Nutrition and Diet
Nutrition and Diet is one aspect that a Naturopath will explore. Once the nutritional status of each individual is assessed a program will be created the most appropriate nutritional diet including appropriate supplements.
The food we eat contains nutrients which support body function. The body also stores these nutrients for times of increased need. Malnutrition can be defined as over- nutrition or under-nutrition; both resulting in sub-optimal bodily function. This can increase your risk of disease. A majority of malnutrition comes from an increase in nutritional demand due to illness, inflammation, poor digestion or absorption.The body’s nutritional health equals the sum of its nutritional state.
