Nutrition

 

Nutritional Medicine combines nutrition with naturopathic principles.

Naturopathic principles respect the inherent ability of the body to heal and restore itself if given the appropriate nutrients and environmental conditions.  Good nutrition and digestion play an important part in maintaining health and disease prevention.  “You are what you eat” should really be “you are what you absorb”.  Nutritional needs vary depending on your health status and lifestyle.  Your nutritional needs may not be met by your current diet due to factors such as - poor gastrointestinal function, excessive alcohol intake, stress, increased needs due to life stages (growth spurts), medical conditions or pregnancy, certain medications.  Nutrition needs to be tailored to each individual, there is no “one size fits all” approach to health.
