You are what you eat …what do you want to be?
Many people endure health problems everyday without realising that a small dietary change or supplement could make all the difference. Doctors suppress symptoms with acid-blockers, antibiotics, painkillers and so on, whereas a Nutritional Therapist aims to address the underlying cause of the problem.
Imagine what would happen if the oil gauge warning on your car dash-board was on, but instead of just topping up the oil, you covered up the light with some sticky tape and kept on driving! So when an aching joint signals that something is wrong, why just try to block the signal with painkillers? Why not listen to your body, and top up your Omega 3 oils as well?
Nutritional therapists are trained to recognise these warning signs and make dietary or lifestyle recommendations to correct imbalances and optimise health.
For those with a diagnosed condition, nutrition therapy may provide answers and effective treatments that conventional healthcare does not. Patients are often frustrated to find that while research may show exceptional results using innovative or holistic therapies, they are offered only drugs to help them tolerate their condition, rather than additional advice and treatment to actually improve their prospects.
