How can a Nutritionist help me?Today’s highly driven and fast-changing climate leaves many of us subject to the physiological effects of poor lifestyle habits. We have more choice than ever before, yet do not always make the right choices when it comes to food. We lead busy lives that leave little time for the recognition of slowly developing illness, be it physical or psychological.
Conditions such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, stress, anxiety, chronic fatigue, insomnia, and nonspecific digestive problems, are likely to have multiple root causes, which conventional medicine alone may not always fully address. An important aspect of these potential causes is the food we eat. Indeed, risk factors related to poor diet are now thought to be the leading cause of death worldwide.
The risks of developing chronic conditions such as Cardiovascular disease and Type 2 Diabetes have been shown to be increased by numerous modifiable factors, all of which may be reduced through improved diet and nutrition.
"The part can never be well unless the whole is well"
Lifestyle approaches to medicine aim to empower you with the knowledge and confidence you need to optimise the management of any ongoing conditions, optimise health and fitness, prevent future problems, and ultimately to nurture yourself physically.
