“You are what you eat, or, more importantly, you are what your body is able to absorb”
Today’s busy and stressful lifestyle along with environmental toxicity, contributes to the increasingly heavy demands on our bodies. Additionally, intensive farming, food refining and processing have all resulted in a significant loss of nutrients in food.
Good nutrition will promote optimum health and prevent disease by allowing the body to function at peak performance. A good diet can drastically improve energy levels, mood, behaviour, and the ability to cope with stress. Conversely, a poor diet could convert today’s minor ailment into tomorrow’s chronic debilitating illness.
Nutritional therapy aims to use food as the primary source of medicine. As Hippocrates said:
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”
Everyone has different biochemical requirements, depending on age, gender, past and present dietary patterns, height, weight, lifestyle and activity levels. A dietary and supplement regime is therefore designed to meet your personal nutritional needs and lifestyle.
