Naturopathic Nutrition

Naturopathic Nutrition is a holistic, individual-centred approach to restoring health, emphasising the use of whole foods as medicine, as Hippocrates said ‘Let food be thy medicine, and medicine by thy food’. It also recognises the important and necessary part that both emotional and mental factors play in the balance of good health.

Firmly based in scientific evidence, Naturopathic Nutrition looks to rectify the underlying cause of illness rather than simply treating symptoms, working on the principle that illness occurs when the natural equilibrium of the body becomes out of balance. It can be used to treat a particular condition or when you just want to feel better and improve your general sense of well-being and vitality

With so much (often conflicting) information available from numerous sources on what constitutes a healthy diet, it can be confusing to know what choices to make. A return to chemical free foods, along with other dietary measures, is an effective answer to many health complaints and common conditions.

An initial consultation covers detailed questions about your symptoms, general health, lifestyle and medical history and includes specific tailor made recommendations based on this information.

The aim is to create a plan that is appropriate to your needs, budget and achievable within your lifestyle, helping you make the most of life by maximising your health potential.

The World Health Organisation, which is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters and shaping the health research agenda, says that:

 “Good nutrition – an adequate, well balanced diet combined with regular physical activity – is a cornerstone of good health. Poor nutrition can lead to reduced immunity, increased susceptibility to disease, impaired physical and mental development, and reduced productivity.”
