Nutritional Therapy is a holistic system of healing designed to treat the whole mind and body system, and has the ability to restore and maintain an optimum state of health and wellness. It is based on the understanding that food, in its purest state, is our natural medicine, and can provide us with everything we need to keep our systems functioning correctly. Food plays an important role in maintaining our energy levels, and in keeping our whole system functioning correctly. In an ideal world, we should be able to get all the essential nutrients to support good health from a natural, balanced diet. In our modern society however, we've become more and more dependent on highly processed convenience food, ready meals from the supermarket - instant fast food on the go. Even what we call 'fresh food' has often travelled hundreds of miles before it reaches us, and has lost much of its vital energy. So unless we're freshly preparing local and organically farmed produce at every meal, it's difficult to obtain all the nutrients we need for good health and vitality. Also, modern food production and preparation includes the extensive use of chemicals - pesticides, antibiotics, preservatives, artificial flavourings and colour, all of which can affect the body's natural balance. This can be further aggravated by regular intake of caffeine, alcohol, recreational or prescription drugs, which can inhibit the body's absorption of beneficial nutrients, and decrease it's ability to eliminate unwanted chemicals from the system. Over time, toxins and harmful waste products start to accumulate in the body, which can lead to a number of health conditions such as chronic fatigue, headaches, backache, depression, loss of energy, insomnia, skin problems, asthma, allergies, and many more. Using conventional medicine to treat this type of chronic condition only treats the symptoms, and doesn't attempt to address the underlying cause. A Nutritional Therapist will take into account a lot more than just your symptoms. They will ask you about your diet, lifestyle, general fitness levels, moods and emotional changes, stress factors, past medical history, and they may also carry out diagnostic tests for such things as allergies or food intolerances. The therapist will then provide you with a personalised programme of nutritional therapy, tailored to your specific needs. This will include advice about which foods you're most likely to benefit from, and which to avoid. They may also recommend vitamin or mineral supplements or natural remedies, detoxification techniques, and a possible change in lifestyle... all of which are aimed at supporting the body's natural healing ability, boosting the immune system, improving and maintaining optimum health. Nutritional Therapy can be used to treat people of all ages, including babies and children, and can alleviate a wide range of conditions, including digestive disorders, candida, IBS, weight problems, stress and anxiety, behavioural problems in children, arthritis, infertility, cravings and addictions, as well as those mentioned above. Even if you're not suffering from a specific complaint, nutritional therapy can also be of benefit if you want to maintain ongoing good health and energy levels. A nutritional therapist can help you understand the important relationship between diet and health, to enable you to make the right choices on a day to day basis.
