What is naturopathic nutritional medicine? October 08 2013, 0 Comments
Good question! Well first of all, it has nothing to do with calories; or points; or counting of any kind. It is not about demonising certain foods (except for ALL highly processed, lab-made toxic 'franken-foods', of course). Instead, it is about helping people understand their unique needs when it comes to what they should be putting in their bodies.
All real food is good food. And what do I mean when I say real food? I mean all foods found in nature and minimally processed (by which I mean cooked!) in a kitchen and not a factory.
Today we are bombarded with food on every corner, but unfortunately a lot of what is sold as food is not actually food at all. Instead it is a toxic brew of pseudo food ingredients packaged together cheaply and quickly, which not only has negligible nutritional value but also harms you in the process.
So, what are we to do?
Quite simply, boycott the packaged stuff and make delicious, whole-food meals for ourselves with delicious real-food ingredients.
These ingredients are: meat, fish, fruit, veg, eggs, nuts and seeds and to a lesser extent, beans, pulses and grains. Raw dairy is also highly nutritious for some as well.
And that's the other thing. These real whole foods are only beneficial to us if we can digest and absorb them well. So this is where nutritional therapy comes in. A nutritional therapist will examine what you are eating and how you are feeling and try and work out which foods and in what ratios will serve you best and leave you feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, rather than bloated, lethargic and overweight.
If you think nutritional therapy might be just what you need, why not book a consultation with me now.
