Nutrition is the cornerstone of good health. It includes not only food intake, but also absorption, assimilation, biosynthesis, catabolism and excretion. Food is full of complex, biologically active molecules that have an immense impact on our health.
I’m often asked what’s the best diet for weight loss. Unfortunately, there is no one size fits all. A well balanced diet combined with regular exercise can work for some, but this does not always work. There can often be an underlying cause that needs to be explored with the help of a nutritional health practitioner.
Certain foods have been shown in research to have a therapeutic effect on health conditions. Poor nutrition can lead to reduced immunity, increased susceptibility to disease, impaired physical and mental development, and reduced productivity.
We all control what we eat, when we eat and how we eat. By learning and understanding about the nutritional values of our food, we can help ourselves to reach nutritional health.
