- Could you eat better?
- Are you on the correct eating plan for what your body needs?
What we eat and drink has a direct impact on our health and sense of wellbeing.
What we consume affects not only our physical body – it also has a profound effect on our thoughts, mental health and emotional health, all of which then have a direct effect on our physical health.
Marketing and advertising can make it difficult to make good food choices. Fads and current trends can sway us in one direction or the other. While we may know the basics of what constitutes a good or bad diet it can still be confusing in ensuring we eat what is right for us or know where to start when changes are needed.
Many of us eat a poor quality diet and manage for many years but underneath in our cells, tissues and organs, changes can be starting to take place that are laying down the foundation for chronic disease such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune disease and thyroid conditions.
Teaching you how to make good food choices which are right for your body, how to read labels and how to look past the spin and fancy packaging is all part of the consultation and treatment plan.
A clinical nutritionist can create an individualised eating plan just for you to support your body back to full health. And, the good news is that you may not need to make many changes straight away. Often, making just one change at a time can have a great and lasting effect.
Vitamin and mineral nutritional supplements are often prescribed as part of the treatment program. Our bodies “chomp” through their nutrients at a faster rate when we are stressed, unwell or experiencing a chronic condition. When you combine that with a poor diet, it is easy for our body to suffer from a nutritional loss. Supplements can be effectively used to support your body replenish what is has lost and support the correction of the underlying imbalances. And, you will usually only be taking them while they are needed.
We are lucky to have two highly skilled naturopaths at the clinic. Both bring experience and a gentle but effective approach to the treatment plans.
