Nutritional medicine is a holistic approach to the interactions of both nutrition and environment on human health. Nutrients are the building blocks of our physical body. When the body is supplied with the correct balance of foods, vitamins and minerals we remain healthy.
We are all unique in terms of biochemistry, metabolism, anatomy and genetics. Our internal environment differs in gut flora, integrity of the intestinal wall and the immune system. All of these affect our ability to process foods, absorb nutrients, detoxify and expel wastes.
Living an optimally healthy lifestyle provides the best conditions for the body to both prevent and heal from disease states. Improving our diet by eating more fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains, drinking plenty of water and keeping our bodies moving is a good start. All too often we consume foods that are highly processed and overcooked or of poor quality and little nutritional value.
Nutrition plays an important role in virtually every medical condition. It follows that correcting nutritional imbalances is fundamental to the prevention and treatment of many common conditions. The correction of nutritional requirements is done by focussing on the nutrients in whole foods, with supplements provided if necessary.
