contain key nutrients.
