If you suffer from allergies or intolerances, struggle to manage your weight, have long-standing, chronic illnesses, have fertility issues or simply want to optimise your sporting performance, good nutrition can help.
Nutrition, health & performance
For your body to achieve optimal performance – whether you are fighting a long-standing illness, suffer from everyday gripes or are training for a marathon – good nutrition is essential.
Nutrients and other food components determine how the body functions, how it can protect itself against disease, or restore health in case of illness. In some cases, diet is a risk factor in a number of diseases, and science is increasingly showing that the balance between us being healthy or not may depend on our genetic profile and how that affects how we process food.
Some diet-regulated genes may play a role in the onset, incidence, progression, and/or severity of chronic diseases. Dietary intervention based on knowledge of nutritional requirements, nutritional status, and genotype can be used to help support the fight against chronic disease.
About nutritional science
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Registered Nutritional Scientists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health.
Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional.
