Good nutrition is the foundation of good health.
The age-old tenant ‘You are what you eat’ is very true: If we do not provide ourselves the nutrients essential for optimal growth, development, and operation, we can impair our body’s normal function and cause ourselves harm. Our typical Western diet is problematic as it is often highly refined and/or processed, and therefore lacking in nutrients essential for ideal mental and physical health. In addition, many of the foods we eat also contain pesticides, additives, preservatives, and colouring agents, which further burden our systems.
Through optimal nutrition, the natural detoxification process is enhanced and essential nutrients in the body are restored, facilitating peak mental and physiological functioning. The restoration of nutritional balance creates an environment where the body is able to heal itself and further illness is prevented. Nutritional counseling includes education & awareness and may involve the addition or removal of certain foods from your diet, individualized dietary plans, and the use of nutritional supplementation.
