Our bodies are built from, fuelled by and repaired by food. What we eat affects every cell and system in our body, such as ageing, hormonal problems, diabetes, heart disease and many other health problems. Good nutrition regulates the body.
Poor digestion, allergies, toxic overload, deficiencies and bad eating habits can all contribute to the origin of illnesses. Food affects our hormones and cellular regeneration. If our cells do not renew and repair each day, we age faster and illnesses develop.
Nutritional therapy consists of using diet, specific foodand possibly supplements to improve health. It is certainly true that ‘you are what you eat’ but you are also what you absorb. Looking at digestion is crucial.
A nutritionist might also recommend specific food supplements and dietary modifications in some cases, to help digestion, balance body systems, promote better absorption of food and boost natural immune function.
