Nutritional Therapy: Functional Medicine
In an ideal world, we would get all the nutrients we need from a balanced diet. However the reality of 21st Century living is far removed from this ideal.
The stresses of modern living can encourage the consumption of foods which could jeopardise our health. In our fast-paced environment, it is easy to neglect our bodies through poor dietary choices. These habits often include the consumption of nutrient-depleted and highly processed foods. In time, this sort of diet could lead to many chronic health problems.
In recent times we have witnessed a steady increase in disease and sickness. Chronic illnesses have now reached almost epidemic proportions with 1 in 3 of the population currently predicted to develop cancer. Yet ill health can only exist in a body that is out of balance.
Diet is a fundamental factor in health and dietary change can be the catalyst to help restore balance and improve health. From simple food-based alterations, to a complete dietary overhaul, the application of a Functional Medicine approach to Nutritional Therapy could provide a life-changing solution to your current health problems.
Nutrition also provides a holistic approach to healing, often reducing the need for drugs or other potentially harmful therapies. Both inexpensive and risk-free good nutrition can facilitate an achievable route to improved health and vitality. Even in the absence of a specific health complaint improved nutrition can enhance the quality of your health, helping you to feel happier in yourself.
