Holistic Nutritional Medicine is about creating health through nutrition – we are what we eat! Holistic Nutrition addresses the whole person and supports all body systems in order to enable the body to heal itself. It focuses on treating the underlying cause (and not just symptoms) with the use of non-toxic, natural remedies.
Nutritional Medicine takes an integrative approach and combines evidence-based clinical research with age old traditional wisdom. It follows the philosophy that prevention is better than cure and focuses on developing long lasting strategies to maintain good health. Nutritional Medicine can be used on its own, in conjunction with other therapies and to support conventional medical treatment. Most medical conditions benefit or can even be reversed with nutritional therapy.
Nutritional Medicine aims to use the most natural and least invasive form of medicine. Food as medicine is used as part of all treatment plans. Therapeutic vitamin, mineral, herbal and nutrient formulations are often used achieve specific physiological effects and fast-track recovery. Other remedies such as Bach and Bush flowers and creams may also be used. Investigations may include blood tests or a wide range of functional pathology tests, such as for food intolerances and allergies, digestive function, hormone profiles, detoxification pathways, heavy metals or hair tissue mineral analysis.
