Nutritional Medicine

You can’t put the wrong type of petrol in your car and expect it to perform well, just as you can’t put the wrong type of food in your body and expect it to remain healthy. Good nutrition is the core of good health and everyone is an individual. I will teach you the rights and wrongs of food for your body so you can regain your health now and into the future. 

Unfortunately, there is a lot of misleading information about nutrition which makes it very confusing and difficult to decide what is right and wrong for you. Our mainstream medical system is not taught about nutrition. To study to become a Doctor, you will only receive up to 25 hours in total of Nutrition lectures. This compares with the 3 years full time I studied to become a Clinical Nutritionist. Is it any wonder that people are ill informed about nutrition?

Then we are given the food pyramid, which was actually a big advertisement for the grain and dairy industry. It was originally developed in Sweden in 1974 and then in the USA in 1992 it was introduced by the United States Department of Agriculture. It was literally a very successful, giant advertising campaign for the wheat agricultural industry. No wonder people don’t know what a healthy, balanced diet looks like.  

We are all individuals and need to be treated as such. My years of study and clinical experience has shown me there is no “one size fits all” treatment for any health condition and the same can be said for diet. A particular food or nutritional supplement may be beneficial for one person and detrimental to another.   Depending on the underlying causes, if nutritional supplementation is required then the dosages will also vary from person to person.

As a Clinical Nutritionist, I will analyse your diet and design an eating plan that suits your body.
