Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy
Naturopathic medicine believes in promoting the body’s own self healing mechanisms, putting a strong emphasis on prevention as much as on treatment.
Naturopathic practitioners use tools including diet, food supplementation and lifestyle changes such as exercise to stimulate these healing processes.
Naturopathic nutrition aims always to get to the fundamental root of what is causing your problems and not to simply work with the symptoms – correcting any imbalances and nutritional deficiencies and so enabling your body’s own capacity to heal and build you back to vital health.
Naturopathic nutrition also works on the premise that we are all totally unique. We have different gut flora, we all metabolise, absorb and utilise our food differently. So we all need to approach our diet with that in mind.
As much as 70% of our immune system is located in the intestinal tract. It stands to reason therefore that a healthy gut is integral to robust health. It also highlights the necessity for a well balanced nutritious diet to support overall health and vitality.
