Nutritional Therapy – Our Therapists
Father of medicine, Hippocrates said “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food” which is the essence of Nutritional therapy. Nutrition has a profound influence on our health and wellbeing. Not only it provides building blocks for the whole body, but it also sends signals our body can interpret and respond to accordingly. For example, if we eat wholesome, real food we signal the body that we are safe and secure which means this is a good time to repair, reproduce and thrive. On the other hand, when we eat nutritionally deprived, highly processed food, quite a different message is sent! Nutritional therapy focuses on identifying root causes of health problems, such as suboptimal nutrition, food sensitivities, obstacles to efficient digestion and absorption and other imbalances in the body. Once root causes are established, dietary and lifestyle modifications are employed to support the body’s innate healing mechanism and optimal health.

I offer a person-centred, naturopathic approach to healing focused on addressing the root causes of an ailment and not just the symptoms.
I believe conventional treatments often fail because they solely focus on masking symptoms while the root cause of the health issue persists. For long lasting recovery the root causes of an illness need to be removed.
