There’s no doubt that diet, in so many ways, determines our health. Most of us consume approximately three meals a day, every day. Food is the ultimate source of fuel for every cell, tissue, organ, and system in our body. Without food, there would be no hormones, no neurotransmitters, no enzymes, no life, no us.
Our dietary choices play a key role in both preventing and healing disease. We often fail to realize that, while our bodies are a trillion times more complex than the most high-tech space shuttle, we require the best quality food available to support our individual biochemistry.
Nutritional Therapy is a science-based, holistic approach to nutritional counselling focusing on the fact that food, as nature intended, is a form of medicine that has the power to heal, protect, nurture, and support good health. Our bodies are incredibly skilled at restoring balance when given the proper raw materials that work with our individual biochemistry
Nutritional Therapy is deeply rooted in the idea of bio-individuality: we’re all different, thus implying that our bodies have different requirements based on our background, health, age and genetic SNPs and variations, etc.
While some of us might thrive on a plant-based diet or a ketogenic diet, others may find those diets disagree with them. Just as with most things in life, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution here. What our bodies need to heal and flourish is truly a bio-individual affair.
As nutritional therapists, we do a full overview of your situation, taking all aspects into account. While we take a look at your health history and current symptoms, just like any health professional would, we also consider the bigger picture. In this regard, we utilize various functional diagnostics such as hair tissue mineral analysis, stool testing, genetic testing, comprehensive hormone testing, organic acids testing and many other laboratory and functional forms of assessment. We also assess your lifestyle and dietary habits. Ultimately, we work with you and your bio-individual needs, thereby enabling you to embark on a journey towards healing and optimal health.
