Nutritional Counselling

From a traditional perspective Health is a state of balance. Therefore illness and dis-ease are states of being out of balance. Nutritional Counselling is concerned with and addresses patterns of imbalance rather than focusing on individual unrelated symptoms and treats the whole person.

Nutritional Counselling works from the belief that the right diet not only nourishes and strengthens the body and mind, but prevents diseases and can prolong life. Eastern modalities such as Chinese, Tibetan and Ayurvedic medicine all hold the concept of balance and harmony in the body-mind as a basic belief when it comes to health and disease. They believe that medicine and diet were one in the same thing.

Nutritional Counselling incorporates these views to achieve dramatic results in restoring vitality and energy to your mind and body, allowing healing to take place, thereby achieving a greater sense of overall wellbeing.

General life stress has been related to coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, diabetes and autoimmune disorders. The mind-body connection is so significant that recent research and behavioural medicine is suggesting that depression and anxiety can influence physiological processes as well.

Natural Nutritional Counselling involves addressing the underlying cause and prevention of dis-ease. A consultation consists of a full assessment of your health with a thorough case history, physical assessment of the pulses (TCM), hair, tongue, skin. A unique individualized health and dietary plan is provided which outlines the use of foods, nutrients, and lifestyle modifications. (Herbs when necessary)

Natural Nutritional Counselling focuses on:

  • Practical Eastern and Western philosophies, with an emphasis on helping you get started with a healthy way of living and eating and balancing the mind-body connection.
  • A dietary program that represents ancient and traditional approaches to natural health. How to choose appropriate seasonal foods and explore other relevant dietary factors for your health and longevity.
  • How to promote an understanding and awareness of how to best look after your health for each season.
  • Simple and effective dietary approaches designed specifically for each individual.
  • Support using only the highest standard of Wholefood Nutritional Supplements sourced from our human food chain. This, combined with herbs, exercise and dietary advice, lifestyle considerations and “Food as Medicine” are a powerful combination for health and longevity.
  • Successfully working with people on a wide range of concerns from digestive complaints through to depression and anxiety, this unique form of therapy looks at how we “feed” and “weave” together the relationship between body and mind.
  • Nutritional treatments for all forms of health concerns.**

** Although dietary advice can exert positive curative effects in some aspects, medicine and other treatments must not be neglected.
