NUTRITIONAL THERAPY – CAPE TOWN
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutritional science in the promotion of optimum health and peak performance, disease prevention and patient care.
It is a science-based complementary approach (working with the medical profession) that uses diet, lifestyle and, if necessary, nutritional supplements to enable individuals to maximize their health potential. It seeks, through a functional approach, to identify core clinical imbalances that underlie various disease conditions. These include:
- Hormonal & neurotransmitter imbalances
- Detoxification & biotransformational imbalances
- Immune imbalances
- Inflammatory imbalances
- Digestive, absorptive, & microbiological imbalances
- Structural imbalances
Functional medicine is personalised medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of merely symptoms in chronic disease. The ‘patient’s story’ is a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to encourage the body’s natural healing and immune processes, boost energy levels, improve mental well-being, restore vitality and achieve optimum health.
