Clinical nutrition includes both dietary modifications and supplementation of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to optimize health. This may be to balance deficiencies, assist the body in detoxification of toxic elements and to address specific health concerns.
Research shows us that a majority of conventional diseases can be prevented through dietary measures. Whether you are seeking help with weight loss, trying to recover from illness, seeking optimal nutrition for your wellbeing, or simply wanting to learn how to fit healthy eating into your busy schedule, a nutritional program will be prescribed specifically for your needs.
A nutritional program may include dietary and nutrient analysis, seasonal detoxification programs, recipe suggestions, and various diets that may be prescribed just for you.
Nutrition is at the very heart of Naturopathic Medicine and must be addressed in order to create an environment in the body in which wellness is able to flourish. Nutrition has proved to be the most controllable influence of health, and the relationship between diet and health is beyond doubt.
