Choosing food and a diet that promotes good health and wellbeing is certainly not a one-size-fits-all type of plan. Healthy diet is a term that is constantly used when talking about what we eat and don’t eat, however a nutritionist trains in the ‘science of food’ and believes in using ‘food as medicine’ to support your journey to health and wellbeing.
Finding the right types of food, and balance of food intake for your body and your lifestyle, can support you to feel good, both inside and out. A practitioner can provide a nutritional plan as part of a strategy to improve energy, metabolism, reduce the chance of obesity and other diet related conditions, and promote a healthier you.
What food related issues can be supported by natural therapists?
Allergies and food intolerances can be the cause of an array of wider health issues – you may have skin reactions to certain foods or feel bloated, gassy and fatigued. Having sensitivities to food can be complicated to manage in your day-to-day life, especially if you’re not sure what is causing it. Identifying your food intolerances is a first step that your Naturopath or nutritionist can test for. Once you have your results, they will help you put a plan in place to eliminate the sources of your allergies and tolerances and improve your health and wellbeing.
Food, herbs and spices can also help you boost your immunity. If you are feeling run-down then visit your nutritionist, naturopath, practitioner of western herbal medicine or Chinese herbal medicine to see how they can help you, especially if you have a nutrient deficiency, so together you can build a plan to get back on track.
A healthy diet and plan recommended by a nutritionist can also help if you have more chronic health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or digestive issues.
