Good nutrition is the foundation of good health. The past decade has brought to light much new knowledge about nutrition and its effects on the body, and the role it plays in disease.
This means that not only is what we put into our bodies important, but how we digest and integrate these nutrients determines if our health is optimal or if symptoms of ill health and disease eventuate.
Your body’s nutritional needs are as unique to you as your appearance is, and the first essential step towards wellness is to be sure you are getting the correct amounts of the proper nutrients. Nutritional deficiencies, imbalances, or the presence of environmental toxins in the body can result in cellular dysfunction, illness or disease. Nutritional medicine aims to correct underlying causes as well as provide symptomatic relief.
Therefore, as part of your treatment plan, you may be asked to remove certain foods from your diet, introduce new foods, undergo a rotational or detoxification diet, or supplement with targeted vitamins, minerals and/or essential fatty acids.
