Nutrition and health

Our diet has changed dramatically over recent generations and the foods we consume today may be processed and potentially low in nutritional quality, whilst farming methods have become more intensive, leading to a depletion of minerals in the soil, making it difficult to consume a nutritiously dense diet. Evidence suggests that the body requires the correct balance of nutrients to support the health of all the systems of the body (skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory, endocrine, immune, reproductive and integumentary), and to carry out many physiological processes such as making hormones, enzymes and neurotransmitters. Without the necessary nutrients, the body may struggle to perform these tasks, which over time may increase the risk of developing certain diseases. Diet has been shown to influences the balance between healthy and disease states, and is influenced by an individual’s genetic make-up. Common dietary chemicals can act on the human genome, either directly or indirectly, to alter gene expression or structure.
Are we over prescribing?
Half of the people in the UK are now taking prescription medication with rising use of antidepressants fueling a 47 per cent increase in drugs dispensed over the last decade, a major report suggests. Drugs can undoubtedly save lives, but our penchant for prescription drugs can sometimes lead to a masking of symptoms without fixing the root cause of the health issue. In many cases there are natural therapies available that are much safer, often more effective. However it is advisable that you should never start, change, or stop taking medications without first talking to your doctor.

What is nutrition therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care (British Association for Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapy - BANT). A registered Nutritional Therapist utilises a wide range of tools to assess and identify underlying causes of symptoms and potential nutritional imbalances, offering insight into how these may have contributed to an individual’s symptoms. Nutrition Therapy practice is a complimentary therapy that is appropriate for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and well-being. Practitioners work with clients to recommend appropriate personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes, taking into consideration any possible drug-nutrient interactions, client requirements, personal circumstances, physical, environmental and emotional stressors and varying financial circumstances. Essentially Nutrition therapy practice recognizes that everyone is unique, avoiding a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
