Nutrition is about what you eat but also how you eat it, where you eat it and what your body does with the food.
Whilst we can eat the most, clean, organic, locally grown food we can still fall ill.
How can that be?
Well, it is not just about what we put into our body as far as nutrients, but also how our body processes food. In other words how it digests and assimilates the food we eat.
Wellbeing is about the whole person, so nutrition plays an important part in your wellbeing.
In order to put together a full nutritional plan for you, I would like to know how other systems in your body are functioning. These include
- The digestive system
- The detoxification system such as the liver, the gall bladder, the lymphatic system The liver
- The hormonal system such as the adrenals, the hypothalamus, thyroid etc
- The microbiome
- The elimination system such as the bowels, sweating, lungs, skin
- The immune system
All the above dictate how food will behave in our body. This can be due to imbalances in the above systems and/or imbalances in our life, such as our career, relationships. movement and spirituality and emotional well being.
In essence, in a nutrition session, I will look at all the above using a heath profile form that is emailed out before the first appointment.
I hope this helps with understanding how nutrition may benefit your health. I would love to hear from you and see if I can help you achieve your health goals.
