How nutrition helps

Restore health

The restorative and therapeutic benefits of fresh, nutritious food have been proven in countless studies and lives, with many cultures customarily using food as medicine. However, our need for convenience and the power of the food and pharmaceutical industries means that this gets forgotten. Instead, we either choose over-the-counter remedies that mask our symptoms, or we put up with poor health in order to continue eating badly or to maintain a demanding job/lifestyle. By working on nutritional status, assessing and counteracting the root causes of your symptoms, The Nutrition Guide aims to help resolve health problems and restore wellness.

Prevent disease

It has been projected that, by 2020, chronic diseases will account for almost three-quarters of all deaths worldwide (WHO, 2003).

Chronic illnesses such as heart disease, type two diabetes, obesity, arthritis, osteoporosis and Alzheimer's develop slowly over time, and symptoms often don't appear until we are older. They can result from the cumulative effect of many factors and triggers such as family history, pollution, negative emotions, drugs, alcohol and poor diet. Along with increasing physical activity, improved nutrient intake has been shown to play a vital role in preventing, delaying and reducing the risk of chronic disease.

"Even if you have a family history of a particular illness, you can still give yourself the best chance of living healthily for longer by making the right food and lifestyle choices."

Conventional medicine

Nutritional therapy can work alongside conventional medicine. Whether you are suffering a serious illness, recovering from surgery, undergoing cancer treatment or taking drugs for specific problems, nutritional measures can offer great benefits. Feeding the body with tailored nutritional support can naturally boost immunity, healing ability and even counteract some of the side effects of taking medications. The Nutrition Guide is able to contact your GP or other healthcare provider to keep them up-to-date with your programme and ensure that all parties are happy with the progress being made.

Those suffering 'minor' symptoms such as fatigue, skin conditions, indigestion, occasional constipation or PMS often feel that a visit to the GP is not warranted. It is at these times that we turn to over-the-counter medications, which offer temporary relief, but tend to come with a long list of side effects. The Nutrition Guide aims to determine and address the factors causing your symptoms rather than masking them in the short term.

"Tablets may kill headache pain, but instead, why not try reducing toxins, balancing blood sugar and ensuring the body is fully hydrated? This may prevent the headache ever returning and without any impact on the stomach and liver."

Boost performance

Striving to be that bit better at what you do is a natural instinct. We regularly work with clients to achieve goals such as smashing through personal best triathlon times, staying alert throughout long meetings, and keeping cheerful when the kids are being difficult. By nourishing the body and mind optimally, The Nutrition Guide could help you unlock the potential to perform at your best.
