Nutrition and Herbal Medicine
Nutrition is the provision, to cells and organisms, of the materials necessary (in the form of food) to support life.
Unfortunately, at times it is very difficult to get the goodness we need out of our food. Our soils, farming, storage and preserving methods compromise much of the important vitamin and mineral content of our food.
Many packaged foods also contain anti-nutrients, fortifications, additives and preservatives that consumers aren’t made aware of.
A Nutritionist will look at your diet and suggest the foods appropriate to your health needs. They will also keep you up to date on how to minimise the health risk associated with particular foods. Many common health problems can be prevented or alleviated with good nutrition e.g. cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
Good nutrition involves effort, not just convenience and is essential for good long-term health.
Herbal medicines are fantastically effective for a variety of illnesses, or to help you to reach the peak of your health. Herbs are the oldest form of medicine known to mankind and some have thousands of years of use along with modern day scientific research to attest to their efficacy.
The beauty of using liquid herbal extracts is that a mixture of herbs can be specifically blended for the individuals needs.
