Nutritional Advice

If you want to Move well…Think well…and Be well then embracing a healthy and natural balance to your dietary intake is vital.

The advice you take can sometimes depend on how open you are to change. Many of us grow up with traditional ideas of what ‘good food’ is, or use food as a reward for good behaviour or celebrating a successful event. There are also social and cultural experiences that shape our eating habits, that can sometimes lead to various dietary imbalances.

If you want to learn more about adopting a healthy, natural and balanced approach to your diet make an appointment for a wellness evaluation to start you on the right track alternatively book a consultation with our nutritional therapist.

Irina Omelkova Irina Omelkova is our Nutritional Therapist.

A nutritional therapist is working with a healthy individual in order to prevent disease, or they may be working with a sick individual to ease and minimize symptoms of a developed disease. Nutritional therapists often deal with the outcome of a disease as opposed to focusing largely on the cause and treatment of the disease itself (like that of dietitians and nutritionists).

Nutritional therapists recognize that every person is unique and therefore has an individual set of dietary requirements. It is a nutritional therapist’s job to establish whether or not an individual’s diet is right for their body, or if it is to blame, in part for ill-health. If this is the case, a treatment programme will be formulated to ensure that diet is properly balanced and contains all of the necessary components.
