What is Natural Nutrition?
Natural Nutrition is a type of nutritional therapy which supports balanced functioning of the mind, body and emotions. Its unique approach seeks to raise awareness of how the body has arrived at its current state of health.
Natural Nutrition dietary support is tailored to the individual and helps 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.
It is my belief that the specific circumstances around each individual which have resulted in imbalanced health, requires a more specialised approach. Before making any dietary and lifestyle recommendations, it is important to consider factors like imbalances and weaknesses presenting within the body, the body’s ability to utilise nutrients and the presence of any nutritional deficiencies.
Natural Nutrition uses a specialised and tailored approach which takes into account the unique circumstances influencing health.
Disorders Linked To Nutrition
One of the downsides of modern day life is that many no longer know which foods are healing for their individual body. There are foods that promote health and foods which imbalance health but everyone has a unique body and constitution. 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 cholesterol levels
- Imbalanced blood pressure
- Hormonal imbalances: PMS, PCOS
- Fertility issues
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Depression, anxiety and insomnia.
- Autistic Spectrum Disorders, ADHD
- Eating disorders: Anorexia and bulimia
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.
