Know the Facts
More and more research is now pointing to a healthy diet and lifestyle to prevent the onset of many of the ailments and diseases which are so prevalent in our society today.
A recent German study involving over 23,000 men studying the effects of lifestyle on chronic disease reported the following:
By giving up smoking, maintaining a BMI (body mass index) of less than 30, exercising over 3.5 hours a week AND eating a healthy diet, the following was observed:
Risk Reduction of developing Type II Diabetes
Risk reduction of heart attacks
Risk Reduction of having a Stroke
Risk reduction in Cancer Development
Benefits Of Nutritional Therapy
While it’s really amazing to see the difference dietary changes can make with such serious conditions, nutritional therapy is not limited to these conditions. The list below expands on the areas where positive dietary changes can help improve the quality of your life:
Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight
Supporting good mental health, benefiting mood, reducing anxiety etc
Improving energy levels and supporting better sleep
Digestive issues including IBS, dysbiosis and leaky gut
Female reproductive health including PMS and menopause
Nutritional support during pregnancy and lactation
Skin conditions like psoriasis and acne
Low immunity, are you always getting colds, infections etc
Headaches and/or migraines
During the initial consultation we will take time to go through and examine your existing diet and lifestyle. Recommended dietary and lifestyle changes can be implemented at your own pace (agreed during the consultation).
My goal is to effect diet and lifestyle changes over a period of time that will last. As our bodies get used to eating “real” foods they will begin to want these rather than the processed alternatives. You may even be surprised at how easy it is to make these changes and how much you enjoy eating what may have seemed unpalatable six months ago.
