|WHAT CAN A CONSULTATION WITH A HIGHLY QUALIFIED NUTRITIONAL THERAPIST DO FOR YOU?
For some, eating is a means of warding off hunger and food is fuel; for others food is a pleasurable experience and something to anticipate and plan. For those who have spent years yo-yo dieting, their relationship with food becomes a negative experience and food is viewed as the enemy. To overcome this situation and get out of the recurring, destructive cycle, you need to know the facts about food and how our bodies function. You need sound, accurate nutritional advice in order to make informed choices that will turn the tables on dieting forever.

Above all, you need to understand how important good nutrition is to maintain good mental and physical health, prevent chronic disease and also knowledge which you can pass on to your family, so that the self-perpetuating behaviour does not continue.
HOW TO FEED YOUR BODY FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE AND FITNESS
Eating the right foods and drink before and after training should be a crucial part of any fitness programme. Good nutrition can enable you to train harder in order to achieve your full potential. It will also provide the body with the essential nutrients for a fast recovery, reducing fatigue as well as ensuring your immune system is supported, and lean muscle is maintained.
All foods are fuel for the body; however some foods are more efficient at supplying energy than others. Understanding how macro-nutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) work enables you to make informed decisions about the foods you need to consume, in order to attain optimum health and peak performance in training.

Nutritional Therapy or nutritional medicine is the application of nutritional science to promote optimum health, disease prevention and complementary care of chronic illnesses. Nutritional Therapy encompasses in-depth knowledge of physiology, biochemistry and nutrients to correct imbalances which underlies poor health. A Nutritional Therapist is highly trained and qualified to manipulate an individual’s diet to address dietary and nutrient imbalances, which may manifest in commonly encountered conditions such as:
Irritable Bowel Disease
Food Intolerances & sensitivities (allergies)
Headaches & Migraines
High blood pressure
The food we eat serves as a reservoir of nutrients for every metabolic process in our body. Scientific studies have shown that poor diet is a contributing factor in the development of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, hypertension, some cancers and other degenerative diseases. Moreover processed foods, high in chemical additives as well as sugar and salt, may also contribute to behavioural and learning problems in children. Nutritional Therapy also plays an important role in disease prevention by helping to strengthen the immune system and improve digestive and metabolic function, so that the individual can enjoy optimum health and vitality.
