With Monica Watson-Peck CNM Diploma in Nutritional Therapy, The College of Naturopathic & Complementary Medicine
Is essentially the treatment or prevention of disease using diet and nutritional supplementation in preference to pharmaceutical drugs, which are foreign to healthy metabolism and can produce damaging side-effects.
Specialist training is required in anatomy, physiology, nutritional biochemistry, environmental medicine and laboratory diagnostic test procedures. Treatment protocols are based on naturopathic principles.
Nutritionists diagnose and treat conditions relating to nutritional deficiencies and biochemical imbalance, often an underlying problem in all areas of poor health.
Biochemical Tests may be recommended, ranging from stool or urinalysis, blood tests, salivary hormone panels to hair mineral analysis.
Nutritional Therapy aims to change an individual’s metabolism from an unbalanced state which causes symptoms of ill health and a higher risk for disease, to a balanced state which allows for self-healing and a return to optimal health. This approach in health care is also vital in aiding immune response in diagnosed conditions.
With today’s trend towards fast meals, high sugar foods and processed packaged foods your body will not be obtaining the nutrients it requires to function well. Compound this fact with a general lack of exercise and the daily stresses life throws at us and it is little wonder that chronic disease conditions such as obesity, hypothyroidism, diabetes, depression, heart disease…are all on the rise.
By looking at you as a whole, nutritional therapy can help you find that optimal balance of healthy body and mind.
