What is Natural Nutrition?
"Natural Nutrition is a type of nutritional therapy which aims to create freedom and movement within the mind, body and emotions"
Natural nutrition aims to reconnect the individual to nurturing foods which promote health and well being. Its specialised approach seeks to raise awareness of how the body has arrived at its current state of health whilst dietary support tailored to the individual aims to move them towards an improved sense of well being.
At this point in time, many are seeking a more natural approach with their health issues and wish to avoid possible side affects from the prolonged use of medications. The initial advice given by most health professionals for treating certain health conditions is to use dietary and lifestyle changes for a suggested length of time before using medical treatments of drugs and surgery. Unfortunately many are unable to fully address health issues by following standardised dietary advice and will eventually use drugs to control these imbalances.

Disorders Linked To Nutrition
One of the downsides of modern day life is that many individuals no longer know which foods promote health within themselves. As each individual has a unique body there will be foods that promote health within them whereas other foods although considered beneficial may imbalance their health. For example, an individual with a cold body constitution would require more foods which are energetically warm and their health could become imbalanced for example by consuming cold drinks, raw fruits and vegetables during the colder seasons.
Good nutrition lays the foundation for a healthy body and mind whereas imbalanced nutrition interferes with normal body functioning and eventually becomes a contributory factor to a disease or disorder.
"Nutrition is an important factor to consider when approaching any health issue"
Examples of nutritionally linked imbalances include:
- Poor energy levels: chronic fatigue
- Weight issues: obesity
- Digestive complaints: IBS, constipation
- Allergies and intolerances
- Skin problems: acne, eczema
- Joint Problems
- Headaches: migraine

- Imbalanced blood pressure
- Hormonal imbalances: PMS, PCOS
- Fertility issues
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Depression, anxiety and insomnia.
- Autistic Spectrum Disorders, ADHD

My aim is to treat the whole person and not specific health conditions which are all just labels for varying levels of imbalance within the body.
