NUTRITION

What is Nutrition?

Nutrition is the study of what we eat, how it affects our state of health and our also our sense of well-being. Lack of proper nutrients leads to degenerative changes, and feelings of un-ease, and eventually disease.

Changes in bowel movements, energy levels, digestive symptoms, mood, skin conditions, poor immunity, breathing difficulty, can all be attributed to foods which that body does not know how to digest or utilise.

Deficiencies of certain nutrients leave signs for a nutritionist to observe, such as spots on nails, pale tongue, etc. Similarly, excess consumption of certain foods can also produce signs or symptoms, which when the food is removed or limited, disappear.

Once a deficiency or excess is corrected, the body quickly has a chance to restore balance.

What happens in my appointment with Heidi?

As part of nutritional therapy, you may be asked to keep a 7 day food diary, or a food-mood-bowel diary. The purpose behind this is explained below. You will also be assessed and observed for signs like white spots or ridges on your nails, changes in and on the tongue (i.e a white colouring) and also height to weight ratios.

We use vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and probiotics to supply what is deficient, to gain results quickly. Your diet is addressed and meal options are given to help make changes that your body needs to heal and for you to feel your best.

Usually, we can’t remember feeling a particular pain, or feeling depressed when we’re better! Therefore documenting symptoms at the beginning of treatment and as it progresses, is important. This gives us the benchmarks to measure progress. Changes might be better more restful sleep.
